As it rain or during vehicle washings, notice that water was leaking from the A-frame trim on the driver side of the vehicle. Also found that water was collecting inside of the driverside rear door between the sheet metal. Unsure of how the water manage to get inside and collect between the sheet metal. I removed the door gasket and the water drained from the bottom holes that holds the door gasket anchors at the bottom of the door. Collected close to a half gallon of rain water. As I was driving I could hear the water moving around in the door panel and originally assumed that it was the gas in the gas tank, however, after I opened the rear driverside door, I heard the water moving around inside the door panel. Water collects when driving and when vehicle is stationary.

Driver side door will not latch at times. This has happened 3 times already and I have only had the vehicle 2 months. The first time I had to unlock and lock it multiple times ot get it to open the next I had to shut off the engine and the third time I had to press in the maual lock for it to latch. It did not latch when stationary or when in motion.

The "moon roof" on the truck when I went to open it became "jammed" and would not go back to closed position nor would it open therefore it was (the passenger side) not an air/water tight seal. I had to take it to the dealer for a $2300 repair. The repair, to this day is still not 100% correct. In looking on line mine is not the only truck this has happened to. Something is not right with the mechanics of it as I have open and closed the moon roof, at the maximum of, 12 times since I purchased in 2016, something is just not right with that feature to be used so seldom and when it breaks down the cost being so extreme.

Vehicle lets water into the doors. Water does not drain properly. Seat belts get iced over in cold weather, causing them to not work properly. They do not retract, hold tension.

Tailgate opens spontaneously while driving and while parked. The tailgate has an electronic release mechanism. After checking to ensure the tailgate was secure it has released five separate times. Once in the garage, causing damage to the paint on the tailgate after opening the garage door and once on the front of a car parked behind the truck. Fortunately I didn't have cargo in the back.

While driving our 2015 Ford F-150 lariat supercrew on a trip from Ohio to Florida on interstate I-77 we were towing a 14 foot enclosed trailer. My wife and I stopped for the night after approximately 550 miles and I made sure the truck was secure. In the morning I walked around the trailer and the truck to be sure everything was okay and it was before continuing our drive. We were just North of charlotte, nc and there has been a lot of new road construction as we continued South with rough bumpy areas, changing road lanes and just a lot of twisting sections. After 2 hours and South of charlotte we stopped for fuel. I then saw that the tailgate was down. I was shocked as I looked and was glad we had not lost any items on the road, we could have killed someone. The tailgate received damage because as the twisting and required lane changes happened the trailers front tongue wheel support post was jamming against the dropped tailgate. We feel so fortunate to have not lost the heavy items in the truck that could have made us responsible for a sever accident. I took the truck to the Ford dealer in mount dora, fl and was told the recall currently is for just the F-250 & F-350 models with the power tailgate. They "ran" my VIN number and told me this truck is not in the same recall. Even though the F-150 "lariat" upgrade model has the same power tailgate as the two in the recall. Please help and require the justified recall to be specific to not just the vehicle VIN or model numbers but to all those with this type of functioning power tailgate. I have called Ford's consumer (866) help center and they are not admitting replacement for my damaged tailgate even though the dealer body shop manager had me present to see as they took the tailgate apart. We found inside one broken part for the mechanical latch controller that secures the locking of the tailgate.

Electric rear tailgate falls down randomly while driving at speed or even while parked. Tailgate has fallen 5-6 times while truck is parked in last few months and also 5+ times while car is driving. It has fallen while truck was in reverse, and while truck was traveling on country roads at speeds of ~40mph. Please note - this issue seems identical to the one Ford just announced a recall for on the 2017-2019 F-250 superduty trucks. It must be related. Our truck was in the shop just last week before this recall was announced. This truck should be included in the recall the tailgate most recently fell 11/28/19

All four doors freeze shut and cannot be opened. At one point I was able to yank open the driver door but it would not latch shut. I brought to Ford last winter for recall fix and they supposedly accomplished it.

Door latch freezes - all doors - won't secure until it is warm enough again to work about 34 degrees - sometimes it appears to seem locked only to open as you go around a corner.
