While turning off major thorough-fare, tie-rod separated from the wheel causing loss of control. Truck skidded to a stop. I was fortunate it occurred in a parking lot and not into on-coming traffic. This is the 2nd rod to break on the F-150 in the past 18 months.

When a bump or pothole was hit in the road, the vehicle did not steer smooth. The dealer inspected vehicle several times and could not duplicate or correct the problem. Ph. the consumer also stated the vehicle drifted to the left if the steering wheel was relaxed at anytime. Tires and wheels were installed, however there was no change.
