Recall Alert: 2015 Ford F-150

2015-ford-f150-recall

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 33,500 model-year 2015 Ford F-150 pickup trucks manufactured between March 18, 2014, and Aug. 5, 2015, at the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan, and between Aug. 11, 2014, and Aug. 6, 2015, at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri

The Problem: When passing a large, highly reflective truck, the adaptive cruise control radar could incorrectly identify the truck as being in the F-150's lane of travel; this could cause the vehicle to brake until the large truck is no longer perceived to be in the same lane. This issue could also result in the activation of the collision warning system's red warning light and tone, as well as the illumination of the brake lights. The unexpected braking could increase the risk of a crash involving a vehicle traveling behind the F-150. Ford said it is aware of one accident possibly attributable to this issue, but no reported injuries.

The Fix: Dealers will update the adaptive cruise control module software for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 for more info.

Ford sucks.

@LMAO

Yo are wrong. Just read what this article says.

So when semitruck starts to brake, because he is going to make right turn, Ford in the left line passing him will stop as well for no reason and hit the brakes even heavier. Awesome.

I don't want to drive behind F150. Keep them of the streets.


Please educate yourself prior to looking stupid.

Again gomer the system cannot slam on the brakes. It just cannot. I know your a biased Fiat guy and have no amount of reason in you but the system has limitations by design. It cannot slam on the brakes. That is what the red warning is for. Alert the driver to act accordingly. There is no scenario like yours in the description of the recall. You are making that all up. I'm sorry but you are 100% wrong with not working knowledge of these systems at all. You are a mere keyboard Cowboy full of misinformation and sheer bias with absolutely no knowledge base at all. If you don't believe me take this challenge. If you believe the system will slam on the brakes, I will drive the F150 at you at highway speeds with active radar turned on. You stand out in front of me. By your misinformation you are spreading you should have no issues at all. You know, because they system will slam on the brakes.

@LMAO
It wall warn you first and if you don't respond quickly , it will slam the brakes. ACC is now always paired with a pre-crash system that alerts you and often begins braking.That's how it works in Ford F150.

Prove it Gomer. I challenge you to show me adaptive cruise control is accompanied buy collision avoidance

You can challenge your first born son. Please go to ford dealer and ask how this system works.

Educate yourself prior to looking stupid.

Educate yourself prior to looking stupid.

First off, look in the F150 owners guide. Everything is all in there.

I ordered a 2015 F150 King Ranch on 14 February 2015 and took delivery of it on 20 June 2015. Traded down from my 2012 Super Duty King Ranch with the 6.7L powerstroke because it developed the death wobble and Ford could not fix it (was in the shop 3 separate times, which Ford has since issued a recall over). I ordered it with every option that was available, 6.5 ft bed, 4X4, 5.0L V-8, white platinum, with a sticker price of $64,585. One of the options that was most exciting to try, and I have since fallen in love with, both towing and not towing, is the adaptive cruise control. The only complaint I have with it is this very issue. I reported it back in July to my ford dealer, and the mechanic and service manager just stared at me like I had a Dck on my forehead. Now, there is finally a fix. It is very un-nerving when you are traveling at 70mph with the massager on in the seat and all of the sudden out of nowhere, the collision warning lights go off, and the truck slams on the brakes.

Come on Gomer, I said facts not Internet threads. I practically spoon fed you the facts. Now it looks like I need to open your mouth and dribble it on your tongue. Page 211 and forward in the F150 manual. Pay really good attention to the warnings. I'm sure you can pull your head out of your button long enough to read it.

It's time for you to read this recall article again. And slowly this time.
That's the fact.
No wonder ford sale so many trucks . Jesus, why do I have to share this planet with people like this. LMAO.


Again Gomer you are 100% clueless. In fact no where in the recall snipit does it say it will slam on the brakes. Please learn some facts because your Fiat blinders are on full bore. I guess all the fiat deaths and injuries really didn't happen. I also assume that those recalled trucks are completely safe with bad front ends and airbags that are to small for the cabin space. Please, I beg if you where in the recall or in the description and operation of this system does it say it can slam on the brakes. Really, for your sake I want you to show this to me in actual fact and not on an Internet forum. Oh, and show me the operational speed range of this system, FYI this setting up up......

more technology more money to fix, ,,why they don't build a pickup like before no electric window simple interior,,no gadget ,,better price,,

@LMAO
Of course there is a scenario, when ford slams the brakes to prevent accident and scenario I described is completely legit.

So how is it now? Let me remind you.

Go to the Best selling trucks in August thread, you might have a more success there, because this is clearly over you head.
LMAO.


Come on Gomer, you can do better than that. You are soooooooooooo smart. This should be easy for a guy like you to figure out where the info that you are spewing is. Comon little buddy. YOU can do it.

You are under influence, or lacking brain capacity, so this discussion is over.

Lets just hope that all manufacturers get these issues resolved in a timely matter.

Yikes! This does sound quite scary, so it's good to see that they're doing something about it.
