Another day, another recall. This time it's Ford with two separate recalls that involve its big SUVs and full-size vans. The first affects 124,000 Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators built from 2007 to 2008. Apparently the spring system inside their door handles could break. While not a life threatening defect, Ford says there is the possibility of the latches opening in a side crash. No injuries or accidents have been attributed to the faulty door handle assemblies, but Ford will replace all those affected at no charge.

The second recall, which involves 57,000 E-Series full-size vans and 2007 Expeditions and Navigators with the 5.4L V8, is a bit more serious. The defective part is the engine's fuel rail crossover hose, which could crack and leak, potentially causing a fire. Again, no reports of injuries or accidents have been associated with the defective hose and dealers will replace them at no charge. If you've got an affected vehicle for either recall, contact your dealer ASAP and set up an appointment to have the parts in question replaced.

      If they don't recall then it's 'cause "they don't stay behind their products", if they do: "blah blah blah, fix or repair daily, blah, blah, blah".

      You guys are so hilarious...

      hey atleast they are recalling it with out waiting until somebody dies in it like some auto manufacturers....

      Ford is a recall king because they do not want what happened in the Firestone/explorer issue to rise its ugly head

      look whats happening with GM....

      David Champion, senior director of Consumer Reports' auto test center, said Ford's quality remains below Toyota and Honda, but added the Dearborn automaker is now competing with those brands instead of with the other U.S. manufacturers.

      "They're definitely in what we would call the top tier," he said. "They are making serious inroads."

      not that i am a toyota fan, but I do recall most of you all bashing them for recalling the Tundra, which is their 1st full size pick up ever,

      check this out, they been making the Expedition and E-series vans forever and still cant figure them out right just yet.

      now to more news, GMT 900 full size suv/truck's seem to be having fire issues, not recalls yet, but they may be forced to do so

      Like I always say: whether domestic or import, they all have recalls. Better to have a recall to fix a potentially dangerous or problematic system than to avoid it and cause injury or loss of life. Recalls aren't as damaging to an auto manufacturers reputation as some might think.

      oh.. i forgot to add... its not always the manufactures fault. the supplier is quite responsible about an issue as well.

      It's OK guys, just buy 10 year old Fords where the recalls have all been done. Well, unless it's one of the Fords where the recall itself got recalled.
      And of course you'd have to deal with the fact that 10 year old (and for that matter, 5 year old) F-150's have crash test ratings like this:

      But it's OK, we know the Ford fanbois will just keep making fun of Chinese and Indian car manufacturers anyways. Yep, keep making fun of how crappy other companies' cars are-completely ignoring the fact that those same crappy car companies are making leaps in improving quality while Ford is continuing to piss away what little credibility they have and only bringing competitive products to Europe. Wtf Ford, wtf.

      KT.

      Finally someone with a bit of good sense.

      But then, why would they bother to think about it?? Bashing is just a lot easier...

      Yeah, Ford sucks. They suck so much they are starting to catch a problem before it becomes too widespread. Nope, nothing has changed.

      And their vehicles are such huge heaps that the F-Series continues to be a sales king and the E-Series continues to slaughter the Sprinter in sales. Yeah, Ford MUST be doing something wrong.

      Yeah, it's all Ford's fault. They most likely didn't manufacture that spring or hose. But even if they didn't, it's 100% Ford's fault.
