7/14/2011 – My Mechanic Replaced Rotting Gas Tank Straps 10/3/2011 – ford Dealer (after Receiving Recall Notice On Gas Tank Straps) Applied Reinforcement Straps On Gas Tank Straps. No Indication Given To Me That These Were Not Secured Onto Frame. 10/12/2011 – Brought My Truck Into My Mechanic For Oil Change. He Noticed That The Gas Tank Straps And Reinforcement Straps Were Not Connected Onto The Frame On Drivers Side Rear. 10/12/2011 – Brought Truck Back To ford Dealer To Fix The Safety Recall That Last Week They Had Applied. I Mean, It Is Hard To Believe That A Week Later, And The Straps Failed. Was Told That They Only Install The Gas Tank Straps And That’s It. Whether They Are Connected To Frame Or Not That Is Rusting Is Not Their Concern And Is Not Covered By The Recall. This Is Preposterous. Since The Same Metal Was Probably Used Throughout The Truck And Caused The Recall Of The Gas Tank Straps — A Safety Recall, Shouldn’t They Be Sure To Apply These To Known Good Structure And If Such Structure Suffers From The Same Problem As The Gas Tank Straps, Shouldn’t That Be Covered? I Really Think ford Should Stand Behind Its Products And Its Safety Recall Installations And Take Care Of The Frame That Holds These Rotting Gas Tank Straps. The Cause Of Failure Is The Same. Rusting Frame Is Same Rusting As The Gas Tank Straps. *kb
