I purchased this truck brand new in November 2010 with 5 miles on it. In March my transmission started shifting repeatedly when no need for it to shift was even present. It would drop from 6th to 4th on the highway with no touch of the gas pedal. Also when taking off from a stand still if you slowly accelerate then get on the gas fully their is a huge delay in engine response as I was trying to pull out into traffic and floored the truck and almost was hit because the truck was unresponsive to my need for full throttle. I repeat the delay only occurs from a very slow accelerate then to a sudden full throttle from a stop. The truck is responsive from dead stop to full throttle. Another is extremely hard shift from 1st to 2nd and when driving at slow speeds bad drop into 1st from 2nd. Also have slight shaking on take off. Took vehicle in they replaced some part on my vehicle and I have it back with the same problems, they even wrote on my receipt that they still felt problems after the fix! now they are claiming there is nothing wrong with the truck when I take it back in. Truck has only 5,000 miles on it truly disappointed in the quality and safety of this vehicle.

On 02/25/10 my P/U had 2214 miles, I complained of clunky shifting gear hunting and 2 second hesitation when push accelerator down for passing. Ford, diagnosis every thing normal. I am living with this nightmare. I have been professional driver since 1976. 02/26/11 back into Ford with clunky tran. And 2 second hesitation when passing at 50 mph. Found no problem. 02/02/11 back into Ford same symptoms told them I want to ride with tech. Did not allow ride with tech service writer and service mgr. Said they experienced my problem. Told me come back when trans. Tech available. Then wrote my invoice to read unable to duplicate? Ford I believe has issued talking points to all locations to cover up the fact that there is problem! this is serious because many times in an emergency situation you accelerate instead of brake. So when you go to accelerate and have a 2 second delay in pedal push down to when the computer reads what to do and gives you passing gear you could be run over! please help my vehicle listed for 46,000 plus paid 40,000 for it. Consumers in America should not get fleeced like this without consequences. Thank you, how ironic I've always been a Chevy guy until this nightmare!

  • 13,200 miles
After passing a vehicle my truck did not slow down but sped up. My foot was off the pedal and I picked up speed from 45 to 70. RPM's were very high and the brakes would not stop it. I pushed the accelerators pedal several times verifying it was not stuck. I then shifted into neutral and came to a stop. RPM's went from 5K plus to 4K in neutral sitting still. The RPM's continued at 4K until I shut off the engine.

2010 Ford F150 was parked in a parking lot of movie theatre, based on the information from police and witness the unoccupied vehicle began to roll forward striking another parked vehicle. Dealership states that there is no way vehicle should have moved since the keys can only be removed when the vehicle is placed in park and the keys were in the owners pocket in the movie theater.
