problem #4

F-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles


The loss of brake power assist suddenly and without warning. The dealer has indicated the failure "resulted from a brake booster assembly vacuum hose becoming detached from the intake manifold." It was fixed upon the first occasion, but a subsequent failure has occurred.

Complete power brake failure.I turned on my engine, heard a loud popping sound, drove forward a few feet and discovered the power brakes inoperable. No warning lights came on before or after the incident. I took the vehicle to the nearest Ford dealership --olympic Lincoln Mercury seattle-- and they repaired it under warranty. They said a poor connection of a pressure line under the fuel rail caused the problem. They said no recalls had been issued. They had no explanation for why the warning lights did not come on. This incident happened approximately 4 months ago. I don't have the paperwork in hand. If needed I can provide the exact date. The date above is a questioned. Olympic Lincoln Mercury has changed hands, it is now jack carrols Lincoln Mercury. This sudden loss of brakes without warning could have been disastrous. My son was with me.

I currently drive a 2006 Ford F-150 which I leased new in March of 2006. Since day one I have complained about the brakes on the truck. The brake pedal goes below the gas pedal when the brakes are applied. My wife cannot drive the truck because she constantly hit the brake and gas at the same time. I have checked with other owners and they have the same problem. I have also complained to the dealership and they tell me that this is normal with the new Ford trucks. Complaints to Ford direct have resulted in no response. I also have the problem of hitting the brake and gas at the same time unless I pump the brakes first, in a panic situation there is not time to pump the brakes. This problem is an accident waiting to happen.
