Hi, I have a ford f150 (Lobo in México) with less than 25,000 miles and it started to make a noise in the left front brake disc. It was just like when you're braking with wet brakes, but It was really annoying. Last sunday, it became worse, cause I wanted to drive in reverse, the reverse entered (by the transmission) but when I pushed the gas pedal, it was just like when the TCS activates, but in the front wheel (it's RWD, so it was strange) and the truck didn't move in reverse. I called to Ford and drove the truck to the dealer this monday. They called me later to my house and told me that the disc, the caliper and the brake pads were destroyed, the pistons were broken and that could not be covered by the warranty. I felt angry because, well, it's only 2 years old, 25000 miles and I don't drive it with a heavy load, but they said: no warranty.
I towed it into another place specialized in brakes and they said it's going to be in about 16,500 MXP (like 1400 USD).
I'm angry with Ford, this is my 7th Ford vehicle and this never happened before, some vehicles, like a '01 Grand Marquis have more than 69000 miles and the only trouble is with the brake pads.
Hope this doesn't happen to other F150 owners...
