Those are always fun to monitor, because sometimes auto companies sit on older recalls to time them with another's larger to try and keep bad press to a minimum. Also manufacturers review others recalls to make sure they don't have the same problem. So expect more, much smaller focused recalls to occur from everyone


That's hilarious. It's like the kid who admits to stealing a cookie after his brother's been brought home by the police.

Speaking of which it seems Ford just issued a ton of them. Including some not so small stuff like faulty fuel tanks, axles, and transmission issues.

If you are still driving a windstar you should probably rethink your life, even if the car was given to you.

From what I've read you might as well be driving Goofy's Jalopy around.

They are the worst car of modern times. Rust in half, eat transmissions, then have every other ford problem.

Still, Tut was right after all. Here in rootin', tootin', pollutin' Oz there are no govt. incentives for buying hybrid or diesel. They are bought purely on economy grounds, and are super popular thanks to the rise of the family SUV. I always thought it strange that new cars could spurt disgusting black smoke every time a driver floored it. It used to be the odd 80s hippymobile with an ironically/infuriatingly out of tune engine. Now it's like we're in a city full of buses.

I think the US govnt still gives up to $7500 tax credit for an electric car.

Reminds me when the housing market was shit and the govnt was offering an $8000 new home buyers credit. Lucky for me, I was all over that! :D
