2005 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #4

Aug 132008

F-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Ford F-150. While driving 45-55 mph, the vehicle experiences moderate to severe shaking. The road conditions are not a factor. The shaking is so severe that the contact has to stop the vehicle. The brakes, brake pads, and rotors were changed, but that has not remedied the failure. The windshield wipers also raised away from the windshield when the shaking occurred. When the contact shut off the engine and restarted the vehicle, the shaking stopped. All four of the tires were replaced. The dealer disassembled and rebuilt the emergency brake, which was dragging and wore out the lining. The approximate failure and current mileages were 45,000. Updated 09/10/08. The consumer stated the problem was intermittent. Updated 09/12/08.

I just bought a 2005 Ford F150 and everytime you ride on the highway between 65 and 75 miles per hour the steering wheel shakes very bad. Its real annoying that no one seems to know what it is or how to fix it.

F-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,500 miles
I had about 9500 miles on my 2005 F150 when the alignment needed repair. I had it aligned at a local dealer, and they couldn't get my steering wheel straight with the road. Had taken back several times, and they still could not fix the problem. Truck still has a hard pull to the left when steering wheel is straightened out.

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,000 miles
Popping from rear-end at slow speeds and shuttering at down shift on highway. Local dealer said rear pinion gear out of alignment, and clutch packs were bad they had to order parts to fix the problems.
