Another one???
Death traps!!!!!!!

Jamie Martyna Boyd is this the one



Jamie what branch was that, also did you here about the FFV from plaza last year

So, another one bites the dust!

This is how it showed up in my news feed. LLV for sale, LLV on fire

That’s how mine showed up too! Isnt it ironic….dont you think….?

Mine too

What does this make….17…?….18?

I think its #18 that we’ve heard of. How many don’t we hear about?

That’s what I’m curious about too…..only time we hear about it is if someone took pictures or it ended up on the news. How many times has it happened in some podunk town that never got coverage?

Smh…rolling death traps…

Up to 20 now. I had a user report one in WA but there is no link or photos..

Late part of last year there was an FFV combust like that at 1 of our branches

Its really gotten out of hand…..this is the worst I’ve ever seen it. Do we know the statistics for previous years?

So…9 I’m 2014, 27 in 2015, 24 in 2016 and, so far, as of AUGUST 2, 18 in 2017. I’m seeing a trend. I’m gonna say, these “long life vehicles ” have reached the END of their long life. P.o. better step up their game and get us into some new trucks, and soon!

Da’Lyna Pelaez N.Carolina ?

Definitely staying in california lol

What is going on up In N.C. must be something in the Air today

Wait, is that a ffv/crv?

It’s got the extra window so yes I’d say it’s an ffv.

Yea it’s not an llv it’s the ffv

Great, now no postal truck is safe. Maybe povs are next?

Jon Kirkpatrick there already has been a problem with a couple jeeps catching fire.

Oh my no one is safe now…

Anyone know what where at in NC?

Charlotte… friend of carrier in my office.

Carrier is ok?

What year was that one?

What branch was that from

Another one bites the dust.

Hope the carrier is ok. How many is that now?

Happening way too much . If this was a Honda or Ford etc. there would be recalls or something done…

Another bites the dust .


Sure has been a lot of LLV fires lately!!!!
Think the USPS sees a problem yet? Hmmmmm?

Ffv is a Ford

Another one!!! We just had one in New Hampshire go up a few weeks ago! 🙁


That looks like a FFV because it has a window in the side. They are newer.

NewER still ancient. We have one in my office…no one wants to drive it except the carrier it’s assigned to.

Tom this is the new ffv’s I was talking about;(

new!~ LOL

Why won’t they put fire extinguishers in them?

When I requested one I was told no because they want us to get out of the vehicle to safety rather then try to put the fire out.

Burn baby burn. I’m not getting burned to save someone’s mail.

manufacturer defect?

they better provide the fire extinguishers

Hey…at least the back of it mostly survived. ?

it’s just a damn good thing they expect us to get out and look when backing…ooh and text them that we are, because THAT will keep us safe. Of course I suppose it probably is safer outside of the vehicles than actually in them.

Ups and FedEx have them and actually have a small one in my car and look at expiration dates , they gave me a dog spray out of a new box and then I saw the date and it expired 4 years ago , so I sprayed it and way this orange stream that shot about a foot .
Just be careful.

Wow. What is it going to take to make sure all these LLV are safe to driver I think about this every time I am driving just looked at again this is a new truck. Well glad I am retiring in a few months

Safe? Lmbo
