I take it this will affect some of us ranger owners? I got mine fixed when I received the recall notice in the mail. According to the article it sounds like only a small portion of the people who had it fixed will have to re visit the dealership.
Read the article and post what you think or any other info!!!!!!!
whats sad is when the recalled parts go through 6 recalls of their own only to find out the original part wasn't the defective part after all... which I think will ultimately end up happening after all. I also have to laugh, my '93 Bronco has the same recall, yet the deactivation switch and harness arent even near the master cylinder or reservoir.
haha ive said it once, and ill say it again. Ford engineers are 4 year olds with crayons
Back in the early 90s Ford got rid of the large portition of it's talent in engineering. (highly paid & experienced guys) There are a few left.. but for the most part it's a company run by Marketting weenies and accountants. Engineering is done by people who are quite often from other counties (or in other countries) & don't have much interest in cars.
Is it really any supprise that the focus had 8 recalls? Any supprise in this matter with the CC recall?
if memory serves me right, the problem with the cruise control switch is that it stays powered after you turn the truck off, the lil doohickey gets hot, shorts out, and if you parked it in the garage, will burn your house down. cool huh?
Well I guess it's good that my local dealership didn't have any parts left. I got mine done in October, but they just disconnected my cruise. They just fed me some BS about Ford hoping to have some new stock in by the 4th quarter......but it's fine with me. At least now when my POS Ford burns my house down, I'll be covered by insurance....my @ss is covered.
Guess now those new parts won't be coming any time soon.......LMAO @ Ford. What a bunch of penny pinching @ss clowns!!!! And then we wonder why Ford is going down hill.....LOL
