In case you haven’t already heard this from other sources, Ford expanded their recall of F150s to include over 1.2 million trucks manufactured between 2003 and 2006 due to an electrical problem that “could lead to the airbag deploying.” As reported in the Detroit News, Detroit Free Press, and pretty much everywhere else, it seems that the problem stems from a faulty part in the airbag system. We won’t get into the finger pointing and mess surrounding the recall and its expansion (which you’re welcome to read about elsewhere), but suffice it to say that if you own a 2003 or later F150, you might want to check to see if your truck is affected. If so, Ford has told other sources they’d fix the problem for free in about half a day.

(Thanks, MCS@Flickr, for the great CC-licensed pic of your 2003 F150. Awesome dog, btw. Looks like a good friend.)

    whew, mine’s a 1975. Don’t have to worry about air bags.. just steering, wheels falling off, brakes going out.. what else has it done..

    Sure makes floor mat problems with Toyo’s seem trivial by comparison.

    My dad’s ’79 has a similar floormat problem.

    Without them, you see the highway below.
