MY WIFE HAD TO MOVE MY TRUCK SO THE KIDS HAD MORE ROOM TO PLAY IN THE DRIVEWAY. NO BIG DEAL, RIGHT? WRONG. SHE STARTS TO BACK DOWN THE DRIVEWAY (WHICH HAS A MODERATE GRADE) AND I NOTICE A LOOK OF PANIC ON HER FACE, COUPLED WITH THE FACT THAT THE TRUCK WASN'T STOPPING, I COULD SEE SOMETHING WAS WRONG. SHE FINALLY GOT IT STOPPED RIGHT BEFORE GOING OUT ONTO THE ROAD. SHE JUMPED OUT AND SAID, "YOUR BRAKES WOULDN'T WORK. I WAS PRESSING AS HARD AS I COULD AND IT WOULDN'T STOP." I GOT IN THE TRUCK AND CAREFULLY TRIED TO DUPLICATE THE SITUATION, AND SURE ENOUGH, MORE OFTEN THAN NOT IT HAD A HARD TIME STOPPING. I DID SOME RESEARCH AND FOUND THERE ARE PLENTY OF CASES LIKE THIS. SOME PEOPLE ACTUALLY CRASHED THEIR VEHICLE. THIS SEEMS TO BE A REALLY DANGEROUS PROBLEM THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED BY FORD. AND I WILL NOTE THIS IS NOT THE FIRST DANGEROUS PROBLEM I'VE HAD WITH THIS TRUCK. I'M SURE FORD WILL TELL ME THEY CAN'T HELP ME, LEAVING ME TO FOOT THE BILL FOR A PROBLEM THAT SEEMS TO BE RATHER COMMON, AND SHOULD BE ADDRESSED BY THEM. JUST LIKE THEY DID TO ME BEFORE.
