Question about 2006 Ford F-150
All of the sudden in the past few days, I noticed my brakes grinding hard. Usually when I have had break problems in the past or needed new pads, they squeel a little bit but this was bad. I took it to a Goodyear shop and they told me that all 4 of my rotors were "Under Spec" and needed to be replaced ($1500).....I have NEVER had brake work or any real work for that matter but at 60,000 miles I feel that I shouldn't have failing brakes.....
Should I take it to a ford dealership and ***** about it or just **** it up and pay it?
I had a simailar problem with my 2006 F-150 Brakes and this was after bringing it in for the recall mentioned above ( Recall 08505) The brakes were good until I had about 34K miles and then one day
the brakes started to grind and screach when applying brakes at low speed. As the above reader had stated, No warning! I do not understand in a day of high technology that ford does not have a senson that indicated your brake pads have worn out. This truck has been a pain in the 2 years of ownership, it has been in the service department for a transmisssion problem ( 4x4 Transfer motor replaced)
power stearing pump replaced and the recall, now the brake issue. Now I know why more guys are going to Toyota or Nissan Full Size Trucks. This is my last Ford Truck!

Ford 2006 150 blows. My 4 wheel drive engage mech was not working due to bad seal. Vacuum wouldn't hold so while driving the 4 wheel was trying to engage by itself. Was fixed under warrenty.
Now it is doing the exact same thing. I am 4,000 miles over warrenty and instead of the gasket being replaced like last time under warrenty.
Hubs themselves need to be replaced under money coming out of my pocket. 2 yr. old truck. I've used 4 wheel drive probably 6 or 7 times. I am disgusted. My last 5 vehicles have been Ford. This is the last one ever. Now I know why Ford doesn't match Japanese warrenty packages. They are ****!

I have the same truck - 2006 Ford F150 and just received a recall notice on the trucks brakes. Not actually the brakes/pads, but the brake booster vacuum hose connection to the intake manifold. You may want to call your dealership and ask them to look at your truck regarding the recall - it may save you the $1500. My letter states to call your dealership, tell them it's Recall 08S05. You'll need your VIN # too. If you don't have a dealer, go to www.geniuneservice.com
Hope this helps.

With ti being a 2006 i doubt that ford will make good on it but it will not hurt to call and check as far as the shop try to find a mech. that does work on the side and get everything replaced it will be much cheaper
