That's pretty impressive.  I can barely recall one vehicle.

Ford Exploder recalled again?
I'm shocked.

Our fusions, across generations, have been great.  Fantastic cars. Well equipped, spacious, decent mileage, enough power to get out of their own way.

Every single other ford has been a piece of shiat. I hate it, but my ST is a piece of shiat. My mom's focus is a pos. In laws had a focus and an escape that were both garbage. Sister had an escape that was garbage. Friends with newer trucks all have problems.

Not many catastrophic failures, but just nickle and dime things constantly.

For all the jokes it is still not as problematic as the VW "clean diesel" scandal  and fewer safety recalls then on the 2018 Camry.

All joking aside, Ford was the first to introduce the rear window defroster. It was very helpful to keep your hands warm when you're pushing it off the side of the road

I had an Escort and the door window exploded going over an ordinary railroad crossing.

I had a 2013 Focus with the dual clutch transmission.  Holy crap was that awful.  Slipped constantly, hesitated so much I had to be careful making left turns in heavy traffic, merging on the expressway was iffy at best, and on and on.
The sad thing is, it was a great little car, other than the transmission. Not really something I can overlook.
My grandfather retired from Ford, my father retired from Ford, my husband will be retiring from Ford September 1st, and I was a contract employee with Ford for years.

They didn't sacrifice virgins like the Mayans or massacre Jews so it's perfectly acceptable. If it's not the worst thing then no one should have any reason to complain.

I'm starting to think quality control is an issue for american auto manufacturers.

You'd think they would have been embarrassed and ashamed enough by now to fix it. Or, at least, people would stop buying them until they did.

/it's american assembled anyway, not american made.

Had a Ford escort, put 180,000 miles  on it before it gave up the ghost
Ford Ranger for 16 years, never had anything but oil changes and routine maintenance.
Currently own a focus with 60,000 miles on it.
Never had any issues with my Ford vehicles.

Third generation (98-2000) is a solid truck. I still see them on the road often and I have one myself with 250k miles on it. Not sure what they did with the body on those but it is incredibly rust proof compared to other vehicles in the same era.

Recalls are a fish job. Get the car in the shop, fix some minor problem for free, then look for something else to fix. And there's always something.
 
2021-07-20 9:45:43 PM  
Ford admits when their vehicles have problems and recalls and fixes them as soon as they become aware of it. Unlike some other companies I could name that deny there is a problem until enough people have died that they can't anymore.

Ah, COVID cars.  The only riskier bet is a brand new model.

Impossible. I've been assured that the only cars that need recalls are EVs, and that legacy auto will absolutely put safety above all else.

Fake news.

You take the number of cars on the road, A.
Multiply it by the probable rate of failure, B.
Then multiply that by the average out of court settlement, C.

A times B times C equals X.

If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.

Did you buy an Accord? If so, it was made in America. Marysville, Ohio, to be specific.

Ford does build an assortment of boring but competent cars that offer value for money. We're on our second C-MAX (and my m.i.l. Is still driving the first one). We aren't complaining. They are fine.
 
2021-07-20 11:16:13 PM  
Is it failure? Is it part of an ongoing process of improvement? It is both, isn't it?

And if it all leads to one "ideal" vehicle in terms of safety and efficiency, someone will come along to offer something for everyone who just wants something different.

Wife had a 2012 Focus, transmission shutter was constant unless you drove it like a racecar and floored it at every stoplight.  Was getting up to speed on a major highway and it just decided to stop.  Took it to the dealer and they said the ECM in the transmission was bad, and it was covered because so many people had problems with it so they would change it for free.  HOWEVER, all the other crap that gets broken when the ECM craps out is NOT covered and would need to be replaced for the transmission to actually work.  At least I was able to start the car.  Sold that POS to some guy who rebuilds transmissions or something and bought an Accord.  My wife says she will never drive another Ford.

Oh, and our Focus had less then 80k miles when the transmission kicked the bucket.
