Ford F-150

Recall. I received a recall notice that the metal straps that hold the gas tank in place were faulty and needed to be replaced. The fixed it and I was happy.

No, it only took 30 minuets including an oil change.

I have a 2000 Regular Cab, V8, 5 speed manual, 4X4. I haven't seen any recall on it. I wonder if it applies to ALL 2000's.

I believe the recall only applies to certain states, i.e. rust-belt.

(I have a 2000 V6 extended cab 5 speed).

I would think that it would. I'll check the recall paper when I get home and let you know.

The recall notice didn't say anything about other model years. I would call them and see.
