Window regulator on 2004 F 150 lariat drivers door broke allowing the window to drop scaring me so bad that I went off the road just missing crashing into several trees. It sounded like someone had shot out my window, while I was driving in a thunder storm. The roads were wet, but there was know warning when the windowbroke, then I was getting hit in the face with rain it felt like glass hitting me in the face. This should be a recall by Ford, I have research this problem and have found it to be massive in numbers with a big expense to Ford customers. This many cases seems more than just a fluke incident. This should be looked into, I'm so lucky to be here now I just missed those trees and my wife is now scared that it may happen to one of my other remaining windows and does not want to ride with me anymore..

The emission light came on. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, and consumer was told that fuel pump was defective. The gauge went out of control. After filling the tank, the gauge read empty. The brake light wiring was inoperative, alignment was out, the vehicle had stuck in park, the right passenger door was inoperative, the speedometer read wrong, and the vehicle would die out.
