Our lady of the lakes road in St. Martin parish, Louisiana, is a curvy road. The "service advance track and hill descent control, check engine light and break light" came on. The "!" and the "ABS" light came on. Break pedal was hard to depress, while in motion. Fire started under the hood and burnt front seats and engine

Re: the death wobble we have a 2011 Ford F250 Super Duty diesel pick up with less than 20,000 miles. It is like new, but has developed a serious mechanical defect. Ford Motor Company has tried up to (11) eleven fixes for this life threatening problem with no success. None of these "fixes" apply on this pick up. Now since the pick up is older than 3 yrs. Even with such low mileage they want us to pay for "trying" out more possible fixes that have currently been unsuccessful for all these Ford 250 & 350 pick ups. This should be at the Ford Motor Company's expense. The bottom line, it should be bought back by Ford since it is not yet proven to be fixable. Problem: The "death wobble" as described on the internet. (see website below). This occurs anytime these Ford Super Duty 250 or 350 pickups reach 20K miles. This occurs when driving over 40 miles per hour if at anytime a bump, rough road, or pothole in the road is hit. The operator looses control of the vehicle. This vehicle is worse than the internet video as confirmed by the bend Oregon Ford dealership. Applying the brakes makes it worse. It has to be allowed to slow down on its own. The vibration is so violent it takes all ones strength to keep it on the road. It's one of the more frightening experiences you¿ll encounter behind the wheel. The vehicle is shaking so badly you think it¿ll fall apart and that you¿re going to die. That's why it's called death wobble.
