While driving on highway @ 60mph, my 4 wheel drive activated without my touching the dash control. The front axle made terrible grinding noises and the vehicle slowed dramatically. Dealer told me it was a vacuum line and Ford replaced under warranty.
Difficulty in shifting, clutch to the floor/non-responsive. Upon taking in to dealer problem was due to clutch slave cylinder failure. This rendered the vehicle non-operable. Dealer replaced clutch slave cylinder and was authorized to replace clutch due to wear and labor involved should it fail in the near future.

I have had problems with the absbrakes on this vehicle 5 times the dealership told that there is nothing wrong but the front brake do not work still this truck is not safe to drive. The tranmission sounds like it if about bust in half every time you shift it from first. They said it shifts fine. Iam a certified drive train mechanic it dont shift fine. I will be consulting an attorney about persueing a lemon law claim.
Transmission won't go in 1st gear for take off. Once in reverse to neutral, it won't go in 1st gear. Dealer has looked at transmission twice, but said that there was no problem. They have offered to give a loaner vehicle to check the vehicle again.
Transmission does not shift smoothly from 1st to second gear. Gear grinding is occurs.

Ninety percent of the time I have to force gearshift into 2nd gear. Now, after 11 months going into third gear occasionally grinds. This is not only very aggravating, but dangerous as well. Cars with automatics have to slow down suddenly because I'm trying to get into second gear without clashing the gears anymore than necessary. I took it to the dealer and of course they said all was well. I even went through the hassle of going to another dealer, driving 2 more identical trucks, and they did the exact same thing except for the 3rd gear problem. The clutch seems to be ok, so really the only thing left are the synchronizers. Problem doesn't seem to be changed by temperature or any other outside influences.
Difficult to shift into 2nd gear when cold in the morning. Ford is aware of problem and is doing nothing to fix vehicle.

5-speed manual synchronized transmission is so poor in shifting timing that it continually misses second and third gears.

Vehicle experiences trouble with the transmission, sometimes it won't go into reverse.
When putting vehicle in reverse on slight incline will roll forward, also when putting in drive on slight incline vehile rolls backward. Took to dealer and dealer indicated normal characteristics for vehicle.
Consumer states there is a slack feeling in the powertrain.
