I strongly feel that the frame and cross members rust and rot issues of the 2001 Ford F150's needs to be addressed. This is a major safety issue. I am really upset and with my 2001 F150 frame and other underbody parts. A frame that is 11 years old should not be so rusted out. I have done some research on the internet and have seen alot of issues of other owners with this complaint. I have had older trucks and cars and have never seen a frame in this kind of rust and rot condition at all. I would like to know what can be done with this issue before someone's 2001 Ford F150 literally breaks in half while driving down the interstate/highway or even in a school zone. I strongly feel that the last component to fall apart on any vehicle or to be a safety issue is the frame. Trucks are meant to pull campers and trailers which are heavy loads and the last thing you want to have happen is the frame on that vehicle to break away and kill the driver or other drivers on the road. I feel that it take someone to die before any action is taken on vehicle safety issues, thus im trying to prevent. I am willing to take my 2001 F150 to be inspected on this issue to a NHTSA site or a member can come to me. Please help with this Ford F150 issue and create a recall before its to late and someone is seriously injured or killed. Please respond back to me as soon as possible. Thanks
