The 2000 Ford F-150 4-DR cab ...
4 Star for Front Crash, 5 for Side Crash, in Government Tests,
The 2001 Ford F-150 4-DR cab. got a
Poor in IIHS Side impact test. Also to note that the Bumper test by IIHS gives the F-150 a Poor.
The IIHS has not tested the 4-DR cab for 2001 yet, but they plan to according to their site.
Tired and mixed up yet??
But anyway, Its Clear this is a disappointment to ford, lovers and owners of the F-150. But really there is no question that this truck should have and could have done better. After all its 2001 and Ford has been around for a very long time and should have this crash thing down by now. Really something this big should do better than that. And really there is no question why this truck cannot do well in all types of crashes. After all allot of people buy these trucks because they feel safe, but apparently it's not true in some cases. I know of an accident where a person was killed in a 2000 f-150, I have posted the story in another news group. Lets hope ford fixes the problem fast.
by the way here are the web addresses to the gov. sites.
