Failure Date: 06/01/2009

In 2009 the brackets connected to the frame that held up gas tank deteriorated and needed to be repaired to prevent the tank from falling off the truck. Soon after that repair work was done to leaf spring brackets which had rusted off the frame. In 2010,the truck was taken in for annual inspection, it could not pass because the frame was too rusted and likely to break at any time, this truck has always had all maintenance needed when scheduled and from the exterior, it looks like it is in excellent condition, but considered to be unsafe to drive and be on the roads.

Was driving on interstate 65, mm 95 approximately 75 mph, when the steering went completely out. Lost total control of vehicle. Local Ford dealership stated that the steering shaft had come off sector shaft. I am concerned that this could happen to someone else. I was able to control vehicle until I came to stop on median. Steering wheel spun freely in either direction. Could have easily been a fatal wreck if this happened on a curve or other vehicles close by.

When I was driving with my son in the car, I lost all steering in my vehicle. My steering wheel just started to spin freely as I was drifting into oncoming traffic. After frantically stopping the vehicle, I had it towed back to my local mechanic. After he inspected the steering column, he discovered that the coupling between the lower end of the steering column and steering box had stripped free. The bolt still remained in the coupler. He checked with Ford and they told him there has been no recall on the lower end of the steering columns (which he was surprised at), but there had been a service bulletin.
