Just took my 2001 Screw into the dealers yesterday (09-20) to have a final look at my truck before the warranty is out in Oct. Of special interest to me was the letter I got from Ford regarding the tie rod ends. I was told that the tie rod ends are suseptible to rusting issues - but in this climate faulty tie rod ends are rare (as is rust). Under warranty they would have replaced them for free. I have a really good dealership and service rep. at Phil Long Ford in Lakewood/Littleton, CO. When you have to pay they are pricey but their work is the best! I am about to turn 31,500 miles and I like this truck just as well as the first day I owned it.
