Well, I had a twenty minute phone call with a Ford regional warr. manager yesterday. My numerous phone calls and emails to Ford must be having some effect, because he called me.
He said to me that he was not aware of this being a known issue, so when I told him that it WAS a known issue in the bodyshop business, He wanted to know who had been saying this.
He then asked me to send him a detailed email as to who , and what they have been telling me. I supplied him with as much info. from my truck file as possible. Along with the records back starting from Dec. 23Th /011, when I first reported the bubbleing paint issue to my local dealer, along with them sending the first set of digital pictures to Ford. (3 sets in total now, and the rust is getting worse).
He started talking about Ford's policy of rust perf. ,and about the yr. and milage on my truck, to which I told him that IMHO that their policy was silly, and that most of the Ford people that I talk to tend to agree with me on the QT re. the rust holes needing to be present, when it was apparent that the corrosion can from the inside out.
Also, that all of that didn't come into play ,when my truck has had this issue right from the day that it left the factory in Kansas in /06, and had nothing to do with who has owned it, the yr. , the milage, or my amount of over maint . that has been done.
I asked him why would I be interested in purchasing another newer F-150, when this issue still on going on their current trucks?
Press on regardless!
