Death wobble. Steering shakes almost uncontrollably after hitting a bump in the highway. Happens more and more frequently at speeds above 60 mph. Wheel balancing and alignment did not make improvements. Dealer found no issues and could not replicate the shaking.

  • 20,000 miles
My Ford F-250 experienced a severe "death wobble" on 3 occasions causing the need to slow down from 65 mph to 25 mph on the freeway during normal traffic. On one occasion, the shaking was so bad it went to the adjacent driving lane while on an on-ramp and was completely uncontrollable. The vehicle is at the Ford dealership now and having the steering shock replaced but the service rep stated they are just trying this as a solution but do not know the root cause. They are also requesting that I pay for an alignment as another possible solution. The truck has roughly 20K miles on it and is completely stock (less a camper shell). I do not feel safe putting my 2 year old, 7 year old, or wife in a very expensive vehicle while having to worry if the truck will cause a wreck due to a factory defect.

At highway speeds when vehicles comes across chatter in rough roads or at bridges vehicles steering violently shakes. Vehicle is difficult to control. To regain control by lightly hitting the brake to reduce speed to about 20 miles per hour so vehicle stops shaking. I could take a video of it if you like just contact me.

While driving about 30 mph on mountain road at cade's cove tn. The engine shut off, no indication before hand. All small icon showed on dash including battery. Just made it to the other side of road pull off area or other wise I would have been in center of road. No power steering. Turner key off and waited about 1 minute. Turned key on and engine started up. Was able to return to our campground. This could have been a very serious safety / accident as this mountain road is very narrow and many turns going back to gatlinburg tn. From cade's cove.
