THROTTLE WAS COMPLETELY LOST. TRUCK WOULD ONLY RUN AROUND 5 MPH MAXIMUM. WOULD NOT TAKE THROTTLE AT ALL. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS CONDITION WHEN IN A HIGH TRAFFIC AND MULTI LANE SETTING WHERE ALL THE OTHER VEHICLES ARE RUNNING AT HIGH SPEEDS. IT IS ALSO VERY DANGEROUS WHEN PULLING A 7000 LB TRAILER WITH NO OR EXTREMELY LIMITED PULL OFFS FOR EMERGENCIES SUCH AS THIS. IT CREATES A VERY REAL POSSIBILITY OF DEATH. THIS OCCURRED ON A LOCAL ROAD IN FITZGERALD, GA TRAVELING STRAIGHT WITH LIGHT TRAFFIC CONDITIONS FORTUNATELY. I DROVE THE TRUCK IN TO FITZGERALD FORD FROM ABOUT 3 TO 4 MILES AWAY AT THE ABOVE MENTIONED SPEED. THE DEALERSHIP DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AS A FAULTY THROTTLE BODY, AND IT WAS REPLACED AT A COST TO ME OF $248.12. MY WIFE'S CAR ALSO HAD THIS PROBLEM WITH THE EXACT SAME PART. IT WAS REPLACED BY THE SAME DEALERSHIP AND PAID FOR BY US. MY WIFE [XXX] SUBSEQUENTLY RECEIVED CORRESPONDENCE FROM FORD THAT INDICATED THE THROTTLE BODY WARRANTY HAD BEEN EXTENDED, AND THAT COST THAT WE PREVIOUSLY PAID WAS REFUNDED TO US. HER CAR WHICH WE STILL OWN IS A 2010 FORD FUSION SEL. THE VIN IS [XXX]. THE INCIDENT WITH MY TRUCK OCCURRED YESTERDAY, JUNE 24, 2016. THE DIAGNOSIS, REPAIR AND PAYMENT FOR THE REPAIR ALSO TOOK PLACE YESTERDAY. IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE EXTENSION OF THE CAR THROTTLE BODY WARRANTY AND THE TRUCK? INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
