I Noticed The Paint Cracking And Went To The Local Dealership. They Sent Me To The Warrenty Paint Shop, Which Detedted The Thickness Of Paint. The Truck Has Never Been Painted By Me, The Original Owner. The Paint Shop Also Told Me, And Showed Me The Crack In The Door. The Local Dealership Said They Could Do Nothing For Me, But Cintact The Regional ford Rep. She Said ford Will Only Pay % 20 Of The $4450 Cost For The Paint And Door. I Feel This Is Outrageous, Since I Had Nothing To Do With The Damage And Poor Quality. The ford National “customer Relationship” Center Has Been Notified And Kept Abreast Of The Situation. They Say Today That The Regional Rep Has The Final Say. If This Is A Defect From The Factory, And Because I Took Good Care Of The Truck So The Defects Didn’t Show Up Until 61,000. Why Should I Pay? I’d Like To Know What %80 I Caused?*ak

Around 1 August 2001 I Was Talking With Some Friends At Work, During The Conversation Defects In The Door Design Of The New fordf-150 Pickup Truck Came Up. I Had Purchased An f-150 Super Cab In April 2001 And Hadnt Heard Anything About This Defect. My Friends Stated That The Door On The New f-150s Werent Designed Properly For The Weight Of The Door And Would Start To Develop Cracks. They Said That If I Took It To The Dealer ford Would Pay To Repair The Cracks. I Checked My Truck And I Noticed A Crack At The Lower Right Corner Of My Drivers Door Near The Bottom Of The Window. I Went To Crowne ford In Warrensburg, Mo 660-747-7111, On 6 Aug 01 And Spoke With Mr. Chris Marten He Informed That I Needed To Contact ford Directly Because Even Though I Purchased The Vehicle In April 2001 The Warranty On My Truck Expired In February 2001. After Arriving At Home I Called ford On 6 Aug 01 At 11:45am At 800-392-3673 And Spoke With Mark, Employee # 2547. Mark Informed Me That ford Would Not Repair The Defect Since The 3/36-warranty Period Had Expired. (note) What I Have Since Discovered Is That ford Has Known About This Defect Since 1997.

I Own A 1998ford F150 Pickup And Have Noticed A Crack In The Sheet Metal Of The Drivers Side Door Just Behind The Lower Part Of The Window. An Article I Was Reading Suggested Calling A ford Dealer For Repair, The ford Dealer Stated That ford Only Repairs The Vehicle For The First 36,000 Miles. The Article I Read Stated That ford Understands The Problem To Be Caused By Opening And Closing The Door And Window, Which Causes The Sheet Metal, In The Location Of The Crack, To Flex, Which Over Time Fails And Cracks. The Problem Will Only Get Worse With Time And Should Be Repaired Regardless Of The Mileage. My Concern Is The Location Of The Crack At A Corner Radius And Could Propagate Toward The Rear Of The Door. The Crack That Has Developed, Causes Two Problems, It Creates An Opening For Water And Salt To Corrode The Unprotected Sheet Metal On The Inside Of The Door And The Crack Creates A Problem, Were The Vehicle To Be In An Accident And Hit On The Drivers Side Door. Since The Crack Has Already Developed, It Would Take Little Impact For The Crack To Propagate Allowing The Door Panel To Be Severed, Removing Its Structural Integrity. The Article I Read Stated That ford Has Found That Welding The Door Does Not Correct The Problem. The Correction Can Only Be Made By Replacing The Door. As These Cracks Have Developed And Continue To Develop On ford F150 Trucks After 36,000 Miles, How Are They Being Repaired? My Guess Would Be That If They Are Being Repaired In Any Manner, They Are Most Likely Being Welded Together And Repainted, Which ford Has Found To Be A Insufficient Repair. The Only “repair” Is To Replace The Entire Door, Which Would Be Costly For The Consumer. This Problem Will Most Likely Only Get Worse As Time Goes On. ford Is Not Taking Responsibility For Their Defects, As This Clearly Is A Manufacturers Defect. I Asked The Nhtsa To Look At This Matter More Closely To Understand The Potential Impact Of The Crack That Develops Over Time On The ford F150 Truck Doors. *nlm
