Truck exhibited a constant whining noise and slight vibration from the front end while driving. Also, engagement into 4x4 was rougher then usual and when returning to 2x4 mode, there would be heavy whining and vibration for an extended period of time. Per research on the internet, the vacuum hub actuating system was checked. Determined the actuators themselves on both the left and right side of the vehicle were at fault. Replaced with genuine Ford actuators.

The lower rocker panels of the truck have significant subsurface corrosion. They are literally crumbling apart. I had purchased additional corrosion protection for the vehicle at time of purchase, went to the dealership to have this issue documented and have a claim submitted to the the third-party warranty service to see if repair will be covered under said protection plan. The plastic top portion of the engine oil dipstick seemed to have swelled with age and got stuck in the metal dipstick tube. After much effort, the dipstick was finally freed but the plastic portion was pretty mangled up. Replaced with a new one, grease will be applied to the portion that seals within the metal tube to hopefully prevent this from happening again.

A rubbing sound from the passenger side occurred after having a cv boot replaced on the front driver side. The intermittent sound went back to the shop twice. Originally I thought the sound had come from repair on the cv boot but the shop thought otherwise. They change the bearing but the sound returned. The sound appeared to disappear when you engaged the four wheel drive. In the end it was determined that when the shop did the cv boot they inadvertently broke the seal on the four wheel drive system on the passenger side. No cost to me to fix the seal as it was their error.

Ford F-150 in Texas, United States
Dec 2011 - Feb 2015
Jan 2012 The power steering was leaking and they had to order the part. Called me two months later telling me it was in. Drove in to have it installed and it was the wrong part. It has been 3 more weeks and still waiting on part.

The truck has died on me 3 times causing me to place the truck into park, start the engine, and place the transmission back into drive. Two times it died from taking off and the third time I was turning off of a busy road. There was a bump in the transmission when taking off. It ended up being the slip yolk not properly being lubricated from the manufacturer.
