  1. About done with Ford (Paint Peeling)

    I'd assume paint isn't listed as something the ESP cover, unfortunately. I feel like this is an area I should check more often just to play it safe.
  2. 2024 Platinum interior - real life photo

    This is a standard thing for Powerboosts. Not sure if that's what this truck is but I assume it is looking at the 120V breaker reset to the right of the touchscreen. It's a common thing for hybrids.
  3. How long do you plan on keeping your truck?

    I like my truck a lot but don't love it. I don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon but I'll see where life takes me. I probably won't keep it once my 8 year extended warranty is up, but I could get rid of it next year for all I know. I had two vehicles the past 18 years so I don't...
  4. ⚠️ Recall: Electronic Parking Brake Unintended Activation -- affects 870K F-150 (from 2021-23 model years w/ single exhaust system)

    It's a case by case thing. I don't remember exactly what needed fixed by recall on his vehicle, I'm just saying the manufacturer will try to get out of whatever they can just because a checkbox is blank.
  5. ⚠️ Recall: Electronic Parking Brake Unintended Activation -- affects 870K F-150 (from 2021-23 model years w/ single exhaust system)

    This. A colleague at work purchased a fairly new (probably 2-3 years old) Hyundai used that he had to replace the engine out of pocket because a recall was not done by the previous owner. I don't know the whole story and it's not apples to apples but manufacturers will do anything they can from...
  6. Has anyone noticed a difference with Adaptive Steering?

    I "paid" for it because it came with the trim as a standard option. Not sure I'd pay for it as an extra, but maybe it works so well that it's doing it's thing and I can't notice
  7. Has anyone noticed a difference with Adaptive Steering?

    Only thing I notice is there is minimal effort on my end when it comes to turning the wheel while parking. I assume that's the adaptive steering helping out but I'm not sure. As far as driving, I don't know. I don't drive any other vehicles so I'm not sure if I've just gotten use to the way the...
  8. Wall Street Journal Article - regarding UAW Strike.

    I worked at a manufacturing plant for 8+ years that ended up sending 90+% of the production line down to Mexico. Sadly the quality did end up going up after that happened. For my current job I get to fix myself or write up quality issues from union electricians and plumbers. Not all of them are...
  9. Bought ‘23 Platinum PB with no sunroof

    My truck has 15k miles and I open my moonroof frequently and haven't had any issues so far. I got my windows tinted (including moonroof) within a month of buying the truck so I can't comment on heat but it's not an issue for me. I like that I can close the shade, open the shade, or open the...
  10. Transfer Switch Gameplan - Thoughts?

    If your power goes out as often as you say I'd just get the Generac panel and call it a day. I've run extension cords around my house from the truck a handful or more times and it sucks, especially when power is restored a lot quicker than the electric company quoted lol
  11. 2021-2023 F150 suspect wiring harness chafe to rear axle

    Half a day to determine if they need to secure a wire harness under the truck with a ziptie?
  12. 2024 F-150 Refresh Revealed! New Design, Tech, Base 2.7L EcoBoost Engine, Pro Access Tailgate

    The new tailgate seems like a worse version of the Ram. Blue Cruise price seems very high for what it is. I use it fairly often but no way I'd pay that much a year for it. I know it's a midcycle but it seems pretty underwhelming, not that I was looking to upgrade from my 22 anyway. We'll see how...
  13. Photos: 2024 F-150 Models/Trims (XLT, STX, Lariat, Platinum, Tremor) & Tailgate + Tech

    The console shifter mechanism feels so cheap. I don't have much faith in it lol
  14. Powerboost Tractor Pull vs. Lightning and Rivian

    Now do the same test and afterwards count the number of feet each truck can drive until empty with the remaining battery/gas left over.
  15. Freezing/glitching middle screen, including loss of rear view camera and loud buzz/static ('22 Tremor 402a w/B&O)

    I deleted the truck from my phones Bluetooth and did a factory reset on Sync4 and haven't had any issues since. If you go that route just make sure you go through all the settings again, including setting up Ford Pass or else stuff like Blue Cruise will not work if you have it. I tried that a...
  16. Leak? Normal? Real Differential

    I'd take it to the dealer and see if they can warranty it. Sure it's not a crazy leak but if you can get it fixed for free under warranty then why not. It'll get worse before it gets better. Of course it'll come at the price of having to deal with the dealership lol.
  17. 80k frustrations

    I have the same truck with similar miles and haven't had any of those issues. Seems like you drew the short straw unfortunately.
  18. BlueCruise 1.2 installed in F-150 -- review & hands-free driving video

    My truck handles most curves without issue. There's a curve on an overpass that's bumpy and it has no problem with it. I will say that every now and then it may disengage randomly only to re-enablle itself several seconds later. Overall if I have to manually intervene or take control of 10-15...
  19. Dangerous B&O sound system issue

    I mean it sounds like it doesn't exactly correct the issue, only lowers the volume when it happens lol
