Ford Motor Complaint - Transmission problems 2003 F-150
FORT WALTON BEACH, FLORIDA -- My husband pulled into a beach parking lot, that was covered in a thin layer of sand. Thinking he pulled in too far, he tried to back up so as not to get stuck. When he put it in reverse, the wheels just spun and he realized that he was stuck. So he got out removed the sand from under the tires, and preceded to pull forward and back, to get some traction. On the third try in reverse, his air bags blew, and his reverse gear blew. Took it to the dealer, it still had Manufacter's warrenty. They said that they would not repair airbags, because the sensor indicated an impact. And that the Transmission has a hole in it, which caused the gear failure. So Ford will not cover any of the repairs to the truck. It has only 14,000 miles on it and has been babied. What bothers us the most, is they are relying the airbag sensor, when there was no impact and no visible body damage. My husband was shocked when they imploded, because he didn't hit anything. But as you all know Ford won't pay.
Ford tough, I think NOT!!!
