VEHICLE DIED WHILE DRIVING ON CITY STREET. ENGINE WOULD TURN OVER BUT NOT FIRE. HAD TO BE TOWED TO FORD DEALER AT COST OF $90. WAS ADVISED BY DEALER SERVICE THAT THE PROBLEM WAS FUSE 27 MELTED AND DAMAGED THE FUSE BOX. THIS IS A KNOWN PROBLEM FOR F-150 VEHICLES FOR YEARS 2009 - 2014. TSB 15-0137 WAS ISSUED IN SEPTEMBER OF 2015 BUT NO RECALL WAS ISSUED. COST TO REPAIR WAS $466 OUT OF MY POCKET. FOR A KNOWN PROBLEM WITH SIX MODEL YEARS THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RECALL. JUST GLAD I WAS NOT ON THE INTERSTATE WHEN THIS HAPPENED.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE IN MOTION, LIGHT CAME ON BRAKE FLUID LOW. I TOOK IT TO A MECHANIC, AND WE LOOKED, BUT DIDN'T IMMEDIATELY SEE ANY PUDDLE, OR SIGN OF RAPID LOSS OF FLUID, FILLED MASTER CYLINDER BACK UP, AND DROVE 15 MILES HOME. ON THE WAY, I NOTICED THE PEDAL WAS SPONGY, WHEN I GOT HOME, I LOOKED, AND HAD LOST 1/4 OF THE FLUID IN THE MASTER CYLINDER.I GOT IN THE TRUCK, PRESSED THE BRAKE PEDAL, FELT IT GOING DOWN, GOT OUT, AND SAW IT WAS LEAKING RAPIDLY FROM A JUNCTION OF THE BRAKE HOSE GOING FROM THE MASTER CYLINDER TO THE (ABS BOX?) WHERE IT GOES FROM RUBBER TO METAL. I GOT A NEW ONE FROM THE DEALER TODAY DUBLIN FORD, DUBLIN GA. [$33.00] AND NOTICED THAT IS HAS BEEN MUCH IMPROVED OVER THE ORIGINAL. THIS TELLS ME THAT FORD KNEW IT HAD A PROBLEM, WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RECALL ITEM, AND DIDN'T RECALL FOR IT. IT ALSO TELLS ME THAT THERE ARE PROBABLY A BUNCH OF F150'S OUT THERE THAT ARE AT RISK OF BRAKE FAILURE DUE TO THE FAILURE OF A $33 PART. *TR

Summary of Complaint

'09 F150 FX4 W/ 40,900MI. AFTER DRIVING HOME AND GETTING TO MY DRIVEWAY, I HAD TO DRAG MY RIGHT FRONT TIRE INTO THE PARKING SPOT - IT WAS TOTALLY LOCKED AND EXTREMELY HOT/SMOKING. UPON INVESTIGATING, I COULD NOT GET THE BRAKE CALIPER PISTONS TO RETRACT UNLESS I CRACKED THE BLEEDER OPEN. LAST NIGHT I REPLACED EVERYTHING BRAKE RELATED ON THE WHEEL INCLUDING THE RUBBER FLEX LINE. UPON INVESTIGATION, THE CALIPER WAS FINE. WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS/IS THAT THE BRACKET THAT HOLDS THE RUBBER FLEX BRAKE LINE WAS OVER CRIMPED AND PARTIALLY RESTRICTING THE BRAKE FLUID. SECONDLY, CORROSION/RUST HAD BUILT UP BETWEEN THE OUTSIDE OF THE RUBBER BRAKE LINE AND THE INSIDE OF THE BRACKET. AS THE RUST CONTINUED TO BUILD, IT COMPRESSED THE BRAKE LINE UNTIL IT WAS COMPLETELY PINCHED. BY ESTIMATE, I'D SAY THE RIGHT ONE WAS 100% RESTRICTED, AND THE LEFT WAS 90% RESTRICTED. UPON SPEAKING WITH A NEIGHBOR WITH AN '08 F150, HE HAD A VERY SIMILAR OCCURRENCE WHERE THE TIRE WAS ROLLED OFF THE RIM WHEN THE TIRE LOCKED. HE HAD HAVE IT TOWED FOR REPAIRS. MY CONCERN IS THIS IS A FLORIDA TRUCK WITH LIMITED EXPOSURE TO THE MIDWEST. THE RESTRICTED BRAKE LINE OVER TIME HAD TO HAVE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED MY BRAKING CAPACITY OF THE FRONT WHEELS. OBVIOUSLY, AT THE END, IF I WAS ON THE HIGHWAY AND THE BRAKE HAD LOCKED AT SPEED, SIGNIFICANT CONTROLLABILITY ISSUES WOULD HAVE RESULTED. IN THE PICTURES, YOU CAN SEE THE RUST ON THE VICE THAT CAME OUT WHEN WE PRIED THE BRACKET OPEN AND SLIDE THE LINE OUT. THE OTHER PICTURE HAS WHERE THE PAD BURNED INTO THE ROTOR DUE TO EXCESS HEAT AFTER I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO RETRACT THE CALIPER AND FREE THE ROTOR. *TR

Summary of Complaint

PROBLEM 1: MY TRUCKS TRACTION CONTROL ENGAGES ON SNOW AND THROWS THE WHEELS INTO A SLIDE RATHER THAN STABILIZES THE VEHICLE. I TURN SWAY AND/OR TRACTION CONTROL OFF AND IT TURNS ITSELF BACK ON WHENEVER I STOP AND THEN GET BACK IN AND RESTART THE TRUCK. PROBLEM 2: THIS TRUCK WILL NOT GIVE AN ACCURATE READ ON GAS IN THE TANK AS THE NEEDLE IS ALWAYS GETTING STUCK. I GAUGE BY MILES GONE AS TO WHEN I NEED GAS. (JUST STOPPED TO GET GAS THOUGHT I WAS OUT BUT NEEDLE WENT OVER 1/2 WHICH IS WHAT I PUT IN.) BUT THERE ARE MORE ELECTRICAL ISSUES SUCH AS THE DOORS THAT UNLOCK DURING THE NIGHT WHEN I HAVE LOCKED ALL DOORS, BY MORNING ONE OR MORE DOORS OFTEN ON PASSENGER SIDE UNLOCK THEMSELVES. AND SYNC ALWAYS DOES IT'S OWN THING WITH MY IPHONE X, NEVER KNOW IF IT WILL CONNECT OR BE DISCONNECTED WHILE DRIVING. SOMETIMES IT GOES FROM HANDS FREE ANSWER IN THE MIDDLE OF A CONVERSATION TO SUDDENLY IN PRIVACY MODE. THESE PROBLEMS ARE WHILE IN MOTION AND SOMETIMES WHEN THE VEHICLE IS PARKED. PROBLEM 3: TRUCK SPEEDOMETER IS VERY DIFFICULT TO READ DUE TO HASH MARKS FOR SPEED INSTEAD OF NUMBERS AT 20, 40, 60, ETC SPEEDS. NEARLY GOT A TICKET FOR LOOKING DOWN TOO LONG TO READ MY DISPLAY. STARTING TO HATE THIS TRUCK AS I NEVER KNOW WHAT IT WILL DO OR NOT DO. THIS IS DANGEROUS AS IT IS A CONSISTENT DISTRACTION. SO MUCH FOR SAFETY DUE TO TECHNOLOGY. IF OTHERS HAVE THESE ISSUES WELL IT'S NO WONDER PEOPLE ARE DRIVING SO BADLY NOW.

Summary of Complaint

THE REAR DRIVE SHAFT BETWEEN TRANSFER CASE AND REAR DIFFERENTIAL IS HELD BY A DRIVE SHAFT BRACKET/BEARING WHERE THE TOP OF IT IS WELDED TO THE FRAME CROSS MEMBER. DURING STOP AND GO TRAFFIC THE POORLY WELDED BRACKET CAME LOOSE. AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURE THE WELD WAS POORLY DONE AND HAD NO PENETRATION INTO THE METAL. THE METAL WAS NOT TORN AT ALL AND BROKE COMPLETELY CLEAN OFF WHICH DICTATE A VERY POOR JOB ON THE WELD ITSELF. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE THIS PART IS BASICALLY A DUAL SHARP BLADES AT THE WELD BREAK, CONNECTED TO THE DRIVE SHAFT AT FAST RPMS WOULD TAKE LITTLE TO NO TIME TO PUNCTURE AND IGNITE THE NEAR BY FUEL TANK. AS I WAS TRAVELING AT SLOW SPEEDS I WAS ABLE TO STOP THE VEHICLE RIGHT AWAY. IF THIS BREAK OCCURRED AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS I FEEL THAT IT WOULD HAVE EASILY PUNCTURED THE FUEL TANK AND IGNITED THE FUEL CAUSING CATASTROPHIC FIRE AND PROBABLE EXPLOSION THAT COULD CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH.

DRIVING ON A CITY STREET WHEN THE ENGINE SUDDENLY SHUT DOWN AND QUIT RUNNING. I WAS ALMOST REAR ENDED BY A SEMI TRUCK AND ONLY AVOIDED A MAJOR ACCIDENT BECAUSE I HAD ROOM TO GO TO THE RIGHT AND THE SEMI HAD ROOM TO SWERVE AROUND ME ON THE LEFT. WHEN I HAD IT TOWED TO THE FORD DEALER THEY INFORMED ME THAT IT WAS A MELTED FUSE BUT THAT THEY WERE ALREADY AWARE OF THE PROBLEM AND HAD A "FIX" KIT IN STOCK AND THE REPAIR PROCESS ALREADY DOCUMENTED TO REROUTE THAT FUSE. THIS MEANS THAT FORD IS AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM AND I PRESUME WAS JUST WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO DIE BEFORE ISSUING A RECALL.I HAVE THE REPAIR ORDER AVAILABLE IF NEEDED. WHEN I CONTACTED FORD DIRECTLY THEY INFORMED ME THERE WAS NO RECALL AND THEREFORE I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ENTIRE $650.00 COST AND DID NOT SEEM TO CARE ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF A MAJOR ACCIDENT WHEN THE ENGINE SUDDENLY STOPS RUNNING.

THE PRICE WAS ALSO EXTREME FOR THAT PART. $372.18 JUST FOR THE PARTS. I PAID AN TOTAL OF $631,.65 FOR THIS ISSUE. FORD CASE NUMBER# CAS-16048449-G3B4MI
