Hello All,

BLUF

Expedition
Limited Max
Stealth Performance
Max Trailer Tow

Issue
Heavy Front Right Vibration felt throughout the entire cabin.

I'm new to this forum, but not new to Ford or the Expedition (1999,2006,2016,2022) nor other Ford vehicles to include owning 4 F Series trucks, 5 Explorers, and 3 Mustangs. However, I'm a little perplexed with this one. Zero-70 mph we're all good. Once I creep past 70 mph the right front starts to vibrate and gets increasingly worse as speeds approach 80 mph and can be felt in the steering wheel, floorboards, and other locations throughout the cabin. I first took the Expedition back the next evening after I purchased it and I got "We can't duplicate the issue" from the Service Manager. A week later I took the vehicle back and the Service Manager said the front right tire and wheel were out of balance. I drove it home and noticed a minor change (I could now go 73 mph before a noticeable vibration). I notified them of the issue and they said, "Let us research it".

I had already scheduled a vacation with the family and purchased the Expo for such occasions. I set off on 3300 mile roundtrip vacation and felt the vibration every mile over 73 mph down and back on Interstate 95 and every other road throughout FL with 70 mph speed limits.

When I returned home I took the Expedition into the shop on a Friday. On Saturday the Service Manager says, "Our Service Techs don't drive over the speed limit, so we can't duplicate the event/issue. I don't know what to tell you. No other 2022 owners are having the same issue".

Is anyone else having these issues? Can someone point me in the right direction? I though it could be a loose lug nuts, bad sensor for the CCD Suspension System, a bad shock, a bad barring, a rim out of true...

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

I have had to deal with this BS with two prior Fords an expy and 2008 f250. Take it to a discount tire store and see if they can fix it. Some stores have a special adapter that was able to fix my f250 vibration.

It sucks to think you spent this much money and the dealer give's this BS line. I would also climb the corporate ladder and email corporate about it. All the money we have spent on fords and to be treated like this is BS. Unfortunately it is not ford but the dealer and sometimes the dealer doesn't know how to fix.

My expy I went to ford ceo and then filed lemon law because they could not get the vibration fixed. I remember is being called death wobble

Good luck. Maybe it is just a bad tire

Don't have my SPP yet so can't say this is an issue personally but couple things to maybe try:

1: rotate the tires, see if the vibration 'moves' with the rotation or is still on the right front, may want to rotate a few times to eliminate different combos. I'd start with crossing the tires "LF to RR, RF to LR".
2: Getting the tires balanced with a road force machine may help a little more since the vibration balancing is done differently.
3: rotor inspection, this is easy to do if you rotate your own tires. spin the axle and watch the rotor, make sure it isn't out of alignment and chattering in the caliper. These should all be good straight and true parts but sometimes you get a bad one.

I had the exact same experience on my 2018 F150 with 20" wheels. they tried balancing the tires a couple of times but the only thing that fixed it was a new tire. They only agreed to replace the bad tire with a new one after we test drove another truck with the same size wheels and had no vibrating issues. I asked to swap wheels with the new vehicle and then they finally ageed to a new tire.

The Expedition is in the shop. I did a little investigating of my own. I checked both front half shafts and found the right one had a lot of slop, nearly 1/8 “ compared to the left 1/32. The shop is going to have a look at it. Fingers crossed.

PS my allocations came in last week, I couldn’t wait and found one at another dealership. My allocation is at CMA Williamsburg Ford 2022 Ford Expedition Limited Max Stealth Performance Edition, Rapid Red Metalic. 83k no upcharbe.
