Standard Ford Headaches
By red-truck on


1999 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


My truck generates the standard Ford
problems annually. The 'hem' seam on
all four doors developed rust (which
Ford refused to fix as the rust did not
perforate the metal), phantom
windshield wipers (unfixed), coil pack
failure (1) and air conditioner
refrigerant leaks requiring annual
recharge and also the famous Ford door
crack above the intersection of the
front and rear door on both sides.

The irritation is that these problems
are all reported but Ford refused to
address the problems until (reportedly
and time will tell) the 2004 redesign.
How does one say "Cash Cow".

Best Features

Interior comfort; acceptable ride; electronic 4WD shift.

Worst Features

Manufacturer responding to customer 'quality' issues would be a refreshing change for Ford. Ford customer service is signficantly worse than that for my European sedan (both with similar MSRPs).
