#1 Solve multiple problems at once. Put trackers on the defective F-150s, then put them on a ship off the coast of Somalia, let the Pirates steal them, track them from a nearby Q-Ship which will call in ArcLight strikes.

#3 Calling Commodore Frank.
Calling Commodore Frank.
Check your steering wheel wiring in your F-150.
That is all.

#4 In the meantime the MSM & Obama admin should go after toyota to take the heat off their union buddies at Ford...I guess the Mazda news thing helps...

#5 were produced between November 2004 and June 2005

It's 2011. I assume the trucks need to go to the nearest Ford dealership, where the guys in the shop will take ten minutes to fix the problem. It's like when Toyota did something about the floormats -- I think they replaced them or something, also a ten minute job.

No, you're not of such a recent vintage, Frank G. Wasn't it 1961 when you were manufactured? ;-)

#9 There are F-150s in Alaska, so clearly Gov. Palin is responsible. Or Bush, could be his fault as well.

#10 That'll teach FORD for saying they were confused with an Italian sportscar.

#11 F-150? Pfeh. My 13 yr old V8 Dakota has a bigger payload capacity. (Check it out if you don't believe me.)

F-250 and up - now you're talking truck.
