New 2015 F150 with a vibration/ shudder coming from what feels like the transfer case or possibly the drive shaft. Happens when trying to shift from gear to gear, and on inclines...feels like it is going to stall. Also happens when just cruising at certain speeds. I've had it to the dealer twice and they say everything is fine but they have felt the same problem with this vehicle and ones on their lot. Vibration could lead to more serious problem and actually stall the vehicle while in traffic.

This morning the temp. Was 6 degrees outside, my truck was parked in the garage I opened the door got in and started the vehicle. Once I tried to close the door driver door it wouldn't latch close. I tried to unlock/lock it from inside and outside the vehicle but still would latch closed. Instead of getting it toed to a dealer I had to drive while holding my door closed. Once I got to work (30 mile drive) the door began to latch again... this put me in a safety risk and it is a common occurrence with the new F150's from reading the forum community. Please help get Ford to fix it. The dealer just wanted to spray lube externally on the door mechanism which does nothing.

Under cold temperature (below freezing) my driver door would not latch close. It has happed early in the morning (first drive) and after my drive to work in the parking lot. It has happened two mornings in a row: First morning temperature was 20F and second morning was 33F. The inside handle feels harder to press prior to the door stopping to latch. As soon as the temperature get warmer the door works fine. Ford has issued a technical service bulletin (15-0052) for this issue for trucks built prior to March 2015, but my truck (8/2015 built) and a co-worker's truck built after March are experiencing the same issue. Forum on the internet are buzzing with this issue now that temperatures have dropped below freezing.

Driver's door, not securing when temperature is below freezing can be opened, but the latch in the door fails to secure the door. This occurred three times to me so far, returned to the dealer and they put more lube in the mechanism. When the truck warms up(interior heater for about 15 minutes) the door can be secured. Happened even when we haven't had rain for four days and the truck was not washed. I see the exact same problem posted on F150 forums. Vehicle was stationary when this occurred but was being driven to the dealer with unsecured drivers door.

Accident Nov. 17, 2015 - someone ran a red light and turned in from of us - damage to bumper, grill, seemed rather light, but "rails" were damaged. Parts unavailable for repair. Local dealer has had our truck for 50 days now- more than we've had it. Parts are not available in the supply chain and no one knows when they will be available. I've been told that all parts are going to production, and was even told that there aren't any now for production because the manufacturer of this particular part made them wrong and had to re-make the order. I've been told that there is another vehicle there that has been waiting 3-4 months for parts! I need my truck back and can't wait that long for repairs that should have taken 2 weeks, max. If Ford is willing to sell me a vehicle (over $45,000) then they should have a system in place to get even the less frequently needed parts when they are needed. I want a replacement F-150 since they are unwilling to provide the needed replacement parts. The insurance company is paying for a rental car, but it's a compact, very uncomfortable, and it certainly can't tow the travel trailer that we use at least every other weekend. We have already missed 4 trips and who knows when we'll get our truck back. We are a one-vehicle, very active family, so this has been a horrible inconvenience for us. Ford owes us a new F-150! and they need to shape up their customer care! we've only owned our truck for a little over a month, 2,000 miles.

Air cooled seats do not work. Bottom of seats barely cools on highest setting and lower back part gets hotter and doesn't cool at all. I do hear the fans running. It worked for only a week after I bought it and it has not worked after that for 3 months.

The auto start feature of the 2.7L engine causes the engine to almost stall when leaving a stop sign or light. If the auto start is on and shuts down the engine as you want to go, the engine will almost stall out causing you to be in the intersection without being able to accelerate. This feature can be turned off but it must be done every time the vehicle is started. Stalling in the intersection is a big problem. Ford will not turn off this feature and I feel this is a big safety issue. I would like to see Ford offer the option to turn this feature off permanently.

Front seat back cooling system (ted) is malfunctioning. When seat cooling is selected, after 30 minuets, the back of the front seats reach extreme temperatures, resulting in burning everyone that touches the back of the front seats. I've measure the temperatures, at the top of the map pocket, at over 115 degrees, when ambient temperatures were at 75 degrees. When ambient temperatures rise above 90 degrees, the front seat back temperature can reach up to 150 degrees or more! please reference F150 owners comments and thermal pictures proving this is a serious issue that needs to be addressed asap, at the web address: www.F150forum.com/F118/coolin...operly-304154/
