Usually when there is a refresh or new model coming, there are large discounts on the existing models to clear the dealership lots.

Although I do really like the exterior of the 2020s, and the rear wheel drive platform. Not buying a first year ford though.

There are worse trucks out there for sure.

Are the front side air scoops functional?

I'm pretty sure that's a negative, but I'll double check tomorrow.

I forgot to mention they tried to sell me the Ford ESP plan which I actually want with all the tech in this thing, but I knew they were going to rip me off. They quoted me 5 years 75K miles for ~$2600.

I just bought a better plan (6 years 85K miles) from Lombard Ford in CT that prides themselves for being one of the top ESP plan dealers out there for $1250. The plan includes pretty much everything including free lost key replacement as well as interior and exterior lighting. (those LEDs are expensive!)

The finance guy says, "oh if you don't buy it today it can be twice as expensive to buy later"...

Not in this case. All new platform that includes switching to RWD, and all new drive trains.

When I bought my Tundra, it was "first year" but the drive train was exactly the same as the older generation. In those cases I don't care if it's a first year model.

I was waxing it today, and noticed I was wrong about those lower front vents. They are functional. They go straight into the wheel well. Couldn't see that until I had it out in the driveway.

I drove it to the car store today to get some wax, and that ecoboost pulls without even trying. It's only got 100 miles on it, so I have yet to actually give it some hell. Merging onto the highway shouldn't be an issue anymore. RIP Honda Van.

Eleven months and 9,400 miles later... It's been at the dealer since Tuesday morning. No idea what they find, but all of the traction controls went nuts, and it wouldn't move forward. When I tried to put it in drive the entire thing shuttered violently.



Strike one Ford. I typically trade something immediately if it leaves my wife stranded, but this thing will cost me $13K in depreciation if I do, so it gets three strikes, then buy back.

GG Ford...

That sucks man. This is why I avoid Ford, GM/Chevy, Dodge/Chrysler junk at all costs. I had a ford (body) car and after that a pontiac and they gave me nothing but problems so I will never buy another American made POS again.

Hope this issue is resolved quickly (and cheaply).

Free fix for me since the car is still less than a year old. I actually have an 8 year full coverage warranty on it, but I don't like it when my wife and potentially kids get stranded. Ironically I bought a AAA membership right after I bought the Ford.

AAA saved my bacon more than once. Even though I have a (hopefully) far more reliable car than I had before (2014 Corolla) I still will keep my AAA membership as it's so cheap and the potential savings if/when you need them is more than worth it.

No joke. They are so much faster than the OEM in this case Ford road side response. When I had my infiniti and it was wrecked, I called them. Waited 4 hours, and still nobody showed up. I finally drove the damn thing home with a busted steering column and a crooked wheel. I didn't even bother calling the Ford road side assistance.

What is/was wrong with it?

The running joke that FORD = Found On Road Dead, or Fix Or Repair Daily still stands, though their trucks & SUVs have generally improved in quality over the years. Glad you got a good warranty. With all the computer systems in modern cars, it seems like a massive % of issues are computer/electrical rather than mechanical. Makes them harder to isolate & fix. More expensive too.

I called today for an update. He says, they changed out the MAP sensor. Yeah, not buying that. I get that triggering a check engine light, but what does that have to do with the rest of the drive train going crazy and shutting down?

I'm going out of town today, and my wife is afraid to drive her new car to Raleigh this weekend to see her sister.

I called today for an update. He says, they changed out the MAP sensor. Yeah, not buying that. I get that triggering a check engine light, but what does that have to do with the rest of the drive train going crazy and shutting down?

I'm going out of town today, and my wife is afraid to drive her new car to Raleigh this weekend to see her sister.
Sounds fishy, but who knows how interdependent the computer systems are that control everything? It's likely that the MAP sensor error was the only thing they found on the OBD2 scan. Dealer service departments tend to not investigate much further than that. Last time I took a vehicle to a dealer, I had to force them to test drive it, with me in the passenger seat, until we could reproduce the problem.

That doesn't sound right at all. Like you I can see it throwing a code but not much else. Certainly not what you described.

My first through about it being a MAP sensor -
Then I read up about it and yeah, it can do exactly what you described.

I'd make sure your plugs were replaced as well if they got all fouled up.

Quote:
Your engine misfires and shakes: If a MAP sensor reports a false high pressure reading, the engine's computer will signal for more fuel. This results in a rich mixture, which can foul the spark plugs and cause a cylinder not to fire. A misfiring engine will shake and transmit that motion into the cabin of the vehicle.
