Shouldn't they be posting stuff about the Devil(GMH)?

Why would anyone want to jeopardise their favoured company?

Beats me.

In closing....It could be a good idea to show all the work that has been done by ford for safety, but I dont like the attitude of that post.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

I can't see how that would be benificial to anyone. Informing customers of Mistakes which Ford has made will only give them reason not to buy the product. Fords are made by Human beeings remember.

Can anyone say 'Mitsubishi'? If BON pulls this off then I fear that Ford will be at risk of going under due to loss of sales and HUGE legal claimsSurely there is a better way then that to tell Ford that they know about the problems.

I just hope that any negative outcome doesn't spread to this part of the world.

It's not the appropriate time to do such a thing. It never is and I am against it but I feel this is about the worst time anyone could ever do something like this.

I think someone else said this but if Chev, Pooick, Opel ect bugger up it doesnt have the same affect like It would to Ford Australia when Ford Global is up the sh!tter. I think it's going to make the new Explorer very difficult to sell in other parts of the world. I've spoken to a few People who all now are convinced Ford have bad quality Issues and fear for thier safety if theybuy a Ford Product. NOT HAPPY JAN!!!

Consumers need to be aware of possible safety defects in the vehicles that are being sold regardless of the brand. Obviously BON is all about Fords so they report Ford facts. I think some of you guys are a little too one (blue) eyed at times. Ford is not perfect (unfotunately) and on the other hand neither is GM or Toyota or Mitsubishi etc. Would you want to drive around in or have your family drive around in a vehicle that had serious safety problems that the dealer/manufacturer didn't want you to know about - I think not. :rdead:

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
