More Ford diesel woes.....

Ford Halts Sale of Some F-Series Trucks: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

Ford just doesn't need these kinds of problems right now. I've got two friends looking for trucks and both are very concerned about making the investment particularly knowing how Ford treated the folks with the spark plug problem on their gas models. Although they are both passionate Ford people, I see one is leaning heavily towards a Dodge and the other a Duramax. I suspect this will put them over the edge. Oh well...thanks for posting this.

It kills me how a company like Ford with such brand loyalty could flush it all down the drain. It seems to me it wouldn't have been all that hard to just keep things on track. The tiniest bit of vision would have worked fine. But Detroit is so inbred they can barely see past their eyebrows.

I was a "push a Ford before driving a Chevy or Dodge" guy and I guess that's why I'm angry. My current Ford, an '01 Econoline 250, will be my last. If I can hold out long enough for Toyota to come out with a 3/4 ton, that will be my next rig. Toyota might as well be Martian technology compared to what the big 3 put out.

Sorry for the rant but it just kills me.

I guess I was a little concerned that the "fix" was to add software that sensed when there was too much heat, rather than fix the root cause. I will be in the market in the next year, so I will be keeping my eyes open. I do love my diesel Excursion - maybe we'll just keep it a few more years.
