Good Day, My 2000 ford F150 Pickup Truck Is Involved In The Gas Tank Straps Recall. Because The Straps Broke It Caused Excessive Vibration From The Tank That Also Damaged The Tank; Now ford Has Fixed The Straps But Now They Want $1600 To Fix The Tank Which Broke Because Of The Damage Straps Originally. I Have Never Had A Vehicle With Such A Severe Rust Problem. I Think This Vehicle Should Have A fuel Tank Recall Also. The fuel Line All Got Rusted And Broke On Me; I Had To Change Out All The Lines. Now The Gas Tank And Straps Are All Rusted Out. Thanks, *js
