problem #9

F-150 Lariat 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,600 miles

2006 Ford F150! 54600 easy in town miles, no towing, no racing, no nothing except driving to and from work and what do I get for it..a BLOWN TRANSMISSION! Seriously, 54600 miles and I have to put a rebuilt tranny in this thing? F Ford, I'll never buy another one of their POS products!

I have a 91 MR2 turbo driving a helluva lot harder with 180000 miles and all I've ever had to replace on that was a clutch! I've owned other Asian autos that all had 3-4 times the miles of this crappy truck with no major issues! Not to mention, this truck has had other annoying issues, shifter top broke off, turn signal stopped working, paint on roof cracking and looks bad, cracks in the 3rd brake light from what I don't know!

NEVER EVER AGAIN will I give this company any of my money! As soon as I get this back from the repair I'm going shopping for a foreign car!

problem #6

F-150 Lariat 5.4L Triton

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,345 miles


Back in 2006 I was looking for my first pickup truck and after much vetting between Chevy, Toyota, and Ford decided on the Ford. The history and heritage were part of the decision, especially when it came to durability. I had several friends and associates that had very good things to say and had zero issues. Fast forward to 6 years and 90K miles of mostly highway, no towing and following scheduled maintenance by the book, my transmission fails. While trying to back up out of the blue the vehicle would not move. My first thought was that maybe the control module had failed. Boy was I shocked to hear the transmission needed to be replaced.

2006 F150 Transmission

The next day I wrote Ford and explained the situation hoping to hear that they cared about a first time customer that is also in the market for a replacement for a 2002 vehicle I have. Well let me tell you they really DO NOT CARE. Their response was 'I regret to hear that you no longer consider Ford a good product and will not look at us for your next purchase. I hope to regain your confidence in our products and services in the near future.' REALLY, did he even listen.

I do want to say that the dealer did go out of their way to see what they could do to help me out. There is a program through the oil supplier that if you follow the maintenance schedule and use their oil, they may compansate the repair up to $1,000. Unfortunately this dealer only sells Ford, so by Ford's actions they as well have lost my business.

F-150 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

My son's 2006 F-150, with 55,000 miles on it, blew the tranny. It wouldn't shift above second gear. Had to have a rebuilt one, cost $2,900. Mechanic also had an Explorer in that had the same symptoms with 59,000 miles. My daughters Taurus blew it's tranny at 95,000. Other son's 2004 F-150 has 160,000 miles on it and no problems, yet. I don't want to give business to 'Government Motors' and refuse to buy foreign. What to do???

problem #3

F-150 XLT 5.4L Triton

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

I have a 2006 Ford F150 XLT 5.4 Triton at around 100,000 Km (60K miles) I'm driving and the car appears to go into neutral. I stop and pull over and check the transmission fluid, it's OK. I pull away and at about 60Km/h (40mph) it does it again, RPM goes way up, no drive. It works fine with OD turned off. It was under extended warranty so the $3,000 repair was covered. Now a couple of weeks later it does the same thing but intermittently, I bring it back in but it works fine most of the time so they can't see it and no codes show up. So I guess I have to keep driving it until it fails permanently again, it's nerve racking not knowing when it's going to into neutral again, what happens if I'm passing and it happens, it could cause a fatal accident. The Ford dealer isn't going to take the transmission apart again unless they see it fail. Any ideas, besides trade the damn thing in.

problem #2

F-150 XLT 5.4L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,800 miles

I purchased a Brand new truck so I could know exactly how it was taken care of as it got older. I have never pulled anything heavy or over loaded the transmission. Did the regular maintenance that is required and some extra stuff to make sure the truck would last a good long time. Two days ago I noticed a slight hesitation when I started the truck in the morning and left for work. Yesterday it wouldn't shift into 3 gear instead just missing and revving out. I got a phone call from the Transmission shop today telling me I need a total rebuild. Not even 60,000 miles on it and I have to put in a completely new Tranny. I will never EVER buy another ford product.
