2004 Ford F-150 Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on July 29, 2011

Vehicles sold or currently registered in states using corrosive chemicals to de-ice the roads may have fuel tank straps that can rust prematurely and fail. If the fuel tank were to shift as a result of a broken strap, a fuel leak could develop, increasing the risk of a fire.

This should be considered a high priority recall. One or both fuel tank straps could fail without warning. Please contact your Ford or Lincoln dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
