This May Be A Moot Point Because The Truck (2001f-150 Supercrew Xlt 4wd) I Had Owned (traded It In For A 2003 ford Supercrew Which Also Exhibits Very Similar Problems) Had Serious Problems With The Steering In Addition To The Driver Seatbelt Becoming Disengaged While Driving Normally. I Could Not Understand Why The Seatbelt Would Disengage All By Itself. I Even Had Witnesses To The Fact. I Asked For The Service To Address It; However, They Could Not Duplicate The Problem. This Is Serious As What Are Seatbelts For In The First Place. Also Had Some Problems With The Paint Cracking Or Spidering. ford Regional Personnel From Denver Wanted To Repaint The Vehicle. However, They Could Not Determine How It Would Be Accomplished. This Went On For Over 4 Months. That Is One Of The Main Reasons In Addition To The Steering Problems Described Previously I Had Get Rid Of The Problem Supercrew I Had Purchased. *la Rq04011.*pco Owner Granted Permission To Release Info_*pco

I Have A 2001ford F150 Regular Cab Long Bed With 75,000 Miles. While Driving At Approximately 40 Mph The Right Inner Tie Rod Broke Causing The Vehicle To Shudder Significantly Until I Was Able To Stop The Vehicle. This Brief Shuddering Caused The Rear Fuel Tank Strap To Snap In Half Primarily Due To Excessive Corrosion Of The Strap. Loss Of The Supporting Strap Caused The Rear Of The Tank To Drop Almost To Ground Level Which Also Broke The Filler Inlet Off Of The Top Of The Tank, Completely Disconnecting The Filler Tube And Presenting A Large Hole For Fuel To Escape. Both Of These Failures Are Not What I Would Expect From A Vehicle With Only 75,000 Miles On The Odometer. Either Could Have Resulted In Serious Injury Or Property Damage. *tr

The Truck Was Parked In My Driveway For At Least 24 Hours Without Being Used Or Turned On. The Front Of The Truck Suddenly Went On Fire. The Fire Department Came And Put It Out.
