Ford Orders Ranger Safety Recall Due To Bad Frames, Possibility Of Fuel Fed Fires


07 July 2004

Ford Motor Company will announce a safety recall for 2004 model year Rangers built at the Twin Cities, MN. assembly plant due to defective frames. According to a Ford memo, the frames on both short and long wheel base regular cab models have center rail sections flanges that were not made correctly. In the memo, Ford said, "An improperly formed center rail section could potentially puncture the fuel tank, resulting in a fuel leak." The leak could result in a fire.

Ford will tell their dealers not to drive, demonstrate or deliver any Ford Ranger involved in the safety recall. The selling dealer will also be asked to contact affected owners and schedule an inspection date. Ford will also begin to notify consumers the week of 12 July 2004.

The Special Service Support Center can be reached at 1-800-325-5621.

This was posted a while back, around July 1st... I was told that the only trucks that need to worry about it is the Regular cabs built in the twin cities plant during the month of January...
