2004 Ford F 150 Front Three Quarter
A New Jersey-based landscaping company is suing Ford for allegedly hiding a fuel tank defect from consumers for a decade. Automotive News reports that Coba Landscaping and Construction Inc has accused Ford of knowingly selling vehicles with defective fuel tanks, and actively working to hide the issues from customers. The lawsuit concerns the fuel tanks in the 1998-2008 Ford F-Series pickup trucks and E-Series (a.k.a. Econoline) vans. It asserts that over time, the internal fuel tank lining would separate and "flake off." Those flakes could clog the vehicles' fuel systems with metal flakes or rust, causing the engine to lose power or stall. The suit further alleges that Ford issued a technical service bulletin on the problem to dealers in 2007 -- but that notice was reportedly "secret" and never shared with customers. The fuel tank failure could have affected "hundreds, if not thousands" of vehicle owners across the country. A Ford spokeswoman told us today that she couldn't comment on the lawsuit. The suit was only filed yesterday, and Ford has not yet been served with the complaint. The company says it would be "premature" to comment on the lawsuit before it has reviewed the legal document. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has previously investigated the 1997-2001 Ford F-150 pickup truck over a different issue, where rusting gas tank straps could give way and allow the tank to fall from the vehicle and leak fuel. By May 2011, that investigation covered 2.7 million vehicles. Then in August 2011, Ford recalled the 1997-2004 F-150, 1997-1999 F-250, and 2002-2003 Lincoln Blackwood trucks for that issue.

Tuesday: Aston Martin's new U.S. vice president and general manager, Julian Jenkins, sent us the heartbreakingly beautiful DBS as the kind of gesture of magnanimity to which I can totally relate. I called dibs. If you have the money (for fuel, of course, although it beats the Foose F-150 with 11 city/17 highway mpg), buy this car. You will dress better just to honor the unbearably exquisite interior, trimmed in the finest suede, carbon fiber, stitched leather, and billet aluminum. I would like the people who hand-assembled it to know that I even wore makeup.

It's a sad day for pickup truck drivers in Texas. A neighborhood outside Dallas has banned most pickup trucks from being parked on driveways. Only owners of Lincoln Mark LTs, Honda Ridgelines, Chevrolet Avalanches, and Cadillac Escalade trucks can park in plain sight in the Frisco, Texas subdivision.
