The original Michelin tires on my 2010 F-150, had to be replaced due to cracking around the rim on the inside of the tire. Tires had 31346 miles at replacement on 5 Oct 2015. I also had to replace the original rear shocks at 31360 miles due to one leaking and one that was not working at all.

Constant squeaking noise coming from the rear suspension. Dealer has tried several solutions and cannot repair problem. Dealer thinks that the suspension springs are defective from Ford because the age of the vehicle is way too new to have this problem to occur. Ford does not have a recall on this item at this time.

At apx 10,00 miles on my 2010 F150 I started getting a clunk/bump in the driveline when stopping and starting. Sometimes it was worse when turning. I am a 20 year veteran mechanic with prior Ford dealer experience. I have not been able to get this issue resolved by the local servicing Ford dealer vanbortel Ford. It has been in many many times for the same complaint. In the life of this vehicle it has had an engine replaced at 20,00 the torque converter at 25,000 the driveshaft at apx 35,000 the rear springs at 37,000 and the issue still persists. It is in now on 12/26/2012 for a trans leak, poor engine/trans performance and reduced economy from reflashing the trans several times as well as the same clunk/bump when starting and stopping. My concern is that the unknown defect causing clunk/bump could cause a safety issue by locking up or failing at speed.

Around 25000 miles the truck has developed a significant shake while being driven at 65 or above mph. It has become unsafe to drive on freeways. Ford motors refuses to address the situation or make repairs although the vehicle is still in full warranty.

I bought this car in March 2010. As soon I bought this I heard a sound when I make a turn. It's a sound when two metal make friction. I took the car for services in alberic colon Ford in December 2010. First they said that everything was good. After that ask for a supervisor that make a test drive with me he heard the sound and they keep a car for two weeks. After that as soon I took the car out I heard the sound. I didn't take the car back the car for services because I need a car to go to work. In August 2011 I took the car again to the service. Again they said that everything was good. I request another test drive with a supervisor and the mechanic they heard the sound and keep the car from September 6 2011 to October 6 2011. When the car was in the services sometime they call me and said that's they are making some test drive to know where it come from the sound. After a month they call me and said that Ford said that is something characteristic in this model. You donżżT have to be an engineer to know that when to metal make friction one of them going to fail. I hope when this happen I donżżT be driving at 65 mph, because I could get kill or kill somebody else. I hope you investigate this complaint and find what's wrong before anybody get kill. This is not normal I been driving for 28 years and I'm a 24 years experience state police here in puerto rico and I know when something go wrong the damage can made. Thanks in advance for this matter.

My truck wonders all over the road and shakes to the point that the passenger is sick. Hard to steer out of ruts and crosswinds blow the truck in to the next lane and you can't control it. Can't take your eyes off the road in front of you to even look at the exit signs because the truck is unsafe and unpredictable to the point that your hands are going to turn numb from lack of blood in your fingers due to the white knuckles from hanging on to the steering wheel so tight. Very unsafe. I have taken it in to the dealer 4 times now and they have replace both front springs and struts and have replaced the rack and pinion 2 times now. I was told that the factory tires are not that great and have soft side walls and that could be the reason as to why it's not fixed and the Ford shocks are under rated for the vehicle. So I have put new bilstien 5100 shocks on all the way around and have put better tires and wheels on it. Truck still does the same thing. This truck is unsafe and have read other complaints on here. Here are the other complaint #'s. 10392353, 10407502, 10336730. I just can't believe Ford has not acknowledged any of the complaints on this site. Someone is going to die or burn to death and I hope it's not me or my family. The only recall I can find on this truck is the door handle and was told it doesn't pertain to my truck. I would like to file for a class action lawsuit if anyone is interested because I know I am not the only one out there who is afraid to drive their $46,000 truck that's not even 2 years old yet. This truck was suppose to be built Ford tough. I will be trading this P.O.S in as soon as I can cough up all of the negative equity that I have acquired due to the high price of this lemon. I have said my peace and now it's on file just in case I crash and burn, at least I know my family will be taken care of now (I hope).

My vehicle rides nearly identical to ODI case 10392353. While driving out of town I had to slow for a rough spot on the road where the pavement had sloughed away on a gentle angle. After going through the area I tried speeding up from about 50kph (35mph). The truck's steering wheel began to swing back and forth and the truck was vibrating/shaking badly. My 2010 Ford xtr 4X4 has approx. 36000 kms (22000 miles) on it. At speeds between 85-95kph (55-60mph) the truck also begins to shake/vibrate. In addition, whenever it hits any rough pavement or potholes-even the slightest- it wobbles like jelly. It has 18" Goodyear Wrangler tires. I have taken it twice to the dealer within the past 3 weeks. After the first visit, I had the tires re-balanced just to eliminate tire balance issues. Both times they road tested it and said it just stiff suspension. They asked me to road test a similar vehicle with like mileage and tires. It did the same but not as violently. They said the problem around the 85-95kph is related to torque-converter wanting to lock up. My job requires a lot of driving but the 'bowl-of-jelly' ride, as I would describe it, makes for nevous driving as the thought of hitting a soft, rough, or any kind of road blemish while meeting traffic and maybe being thrown into the path or crossing center line is always there.
