When your driving around fifty miles per hour and hit a bump it goes into what is described as the death wobble this truck has never seen winter it is in perfect condition only has 28 thousand miles I'm an ex asa mechanic so I'm familiar with mechanics my son in-law had A2011 same problem he lived in Colorado at the time he kept taking it back to a Ford dealer they kept charging him never did fix it 3000 dollars later my daughter made him sell it she was afraid to drive it this is really ridiculous that they don't stand up and do the right thing

Experienced 'death wobble' while driving a highway 287 (same speed no stop and go with traffics). Truck was suddenly violently shaking and wobbling caused my husband almost lost control. He was able to pull over the tuck but scared him to death. We had it towed to a dealership and they confirmed the death wobble provided a quote.

Two different problems: First I was left stranded about 2 1/2 hours away from home because of a simple egt sensor defect shut down my truck. Had to pay a tower $350 to drive my truck to dealership and they tell me it was a little sensor that left me stranded. This type thing shouldn't happen when you pay $60,000 plus for a vehicle. Now months later I have another issue that from all the blogs say is a problem most 2012 models have called the "death wobble". it is now happening at least once on every drive I make. I have had over 8 situations where I have had to slam on breaks to make the vibration stop and the car behind me almost slam into the back of my truck. Because once the wobbling starts you have to come to almost a complete stop before the wobbling will stop. My wife now refuses to drive my truck because she is scared to death to drive it. I don't even like to drive it, but it's necessary because it is the only vehicle I have to drive. I am at the point of wanting to trade it, but what kind of trade in am I going to get with this problem happening. My 2012 just has a little more than 40,000 miles, not very much when you are talking about a diesel engine. It is happening more often now than before, and I fell it will just continue to happen more. No one in my family wants to drive or ride with me in my truck anymore. It seems as though Ford is refusing to admit that this is a problem on every online site I go too, I assume it will take a few people getting killed before they realize there is a problem. What are owners to due with this, because if we trade the truck know one is going to want to buy it. So once again the consumer gets shafted. NHTSA we are looking for you to help us with this problem before someone gets killed. Please help us with this problem! please!!!!!!
