Safety incident date:

Location:
Willowbrook, IL

purchased used vehicle 01/99 from ford dealership. within weeks of purchase, heard rattling from rear hatch. upon inspection, discovered lift bracket pulling away from liftgate. researched and found safety campaign #95i007000, however, ford apparently only covered repairs through 60k miles. (the vehicle had more than 60k miles when i bought it.) this is a potentially serious safety hazard, and i find it very disturbing that the ford dealership did not check into this safety issue and repair it prior to re-selling the vehicle, nor did they make mention of the potential issue when they sold me the vehicle. this might have developed into a very dangerous situation with personal injury had i not noticed the defect myself. additionally, the cost to make this repair is estimated around $200. ford should be required to disclose this type of information upon re-sale of a vehicle if they decline responsibility for correcting the problem after 60k miles. what significance does 60k miles have in a situation like this? is ford saying that if the bracket fails after 60k miles, that would be normal wear & tear and not a mfg. defect? if this is the message they are sending where customers' personal safety is at stake, and they consider 60,000 miles an appropriate time to consider a safety defect the vehicle owner's responsibility - i doubt that i will purchase another ford product.
