Was Going To ford Dealer For Gas Tank Strap Recall Due To Straps That Have Poor Corrosion Protection. As I Was Enroute To Dealer I Applied My Brakes Due To A Car Running A Stop Sign And My Brakes Gave Way And I Just Missed A Serious Accident. I Checked My Brake Line Where The Leak Was And Due To Very Poor Rust The Line Blow Out. I Ask The Dealer When Performing The Recall Repair Could He Fix The Line And Was Stated A 600.00 Charge. While At The Dealer I Called ford Vp Of Customer Service Fred Toney Who Then Sent Me To Mr. Fedders. I Talked To A Person From His Office And Told Them That ford Has A Big Problem On Brake Lines Rusting And Because Of That I Just Missed Having A Serious Accident. I Ask ford To Fix The Linings At No Charge And Take The Line For Observation. I Was Told That Since The Truck Is 10 Years Old And Has 200,000miles On It They Will Not Do Anything. I Stated That ford Has No Problem Repairing The Gas Straps Of A 10 Year Old Truck. Anyway Had My Truck Towed To My Mechanic And Repaired. They Replaced The Front Lines And Intermediate Brake Lines Due To Poor Corrosion. I Was Told My Passenger Side Line And Both Rear Lines Are In Great Shape, No Rust And Coated. I Told ford About This And Said I Want A ford Rep To Inspect My Coated Brake Lines. And My Defected Line Which I Kept For Proof. I Ask ford Why Some Line Were Coated And Some Were Not. I Was Told That ford Does Not Coat The Lines. We Have A Serious Problem Here And Could Result In Many Deaths. If The Other Lines Were Coated I Would Have Not Had This Problem. ford Just Wrote This Whole Thing Off. I Expect Nhtsa To Get Back To Me As Soon As Possible. I Expect My Truck To Be Inspected And The Line That I Have Kept To Be Inspected. I Am Now Notifying Nhtsa And ford Has Been Notified About This Problem And Is On Record In The Event Nothing Is Done And People Get Killed The Parties Will Have A Problem. *kb
