I Bought A New F150 Pickup From Korum ford And After A Week I Noticed An Excessive Amount Of Rust On The Under Carriage And Under The Hood Of The Vehicle, I Took It To The Service Manager To Look At And He Said It Was Normal, I Did Not Agree With Him And Took It To Two Other Dealers And I Was Told That A Brand New Vehicle Should Not Have That Much Rust On It And Said It Was Excessive. I Took The Truck Back To Korum And Told Them I Did Not Want The Vehicle For Safety Reasons And The Amount Of Rust That Was On This Vehicle. Korum Wants To Treat The Vehicle Like It Is A Used Vehicle And Make Me Pay More Money To Swap For A Vehicle With Less Options. I Believe The Amount Of Rust That Is On The Vehicle Now Will Prematurely Weaken The Vehicles Parts And I Will Not Get The Full Use Of The Vehicles Life With Out Taking More Money Out Of My Pocket. *ak

I Began Hearing A Squeal Coming From The Engine Compartment And On Stopping I Could Hear The Cooling Fan Hitting The Fan Cowling. I Thought The Squeal Was From One Of The Idler Pulleys On The Serpentine Belt, And Thought That Maybe The Fan Cowling Had Loosened. On My Way To The Repair Station, I Lost The Belt, It Came Completely Off. What Actually Happened Was The Radiator Support Had Completely Rusted And Disintegrated Causing The Front Portion Of The Engine Components To Fall Forward. I Had To Bring The Vehicle To A Body Shop Where They Had To Remove The Bumper, Front End, Both Fenders, And The Hood To Replace The Radiator Support. The Owner Of The Shop Knew Of This Problem When I Brought The Truck In And Stated That This Was A Common Problem With This Truck And That He Has Done Approximately 20 Of Them In The Past Year. $1400.00 Dollars Later My Truck Rides Much Better And Noise Free. I Thought That I Had Something Going On The Passenger Side Of The Truck, For It Would Bounce Terribly Over Bumps. I Thought Maybe A Bad Shock. Turns Out After This Repair, The Problem Is Gone. *tr

ford Has Issued A Recall For Defective Fuel Tank Straps That May Corrode And Cause A Potential Fuel Leak. I Brought My Truck In For The Recall And Sure Enough My Straps Are Corroded. The Vehicle Is At A ford Dealership And They Will Not Replace The Straps Because The Corroded Straps Have Started To Corrode The Tank. According To The Dealer The Tank Will Begin Leaking If They Replace The Straps. The Dealer Called ford Customer Care And They Would Not Cover The Tank. I Also Called ford And They Refused To Cover The Tank And Also Will Not Replace The Straps Unless I Purchase A Tank From Them To Replace. If My Straps Break I Will Lose My Tank And Potentially Cause A Fire Or Accident To Another Vehicle. The Recall Does Not Currently Address Additional Damage Caused By The Defective Straps. The Damage To My Tank Is A Direct Result Of The Defective Straps And Should Be Covered Under This Recall. I Leave In New England And Am Sure There Are Many Other ford Trucks With The Same Problem. What Recourse Do I Have To Get This Resolved? Spoke With [xxx], A Customer Service Supervisor At ford Customer Care In Florida, Case #[xxx]. Any Assistance Would Be Appreciated, Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr
