STEERING

9/2/2014 - ORANGE PARK , FL
KNOCKING IN THE STEERING WHEEL WHILE DRIVING ON SMOOTH ROADS, FELT MOSTLY DURING WARMER TEMPERATURES ABOVE 80 DEGREES F. MOST NOTICEABLE ABOVE 95 DEGREES F WHEN DRIVING ON FLAT ROADS THAT REQUIRE NO COUNTER STEERING TO MAINTAIN THE LANE. TAKEN IT TO FORD TWICE AND HAVE BEEN TOLD ONCE THAT THE KNOCK COULD NOT BE FELT, SECOND VISIT TO A DIFFERENT DEALER THE SERVICE MANAGER FELT THE PROBLEM BUT THE FRONT END TECHNICIAN STATED IT IS NORMAL ROAD FEEL. BOTH FRONT TIRES ARE WEARING ON THE OUTER TWO TREADS AS IF THE FRONT END NEEDED AN ALIGNMENT BUT BOTH DEALERSHIPS HAVE CHECKED THE ALIGNMENT STATING IT IS GOOD. VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS OF THIS TRUCK, THE SAME HIGH TEMPERATURES ALSO CAUSE THE TRUCK TO BE VERY SENSITIVE THE CROSSWINDS AND PASSING VEHICLES. ANY MALFUNCTIONING STEERING PROBLEMS SHOULD HAVE THE ATTENTION OF THE NTSB FOR SAFETY CONCERNS AND CERTAINLY THE CONSUMER PROTECTION AGENCY THAT NEEDS TO PROTECT PEOPLE WHO PURCHASE VEHICLES WITH FULL WARRANTIES BUT WHO'S PROBLEMS ARE BEING IGNORED BY MANUFACTURES.

ENGINE

8/27/2014 - ATLANTA, GA
THIS BRAND NEW TRUCK IS MISFIRING. WHEN I INQUIRED ABOUT WHY THIS WAS HAPPENING I WAS TOLD THAT FORD IS STILL INVESTIGATING THE PROBLEM BUT HAS NOT EVEN REACHED OUT THE CUSTOMERS WHO JUST PAID ALL THIS MONEY FOR THESE TRUCKS LIKE ME AT A SUM OF 50,000.00. I'M TOLD THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE 2011 WHEN THE ECOBOOST ENGINE WAS INTRODUCED. WHERE IS THE CUSTOMER SERVICE FORD! SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM WITH THIS ECOBOOST ENGINE AND YOU CAN'T TELL ME YOU DIDN'T KNOW OF THESE PROBLEMS BEFORE CONTINUING TO SELL THESE TRUCKS TO PEOPLE. I THOUGHT YOU WERE BETTER THAN CHEVROLET BUT I'M STARTING TO FEEL DIFFERENTLY.

WHEELS

8/22/2014 - BRADENTON, FL
THERE WAS A CLUNKING NOISE AND THEN GRINDING NOISES, PARTICULARLY LOUD WHEN APPLYING THE BRAKES. I STOPPED AT THE NEAREST TIRE/BRAKE CENTER (TIRES PLUS, 2975 UNIVERSITY PKWY, SARASOTA FL). THEY FOUND THAT THE FRONT RIGHT BRAKE CALIPER BOLTS WERE COMPLETELY MISSING AND THE INSIDE OF WHEEL WAS GROOVED WHERE IT HAD BEEN RUBBING AGAINST THE BOLT BEFORE IT BROKE OFF. THEY ADVISED TAKING IT TO FORD, WHICH I DID. FORD KEPT THE CAR AND FIXED THE CALIPER AND REPLACED THE WHEEL WITH A NEW WHEEL, BUT DID NOT HAVE ANY EXPLANATION FOR HOW BOLTS COULD WORK LOOSE.
