F-150 XLT 2.7

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,000 miles


Took to dealer twice before they admitted it's a know problem and no current fix. First time I was told that's the way they all are, so I elevated it to Ford customer service to open a case. Still no fix, but at least they acknowledge the issue.

Update from Nov 15, 2021: No solution Ford said was not a big deal

F-150 XLT 5.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,000 miles

The dash bubbles up by the front defrost vents. Took it in to the dealer and they didn't fix it and they said they couldn't do anything about it. Very frustrating. Ford ignores their customers.

I have the same issue as all other above. Seems like a problem with any of the XLT or below. Ford delaer has acknowledged it, but not much to do about it unless I request a new dash which will do the same according to them.

Ford needs to make a better reinforced dash for us, or upgrade it to the Lariat dash which doesn't have the issue.

dash warping dash warping

I noticed this issue around a month ago. It was one of the first cold days of September, so I decided to turn on the heater for the first time since buying it at the end of August.

After I arrived at work, I noticed that the dash looked a bit inflated or something. I pushed on it and it seems to have warped upwards.

I'll post pictures this weekend, as it appears to have gotten worse.

F-150 XLT 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles

I live in Baltimore Maryland. I purchased a new 2015 F150 XLT from Al Packer Ford Whitemarsh in July and have only driven for a little over a month. Basically it has been in and out of the shop since August 24, 2015 at one point it was in the shop 24 days straight for a defective dashboard. Right where the front defrost vents are due the heat of defrosting and the sun the dash warps and buckles. I had a one inch gap where my two vents came apart at the seams.

I took it to the dealer they contact Ford and Ford says put a new one in. 24 days, a broken inner drivers door panel, broken ac wire harness, broken airbag later, I pickup my truck to a now extremely deformed dash and truck now more broken then before. I walked the dealers lot and all the F150s are doing the same thing as mine.

The problem is the dealerships/Ford are aware but they don't tell the customers that, oh by the way the dash in this $50000 truck is coming apart and we don't have a fix. They let them buy it hope they don't see it like I did and when they do they say ok cool your truck is going to be the test subject and we are going to keep fixing until we get something that works and then issue a recall. Oh but by the way we only pay for a rental up to $1500 after that you still have to pay your monthly payment and now for a rental!

Yeah, I bought a $50000 project for Ford and I'm financing every dollar each month. Long story short I have been a loyal Ford supporter for the past 10 years. Not anymore! John Mchale is the regional Ford rep trying to cover his you know what and dodging all my questions and phone calls because there is no fix and it has cost Ford over $5000 to make repairs to my truck which did not work. Let's see $5000 x 200,000 F150s sold or for sale that's a ton of money for Ford!

I really just want other consumers to know what they are buying before being stuck with a truck falling apart like I am.

dash warping dash warping dash warping dash warping dash warping

I only had this vehicle for less than two weeks and I noticed this morning that my dash was warped. This should not happen to a brand new vehicle. I decided to look up this issue in the ford f150 forum and many owners have the same complaint on their 2015 f150. This is ridiculous especially for a new vehicle. I'm very disappointed with this. I'm calling the dealership first thing in the morning. If no satisfaction from them I'm contacting ford corporate.

Pictures coming soon.

Overall I love the vehicle, but I started noticing some warping on both passenger and driver side of the dashboard. The issue is occurring in the area where the dash meets the defroster's vent. Due to how new of a model it is, I highly doubt if there's a fix out there yet. This is the first vehicle in which I've ever had this type of issue. Yes, in North Texas, our summertime temps easily exceed 100 degrees but you'd think the manufacturers make these trucks durable enough to handle the heat. After all, Texas is one of if not the biggest market for pickup trucks.
