Tuesday July 25 by Claudia bourneAuto.com Daily News
A federal safety agency on Monday upgraded its investigation of nearly 250,000 Ford Motor Co. trucks after hundreds of drivers cited problems with braking and steering. There have been 233 complaints and 310 warranty claims involving 1999 and 2000 model Ford Super Duty F Series and Stripped Chassis with Hydroboost trucks, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Some drivers reported losing the power assistance in steering or braking, making the trucks harder to handle. The problem has been cited in 13 crashes in which one person died and four were hurt, according to NHTSA.
