29: HVAC Issues
Recently it’s come to light that Ford has been having issues with HVAC systems in newer model vehicles. This problem pertains to loose knobs and in some instances, faulty buttons. While this wouldn’t be a major problem back a decade or so ago, nowadays the HVAC is connected to infotainment centers. Repairs can cost a great amount of money and oftentimes are not covered by the factory warranty. Ford is working to rectify these issues but you shouldn’t have to worry about such a problem when it comes to purchasing a new vehicle.
The electrical system in these vehicles has become so advanced that problems like this will occur. Ford needs to slow down on the rush to production and get the job done right the first time. Electronic issues tend to arise in all makes and models of cars from time to time, but Ford has experienced an especially high amount of service tickets related to HVAC controls according to Repair Pal.
