The Problem: The driver's seatback may have been improperly welded and may not adequately restrain an occupant in a crash, increasing the risk of an injury. Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the driver-seat backrest frame for free.

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 for more info.

Still waiting for a recall on my 07 f150. Cost some serious coin for that tow.

I can't believe they mount that driver under the truck the way they do. You would have thought they'd at least move it to a better spot and protect it from corrosion a bit better. It's such an obvious safety hazard when the pump module dies. I've seen trucks that had that module fail first hand. Luckily they had already gotten off the interstate before the module decided to fail.

Then you hear a commercial from RAM claiming there are more old Dodge and RAM trucks on the road than any other brand; claiming the crown of "most durable." I thought Chevy held that "honor"

"What state requires 26 yo vehicles to pass emissions?"

Who said anything about emissions? It was a safety inspection... but Maryland does require all registered vehicles to pass emissions if they ever had emissions gear installed by the factory. Even when they don't have ODB, they get a tailpipe test at 2000rpm.
