Ford Defects for 2017-2023 F-150 and F-250


here are many defects found on Ford-F150 and Ford-250 truck vehicles. These defects can affect the safe drivability of the vehicle, and can include:

  1. Ford Shake / Ford Death Wobble: Caused by the premature wear or failure of the track bar joint, control arms, shocks, and/or steering dampener. 
  2. Transmission Defect: Resulting from the faulty transmission components can cause erratic harsh shifting, jerking, hesitation and lunging. 
  3. Engine Defect: Faulty engine components can cause rough idle, shaking, misfiring, engine shut off, hesitation upon acceleration, and leaking head gaskets. 
  4. Powertrain Defect: Faulty driveshaft can cause loss of power and rolling when in park. 
  5. Driveshaft Defect: underbody heat and noise insulators are prone to loosening, leading to contact with the aluminum driveshaft that can cause fracturing. Fractured driveshafts can cut drive power or cause the vehicle to lose control, which can happen should the driveshaft come into contact with the ground. The vehicles may also start moving out of gear on their own, even while parked when the parking brake is not engaged. 
  6. Excessive Oil Consumption Defect: Defective pistons allow engine oil to enter the combustion chamber causing misfires, stalling, and premature failure of the engine. The “change engine oil light” could illuminate after only 3,000 miles of an oil change. 

Common Defects Experienced on the Ford Bronco (2021-2023)

  1. Engine Defect: Faulty valvetrain and turbocharger can cause the engine to fail and render the turbocharger inoperable. 
  2. Powertrain Defect: Metal shavings or pieces in the engine can cause powertrain malfunction and reduced power. 
  3. Brake Lining Defect: Poorly-manufactured brake linings, rendering the brakes more difficult to engage and preventing the driver from stopping. 

Common Defects Found on the Ford Mustang (2015-2023)

  • Electrical Defects: Any electrical components that are defective from the auto manufacturer can cause faults, flaws and malfunctions inside of the vehicle.
  • Rearview Camera Defect: Faulty wiring in the rearview camera. Loose or damaged wiring can cause the image to be blank or distorted, limiting the driver’s view and increasing the risk of an accident. 
  • Brake Defect: The brake pedal bumper was discovered to be prone to corrosion and separation from the brake pedal when exposed to certain environmental conditions such as high humidity and salty air. The brake pedal bumper malfunction may cause the brake lights to illuminate constantly and can allow the driver to shift out of park without engaging the brake, both of which increase the risk of a crash.
