  • Maybe Ford should be recalled too, then.
  • Less than the costs of lawsuits and loss of reputation, obviously.
  • Other Fusions and Escapes aren't included. This is due to drivers reporting that their engines were giving them various warnings about overheating. "Engine over temp, stop safely" and "Engine Power Reduced to Lower Temps."

    Welcome to logic school, where we learn there's something beyond grammar. What are we saying here? Those warnings only came up for the recalled models? (Ford learned its lesson, Pinto jokes unwarranted.) Only for the don't need to be recalled models? (Ford somewhat learned its lesson, atleast they have diagnostic info to decide with.)

    Fark it: "Fix Or Repair Daily", "cooked or raw",

  • I dig Pintos; they're fine with rice.

    I'm impressed that it was a warning beyond "check engine."

    /When Ford bring out an "Appaloosa" model I might buy it.
    //but no "dressage"!
  • TFA: We have identified an issue and are taking actions in the best interest of our customers.

    So, they increased the cutoff temp??
  • Found
    On
    Road
    Dead

    /Likes his 2007 Fusion SE
    // Not happy about having to replace a bearing at ~60k
  • That's why it's called the Escape...
  • If you see fusion, then escape immediately.
  • Walking in a Wal-Mart parking lot a couple of years ago I saw a Pinto that had lost the gas cap, so the owner shoved an oily rag in its place. Interestingly, the baby seat in back was new and appeared well fastened.

    Safety first.
  • As someone who drives a 2013 Ford Escape under recall this is fun!
  • I have no sympathy for the purchasers. Naming them "Fusion" and "Escape" should've been warning enough. What do they have to name their cars... "The 2013 'You Will Die In A Fire'"?

    Let's see, not having read the thread past you...there's Found On Road Dead...there's Driver Returns On Foot (huh? huh?)...um....I got nuthin'
  • Allen. The end.: I dig Pintos; they're fine with rice.


    I had a Pinto once...had to keep adding bondo due to rust. Interestingly the bondo actually increased the value of the car (?)

    Farking Owners Really Disconsolate

    /ftfm
  • I used to love Pintos. I'd make a commission selling cans of oil at the gas station, and a Pinto was usually good for 2 or 3 quarts. Their only rival was the Chevy Vega, but it was difficult for owners to push them as far as our station.
  • I had a Ford Explorer in the mid-90's that had a "kill engine" switch intended to avert fires, etc. in the event of a crash. Located (in part) under the dash up the floorboard on the passenger side, where a passenger could disable the vehicle simply by stretching their legs. Fortunately, this issue was first detected in a driveway, where the vehicle stayed dead until I could call the Ford Dealer's Service Dept and have them walk me through a reset on the phone.

    /Still like Fords, though. Drive an Escape hybrid that's a few years old, but it's still running like a top

    Navin... is that you?

    I drove a Pinto... once. The accelerator stuck in the wide open position. Let's see... turn the ignition off and let the steering wheel lock for a moment until I switched it back on and did without power steering, roast the brakes until it stopped, take it out of gear and assplode the engine... hmmm.

    Decisions, decisions.
  • I don't know about the wick effect, but they definitely suck..
  • Ford invented the heated rear window so you can keep your hands warm while you are pushing it.
  • because Ford is the only car manufacturer ever recalled a vehicle. morans.
