ford Replaced The Straps On Gas Tank But Not The Tank Which Is Rusty From The Defective Straps. The Only Rust On The Tank Is Where The Straps Are. It Started Seeping A Very Small Amount Of Gas At That Point After They Replaced The Straps. *tr

My Daughter Researched Recall’s And Found Out There Was One On The Fuel Straps That Caused Them To Break. ford Will Not Approfve Paying For And Fixing My Gas Tank, Which I Feel Should Be Done Because It Was Their Fault That The Fuel Straps Were Bad And I Never Got A Recall. Am 79 Years Old On Social Security And They Want $700 To Fix Gas Tank. If Their Strap Wouldn’t Have Been Defective This Wouldn’t Have Happen And Luckley It Didn’t Exposed And Kill Me And My Passenger. Just Seems Very Unfair That They Don’t Cover The Whole Thing.
