Ford LIES!!!!! I have 2 things wrong with my F-150. Ford will give the same old speech that we can't fix it if it's not doing it when we have it! How do you know if it's doing it or not when they have it!!!! I actually had a mechanic tell me to take it to ford and I said, I did and they gave me the run around. I told him that ford had it for almost 2 months and they still told me they couldn't find it. It surges with me and my daughter drove it and she said, that it surged with her really bad and the entry level sensor isn't working either! They don't need to be selling them if they can't fix them. The attitude of Mr. Tilley at McCarty in Alabaster Alabama needs an ajustment!He is a very rude individual...

Do you drive a 2009 FORD F-150?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
