#1395 of 2180 2005 F-150 Front End Vibration
Aug 09, 2005 (6:37 am)
I've experienced a really bad front end vibration approximately 5 times over the last 3 months. The truck only has 19,000 miles on it. This vibration is so severe it feels as though the front tires are jack-hammering off the road. 4 out of the 5 times I pulled over, came to a complete stop and when I started to drive again, it was gone. This last time, I pulled over several times because the truck became almost undriveable but it didn't disappear so easily. It finally stopped after the 4th stop on the side of the road. I dropped the truck off this morning at the dealer in an effort to find what's wrong while still under warranty. He said "You're driving it like a car." What is that supposed to mean?!? This is no little vibration with an irritating noise; this feels as though the front tires are literally bouncing off the road. Something's definately wrong. Then he asked ME "What if I can't replicate it?" He's the mechanic isn't he? I hope they took a good look at what could be causing it, but I have a feeling I'm getting the "oh well" attitude. Anyone else experiencing this severe vibration?
#1396 of 2180 2005 f150 vibration
Aug 09, 2005 (10:23 am)
I bought a 2004 f150 lariat and had alot of problems with vibration. after taking the truck back to the dealer 4 times I decided to get rid of it so I talked to the salesman that sold it to me and he swore to me the 2005 model had the problem corrected supposedly the frame was to stiff. I purchased a 2005 lariat with every option 44,000 dollars. well this one has the problem but worse I only have a couple thousand miles on it but the salesman was fired before I could make a complaint to the dealership. the dealership will not accept any fault and they tested the truck and said the vibration was normal. I dont know but vibrating so bad that it will shake your sodas in the center console doesnt seem normal. maybee we should do a class action law suit???????

I hate to rain on your parade but I don't think you can replace just the little door. You have to buy the overhead console assembly. ($$$)

#1400 of 2180 F250 Super Duty 4wd troubles
Aug 11, 2005 (7:09 am)
I have a 2003 F250 Super Duty 6.0 Diesel 4wd that is having problems with the 4wd unit. It seems to slip out of 4wd low from time to time. When that happens I have to get out and manaully lock the hubs in then it appears to work fine. I have had the truck since it was new and have had all required maintenance done. I use the 4wd daily as I need it to get up my driveway. I have taken the truck to the dealer and, of course, it wouldn't fail for them so they couldn't fix it. Any suggestions on what to do next or what the problem might be?
#1401 of 2180 2005 f150 vibration

I guess that was one of those incremental mods Ford's made to the trucks. In my year ('01), the door wasn't replaceble. Lotsa folks were angry when they had to replace the whole overhead.
