Did a search, didn't find anything, so - recently we received a safety notification from Ford advising us to check the valve stems on our '07 vehicles. Seems they're developing cracks, allowing the air to leak out. Some info. Happened on my '07 Expedition. \:\(

The infamous Chinese valve stems !!!
If they can't get us with lead in kids' toys, they'll do it with melamine or defective drywall; whoever is left will get wiped out by faulty valve stems... \:\(

I had to replace 2 of mine so far on my 07 F150. Which resulted in flat tires....The last one happened while driving.

I don't think it is a Ford issue. I've had to replace 2 valve stems since getting new tires.
+1 it is an issue with lousy valve stems. It can happen to any car that used the bad valve stems. AD

The commonly available valve cores for Schrader valves are also of bad quality. Ever since I replaced the valve cores on all my car and bike tires with a good brand, I have had to add more air much less often.
