I had a 1995 Ford Escort that stalled at a stop light and when I tried to re-start it, it burst into flames and burned to the ground. Ford was NO HELP, whatsoever....Good Luck. I'll never purchase another Ford Product.

One would think, that after All these years Ford would have it right, as they have been building cars and trucks longer than anyone else. Jeezzz!!

It's not the company...it's the workers. Lunch at the bar, sleeping on the job. Outlandish pay for remedial work.
Please.

Keep buying those foriegn cars while the UAW drains the blood from the domestic companies and see where it gets you. Your job, in one way or another ... or many... is affected by the auto industry. Buying foreign products and thinking the economy is going to bounce back is like cutting off your weak hand to improve your batting average. Possible, but certainly not probable.

You want better cars, demand quality work for quality pay. Tell the UAW to start putting up or shutting up.

And as for background, I grew up in a family where 90% were employed by auto factories and I own several cars:

1995 Dodge 2500 (167,000 miles)- no problems other than the light on the radio

1997 Ford Escort (134,000 miles)- have since replaced the alternator and lots of wiper blades bc it's used so often

2001 Ford Windstar (117,000 miles) that has been pulling a camper around for years...biggest problem is the kids pushed in the jack on the headphone recepticle for the movie player

2005 Cheverolet Monte Carlo (35,000 miles) just a peach! Only problem, it won't do over 110 miles an hour on the freeway without some silly kill switch clicking the engine out until it gets back down below 100.

But....for serious engineering problems, recalls should be handled swiftly. Period. Hey, and how's about we start sending our middle class kids to college so that the engineerign department can be populated with employees who speak native ENGLISH and perhaps we'll have less need for recalls!

Heck, Courtesy Chevrolet couldn't fix the ABS brakes on my Camaro. Eventually it locked up on the expressway interchange and put me into a guard rail. Honestly, I was glad to be rid of that piece of junk.

I feel safer on my Japanese-made motorcycle than riding in an American-made product.

Mechanics at other car makers dealerships also drink at bars during lunch or sleep on the job. The pay sucks! Flat rate is the worst way to be paid! No work means no pay, no pay means no food on the table for the family or paying bills.

After you have them all recalled then see to it that they do not return.

The U.S. National Debt is gone through the ceiling. Much of the money comes from China. The National Debt is just like any other loan --- it has to be serviced to pay back the debt PLUS interest.

The value of the American dollar is tanked.

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is fallen.

The latest news out of Detroit is that U.S. auto manufacturers have fallen from grace in the world auto manufacturing market.

The cost of oil is at a record $100 a barrel and the price of gasoline at the pump is expected to reach past $3.50 per gallon.

There are multi-Billions of dollars that are spent to keep up the infrastructure for auto vehicles to get around but this is NOT a work activity that strengthens the financial condition of a country. As a nation we are doing nothing more than just exchanging doing each other's laundry.

The home mortgage foreclosures continues to steadily rise. This is a SEVERE problem for lending companies, which are an important part of our nation's business community.

The stock market is performing very poorly.

Inflation continues to be a devastating problem.

Problems America is having from AUTO VEHICLES, which relates to ALL of the other problems, have to be addressed quickly. Get rid of auto vehicles. We will be safer, wealthier, healthier, and happier.

The FACTS about AUTO VEHICLES::

o DEADLY AND DESTRUCTIVE crashes happening on a CONTINUING basis. Death, injuries, maiming, misery, damage to property and infrastructure, lost job productivity, destroyed personal and civic finances and long-time lingering effects start immediately upon being involved. Effects on other traffic in the nearby vicinity and even not so nearby vicinity, stalling the flow of traffic lanes that people use to get to and from work, etc. Measures for PREVENTING the crashes, such as driver licensing and establishing extensive traffic laws and road rules, costly traffic enforcement and control, driver education, vehicle safety rules, are all proven to be ineffective.

o High RECURRING private and civil costs to own, maintain, and operate auto vehicles.

o Severely negative nationwide effects due to our heavy dependence on foreign imported oil, for which auto vehicles are the major cause.

o Ability for extremely dangerous crimes against the public to be easily (and often successfully) carried out via the use of auto vehicles.

o Physical damage that is being done to our environment and precious resources.

o Emotional and moral damages that are being done to our society.

o Taxpayers and consumers are literally paying out BILLIONS of dollars for the infrastructure (roads, lighting, signs, bridges, guardrails, traffic jams, road maintenance, repairs, traffic enforcement, emergency responders, Road Rangers, parking facilities, junk yards, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.) for auto vehicles to get around.

o And ADDITIONAL negative aspects of auto vehicles are:: 1. the lost productivity (inability to read, study, work on computer) that each solo driver sustains in the daily commute; 2. the lack of physical exercise (drive instead of walk, bicycle to station / bus stop); and, 3. ease of access to fast food drive throughs, thereby contributing to increased incidence of obesity.
