Ford said its biggest trucks, the diesel-powered F-Series Super Duty and Excursion SUV, are being recalled because of a lousy battery interface which could cause other engine parts to go haywire in a domino-effect style string of catastrophic failures which will probably only end when the engine explodes in a gigantic fireball. Well, not really. But the battery connectors do leave something to be desired— and apparently so do the axles on some of Ford's sedans. The Lincoln Town Car and Ford Crown Victoria are being sucked back into the Ford vortex because their axles may squeak or even seize. Then there are the noisy-ass front seats in the Taurus/Sable and Thunderbird. All told, 107,000 vehicles are affected.
