problem #4

F-150 King Ranch 3.5L V6 Ecoboost

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,500 miles

For the second time, the rear differential failed in my 2106 F-150. Tech stated the pinion gear was extremely difficult to turn and the required torque to turn the gear and significantly higher than normal. I brought the light whine in the gear to the attention of a Ford dealership in August and then again in November. Both times they said it was normal. It was not! After the gear finally started making a grinding noise, I took it into Ford where they replaced the rear differential again! I am not happy!

I'm surprised that i have already had a Failure of a Major Drivetrain component within the first 2 month of owning the truck, truck could end up being a lemon.
