With the launch of the redesigned F-150, Ford broke all of the rules for pickup trucks. From its much-touted aluminum construction -- shaving about 700 pounds from the old model -- to available small-displacement twin-turbo V6 engines promising the power of V8s but with better fuel economy, Ford has shaken things up in a category not known for innovation.

"The 4WD front auto-locking hubs (to engage 4WD) have been the only sore spot in 50 thousand miles. The problem has occurred on numerous occasions for the past couple of years. Have been to dealer for warranty repair/recall on this problem at least 3 times, and it has not been resolved. The hubs are vacuum actuated, and periodically will not engage or fully engage or disengage, causing a disconcerting moaning noise that persists after using 4WD and shifting to 2WD. After vehicle is stopped, turned off and restarted the trouble has abated, including the last trip to the dealer, so no diagnosis was provided but to replace expensive parts not covered by now expired warranty. I'm skeptical of dealer repairs anyway, so I have given up and resigned myself to live with it 'till the wheels fall off. Other than that, one rear shock absorber went bad, so replaced all 4, new brakes and rotors due to salt/rust and tires and oil changes are all I have done. Mostly satisfied with what was a completely new vehicle in 2015, and one of the first off the assembly line, too."

When I started the engine, the parking brake wouldn't release and the truck wouldn't move. A message appeared on the instrument panel advising me to take the vehicle immediately to a repair facility. I was considering calling a tow truck, but decided to see if the system would reset if turned the key on and off five times. That cleared the alarm. I got going and decided to drive directly to the local Ford dealer, thinking the repair would be covered under warranty. I pulled into the dealer's service lane and stopped the engine. I very hostile young service advisor said he didn't have anyone to help me and I would have to make an appointment for the following week. I said ok, could I leave the truck and get a loaner. He asked if I had purchased the vehicle there. I said no and he answered no. The warning light message stayed on over the weekend and when I brought the truck in for the appointment I got there early since it is first come first serve at this particular dealership. There electrician looked over the truck for an hour and reported back that he couldn't find anything wrong. I asked if he saw the message advising me to take the vehicle in for repair and he said no. I asked the service advisor if he noticed the warning message and he said he did not recall seeing it. The then charged me $100 and sent me on my way. The problem hasn't reoccured. If I do get another problem, I won't take it to that dealership. I do love the truck and I think I'll try to keep it unless I start getting more $100 no problem invoices."

"Warped"

Anonymous, CO (2015 Ford F-150 XLT 2.7-L V6 turbo)

"took my truck to dealer from where I bought it to have brakes inspected and was told that the rust ( light) on my rotors was NOT covered under warranty Ithen wentto another dealer who replaced all pads ,turned front rotors and replaced rear rotors! needless to say,ihave not been back to original dealer and never will!"

Anonymous, OH (2015 Ford F-150 XLT 5.0-L V8)

"Rotors were defective from the factory. It wasn't until the truck was out of warranty when the dealer said they needed to be replaced. Even though it was a factory defect, the replacement cost was not covered."

Rough shifting

"Rough shifting developed after the transmission slipping problem was repaired. Several tries to improve the situation did not improve the rough shifting."

"Shifting issue resolved with a computer update"

Anonymous, IL (2015 Ford F-150 Lariat 2.7-L V6 turbo)

"5-4 downshift is harsh. Had the transmission re-programmed twice by the dealer under warranty (two separate TSBs), but the problem persists. The transmission computer "learns" my driving habits, starts out fine (when new and after re-programming), but eventually "learns" to shift very harshly when shifting down from 5th to 4th. Sometimes so harsh I'm afraid the stress will break something in the transmission or driveline. Very unsafe when on slick roads, and when towing"

Ron F., GA (2015 Ford F-150 Lariat 5.0-L V8)

"The truck's diagnostics gave me an error code on my display. Looking it up, it indicated that I needed to take my truck to the dealership. It required the replacement of an "auxs transmission pump", covered by warranty. The shifting issue went away after the replacement"

Jim M., TX (2015 Ford F-150 XLT 3.5-L V6)

Transmission computer

"Rough shifting, and refusing to downshift. This is a terrible transmission but mostly because of the software. Fords general lack of service has made it much worse."

Transmission sensor or solenoid

"improper shifting delayed shifting"

Lex D., AR (2015 Ford F-150)

"Was actually an auxiliary pump related to the stop/ start system. Failure just meant the stop/ start system was defeated. Apparently not uncommon. Unlike early failures they had the parts and was covered under warranty"

Loren H., MB (2015 Ford F-150 Lariat 2.7-L V6 turbo)
