I've now taken this truck to two local car audio retailers. Both have said this isn't the first brand new Ford they've seen with this same problem. They both said another common problem is for the CD changer to repeatedly shuffle through the discs when turning on the key. The only real solution is to replace the unit. To do so and and up with a tuner and CD changer I'll have to buy them separately. Meaning an in dash turner(radio)and a add-on CD changer. The combination will likely run in the neighborhood of $600 dollars including installation.

Again, I have no doubt I could insist that the dealer again replace the OEM unit. But if the unit itself is not of even a basic min. quality then there's little point to spending the time doing that again.

As I stated on here elsewhere I firmly believe there's good reason Ford lost 12.7 Billion dollars last year. You can't sell someone a product that has problem from the start (I had 22 miles on this truck when I noticed the problems), not do anything to resolve them and expect people to continue to purchase from you.

problem #1

F-150 XLT 5.4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22 miles

I have a new 2006 Super Crew 4X4, 22 miles on it when I bought it. Prior to this truck I had a 1997 Super Cab with a 6 disc changer. The new unit will not play most of the discs I've burned on my computer. It doesn't seem to have an issue with standard, store bought, discs. However at least 70% of the discs (MP3's) I've created at home will not play at all. Most of them start to load then the screen reads "bad disc" and the system ejects them. A smaller % load, then start to play and finally start skipping all over the place. Songs start, then restart and at times skips to another song in the middle of one song. These are the same disc I was playing just fine in my 97 F-150. I also have no problems playing them in my wife's 4Runner, our cheapy home boom box or my 68 VW bug. The player in my VW I bought at Wal-Mart for around $100. Heck these play fine in my Xbox system.

The window sticker on this truck said "Premium Sound System W/MP3 CD player." How "premium" can it be if it won't play a simlpe disc? I've taken it to the dealership and they replaced this unit once, the new unit behaves the same way. I think the only solution to the issue is to purchase an after market unit and replace the crappy one Ford installs.
