When it comes to the latest and greatest in cars and trucks on the market, many of them come with a great deal of electronics on board with the aim of making life a little bit easier and more automated. However, that’s not exactly how it always works.

If these electronics cease to function properly, it can mean more expensive repairs and more things that could potentially go wrong, rendering your vehicle systems useless or injured. In other words, the systems are great while they’re working but if they stop working, you’d better break out that wallet.

This time, we check out a brand-new 2017 Ford F-350 as its new owner attempts to break in the four-wheel-drive system but finds out that, at the beginning of the truck’s life, the four-wheel-drive has a couple of unexpected kinks that probably got this new owner a little bit worried. Now, he does say that they did sort themselves out before long but an initial hiccup like that had to be a cause for concern.
