Its not junk, its just design flaws. Be glad that ford cares enough to announce when they have a recall and get it fixed for you.
First off, just to let you know, Wrong Forum. We have a section called: Problems and Recalls. Second mine has been in the shop 20times. For Recalls and Warranty Repairs.
FORD found the problems?? Not likely. Recall campaigns are not usually voluntary because they cost megabucks. These problems were found by other poor souls. Enough of them screamed at NHTSA (and whatever equivalent Ministry you have in Canada) and Ford could either 1) wait for the government to TELL them to do it or 2) wait for the lawsuits to start pouring in and fight them or 3) just suck it up and do it.Take it in when you get your oil changed. What's the big deal. At least Ford is finding the problems not you.
So let me get this straight, if Ford had not TOLD you there were problems with your car you would think it is a great car
Sell your car and quit your whining.
