Summary of Complaint

I am certain my vehicle does not shift correctly. It often seems to be in the wrong gear for the terrain and according to the dashboard seems to skip gears. Also it seems to not get the power to the road as if the transmission slips. It is intermittent. The start stop feature which I usually turn off, sometimes does not work correctly. I have only had this vehicle for about 5 months. When the start stop feature is off the vehicle still acts as if its on. I have read blogs of many people having similar transmission issues. A local Ford dealer told me it drove fine, nature of the beast and it shifts that way to save fuel. Also on off the gas there is a hard clunk which seem to harsh. I feel like at some point something is going to fail.

NHTSA ID Number: 11424695
Consumer Location: PORTLAND, OR
VIN: 1fter1fH0kl****

Summary of Complaint

The spare tire is held tight against the under body of the pickup bed with a chain crank. The gear mechanism that raises and lowers the tire slowly released the tire to the point that edge of the tire (presumably due to bumps in the road) contacted the pavement. The tire became almost vertical and at a right angle to the direction of the vehicle. An estimated 4 miles was drive before the driver became aware of the problem when an observant motorcyclist motioned the vehicle over. The tire was very hot where it contacted the pavement but had not yet ignited. The tire was roped to the frame to keep it off the pavement to safely drive to a service center. The photo of the tire under the truck shows its approximate position during the incident. The actual position was almost vertical. The photo of the tire chain clamp bracket shows it's position without the tire. The crank mechanism was damaged to the point that the chain could not raise or lower the bracket. A tire fire would have resulted if the vehicle was driven much further. The manufacturer will be contacted.

Summary of Complaint

The brake pedal at times goes almost to the floor. One time it traveled past the gas pedal and my foot engaged it causing it to lunge forward. Had there been a vehicle in the parking spot ahead of me, I would have hit it. I've taken it to the dealer but they claim this is a "normal characteristic for this vehicle". This is both an accident waiting to happen and a problem in need of a solution/recall.

I FOUND INFORMATION THAT FORD USES PLANT BASED MATERIALS TO COAT THE WIRING AND TO MAKE SOME OF THE HOSES. I'VE TRIED DIFFERENT MEASURES TO PREVENT THE RODENTS FROM DAMAGING THE WIRING TO NO AVAIL. THIS DAMAGE CAUSES MY ELECTRICAL SYSTEM TO FAIL AND KNOCKED OUT MY HORN AND OTHER VEHICLE FEATURES. IT DOESN'T SEEM FAIR AND GOOD BUSINESS PRACTICE BY FORD TO KEEP USING THESE PRODUCTS AND NOT TO INFORM BUYERS ABOUT THIS ISSUE. MY WIFE OWNS A HONDA AND HER VEHICLE ISN'T TOUCHED BY THE RODENTS.

Summary of Complaint

ON WEDNESDAY OCT. 14, 2020 ON A TRIP FROM GAINESVILLE, GA TO PENSACOLA, FL I EXPERIENCED A PROBLEM WITH THIS VEHICLE THAT I WOULD CLASSIFY AS POTENTIALLY CATASTROPHIC. WHILE DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE (I-85), I USED THE CRUISE CONTROL SEVERAL TIMES AT SPEEDS BETWEEN 60 -70 MPH. IN MONTGOMERY, AL, I EXITED OFF THE INTERSTATE AND STOPPED AT A STOP LIGHT. ALL OF A SUDDEN THE ACCELERATION INCREASED WHERE I HAD TO PUT MAXIMUM PRESSURE ON THE BRAKES TO PREVENT THE TRUCK FROM CRASHING INTO PASSING TRAFFIC. I THEN MOVED THE SELECT SHIFT FROM DRIVE TO NEUTRAL AND THEN TO PARK, WHICH STOPPED THE ACCELERATION. THE ACCELERATION WAS SO SEVERE THAT THE REAR WHEELS WERE SPINNING. AGAIN WE EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM TWICE MORE ON OUR WAY TO PENSACOLA AT VARIOUS STOP LIGHTS. THAT DAY I HAD NOT YET DETERMINED THAT THERE MAY BE AN ISSUE WITH THE OPERATION OF CRUISE CONTROL. THE NEXT MORNING THURSDAY, OCT. 15, I BROUGHT THE TRUCK INTO WORLD FORD IN PENSACOLA, FL. FOR A DIAGNOSIS. THE SERVICE TECHNICIAN TOOK THE TRUCK OUT ON THE HIGHWAY BUT WAS NOT ABLE TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM. WHEN HE USED THE DIAGNOSIS MACHINE HE DETECTED A GLITCH IN TEST A4 WHICH INDICATED AN INTERMITTENT INOPERATIVE BRAKE LAMP SWITCH. HE WAS NOT 100% SURE THE BRAKE LAMP SWITCH WAS THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM BUT HE CHANGED THE SWITCH. HE WAS VERY CONCERNED OF THE POTENTIAL SERIOUSNESS OF THE SITUATION. WE NEVER HAD ANOTHER ISSUE WHILE IN PENSACOLA OR ON THE WAY HOME, BUT I NEVER TURNED THE CRUISE CONTROL ON, AS MY CONFIDENCE LEVEL WAS STILL VERY LOW.

Summary of Complaint

I RECEIVED NOTIFICATION FROM FORDPASS THAT MY 2019 RANGER WAS IN DEEP SLEEP MODE AND THAT I NEEDED TO MANUALLY START IT. I GOT INTO THE VEHICLE AND DEPRESSED THE BRAKE PEDAL AS NORMAL AND PRESSED THE START BUTTON. MANY THINGS HAPPENED SIMULTANEOUSLY. MOSTLY LIGHTS FLASHING ON THE DASH AND EVENTUALLY THE HEADLIGHTS SEEMED TO BE SENDING MORSE CODE. BUT THE ENGINE BARELY RESPONDED AT ALL. LATER I HOOKED UP A BATTERY CHARGER AND WHEN SWITCHED ON THE GAUGE BOUNCED BACK AND FORTH SO FAST IT APPEARED TO BE AN AIRCRAFT PROPELLER. THE VEHICLE WAS STATIONARY IN MY DRIVEWAY.
