Complaint - Seat Belts

THE DESIGN OF THE SHOULDER BELT IN THE REAR OUTBOARD SEATS ON THE 2009 FORD F150 SUPERCREW IS FLAWED. MY WIFE IS 5' 1" TALL AND THE SHOULDER BELT CUTS ACROSS HER NECK AT A POSITION THAT IF WE WERE IN AN ACCIDENT IT WOULD DEFINITELY INJURE HER NECK. THE BELT IS ANCHORED TOO HIGH ON THE SIDE PILLAR OF THE TRUCK TO ALLOW ANYONE LESS THAN ABOUT 5'4 TO SIT COMFORTABLY WITH IT ON. I HAVE DIGITAL PHOTOS OF MY WIFE SITTING THE REAR SEAT WITH THE SHOULDER BELT AS IT FITS ON HER. IF YOU WISH I WILL SEND THEM ON AS I SEE NO WAY TO ATTACH THE PHOTOS TO THIS FORM. IN TEXAS THE LAW NOW REQUIRES ALL RIDERS TO HAVE THE BELTS FASTENED. YET MY WIFE MUST PUT THE SHOULDER BELT BEHIND HER TO AVOID INJURY OR JUST FOR COMFORT SAKE.
