Good for him!  At least he and his family will have a higher survival rate now and feel much safer in their Ford knowing they no longer have to constantly worry about unexpected loss of power steering, unexpected loss of braking, and unexpected oil line rupture resulting in total engine failure.  

Sudden loss of braking? You mean like this?

https://topclassactions.com/lawsuit-settlements/lawsuit-news/861778-brake-failures-prompt-consumer-outrage-and-a-ford-f-150-brake-class-action-lawsuit/

 

In the case of GM's loss of brakes, the brakes still worked, they just didn't have power boosted brakes. The person typically had an early warning since the vacuum pump usually makes horrific noises as it began to fail. When F-150's were suddenly losing the brakes, it's because the master cylinder seals fail and the vacuum pump sucked all the brake fluid out of the system without warning. The person goes to use the brakes and the brake pedal would drop to the floor and they would roll into a busy intersection. Even after incidences of this failure and federal investigations performed, Ford continued using the exact same vac pump and master cylinder for years after. The problem continued to occur. It still occurs today.

 

The GM power steering issue wasn't serious. It only occurred at extremely low speeds ("parking lot speeds"). Even in instances where electronic assist is disabled, the steering still works. It's an issue that has affected Ford's electric steering (EPAS) too. And how many oil line leaks have we seen this far? 4 or 5? Out of hundreds of thousands of trucks. Wow major situation.

To bad, Raptors were not involved in that recall!!!  Drive it a couple years, sale it for nearly what you paid for it. GM and Dodge, 30 percent drop leaving the lot. If u going to bash someone, better get your facts straight. You look like a total idiot.

What facts am I missing? I didn't even post a link to a recall. I posted a link to an ongoing class action lawsuit against Ford for sudden loss of brakes. Ford is still using a defecting brake system where the seals in the master cylinder fail, the vacuum pump sucks brake fluid out of the system, and the brake pedal goes to the floor without stopping or slowing the truck. It affects all F-150's with a turbocharged engine. That would include a Raptor with the 3.5 Ecoboost. Even non-turbocharged F150s sold in recent years have had master cylinder failures.

Ford F-150 Master Cylinder Problems Cause Huge Lawsuit

September 18, 2018 — Ford F-150 master cylinder problems have caused a proposed class-action lawsuit that alleges the trucks suddenly lose their brakes because the Hitachi master cylinders have piston cup seals that allow brake fluid to leak.

The lawsuit includes owners and lessees of 2013-2018 Ford F-150 trucks that allegedly have front brake circuits that can suddenly fail.

According to the plaintiffs, the front brakes are responsible for 75 percent of the truck's braking force and without the front brakes the trucks can fail to stop, or in some cases even slow down.

Drivers of the 2013-2018 Ford F-150 trucks report rolling through stop signs and red lights and watching as their trucks roll into objects because the master cylinders lose their brake fluid.

 

All 2013-2018 Ford F-150s use master cylinders supplied by Hitachi, with the pistons fitted with just a single cup seal responsible for containing pressurized brake fluid. The lawsuit alleges this is unusual because pistons within master cylinders are usually fitted with two cup seals to ensure that fluid does not leak out of the master cylinders.

The Hitachi master cylinders allegedly place twice the sealing loads on its single piston cup seals. But the plaintiffs also claim the design relocates the usual placement of the cup seal from the piston to the master cylinder’s bore where the single cup seal rests in a groove machined into the bore of the master cylinder.

I didn’t even lose 30% on my Sierra in 2.5 years and 25k miles, let alone off the lot. You’d have to be a “total idiot” to lose that kind of money on any full sized truck, even a ferd.

 

Also, hate to break it to you, but 2nd gen Raptor prices are already starting to return to earth, and will really sink like a stone when the V8 one comes out, and/ or when you get any kind of miles on it...nobody wants the time bomb. Wonder what was going on below with Car & Driver’s tester?

 

“In May 2017, just after completing its 1000-mile break-in period, our Raptor vaporized the 60-mph mark in 5.5 seconds and bulldozed its way through the quarter-mile in 14.2 seconds at 97 mph. By June 2018, some 39,000 miles later, it added 0.5 second to both milestones and lost 4 mph from its trap speed. In the wrap-up test, the truck needed an additional 2.5 seconds to reach 100 mph.”

 

I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about...:rolleyes:

2013-14 models. Hey I owned one of those. Limp home mode was common! That was a pile of sh... that’s when I bought the first Raptor. 

You did not mention the vibration issue of the last generation of GM trucks. Tell both sides! The truth is, all brands have had issues. Never again will I buy a new model year. I did it in 2013 and again in 19. Both were total failures and both are junk.

How do you think buying a 2020 GM would help? They're literally changing nothing, apart from adding some tech options and giving owners the choice of getting the A10 on some of the trucks on which it was previously unavailable.

I have stated clear back in February that they have a mild short or power on the negative side causing many of the electronic issues. It is the small changes you can’t see that will someday make it a great truck. Like better programming, brake modules, sensor location etc. I stood back and looked at clear design flaws and realized that the interior was designed by geeks who never drive a truck. Consider, the 4x4 buttons, try hitting 4 high going down a bumpy road or finding the stupid windshield washer button after a splash. But it sure is easy to turn the auto head lamp feature on and off using the button on the end of the switch. They need swapped. Little stupid things like these made me realize GM has total rookie engineering and it will take time. I think the mechanical issues will be solved. That side of The Silverado is nice. My 6.2 and 10 speed was nice. 

Airlines went through this several decades ago. You can’t have a plane in limp home mode. They all have back up systems and strict procedures and all use Reliability Centered Maintenance. Boeing is a good example of what happens when all this electronic stuff is not engineered correctly.

Buying a new model vehicle you are signing up to be a test pilot.

Simple.

Now some problems are poor quality parts, assembly or design.

I'm 6 weeks into my 6.2 Silverado. LTZ with Max Tow. Crew cab. So far its a dream. Its funner to drive than any other previous Chevy Trucks. 

 I had the 6.2 before and 6.0 before that. 5.3's before that. I still cant wait to drive it. Hell, I have already left and came back 3 times today! I know its all about longevity and quality. I wont know if it matches all the excellent ones I have had before for a long time,  but I sure hope it does.  

 I wish it sounded a little tougher and sat a little higher. I' getting to the age where I dont feel like modifying them anymore so I probably wont change a thing.  I'll tell you one thing. It is one sneaky quiet ZIPPY sonofabitch!!!!! Those that underestimate it in traffic are destined to ride BEHIND it.

      Actual photo of my brand new 2018 Silverado High Country. It's been at the dealer for about 2 weeks now - still has the temporary tag on it. I asked them to look into the vibration in the steering wheel. Haven't seen it since. I think the dealer is doing what they can and trying to fix it. But they don't seem to be getting any support from Chevrolet/GM. Nothing like replacing that new car euphoria with a good swift kick in the balls.  #Chevrolemon

      We have a 2015 Chevy High country. We have 65,000 miles on the truck at the moment. The front drivers side wheel hub assembly went out 2 weeks ago, the AC compressor fan sheered off 5 days ago, the engine has a ticking noise and the transmission has shifting problems. The tranny problem has been "fixed" 3 times. We are still having issues obviously.  Wondering if any others have had any or all.of these problems.

      I have nothing good to say about Gmc and there political puppet system when it comes to getting a vehicle fixed. They follow nothing you tell them along with the dealership which are completely useless. I have had issues with my 2014 Denali since day one. First issue was a body defect which they LIED right to my face after having meeting behind closed doors which was I was told not to be in the grounds at that time. After they trying forcing me in to insurance on my behalf keep in mind the truck had 900km on it saying I had damaged it I lost it. I then went multiple dealership lots around the city took and made a file which I dropped off with all the same issues and was told "were not obligated to speak about these vehicles at this time". Was never fixed, and could almost break tailgate handle off to this day if not careful is what I got left with. Anyone that trys to open it look at me and ask if it is locked. They have a system set up where you get no where, and want people to give up. I now had shifting issues for 3 years which the files shown my complaints progressively getting worse. I now been with this vehicle 3 years a new transmission has been installed with 2 engineers that cant figure it out. It now wont or may not get fixed till next summer apparently when they can fly another engineer out to what I was told alter the trucks computer while driving. I have all the video of the transmission spiking a 1000 rpm at times and when towing worse. It is as if the truck between shifts momentarily goes to neutral. Then they tried blaming on adaptive shifting, well then the vehicle was falsely represented from my last one that worked perfectly fine. This one was to be soooo much better but got worse and I am worried to tow with. Pretty sad when I went to another dealership explained situation and there advise again of course at my cost was "buy a new one and that one should be better". Wow, cause you cant fix this one I have to pay again to get one that does. To boot same word from word at a event that GM had there representatives at. Drop truck off and get a new one I was told you shouldn't have them problems again.
       
      Buyer beware the amount of lost time at work, and vehicles you might have to buy two of because the first one doesn't work might financially sink a consumer. I asked them after going with test drives, dropping the truck off a bunch times, having a personal trailer attached, etc who pays for all my lost time and diagnosis? Well no one, ohh ok I just made 4 more payments and still is not fixed. Seems fair. Well actually 30 months of payments since my first complaint that no one looked in to, but a bunch of service representatives I can see getting replaced in the future with robots. Keep getting told we need to see a light on the dash, ok well how about my camera showing what is going on? Maybe we have 2 issues computer and mechanical cause the light is not on but the truck is struggling.
       
      Try talking to an ambassador good luck. Most conversation started with them asking me what was going on and looking for information. I was really starting to wonder if I worked for General Motors as I had more information than they said they would get me. Then you get a different customer care person which was always a point of starting over. How may I help you and what is going on? Well the file I have explained 25 times now why not explain it again to get no where.
       
      I guess once a company like this gets so big they don't care and can just crap all over the general population. Dealer loyalty events, HAAA. There is no loyalty other than signing on that line for you to follow everything they say, but they don't have to do anything.

      I have gotten a couple of responses to my inquiries to automobile publications/news rags/etc. One specifically is asking to drive a vehicle that has the buffeting/pressure issues present. He will be traveling to Vegas, LA and Detroit so if anyone here lives near those cities, please PM me. He is willing to utilize his contacts at GM to help us get some additional attention to this growing issue. Please let me know.

      Hello,
       
      I recently bought a 2000 GMC Sierra 2500 extended cab SLT 2wd with the 5.3L. I was very excited about this truck initially as I got it at a great price, but I am starting to become overwhelmed with all of its problems I recently discovered.
       
      The previous owner purchased this truck at an auction, and put a lot of new parts on it mechanically and cosmetically. There are a lot of mis-matched parts on this truck and I can tell it is somewhat of a "Frankenstein." One thing I noticed is that there are 4x4 buttons on the dash, even though this is a 2wd truck (no T-case). So obviously someone put a new dash on from a 4wd donor. Also, the plastic around the ignition cylinder looks like its been monkeyed with, so someone was probably fooling around near the steering column.
       
      When I test drove the truck, the only light on was "Service Engine Soon." However, when I brought my truck to get an OBDII scan at the parts store it returned 14 codes (some duplicates) which are as follows:
       
      B0017 - Passenger frontal deployment loop open
      B0024 - Driver deployment loop short to ground
      B0036 - Discriminating sensor open or short to voltage
      B0051 - Deployment commanded
      C0265 - EBCM relay circuit
      P0430 - Catalyst system - Low efficiency (Bank 2)
      P0440 - EVAP system
      P0449 - Evaporative canister vent solenoid control circuit
       
      But, NO lights are ever on the dash except the SES. Shouldn't the airbag or SRS light be on as well? On startup the only lights that come are the SES, nothing else. All the gauges work, although they bounce oddly when I shut off the truck. The voltage needle also twitches very slightly when I use the turn signal. Also, when I turn on the headlamps, the only thing lit up is the cluster. The radio, climate controls, and everything else is dark. And, when I cleared the codes with the ODBII scanner, the radio went off and reset itself to 1:00?!
       
      I have literally spent hours on end searching in vain for a definitive answer to this host of problems with only little success. I am guessing that the "B" codes mean that I need a new SDM? Perhaps this truck was in a wreck?
      P0430 might be because of a small exhaust leak this truck has, or possibly the cat is bad. P0440 and P0449 might mean I need a new EVAP solenoid or can?
       
      Please help me, it would be greatly appreciated. This truck means a lot to my little family as it is how we are getting across the country for my new job in Tallahassee. Any insights would be very welcome. Thank you all.
