Wow, what a mess. Are you purchasing another Raptor?
No, I cant get behind Ford because of the way everything went down.
It's a shame because I really did like the truck but with how un reliable it was the truck needed to go.
Wow! So let me get this straight, Ford identified that your transmission was flawed, but never replaced it?!
That’s my question as well.
It going to be tough down grading after owning a Raptor owner. The trucks are just bad ass and the truck everyone aspires to owning.
It will lol but I will get over it
What are you leaning towards purchasing?
Looking at a v3 possibly. But not sure. I have to buy the wife a new SUV so we'll see how it all plays out
Very discouraged to hear all of that. It's a shame that your whole owner experience was ruined because they wouldn't simply replace the transmission, which the dealer apparently couldn't fix. As it sits right now, does the transmission still have an issue?
For anyone else in a similar situation in which the dealer attempts multiple repairs on an engine/transmission with no resolution, I highly recommend asking for a Ford (corporate) Field Service Engineer (FSE) to be involved. Reason being that multiple repair attempts to fix the same component clearly indicate that they are either doing something wrong, or an issue is present that is very difficult to identify (for example a case casting defect). An FSE can be requested from Ford Customer Care or the dealership service management. For situations like this one, they will usually get one involved. The FSE will review the repairs that have been performed, and if it is determined that the issue is internal to the assembly, they have the ability to authorize complete replacement of the affected assembly (engine/transmission).
What is a v3?
Separate names with a comma.
