This will be the third time advising NHTSA and Ford concerning the same problems stated before.those are the the rear end shuddering upon acceleration, the whining noise from the rear end, the automatic transmission slippage, the whining noise from the power steering unit and last but not least the brakes constant squealing.I have gone to three different Ford service centers in three differeent states.NY, NJ, nc.of all the dealerships svc centers Mahwah Ford in NJ spent the most time investigating these problems.shultz Ford NY and cella Ford nc forget them (no help what so ever just a bunch of lame people with lame excuses)total visits 6 and nothing has been replaced even upon my insistance. I owned a 1998 F-150(best truck to date) I'm sorry that I traded it in for this 2004 bucket of bolts.
