If you are gonna tell it then tell it right.

Here are the vehicles in the recall

• 1995-2003 model year Ford Windstar

• 2000-2003 Ford Excursion diesel

• 1993-1997 and 1999-2003 Ford F-Super Duty diesel;

• 1992-2003 Ford Econoline

• 1995-2002 Ford Explorer and Mercury Mountaineer

• 1995-1997 and 2001-2003 Ford Ranger

• 1994 Ford F53 Motor home vehicles equipped with the Texas Instruments speed control deactivation.


Ford voluntarily extended the recall to include these vehicles. I think it's great that they decided to just include all vehicles possibly affected. This is just Ford stepping up to the plate and doing the right thing.

Yeah, this is a riot. Chevrolet has never had problems. This isn't good for anybody who loves America, Jesus and their Mother!!

Ah, I'm a Ford guy and it doesn't bother me. For should have done this long ago, and had the foresight not to wait and see if the government would force them to before pulling the trigger.

I wonder if Texas Instrument is going to help cover some of the cost of this recall?

honestly, I dont see this as a good thing... because its a problem with a domestic auto maker... and I never want to see that happen to any of the big3... now if it was happening to Toyota, I'd laugh my a$$ off

..oh look, Christine's on that list. (95-02 Explorer)

Not that I've ever had a problem with my cruise control.. and this is probably the 3rd recall on it too. <_<
