problem #2

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,000 miles
Took vehicle to the dealership six moths ago had vibrations coming from the car and steering. Took car to the dealership and was advised there was no problem. Six months later problem kept recurring and took car to independent shop and was advised I needed right upper and lower ball joint. This is a 2004 F150 FX4 this should not be happening on a barely 2 year old car. I'm lucky my car did not buck on me on the road.

2004 Ford F150 problems with upper ball joint assembly as well as tire wear. The upper joint was the cause of the tire wear on one tire. The consumer stated since he purchased the vehicle it exhibited a rattle noise, the side view mirror had to be replaced because it was vibrating so badly, the hood had to be reinforced so it would not flutter at highway speeds. The vehicle needed a new transmission.
