    Brake Squeak

    The new F-150's do it as well, same scenario. I think Ford may have switched suppliers during covid and we got these.

    This problem at hand is still ongoing. The dealer called and said Ford engineering recommended replacing the body control module. We’ll see.

    Intelligent Access key and HEAT

    That is definitely a thing. This issue is somewhat different as it doesn't really have any interference issues , more like there's a hardware piece is bad... supposedly.

    Feedback request for A/Ts for Big Bend....

    I don't think you will notice the difference with 235's vs 225's. My Badlands has the wild peaks and I really like them. I cant give any snow opinions, but can tell you they handle well in everything else. You can hear them but they are not noisy. I did a trip where on the highway portion I got...

    Oil Change

    The 1.5L will definitely be a little easier on oil with respect to oil dilution because of the combination Port and Direct injection as opposed to the direct only on the 2.0L. If you don't mind, when you get your report back from the analysis can you share it here?

    Intelligent Access key and HEAT

    According to Ford there are 7 antennas that detect your keys signal. Ford Overnighted the one they believe was the culprit that was in the console area and it was installed. So far the dealer says it works but hard to confirm because we don’t have 90 degree weather. Picking it up today and...
