Last August, FoMoCo issued a recall for select Ford Maverick pickups over an issue with the side curtain airbags where those particular units weren’t deploying properly. To rectify this issue, Ford instructed dealers to replace those airbags with new ones that feature a revised design, but in addition to that, it seems as if some owners are also getting a little present for their troubles – a Yeti tumbler, according to a user at the Maverick Truck Club forums.
The tumbler features Maverick script and the “Built Ford Tough” logo, giving owners a pretty cool way to keep their drinks hot or cold on the go. This particular owner also received a letter that accompanied the tumbler, which reads “This Yeti tumbler, wearing its Maverick logo proudly, is our way of letting you know that we really appreciate you. Thank you for getting the recall repair done at your dealer. Keeping you and those who ride with you safe is always a top priority. We know that you may have been inconvenienced and we are truly grateful for your understanding as we took care of your repair. Enjoy this ready-to-go tumbler wherever the road ahead takes you. It’s double-wall vacuum insulated to keep your drinks the perfect temperature. Coffee and iced tea cheers, and here’s to knowing that whatever you’re into, you can Make It With Maverick.”
This nice little gesture came as a bit of a surprise to this particular owner, but it isn’t the first time Ford has provided its customers with perks. In fact, some 2021 Ford Bronco reservation holders received care packages with posters of early sixth-gen model sketches, along with various other little items here and there including Bronco die-cast models.
Additionally, early Ford Maverick Hybrid reservation/order holders were treated to free Ford Integrated Tether System (FITS) kits, which are essentially slots or receivers designed for matching mounts to slide into and hold accessories.
