Default Ford in trouble again. Remember firestone?

Fords having nightmares, and they know that a storm is coming their way.

A silly switch that stays on (or hot) whether the car is running or not is their problem. Its caused fires and potentially a death.

The last time they got away with blaming the tyre manufacturer....wonder who will take the blame this time around - the poor component manufacturer?

Scary stuff man. With so much going into cars these days, it's really hard for things to work the way they're expected to. Too much tech = more chances of failure.
