Location:
Vernon, CT

2001 ford f-350 7.3 crew cab super duty purchased new . at 48000 miles bought it in for a steering wander problem and front brake pulsation. dealer diagnosed the problem to be bad upper and lower ball joints and bad drag link. i do not tow or plow with this vehicle have had it serviced at dealerships for most of its service life don't think that the truck should have bad ball joint this young in its service life. the wander makes the truck tricky to drive in winter conditions when you have to stay in the tire tracks on snow covered roads . you cant take your eyes off the road for a second the truck starts to wander not that your supposed to take your eyes off the road. as for the brake pulsation had the rotors turned @ 34000 miles because of the same problem it came back at about 38000 miles on a long trip now no towing and no unusual hard braking. the pulsation makes the truck hard to steer during moderate braking events. *jb

with only 43,000 miles, and 21 months old, i had to replace outer tie rod, drag link, and ball joints on our 2001 ford e-150 van. the vehicle has only been used as a private vehicle. maintenance has been per ford schedule, and performed by the same ford dealership which did the state inspection which lead to the part replacements. while ford did contribute about 40% towards the work, it seems suspension and steering parts wearing out so prematurely is a defect which should be concidered for recall. pursuing further with ford only resulted in phone call claiming that the wear rate was not unusual.*ak

i have a 2003 ford f-250. it has severe handling problems. when you pull a trailer with it, the truck drives like the trailer is trying to steer it. if you pass another vehicle, it is almost uncontrollable. the back end starts to sway from side to side, which in turn causes the trailer to whip back and forth. also during panic stop situations, the truck darts left and right and feels like it is out of control. i have talked to numerous ford dealers. one told me to change the tires and/or tire pressure. i tried from 35 psi to 75 psi in 5 psi changes, it didn't fix the problem. i bought another type of tires. they helped a small amount. ford has replaced most of the front steering components. this helped for about 2000 miles. the local ford dealer has stated "your truck has handling problems, but there is nothing wrong with your truck". they will not find the problem or replace the parts i feel will fix it. i think the spring packs and suspension bushings are too soft. i know of another ford that had similar problems and ford bought the truck back from the consumer after admitting it had problems they could not fix. my wife refuses to ride in the truck when pulling a trailer or at highway speeds.*ak
