Below Is A Complaint Letter That Was Sent To ford Today. I Previously Filed A Complaint With The Nhtsa. So Far They Are Holding My Truck Hostage And Not Fixing The Problem. Please Do Something. It Seems That There Are Many Truck Of This Type And Model That Have The Same Problem. Please See fordforum.org Under The Heading Of Violent Front End Shaking. My 2011 F-250 Has Been At Gus Muchado ford In Palmetto Bay Florida For The Past 4 Days For A Wobble In The Front End When You Hit A Bump. The Dealer Tells Me That They Are Working With Engineers At ford. The Problem Is That The Mechanic Can Only Email The Engineer, He Then Has To Wait For The Engineer To Read The Email And Respond. Then The Engineer Has To Wait For The Mechanic And So On. In The 4 Days They Have Had My Truck Only 2 Things Have Been Looked At. When I Was There This Afternoon My Truck Was Parked Out In The Back Parking Lot And Not Being Worked On. When I Asked Why It Was Not Being Worked On They Responded That They Were Waiting For The Engineer To Tell Them What To Do Next. I Desperately Need For Someone At ford To Step Up And Take Control Of This Situation. If This Means Sending An Engineer To The Dealership, So Be It. At This Rate I Might Never See My Truck Again. Because Of This Slow Response From The Dealer And From ford To Remedy The Problem, I Had No Choice But To Rent A Truck This Afternoon. I Am Paying $60.00 A Day For A Truck That Is Not Even Comparable To My F-250. When I Asked The Dealer To Pick Up The Rental For Me Do To This Obvious ford Issue, The Service Manager Authorized A Voucher For A Whopping $18.00. This Won’t Even Pay For The Gas Needed To Drive The Rental For The Weekend. *tr

This Vehicle Has Severe Front End Wobble Which Mostly Occurs Between The Speeds Of 55 – 70 Mph. The Steering Wheel And Entire Vehicle Begins To Violently Wobble So Much That Usually The Vehicle Has To Be Stopped On The Side Of The Road To Stop The Wobble. The Cover On The Dash Over The Passenger Airbag Has Cracked Due To The Violent Shaking In The Truck. Also, Fluid Has Begun To Leak From The Front Passenger Wheel As A Result Of The Shaking As Well. Both ford And The Dealership Has Been Unable To Offer Any Remedy. Please Help With This Situation. I Have Videos If Needed. I Am Afraid This Is Going To Cause An Accident. *tr

I Was Driving On A Entrance Ramp To An Interstate At About 55-60mph… I Recall Hitting Some Type Of Road Bumps – Pavement Joint That Started The Event… Typically I’m Used To Experiencing The Back Of My Truck Bounce In The Past Causing Lane Correction But This Time The Whole Front End Started Shaking Severely… I Was In The Left Lane Of 3 So Decided To Break And Get Into The Center Median Asap Based On Approaching Vehicles From Behind… I Pulled Off And Checked The Left Side And The Right… All Was Fine… I Shook The Wheels… All Tight… The Shaking Of The Vehicle Was So Severe I Had A Hard Time Controlling It And Getting It Safely Off The Roadway… Papers In My Visors Shook Loose… 2 Gym Bags In Passenger Seat Ended Up On Floor…. A Large Screen Tv That Was Taped Against The Back Window On The Back Seat Was Thus Shifted Laying Now On Top Of The Front Seats…. I Later Realized That The Sandwich I Just Bought Was Gone From The Console And Later Found On The Floor At The Passengers Door!!!! Being Committed To The Freeway I Slowly Started Out, And No Other Issues… After About 20 Minutes On The Freeway I Kicked It Up To Freeway Speeds, But Got The Pucker Factor Each Time I Hit Road Bumps On My Trip.. I Work For The City Of Rochester Hills And Called Our Fleet Mgr, And Told Him Of My Issue, He Had No Idea But Checked And Found Tsb 11-6-14 That Was Verbatim What Happened To Me.. The Dealer Ordered Up Parts And Will Advise When To Bring It In But ford Corp I Felt Should Have Notified Of A Possible Roll Over Issue, As Im Sure If I Was At 70-80 On The Freeway Or My Kids Driving With Less Experience There Would Have Been A Rollover… ford Said Until It Happens Again Or The Dealer Can Not Fix It There Was Nothing More They Could Do!!!!! I Advised It Looks Like The Next Call They Want Is From Legal Council Adding The 0000 After A Fatality!!! *tr

I Was Driving On Highway 55 North In Imperial Missouri With My 3 Yr Old Son In Rear Car Seat When I Went Over Some Normal Road Bump And My Front End Started Shaking So Violently That I Had To Come To A Complete Stop To Correct The Shake. This All Happened In The Fast Lane As I Had No Way To Move To Left Or Right. Thank God I Was Not Being Tailgated! I Was Scared Half To Death And My 3yr Old Was Crying So Hard That He Couldn’t Breathe! I Took It Straight To Dealership And They Did A Tsb For A Steering Dampener And Told Me It Was Fixed. The Very Next Morning It Did The Violent Shake Again. Took It Straight Back To Dealership And They Had A ford Engineer Look At It And They Replaced A Track Bar Ball Joint And Said It Was Good Now. I Told Them That I Wanted To Test Drive It Before I Took It This Time And They Let Me. Still Had The Problem And When I Told Him That He Said That The Engineer Said I Needed To Put New Tires On And A Alignment Before They Do Anything Else. There Is Something More Than Tires And Alignment Wrong With My Truck!!!!! My Family Truck Has Become A Death Trap!!!! Please Help With This Matter Before Someone Is Killed! If This Was Your Child In This Truck You Would Understand My Concern!!! *tr

My 2011ford F250 Diesel 4×4 Crew Cab 6.5′ Bed Has Experienced Unexplainable Suspension Vibrations And Wobbles Over The Course Of Its, Now, 13.5k Mile Life. The Truck, No Matter How Many Times The Wheels And Tires Were Balance, Bounces At 45-70 Mph And Bounces At A Very Dangerous Level At Higher Speeds When Hitting A Bump Or Uneven Pavement. The Problem Is Also Worsened At The Onset Of The Speed Heading Into A Corner Where The Wheel Is Turned. It Feels Like The Wheels Go Out Of Sync Or Out Of Shape And Bounce Forcing Me To Decelerate And On A Few Occasions, Stop Altogether. *tr

2011ford F-250 Diesel. The First Occurrence Was Driving Approximately 50 Mph On A 2 Lane Rd. After Hitting A Small Bump In The Road The Vehicle Front End/steering Began To Shake Violently From Side To Side. I Took The Vehicle To A Local Tire Dealer For Tire Rebalancing And Rotation (3rd For This Vehicle) He Stated The Tires Appeared To Be Wearing “funny”. A Couple Weeks Later On A Long Trip Out Of State The Vehicle Began To Shake Again, Worse Than Before. While Out Of Town I Had Alignment Checked With No Issue Found And Purchased New Tires. Vehicle Seemed Repaired On Return Trip And Has Since Begun The Vibration Again. I Went To The Dealer Today Who Sent Me To A Local Front End Specialist. This Gentleman Knew The Exact Issue And Claims To Have Repaired Hundreds Of Them. He Stated That ford Motor Company Was Aware Of This Issue. His Opinion Was That I Need To Purchase A “track Bar Kit” Which He Would Install And Then Ensure The Vehicle Was Realigned. After Arriving Home Today I Started Looking On The Internet For Any Information I Could Find And Found Many Articles And Videos About What Is Called The “death Wobble”. I Have A Son Who Turned 16 On Sunday And I Value His Life More Than To Let Him Drive Our New 2011 Vehicle Which Is Absolutely Ridiculous And The Reason I Am Filing My Complaint Today. *tr

While Driving About 60 Mph, Sometimes Less, Changing Pavement From Semi Smooth To Kind Of Rough, My F250sd Begins Shaking Violently. So Severe I Almost Lose Control. I Have Been Lucky Enough To Not Have Or Cause An Accident. This Shaking Last Until I Let Off Of The Accelerator While Trying To Keep My Vehicle Between The Lines And Having Traffic Stay Far Behind When It Finally Regains Control. This Not Only Happens At 60 – 70 Mph But Even Sometimes At 30 Mph If You Are Driving On Rough Pavement. When You Are Driving On The Interstate And This Violent Shaking Starts, It Can Be Extremely Dangerous For You And All Other Drivers Near. I Have Changed Shocks, Balanced Front End, Tightened Suspension And Anything Else To Do With A Front End And I Still Have Not Solved The Problem. *tr

Feb 06, 2012

As I Was Driving On A Road At A Speed That Was Greater Than 50 Mph I Hit A Bump In The Road. The Front End Of The Truck And The Steering Wheel Began To Shake So Violently That I Thought They Were Going To Fall Off. This Had Happened Beginning Around Late November Early December Of 2012. It Did It Several More Times And I Contacted The Dealer About This Problem. The Truck Was Serviced And Nothing In The Front End Was Found To Be Damaged And It Was Recommended That I Replace The Tires On The Truck. The Tires Were Replaced And The Truck Has Been Fine For The Past Year. On 10/30/13 I Again Was Driving The Truck At A Speed Greater Than 50 Mph And Hit A Bump In The Road And The Front End Again Began To Shake Violently. I Have Been Pin This Shaking Down To The Following Conditions. It Will Shake If You Are Driving At Highway Speeds, You Hit A Bump In The Road (this Bump Does Not Have To Be Big It Could Be As Simple As Driving From The Roadway Onto A Bridge Deck) The Front End Will Begin To Shake And Very Quickly Get Violent. The Only Way To Stop It From Shaking Is To Slow The Vehicle Down To A Speed That Is Less Than Highway Speed Which Will Cause The Vibration To Stop And You Can Then Return To Highway Speeds. This Has Happened Several Times And I Do Not Have The Exact Dates That It Occurred Prior To Changing The Tires. However It Is Beginning Again And The First Time Was On The 30th Of October 2013. *tr

This Started In March 2014. Terrible Steering Wobble (death Wobble) At Highway Speed. Last Night It Was Horrible As I Was Passing A Car On I-29 On A Bridge And We Got The Wobble After Going Over A Bridge Joint. I Had To Stab The Brakes To Slow Down As The Truck Steering Was Out Of My Control. Several Vehicles Behind Me Also Had To Navigate Around Me As I Tried To Turn The Vehicle To The Shoulder. This Truck Is Dangerous At Highway Speed! This Has Happened Several Times While Going Down The Interstate. I’m Scared To Drive The Truck Anywhere But Around City Streets. To My Knowledge This Is A Very Common Problem With All Super Duty Trucks With A Straight Front Axle And Coil Springs. I Want ford To Admit There Is A Problem And Fix These Issues. It’s A Fixable Issue That They Won’t Address. For $50,000 I Don’t Think I Should Have To Pay For Their Engineering Geometry Blunder.

Death Rumble: After Any New Set Of Tires Gets About 15,000 -20,000 Miles On Them, The Infamous “death Rumble” Occurs On This Model Truck. When Traveling At Speeds Of 60 Or More And You Turn Or Hit A Bump, The Front End Of The Vehicle Starts Shaking And Vibrating Violently. You Have To Come To An Almost Immediate Stop In Order To Get The Vehicle To Stop The Shaking. It Is So Bad That You Cannot Control Steering At Times And Is Even Visible To Others Not In The Vehicle. All ford Dealers That I Have Spoken With About This Are Aware Of The Issue But Blame It On Tires Or Tire Pressure. I Have Tried Several Types Of Tires (as I Know Have Over 125,000 Miles On My Truck) And Always Inflate Them As Per My Owner’s Manual…this Does Not Help…nor Does Rotating, Balancing, Checking Brakes, Ball Joints, Suspension, Etc. You Can Watch Many Many Videos Of This Problem Of Youtube And Other Locations, See Write-ups In Magazines, And As I Said, Dealers Even Know About This Issue…so Why Is It Not Getting Corrected???
