Ford recalls over 950,000 vehicles to replace airbags that can explode 01/04/2019

Ford recalls over 950,000 vehicles to replace airbags that can explode Included are the 2010 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX, the 2010 and 2011 Ford Ranger, the 2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, the 2010 and 2011 Mercury Milan, and the 2010 to 2014 Ford Mustang.


Be VERY careful in the near future on having a professional pre-buy inspection. Do your home work as these "Flood Cars" will soon be at salvage actions with the intent to be sold as "Salvage" with a title that reflects that. However that is NOT ALWAYS the case many will hit Craigslist, Ebay and small less the honorable car lots! Remember that Carfax (or similar sites ) is NOT a foolproof system and only places that do voluntary reporting will show in there report. THERE IS NO MANDATORY REPORTING TO ANY COMPANY OR AGENCY OF ANY KIND!

Volkswagen Is Going To Stop Making The Beetle.
The Volkswagen Beetle is about to become extinct and it doesn’t appear to be coming back this time. After a lengthy production run, the VW “Bug” will come to the end of its life cycle soon. Volkswagen’s research and development leader, Frank Welsch, confirmed the news to Autocar last week.


Ford to stop making all passenger cars except the Mustang!
If you’re looking to buy a car from Ford, you’ll soon have only one choice: a Mustang.

Faced with plunging demand and declining profits
from its passenger car lineup, Ford will shift its resources to the booming side of the market: pickups, SUVs and crossover-utility vehicles, said CEO Jim Hackett late on Wednesday.

Ford Recalls About 350,000 F-150 Trucks and SUV’s For Faulty Transmission Gears 05/17/2018

Ford Recalls About 350,000 F-150 Trucks and SUV’s For Faulty Transmission Gears When it comes to the words that automakers pretty much never want to hear or say, I would think that "recall" would be up near the top of the list. There's nothing that deflates a bottom line more than repairing cars that have already been sold and getting absolutely no return on the money...
