The TV news is reporting a massive recall (4.7 million cars) of nearly every make of car on the US markets. Except Ford. The problem is a defective airbag part that can explode and throw shrapnel thru the driver and passenger instead of inflating the airbag. The part is purchased from a parts house named Takata.
I wonder how this happened? Was Ford's quality control so effective that they refused to buy the Takata parts? Were Ford buyers able to obtain a better price from some other supplier? Was Ford just lucky?
Anyhow, as a Ford owner, and long time fan, I am OK with this.
