    I purchased the vehicle above in the fall of 2010. Two months later, it was in the shop with fuel injector problems, and as luck would have it, the warranty on the vehicle just expired the month before. Needless to say, Ford didn't show any sympathy.

    Now, nearly a year later, the vehicle died on the side of the road. The cause? You guessed it: high pressure oil pump failure. So I paid $2,500 for my local dealership to fix it over the better part of a holiday weekend. Three days later, towing a Uhaul car trailer on a 400 mile trip, the truck shuts down again at 5:30 a.m. (while I was traveling 65 mph). I limp to the shoulder of the road, call for a tow, and a different Ford dealer says it's the same problem--high pressure oil pump--and dealer #1 didn't fix it correctly. To make things even more difficult, neither dealer agreed that i shouldn't have to pay for the same repair again. Instead, they pointed the finger at one another and said "take it up with them". Very, very discouraging.

    After spending a full day in the waiting area, the dealer #2 said they fixed it and gave me their guarantee it wouldn't happen again. 24 hours later, while towing a car on the trailer and merging off the highway, the vehicle dies AGAIN! I tow it back to Dealer #1, and yeah, you guessed it, high pressure oil pump failed again--the third time in 8 days!! You think the dealership would give me any of my $$ back? Think again.

    I'm a husband and father of two infant boys. Can you imagine what would happen if i broke down in the middle of nowhere? Ford won't hear it. In fact, after the 3rd repair on the oil pump, dealer #2 called me and said "we don't want to give you any money back yet because we don't believe dealer #1 fixed it for good. . . what we'd like you to do is put the truck through the ringer and see if you can break it again."

    Are you freaking kidding me?!?! What happens if the truck breaks again and sends me into another car? What if someone is injured/killed? You think ford will cover that? Ford service techs don't even have faith in the vehicle i'm driving!! What am i supposed to do?

    THANK GOD I RECORDED EVERY PHONE CALL AND CONVERSATION BETWEEN MYSELF AND THE FORD TECHS.

    Those micro recorders are super-handy. . . It's been 7 days and i'm still furious. So, first, i'm going to see what Dodge has to offer these days. Second, I'll start crying foul on every website I can find. Then i'll write to the BBB, the attorney general, and anyone else. Then i'll join one of these class-action lawsuits. With a story like this, and the recordings to back it up, Ford better give me my $$ back or i'll just get louder. What they're doing is just not right.

    I had some engine surge at idle on a Thursday. Drove the truck all weekend and had no problems, Engine light came on Sunday. Went to autozone had the code pulled and it said EGR flow insufficient. Monday the truck was revving high at startup, then no start. it would turn over all day long just not fire up. Took it to ford for diagnosis and they said High Pressure Oil Pump, IPR, ICP, new bracket for the Oil Pump because ford redesigned it $100, There was a leak in a downtube?, I had just replaced the EGR based on the Autozone code $250, anyway all total $2,200 in parts.
