problem #3

Nov 132017

F-150 XLT 5.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,189 miles

Advantrac light on power steering quit and turn signals will not stay on. Was going to trade it this weekend, now that's on hold.

Update from Dec 4, 2017: had to re place rack steering not sure why ford will not stand behind this and do a recall(maybe time for a toyota)!

problem #2

Aug 202017

F-150 XLT 3.5L Ecoboost

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,916 miles

I've worked for fords for 35 yrs. Always bought ford cars & trucks & have never had as much problems as this 2012 f-150!

This truck is just over 5yrs. old with 43916 mi., never driven in the winters & always garaged! I have had it into the garage every year with something major wrong! I've had 2 turbo sensors go out, spark plugs etc. replaced.

Now the dashboard lights up & says SERVICE ADVANCE TRAC! Over $1400 to fix! Fords say they're not going to pay for it! Is it going to cost thousands of $$$ every year??? If that's the way they are going to treat me then I'll never buy another ford, going to let all my friends & family know, & blast it all over the internet!
