Well this isn't nearly as bad as the recent Dodge Ram recall over bad tie rods.

I don't think my truck is affected by this recall. It hasn't shown up on my Ford Owners page but I will keep checking it just in case.

I just checked Ford Owners and it says there is no recall on my New 2011 Sport. No doubt there is a recall though, but I thought my would be included since I bought it Early April. Makes me wonder how long it was sitting on the lot...

I just went to my Ford Owner Advantage site and saw that my vin number is one of the ones with the recall. I'll call them today to schedule an appt for next week, and let you what happens.

I have an appointment for next week, but they weren't aware of the recall yet.

My truck was built 2/11 according to the sticker inside the driver's side door.

It's amazing how a part made for 15 years is not perfected yet.
Different suppliers could be involved, and even suppliers can have a supplier.

Whatever happened to the recommendation to change at 600 to 1000 miles? Owners manuals used to stress how important that first oil/filter change was. My theory is that manufacturers are having to lower the carbon footprint of vehicles to meet EPA standards and an easy way to do that is LONGER intervals for oil changes.
I believe there is a lot of pressure on auto manufacturers these days. I got laughed at by both my Dad and an oil change place when I had the oil changed on my 06' at 300 miles.
