All The Bells And Whistles! My Reported Concern Is That The Suspension Is Not Strong Enough For The Rated Towing Capacity. I Was Traveling On The Interstate At About 60 Mph. A Car Cut In Front Of Me And I Moved To The Left Lane To Avoid Running Into The Car In Front Of Me. My Trailer’s Empty Weight Was 5000 Lbs And I Estimate That I Had Another 1000-1500 Lbs Inside.

The Transmission Hesitates As It Shifts From 1st Gear To Second Gear. I Was Told It Is Normal By The Dealer Where I Bought The Truck And Other Dealerships As Well. I Have Found Out There Is A Defect In The Transmission Which Causes This Delay In The Shifting Of The Transmission. This Problem Has Been Found In 4r100 Transmissions Built From 7/27/2000 To 3/23/2001. I Believe This Transmission To Be Unsafe And ford Denies There Is A Problem. I Want This Transmission Replaced With A New Transmission. I Have Had This Problem Since The Truck Was New And All ford Does Is Deny, Deny, Deny.

I Own A 2001ford F150 It Has 36,000 Miles On It. I’ve Taken Great Care Of The Truck, But As Of Last Week After Taking It To The Dealer Because Of The Truck Not Starting. I Was Informed The Computer Needed Replaced And Two Coil Packs. And Quote” Does Have A Transmission Concern.” After Waiting 13 Days To Get My Truck I Didn’t Want Them To Do Anymore And I Would Pick The Truck Up. I Didn’t Get Two Blocks And There Was An Obvious Problem With The Transmission. I Took It To A Independent Transmission Repair Shop And Asked Them To Change The Fluid And Filter And If They Saw Any Problems To Give Me A Call. A Few Hours Later They Called And Said They Found Ball Bearings And Debris In The Transmission Pan, Informed Me That It Should Be Rebuilt. I Informed Them To Go Ahead Rebuild And To Save All Parts. They First Test Drove The Truck To See If Any Computer Codes Would Show Up. None Did, But They Did Notice It Dropping Up And Down In Gears. So It Was Obviously A Mechanical Problem To Them. To Make A Long Story Short They Found That A Needle Bearing Had Blown Up In The Planetary Gear Set. And Had Informed Me That It Was A Manufacture Defect. ford Should Own Up To Problem And Pay For Any And All Repairs. The Total Rebuild Cost Was $1943.75 Something That Should Never Happen With A Truck With Only 36,000 Miles On It. *tr

There Aren’t Any Real Events Leading To The Failure. I Took My Truck Into The Local Dealership (gary Crossley ford) To Have The Speed Control Recall Work Done. While There I Asked To Have A State Inspection Done As Well. I Was Told By The Service Advisor That The Lower Ball Joint Were Somewhat Loose And Would Need Replacing – So I Had Them Do That As Well As Flush The Transmission As Well (this Truck Only Had 62,000 Miles On It). Following That It Passed Inspections – All Was Well. Not Even One Month Later (possibly Only 3 Weeks) I Tried Backing From My Parking Spot At Work And Heard A *thunk* From The Rear End. Not Sure What It Was I Backed Up More And Heard It Again. Put The Truck In Drive And There Was A Rubbing Noise From Underneath. I Parked It And Called A Tow Rig To Take It Back To The Dealer. Upon Hearing From Them The Following Day I Was Told The Carrier Bearing In The Rear End Had “exploded” And I’d Need To Replace Most Everything In The Rear End. Agreed To Have The Work Done. Got A Call A Day Later Telling Me That Problem Was Fixed, But There Was Another – The *thunking* Was Still There And Was Likely The Transmission. Had Them Check And Sure Enough, It Needed To Be Replaced As Well. Finding Out That ford Was Going To “cover” Part Of The Transmission Repair Made Me Wonder If There Weren’t Underlying Problems That I Was Not, As An Owner, Alerted To. The Truck Never Had A Problem Before These, And I’ve Been Very Uncomfortable With It Since. *tr
