Major SAFETY issue of course call FORD motor directly 1-800-392-3673 and explain what has / is happening with the vehicle...Set up a Gopro cam or other recording device in case it happens on the way to the service center. Youtube, likes these kinds of Vehicle Promotional videos, and it helps people decide whose Trucks / Vehicles they're going to buy! Regards
