I know cars and trucks have spontaneously combusted since the beginning of the automobile, but man, I dread the day when all we can get are trucks with high pressure fuel pumps, turbos, high pressure oil pumps, UREA injection, etc....all that stuff will break and I'm sure the parts are big money. Crap won't be affordable to keep on the road.

This is what I'm guessing 30-50 or so psi into the high pressure and up to 2,000 or so psi out either over tighten the fitting and damage it or maybe it didn't get tightened enough. I've worked on quite a few of the 3.5L eco boost trucks and as a whole they've been decent (seen a few with over 200,000 miles) but I'm still a 5.0L fan to keep it simple.

My brother totaled a truck that was only in his possession for about six weeks. Insurance only paid what the truck was worth. Depreciation was a bitch. He was financed through a bank, waved the GAP insurance, and had to pay the difference between the settlement and the balance. I think that cost him seven grand.

Nope. Body shops are not making a fortune repairing these trucks. We've fixed a handful of these aluminum bodied trucks now, and we've lost money on most of them. Insurance companies haven't caught up to the fact that aluminum doesn't behave like steel, and traditional repair methods don't apply. The aluminum stretches way easier, and our nail guns for pulling dents don't work. We are just now starting to get the OK to replace panels instead of repair. Replacement is cheaper than repair unless it's minor damage that you can just fill.

So the Eco-turd is EXACTLY what all us EX-Ford owners thought it was.

Thank goodness for insurance, and I'm glad your dad wasn't in it when it went cherries jubilee.

I would contact a lawyer before getting my insurance company involved.
You pay your insurance company to employ lawyers. Why would you waste a dime getting your own?

I bet there will be results in a hurry. Hell, phone the local news outlets, they eat this shit up, especially if you can cry for the camera and tell a story about how you need the truck to hand out blankets to homeless Indians.
Let me explain this in another way. If you get sued you would go and retain a lawyer in your behalf. You do this so that you have someone that has your best interest in mind to keep you from getting fucked and sitting on your own dick for a month while the other parties decides how to get out of this for the cheapest way possible.

That is exactly why you have comprehensive insurance on your shit. It provides you with an attorney, it provides you with a staff of people that do nothing but automotive insurance shit all day long that have nothing but your best I treet in mind. It is part of what you are paying for. They go to work for you. They get you the best deal.

Those that disagree with me need to go read their policy and have a good long talk with their insurance agent. Because you know fuck all about the insurance you purchased and what it does for you. Jesus, educate your self.

And indirectly/directly raise your and everyone who holds that insurance premiums.... I guess in this day n' age of SEP (someone else's problem) people are just conditioned for that....

There are plenty of lawyers that will "work for free" unless they recover something. I'd think in this case especially; plenty of young/fresh outta law school "go get 'um" types would be more than happy to pursue the case to make a name for themselves, if on the off chance they succeed... At the very least a lucrative settlement would probably easily pay the lawyer, buy you 5 trucks of your choosing, and not fuck over the insurance company.... or you could just wait for Flo's 1/2-3/4 valuation settlement and be happy with that?


Funny, seems the OP is long gone, unless I missed something.....

edit: sorry, typo city on laptop keyb'd....

Heh... I get it.

Call Flo, get 70% of the value of your truck. For something you had no part in.

DONE!!


Obviously, that is what most people will do.

Leaving a vehicle at a shop should be covered under "bailment" rules. otherwords,the shop has to take reasonable care not to damage the vehicle...It was damaged while in the shop's care, they pay..........

I don't typically carry comprehensive and do not see it as my normal course of action. Also the vehicle I carry comprehensive on has a $2500 deductible, which is not guaranteed to be waived or reimbursed regardless of circumstances (I have read my policy), so that route would be taken only with apprehension and after exploring other options. Hence I'd just threaten legal action, go to the media, and it would probably be taken care of quickly enough. Like I said, the shop carries professional insurance for this, and while they might wish to enter a long drawn out legal battle with you, the reality is that their lawyers will instantly realize that it's not a case they want to gamble on and offer to settle. New truck, pay my lawyer, done, fuck you very much. Make sure the new truck isn't a EcoBoom (or no Blue Oval crap) and happily ever after.

But yes, if you have comprehensive, and your policy does not have exclusions for this, or other fine print that might cause a less than ideal outcome, involving them may be helpful or the best course of action. As you said, read your policy. I've read mine, so don't make assumptions of what is in it.
