Womens Animal 27738 Animal High Platform Wedge Shoes Punk Style Womens Creepers Boots Shoes Girls bc403b9 - team-awakening.com

 

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 48,000 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty pickup trucks with the 6.2-liter gas V-8 engine built at the Kentucky Truck Plant from Oct. 9, 2015, to March 30, 2017 

The Problem: A damaged parking rod actuating plate in affected vehicles might not fully engage in Park within the automatic transmission, even though it appears to be in Park to the driver. If the parking brake is not applied, the vehicle could move unexpectedly, increasing the risk of injury. Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries associated with the issue.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect and replace the park rod actuating plate for free. 

What Owners Should Do: Ford did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 866-436-7332 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

Problem detection

In May 2000, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) contacted Ford and Firestone about the high incidence of tire failure on Ford Explorers, Mercury Mountaineers, and Mazda Navajos fitted with Firestone tires. Ford investigated and found that several models of 15-inch Firestone tires (ATX, ATX II, and Wilderness AT) had very high failure rates, especially those made at Firestone's Decatur, Illinois plant. This was one of the leading factors to the closing of the Decatur plant.[1]

Joan Claybrook, who was the president of the public advocacy group Public Citizen and previously an Administrator of the NHTSA, stated before the Transportation Subcommittee United States Senate Committee on Appropriations on September 6, 2000, that, "there was a documented coverup by Ford and Firestone of the 500 defect".[2] This refers to the 1970s debacle that had already tarnished Firestone's reputation.[3] Also Clarence Ditlow; Executive Director for the Centre for Auto Safety in his statement before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation in Washington D.C., September 20, 2000[4] stated "Emerging Information shows that both Ford and Firestone had early knowledge of tread separation in Firestone Tires fitted to Ford Explorer vehicles but at no point informed the NHTSA of their findings". [5]
Possible causes

The Ford Explorer was first offered for sale in March 1990.[6] Ford internal documents show the company engineers recommended changes to the vehicle design after it rolled over in company tests prior to introduction, but other than a few minor changes, the suspension and track width were not changed.[7] Instead, Ford, which sets the specifications for the manufacture of its tires, decided to remove air from the tires, lowering the recommended pressure to 26 psi.[7] Low air pressure leads to increased heat; heat can damage the tire.[8]

The failures all involved tread separation[9][10]—the tread peeling off followed often by tire disintegration.[11] Tread separation, due to the interaction of steel and rubber tire elements, has been a challenge in radial tire design since their development by Michelin in 1946. In 1968, Michelin proposed a nylon cap over the steel elements to counteract this, and Firestone adopted this nylon cap design in 2000, following investigation by the United States Congress.[12]

If tread separation happened, and the vehicle was running at speed, there was a possibility of the sport utility vehicle (SUV), with its high center of gravity between 68 and 74 cm,[13] of rolling over.[14][15] Over 240 deaths resulted from these failures.[7] Not every single death occurred in the Ford Explorer/Firestone tire combination.[16] It is estimated that 3,000 catastrophic injuries also resulted from this issue.[16]

Some outside observers have speculated about the blame worthiness of both parties;[17] Firestone's tires being prone to tread separation and failure, and the SUVs being especially prone to rolling over if a tire fails at speed compared to other vehicles.[18] A subsequent NHTSA investigation of real world accident data showed that the SUVs in question were no more likely to roll over than any other SUV, after a tread separation.[19]
Recall

A product recall was announced, allowing Explorer owners (and owners of its stablemates) to change the affected tires for others. Many of the recalled tires had been manufactured during a period of strike at Firestone.[20] A large number of lawsuits[citation needed] have been filed against both Ford and Firestone, some unsuccessful, some settled out of court, and a few successful.[citation needed] Lawyers for the plaintiffs have argued that both Ford and Firestone knew of the dangers but did nothing, and that specifically Ford knew that the Explorer was highly prone to rollovers. Ford denies these allegations.

Firestone ultimately recalled millions of tires including 2.8 million Firestone Wilderness AT tires.[21] According to Firestone's last filing with the National Highway Transportation Administration, only 90,259 of those tires were confirmed as removed from service.[21] In November 2013, two recalled Wilderness AT tires were found in Atlanta, Georgia.[22] One of the tires was offered for sale as new at a used tire retail shop.[22]

Following the recall, lawsuits were filed throughout the country. It was estimated that there had been over 250 deaths and 3,000 serious injuries.

The way Ford has handled this recall is disgusting.

I ordered a truck, which finally made it to my dealer after two weeks of delivery delays, only to find out that it is subject to this transmission recall.

After a week of no information on when this recall might be remedied, I find out yesterday that Ford will not have a fix until May 8...2017 (I am guessing here).

No word from Ford, no clarification or apology, nothing.

It is no wonder Ford is lagging in sales and I would not advise anyone to buy a Ford F-series truck...I am sorry I did!!
