problem #1

Mar 272003

E-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,371 miles
With only 43,000 miles, and 21 months old, I had to replace outer tie rod, drag link, and ball joints on our 2001 Ford E-150 van. The vehicle has only been used as a private vehicle. Maintenance has been per Ford schedule, and performed by the same Ford dealership which did the state inspection which lead to the part replacements. While Ford did contribute about 40% towards the work, it seems suspension and steering parts wearing out so prematurely is a defect which should be concidered for recall. Pursuing further with Ford only resulted in phone call claiming that the wear rate was not unusual.
