2010 F150 Transmission

The alphabet started over once again in 2010 and will continue through 2030. For example, an F150 with a J in the tenth position of the VIN will have been manufactured in either 1988 or 2018. It should be easy to tell, based on the eye test of interior features and overall vehicle condition, which model is the 1988 and which is the 2018 F150.

2010 F150 Transmission
Failure Date: 08/13/2011

My family and I were driving interstate 81 in virginia on 8/13/2011. We were driving in the staunton, va area at approximately 70 mph where the rear wheels on my 2010 F-150 immediately locked up. I had the vehicle towed to a local Ford dealership, and with the help of Ford techs, they feel the issue was the transmission immediately dropped from 6th gear down to 1st gear. Fortunately the road was dry and I gained control and moved the vehicle safely off the road, however my concern is it doesn't sound like they are 100% sure that this was the cause, and even if it is, how do I know it won't happen again in the future. . . With a worse outcome. I feel this is a huge safety issue, and we were lucky we didn't get into a more serious accident. Now I have a vehicle that I don't know I feel safe in, and Ford seems to feel there isn't an issue, but I see numerous posts on the internet of similar situations. Should Ford be doing more to ensure their customers are safe in their vehicles, or should I just find another truck that is safer?.

Failure Date: 03/06/2011

I purchased this truck new December 2010. Its first problem was that on three separate occasions it stalled and died approaching a red light. I took it in and the tech reprogrammed the engine. I didn't have a problem for a month until today. Todays problem scared the crap put of me. I was cruising down the road at 70 mph when my truck shifted down from 6th gear to 1st. I fish tailed and almost lost it. I was going down a hill, it wasn't a very steep decline. My truck while cruising and going down hills usually shifts down one gear acting like an engine break to keep my speed from increasing. Today it went right from 6 to 1. Thank god no one was behind me or they would have plowed me. I got pulled over and started my engine, everything was fine. I drove for a little while longer and pulled over called roadside assist and had it towed to my local dealership. I purchased a Ford because they are supposed to be safe and dependable. The truck has 9500 miles on it.

My 2010 Ford F-150 transmission 'slams' between gears. Ford is aware of this problem but alleges that it cannot do anything until the software issue is repaired. The transmission slams between gears, at times the 4 wheel drive seems to engage when going around a corner.
