It would be BS.

You don't think they would of done thousands of hours of testing before production?

And the story comes from someone outside Ford. Everyone will be trying to find a fault with the car.

Oh yeah, we did 2 millions kilometers of testing but only during the day. No one thought to test the things at night! :)

Some people will make up all sorts of crap to get their 10 seconds.

Sounds like he was talking about head light covers, which are an accessory and dont get tested till the last minute. Could be a possibility, just means that the light protector material needs to be upgraded.

One good part out of this is that the head lamps could be brighter, just what i wanted YAY

I am not saying that the bA has faults here, but sometimes you can do all the testing you want and still have faults, take our beloved ls1 for example.

The ba will have faults.
just like any other car, ef-el-au etc etc all went through extensive testing but they all had faults but im sure that any faults found will be minor and quickly fixed.

dont get me wrong i dont mean to trash the car before its even released because im positive it will be the best falcon yet! just that we will not doubt be hearing of a few little promblems over the next few months.

by the way with each model falcon the dollars of parts sold under warrenty has dropped significantly
