    New 2018 F150 Steering problem

    Hey guys this is my first post. I have a 2018 F150 Lariat and my problem is the steering drifts to either the right or the left while driving on any street or highway at any speed. I brought it to the dealer twice and they can't seem to figure it out. The first visit they did a wheel alignment. the second visit they called ford engineers and they said to turn off the lane correction from the drivers identification center. I don't think i ever turned it on. I think I turned it off. But if it were on and I drive down a street without the white lines it shouldn't move and it would alert me first right?? BTW tires are at 35-37psi 20" good year wranglers.

    Any help or input would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    I have a Ď18 Lariat 502A package. Zero drift issues. Lane assist works as advertised. I only keep the alert on and the steering assist off, I donít like when it jerks the wheel. I plan to turn it on during long trips in case I fall asleep.

    Look by your odometer and you should see Green lanes, letting you know you have the lane assist on. Iíll try to take a photo tomorrow to show you what it should look like when you have lane assist on.

    I do all my chatting on F150Ecoboost and F150Forums. This site seems to be not as lively.

    have the same issue / 2018 xlt - eco / 7,500 miles

    It is like driving an old cadilac / between 10-2 on the wheel there is no resistance at all /

    you tend to pull down on the left or right depending on how you drive

    noticable all of the time - more so in town or slower speeds.

    had to dealer 2 times

    tech diagnosed it as a steering control module / aka a rack and pinion I guess - but an electronic version.

    just got it back yesterday - slight improvement.

    nonsense for a 50k truck

    i have a 2017 pro master city work van that handles better than this thing.

    turning radius just blows - I swear it was never like it is now - takes about 2.5 - 3.0 wheel turns to make a turn...

    I had to lemon law a windstar van back in the early 2000's / took a year. swore I would never ever buy another ford - WTF did I do - bought one -

    so not sure what to do now -

    I was hoping I would be driving happy - but nope - pisses me off.
