The Torsion Bar Failure Was Not An Isolated Incident. I Have Heard Of Several Others Reported To My Dealer, And Have Found A Number Of Others On The Web. I Found The Failure Unusual Since I Do Not Use The Truck Off-road, It Is Driven Like A Car. Also, I Have Never Had Or Heard Of Spring Or Torsion Bar Failures Like This. I Suspect Either Faulty Material Or A Design Problem. Had The Failure Occurred At Any Considerable Speed, There Would Have Been Aloss Of Control Of The Vehicle With Nothing Supporting Half The Front End. *ak

This Is A Follow-up To Odi#704135 Filed Yesterday. In This Incident, The Torsion Bar Broke While Thr Truck Was Sitting In Our Drive-way. It Was Fixed Under Warranty By Vermillion ford, 101 West Cherry, Vermillion, Sd; Phone 605-624-8624. They Sent The Paper Work To ford, But They Could Not Tell Me If ford Requested That The Torsion Bar Be Sent Back To ford.

While Parked, Unoccupied And Not Running, In An Closed Garage The Right Side Torsion Bar Broke In Two. The Break Occurred Just Behind The Location Where The Torsion Bar Fits Into The Lower Control Arm. As A Result Of This Failure The Right Front Suspension Dropped Approximately 8 – 10 Inches. From Examination Of The Part It Is Clear From Corrosion In The Break That The Part Had Been Cracked For Sometime Before Final Catastrophic Failure Occurred. While This Vehicle Has Just Over 49k Miles, They Have Been Primarily Highway Miles. The Vehicle Has Never Been Used For Towing And Has Never Been Used In An “off-road” Environment. ford Has Been Notified And Is Willing To Repair At A Discounted Price. However, They Will Not Acknowledge The Existance Of A Problem. While I Have Shown The Dealer The Broken Part, I Am Retaining The Part And Refusing Repairs At This Time Due To ford‘s Lack Of Demonstrated Concern Over This Situation. I Has Registered A Conplaint Over The Phone With The Nhtsa. However, I Am Filing This Complaint To Demostrate The Urgency Of My Concern. If This Failure Had Occurred During Highway Driving, It Would Have Almost Certainly Caused An Accident Possibly Causing Bodily Injury. Reviewing Complaints Listed On The Nhtsa Web Page I Quickly Found Several Complaints Of Torsion Bar Failure And A Nhtsa Action (pe98009). If It Is Possible, I Would Like To Obtain A Copy Of The Results Of That Action. At This Time I Have Serious Concerns About The Safety Of This Vehicle As Well As Like Vehicles On The Highway. *ak
