Issues with the Ford F-250 & F-350
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), current models of both the Ford F-250 and F-350 have been peppered with serious consumer complaints. The majority of complaints all have to do with losing control of the vehicle due to slight bumps in the road, especially when traveling at highway speeds.
Hundreds of consumers have told the NHTSA that hitting even a little abnormality in the road while traveling quickly causing the entire truck to start shaking, making steering a challenge. In order to stop the shaking, they have reportedly needed to stop the vehicle entirely, placing them in danger of being rear-ended while stopped on the highway. The severity of the defect has been coined the “death wobble” by many drivers, who are afraid to drive their trucks due to the high risk of losing control of them at highway speeds.
Although crash confirmations are still being investigated by the NHTSA, it appears that the “death wobble” defect of both the Ford F-250 and F-350 Supers has contributed to rollover accidents in the past. Drivers who need to round a corner while their cabin is shaking may lose control of the vehicle, sending it toppling over onto its side before rolling, potentially crushing the cabin.
Did Your Ford F-250/350 Truck “Death Wobble”?
After being in a rollover accident while driving your Ford F-250 or F-350, it is important to try to remember as many details as possible about what led up to the crash. In particular, did your truck start to shake violently and wrest control out of your hands? Have you complained to your Ford dealership about the issue before? Your claim may be bolstered if there is a record of complaints and service about the problem.
Even if your truck has never wobbled before your rollover accident, the issue is so common among Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks that Ford and your local dealership should have known about it and warned you. Yet, there is no current recall announcement for these two types of trucks regarding their wobbling or rollover dangers.
