I PURCHASED MY FORD F-150 NEW IN AUGUST 2010. I NOTICED IN SEPTEMBER 2013, MY FUEL FILLER DOOR WAS NOT CLOSING, AND AFTER FURTHER INSPECTION I NOTICED AN INNER MECHANISM, THAT ALLOWS THE DOOR TO REMAIN CLOSED, WAS BROKEN AND NO LONGER KEPT THE DOOR CLOSED. THIS PLASTIC DOOR COSTS APPROXIMATELY $75.00 TO REPLACE, SIGNIFICANTLY MORE IF THE DEALER INSTALLS IT. THE FRUSTRATING THING IS MY SON-IN-LAW, AS WELL AS MY BROTHER BOTH OWN LATE MODEL FORD F-150'S, AND BOTH HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. FORD (THROUGH THEIR DEALERSHIPS) HASN'T FELT THE NEED TO MAKE GOOD ON AN OBVIOUS WORKMANSHIP ISSUE, SO THE CONSUMER IS LEFT TO REPLACE THIS DOOR EVERY 3 YEARS OR SO. I SHOULD ALSO NOTE THAT HAVING THE DOOR COMPLETELY SECURE AND CLOSED IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP WATER AND OTHER DEBRIS OUT OF THE FUEL TANK, AS THE FUEL TANK ON THE LATE MODEL F-150'S DOES NOT HAVE A FUEL CAP. WE HAVEN'T HEARD OF ANY RECALLS, OR PLANS FOR ONE, BUT HOPEFULLY YOU'VE HEARD ENOUGH COMPLAINTS THAT SOMETHING CAN BE DONE. THANK YOU.
