I wonder what our posting volume for this issue would look like if these were found to be made in China.

Just another reason I will never own another American made car/truck/suv. I am all for supporting America, but not when the vehicles are junk. I buy Japanese.

I guess I'm safe. I've always favored Fords. But I've never owned anything with cruise control. haha

I guess you’re safe. After all when has there ever been a Japanese car recall?

That crap doesn't bother me. I have an old Toyota Land Cruiser with 400,000 miles on it and I just bought another Land Cruiser last year. It runs PERFECTLY and there are NO issues with anything on the vehicle.

On the other hand I had a 1991 Mercury Cougar which over the years completely fell apart, piece by piece. I still have it in my back yard as my wife will not allow me to haul it off to the junk yard. It was her first car, and she wants me to restore it so she can drive it on weekends. She says it's a 'classic'.... haha.
