I recently had dealership perform front brake job on my 99 F-150. Immediately following my brakes started getting hot, smelling and applying (not grabbing or pulling). Several times over 3K miles the truck has had to be returned to the dealership for 4 days at a time only to find nothing. Keep in mind my mileage of 60K @ 13 yrs old. Yes she is a Sunday driver. It goes to the lake on Sat. And flying on Sun. On 3-30-12 it had to be towed back to dealership due to locked down front brakes, has been there over two weeks without any replies from the dealership as to any progress being made at finding brake problem and has now mysteriously developed gremlins. Reports from the dealership state that now the transmission will not shift, the odometer reads dashes, all of the lights on the console light up and the overdrive light is flashing. All of this transpired 11 days into its stay at dealership and I had to call them to find out this much.I have called them three times and visited dealership twice since 3-30-12 requesting to be kept informed as to their progress and still they neglect to keep me informed.I know they screwed the pooch and are now trying to bury evidence but how much damage have they caused to my truck and how is this going to be corrected? They still have my truck and are still trying to find ways to charge me more money. Hell my brakes still don't work. Maybe there is a higher power to speak to at Ford? Answers appreciated!
