Curious, does anyone here have any idea how a class action suit is started? This thread has over 1800 posts. I understand they aren't all posts by unique truck owners who all have the same problem, but if we use the logic that this forum typically represents a very small percentage of F150 owners and extrapolate from there, seems this should capture some attorney's attention.

I presume it would take an owner who is currently experiencing this problem to contact a firm who specializes in class action suits. The only drawback is that class action suits are typically better for the attorney(s) than they are for the clients/consumers. I wonder if someone who has already gone through LL proceedings can also raise this matter with a class action firm?

I'm all for Ford products, they are all I've ever owned, but after seeing the post here about the one guy who LL'd an '11 and is now having the same damn problem with the '12, it's a generally frustrating situation for owners and prospective owners equally.

Seems this forum could be pretty powerful if someone wanted to figure out how to organize the appropriate legal support in favor of those who are having these problems.

Look at the database thread...theres only a hundred and some odd people who have posted their info in there. Obviously everyone who owns a truck isn't on this forum, but overall it is a fairly small percentage. Take into account that many people come here looking to solve issues, and that percentage drops even further. Further separate the people out that are having an actual engine/turbo/intercooler issue leading to this miss or loss of power from the guys that say they have a shudder, which is probably more transmission/drive shaft related, and the actual number of trucks drops further.

I'd rather make a go of it on my own than joing into a class action deal, and I think a majority of people would do the same.

I hope so. I'm on cat #3 in less than 20,000 miles. At this rate I should be up to 15 or so by the time I get to 100,000.

I admire your forthrightness in your acknowledgement, as I too feel stupid in buying a first generation vehicle to begin with!

Today is the real test..... 20,000 miles and haven't had a chance to pull my camper with everything set up the way I want.

I have the right hitch...... the perfect balance and will have a nice tail wind going south 200 miles...........

I have my Ultra Gauge so I can monitor my Cat temps, boost pressure, timing, VE, Horse power and torque.


I will be pulling in tow/haul fifth gear and running 65 mph at about 1800 rpm's
I expect very few if any downshifts.......

Terrain (Wichita, Ks to Ok City) is hilly on I-35..........

This is prime time for the shudder to appear. The dew point is high from LA all the way up through IA, and east to the coast. Watching the weather this morning, most areas have temps within 2 degrees of the dew point. That includes OH and we haven't had a drop of rain yet.

I had enough and finally found a fix for my shuddering, misfiring, falling on its face ecoboost.

Smart. The Ecoboost didn't work out for your situation, so instead of peeing and whining about it you took APPROPRIATE action to correct the problem. More people on here should follow your example than start pointless litigation wasting everyone's time and money.

Everytime I see someone lemon law a vehicle for the exact same model I laugh and think of people who live on floodplains and wonder why their house floods every year.

Why are you so dense? Theres people on here that have lemoned an Ecoboost, got another one and have not had any issues at all driving in the same exact location and conditions. You REALLY don't want to believe that there are some Ecoboosts out there having issues, do you?

Maybe you should stay out of this thread...you would know these things if you had read every single post of nearly 200 pages as I have, from day one of the start of this thread. That also means I've been dealing with these issues on my truck since before the start of this thread.

Do you even have an Ecoboost? Even if you do you obviously haven't experienced these issues.
