Ford Sued for Alleged Fuel Tank Defect
Suit claims automaker knew of problems with F-Series, E-Series fuel tanks and told dealers, but not customers.
Lawyers for the plaintiff, New Jersey-based Coba Landscaping and Construction Inc., are seeking class-action status for the suit, saying that "hundreds if not thousands" of E- and F-Series vehicle owners had experienced the problem. The suit also claims Ford knew about the problem, sending dealers a "secret technical-service bulletin" warning them of the issue while keeping the alleged defect hidden from customers.
A Ford representative declined to comment to Automotive News, noting that the automaker had yet to be served with notice of the suit.
The Ford F-Series is the best-selling truck in the U.S.
I think he was just trying to point out your inconsistency. You criticized someone for being off topic earlier, but then you commented off topic below.
Read the post before mine. Better yet, stop reading my posts since you hate everything that I write. Why would you want to? Weird.
I made money off from my Ford stock for quite awhile, even though I would never buy their products after being given four brand new trucks over a ten year period. Each had numerous problems in it's less than 100,000 miles. Two of them ate fuel pumps like candy, now we know why. Do you think Ford might be interested in why they are going through so many pumps? Hell no, just keep charging us to put them in.
