View Full Version : F250 Sd 2005 Deadly

I ALMOST DIED THIS WEEKEND>>>>Heres my story, In Sept. last year i leased this 05 F250 and since has given me nothing but trouble. Exhaust problems (in 3 times for that) Injector failed, and many little bugs that the dealer cant fix.
Well just this past Saturday on I-94 doin about 70mph, the engine hesitates for a second (like it cut out) then suddenly the wheels locked up and I lost control, skidding - almost hitting 3 other cars, and then the wall on the shoulder. Finally after steering on to the shoulder - Stopped, and basically had a panic attack, saw my life flash before my eyes. Sat for a couple minutes, then got out to look at the wheels and under the truck for any clues as to what had just happened. Nothing visible. So now what? I start up and stroll along the shoulder to the nearest exit the tow / haul light is flashing on and off... Drive about 30mph on a city road with my flashers on.. not but a 1/8 of a mile it locks up again and then frees up, and rolls. I am now freakin out. I pull into the nearest parking lot before it happens a third time, and now the Engine light is on and there is a ticking sound from near the fuse panel under the steering column. I park the thing and call ford roadside asssitance, but because its sat. the dealer is closed. So i tell them to pick it up on Mon at 6:00 from where i have it parked. And now i think i have some PTS - post traumatic stress. I am a wreck! I could have died. What if i had my 4mo old baby with me.??? I WANT OUT OF THIS LEASE.
What am i gonna need to do ..? Probably get a lawyer.. The truck only has 4,000 miles on it . 2005 F250SD Gas Any input would be appreciated.

First of all, if you havent figured it out by now, you got a lemon. you're fully justified in wanting out of the lease immediately, before you or someone you love is hurt or killed in the truck.

second, a lawyer might be a good idea, discuss your legal options with one, dont worry about suing anyone just yet though. if they can find you a way out of this lease, great.

Just use your head, keep cool and you'll get something hopefully.

Your thread title is completely misleading and quite frankly a lie.

Other than that good luck with dealing with a corporation.

My dad had a 2500 hub come apart on the highway. Can we change the name to trucks are deadly?
