The recall is on the smaller trucks, for hood latches.

I see alot of foreign vehicles being recalled and not doing very well in some crash test. Just so everyone knows TOYota is just about the only one I am hearing about. Thats why I buy AMERICAN and UNION made vehicles. I have mentioned it on here before and I will again because it is one of the most funniest things I have seen, a snow plow on a TOYota Tundra. What the heck was that guy thinking? He needs to buy a real truck!!!! He would be better off with the power wheels we bought our niece for Christmas!!! Just thought I would try to get the ball rolling again. I missed chatting with you guys glad you kept it going.

Actually, for reliability, i still trust some foreign makes, more than domestic...I did see that some of the Toyota's had a problem in a recent crash tests....i often wonder if these crash tests are truly a reliable indicator of real safety levels?

The airlines went through the same economic downturns in the early decade and resolved their issues by "planning" bankruptcy, which allowed an elimination of benefits and pensions.
After this was accomplished, they raised ticket prices and lowered standards. The result? More people then ever fly. The bailout helped the automakers keep prices high, while consumers took major cuts in pay and helped the used car market immensely. Please Washington, don't help the gas companies next!!

Just remember that the companies that didn't take a bailout have vehicles that cost just as much if not more and pay their workers less. So yeah lets screw the working guy instead of getting management that can run a business. There are many other ways to cut spending instead of eliminating benefits and pensions. Let me guess you are on the management side in what ever it is you do? If your not then maybe you need to join a union. I am in a union and during the recession I got pay raises not pay cuts.

Hi Frank,
Ford didn't take a bailout. Does Ford pay their UAW workers less than GM? Are Ford workers getting screwed?
As far as the recall, how can trucks built over a three year period be missing secondary hood latches? That's either a conscious decision or lazy line workers and poor inspection standards. I would guess that they ran out of parts and rather than stop production, the decision was made to ship them out with missing secondary hood latches and recall them later...if they got caught. I wonder how often that happens with ANY automaker.

Wonder if it might not have been included in the original design, missed by the engineers that are in charge of safety or content? Normally i would think that, not even possible....buuuut?

So, what you are saying is that you got pay raises, but it is only because you are a union member, not because of your work performance, or the quality of your work, it's only because of your union membership that you got those raises.
Nice!
For me, I'd rather get my pay raises because the owner see's my work effort, and production, and dedication.

No Ford didn't take a bail out and I wasn't talking about Ford I am talking about the foreign companies.

Exactly, pay raises should come from merit....and only during a healthy business climate....Unions have started out doing good, and ended up being a disservice to the american worker, let alone the manufacturing sector....
