The 42-45mph hop/bounce and the random vibrations at higher speeds that wheel balancing nor Ford can fix.

The faint buzz I get after my truck is turned off. It lasts several minutes and is coming from the top center of the engine near the turbo. Just irks me.

The center console insert that collapses every time I reach in to grab something, spilling whatever I had within the tray!!

This ^^. And the jumpy shifting in low gears/speeds. Can't stand when it down shifts to 1st at 7-8 mph with virtually no throttle...just stay in 2nd!!

the lagging shift between 2nd and 3rd gear on a cold tranny... love getting bounced around the seat everyday on the way home from work, when I have to jump out onto a fast moving parkway right after pulling off the lot.

Mine is where the ignition is located. My keys hang down onto my knee. Use to bug the crap out of me but I guess I am use to it now.

That is an aggravating design...I know its peanuts but for the money we pay for these trucks there could have been a little more thought process put into that area.

I hate that the stupid rear doors dont unlock when the trucks running and you get out. My dodge as soon as it was in park and you open the drivers door would unlock all the other doors. Its stupid cold up here in the winter so the truck doesnt get turned off very often, every time I drop my daughter at school I get out and walk around to the right rear door to get her out and the stupid things locked, so I have to walk back to the drivers door, unlock and go back around the truck in -40 weather!!

I find that problem is due to the highways, I read about it all the time on here when I bought my truck and I never experianced it until I went on vacation in california. I drove down from BC and would randomly get that hop, annoying as hell! The only difference I can take from that is that your highways are more common to be concrete where all ours are asphalt.

Only about 22 gallons of usable fuel... Thought it was supposed to be 26 gallons? Never been brave enough to push it any further, dash says empty and 0 miles to empty, also seem to hear the fuel pump whine at low fuel levels.
