Over One Million Ford Pickup Trucks Recalled
Ford Motor Co. recently announced they are conducting a recall of 1.1 million pickup trucks. The recall is due to unstable straps that are supposed to secure gas tanks. The defective straps have led to eight fires. Sadly, one individual experienced first and second degree burns as a result of the faulty part on a Ford pickup truck.
