In Response To ford‘s Cruise Control Deactivation Switch Recall. Yes, I Have Been Notified Of My vehicle Affect By This Recall. But Have Been To The Dealer Twice With Them Telling Me They Have No Parts To Resolve The Issue. Also, Have Not Allowed Then To Just Deactivate The Cruise Control Because Of The Low Possibility Of Having An Issue. I Spent Money For This So I Have It To Use When Needed Not To Be Deactivate Because ford Cannot Provide Parts To Fix It. So At This Point I Have Decided It Would Be Best To Take Matter In My Own Hands To Resolve This Issue. I Know ford Is Making Effort To Resolve This Issue But Feel It Is Weak By The Fact They Send You A Notice And They Have No Parts. Not Just Once But Twice. So I Have Found An After Market Oem Replacement Part To Replace The Affected Part. But No One Can Tell Me Whether This Part Is A Newly Designed Part And Resolves The Recall Issue. One Would Assume It Would Be But Assumption Can Be Wrong. The Published Technical Documentation For This Recall Issue Is Weak And The ford Dealers Are Also Clueless. So What Does The Nhtsa Have To Offer Besided The Documented Conversation Between The ford And Nhtsa. Their Needs To Be A Document For The Industry And Consumer Uses To Determine What Parts Are Good Or Suspect. Being An Safety Organization, One Would Think The Nhtsa Would Be All Over This And Have This Well Documented, Pulished And Controlled And Help The Industry And Consumers Resolve Issue Like This Insisted Of Relying On Corporate America Alone. Corporate America Has Only One Interest Which Is Profit Not Personal Well Being ! Regards. *tr

The vehicle Had Been Sitting In The Driveway And Had Not Been Driven In Over 24 Hours Prior To The Fire. We Were Awakened By Our Local Police And Fire Departments, Alerting Us To The Fact That The Truck Had Been On Fire. They Were Able To Successfully Put Out The Fire Prior To It Spreading To Our Home. The Fire Originated On The Driver’s Side, Under The Hood, Around The Wheel Well. This Was Documented By Our Fire Department. The Front End Of The Truck And The Driveway Have Been Melted, And The Truck Is No Longer Drivable Or Fixable. Coincidentally, We Received A Letter From ford This Week Stating That The Recall On This Truck Had Not Been Done And That It Could Result In Fire. We Purchased This Truck From A Private Party On May 11, 2008 And This Was Our First Notification Of A Recall. Of Course Immediately After Purchasing The Truck We Registered It With The State Of Illinois To Obtain Plates In Our Name, And We Were Issued Our Registration. We Owned This Truck Exactly 6 Months To The Date When The Fire Occurred. If We Had Been Sent A Notification Prior To The Fire, Rather Than Afterwards, We Could Have Had This Cruise Control Recall Addressed. At This Point The vehicle Is Scrap. We Are Holding On To The Truck, Until We Can Reach A Determination Of ford‘s Responsibility In This Matter. *tr

1997ford F150, We Were Accelerating On The Highway From 30 Mph Out Of A Construction Zone Back To Highway Speed (65mph). The Truck Has An Automatic Transmission And Cruise Control. Cruise Control Was Not Activated. Suddenly, The vehicle Stuck Into Full Acceleration Mode. Sharply Applying The Brakes Had No Effect In Slowing The vehicle. The Foot Accelerator Was Down Fully, The Floor Mat Was Not Involved. The Driver Tried To Lift The Foot Accelerator With Her Toe, But It Was Stuck Down Fully. It Could Not Be Lifted. Within 2 Miles The vehicle Was Accelerating Well Past 100 Mph. Cars Ahead Were Stopped At A Traffic Light. In Desperation We Repeatedly Hit The Brake Hard And Sudden With Full Effort. There Was A Pop And The Accelerator Came Back Up. The Truck Was Pulled Over And Inspected There Was No Apparent Issue With The Accelerator Petal. It Moved Easily And Normally. The Truck Was Started And Test Drove, And Everything Including The Cruise Control Worked Normally. We Continued Driving Without Any Further Incident. I Assure You It Was Not Driver Fault There Is Something That Actively Pulls The Accelerator Down Even When The Cruise Is Not Activated. Hitting The Brake Did Not Stop The Activation. This Was A Close Call And We Have Very Credible Witnesses And Drivers To Explain In Detail What Happened. The vehicle Has About 189000 Miles On It And Has Never Done This Before That We Know Of. We Bought It Used, And It Is In Original Condition, No After Market Gaskets Or Alterations. James Gibson *tr
