NUMEROUS PROBLEMS SOME OR ALL MAY BE RELATED TO A MISTAKE AT A FORD DEALERSHIP. THERE ARE NUMEROUS PHYSICAL PROBLEMS BUT THE TRUCK IS TOTALLY NON-DRIVABLE AS IT GENERATES A HORRIFIC SMELL INTO THE TRUCK THAT QUICKLY MAKES PEOPLE SICK, NAUSEATED, HEADACHES, BURNING EYES, NOSE, THROAT) . A CATALYTIC CONVERTER WAS REPLACED AND THREE DEALERSHIPS HAVE AGREED THE SMELL IS AT, NEAR, OR JUST ABOVE THE REPLACED CONVERTER. THEY AGREE THE SMELL IS THERE (IT WILL SET OFF A CARBON MONOXIDE TESTER INSIDE THE CAB) BUT NO NE WANTS TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND THEY DO NOT WANT TO GO TEST DRIVE THE UNIT. THE FIRST DEALERSHIP THAT CREATED NUMEROUS PHYSICAL PROBLEMS AND LED TO THE CRASH (TRUCK LOCKED UP AND WENT AIRBORNE TWICE HITTING VERY HARD ON THE CONCRETE) HAD A COMPANY CLEAN AND SANITIZE THE AIRLINES WHICH DID NOT HELP. THEY SAID THEY WOULD GET THE EPA TO DETERMINE THE NATURE AND DANGER OF THE SMELL BUT LATER WAS TOLD IT WOULD COST TOO MUCH FOR THEM TO GET THE EPA TO DO THE AIR QUALITY TEST. TOO MUCH???? WHEN AT LEAST 6 PEOPLE HAVE GOTTEN SICK FROM THE TRUCK. FORD MOTOR AGREED TO HAVE A DIFFERENT DEALERSHIP WORK ON THE TRUCK WITH A FORD ENGINEER BUT WHEN I TOOK IT THERE I WAS TOLD THEY WOULD NOT DO IT WITHOUT APPROVAL FIRST FROM FORD. I HAVE CALLED BACK TO FORD MOTOR THREE TIMES AND WAS PROMISED THIS WOULD BE RESOLVED THREE DAYS AGO, TWO DAYS AGO AND AGAIN TODAY I ONLY GOT AN ANSWERING MACHINE. I WAS PROMISED A CALL BACK ON WEDNESDAY WHICH NEVER HAPPENED. I TOLD A FORD REPRESENTATIVE I WAS PARKING THE TRUCK OR TRADING IT ON MY DOCTORS AND FAMILY'S REQUEST. I WAS TOLD THAT THERE COULD BE LEGAL IMPLICATIONS IF I TRADE IT. WHY? THEY ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT. FOR WHATEVER REASON, MALFUNCTION OR RELATED TO THE DEALERSHIPS MISTAKES, THIS TRUCK IS UNSAFE FOR ANYONE.
