    Ouch! This is going to be expensive to repair. An hot on the heels of the same issue for the Bronco.

    I just signed my paperwork ready to take a new ranger home. Not so fast windshield recall. 6/29/2022. 😟😟

    Ford should be embarrassed with all these recalls on brand new vehicles. It weren’t from laughable to sad. Super Duty, F150, Mach E, Bronco, Ranger. It’s insane. My father used to say “you can’t embarrass someone that has no shame”. This describes Ford

      I hope Ford is not using the same bonding agents on their Aluminum F-150 Body panels??? That could prove interesting…

    Not saying it hasn’t happened, but I’ve never heard of this issue before now. At least four different vehicle lines? This has got to be unprecedented!

    Wow, someone at Ford had to have green lighted using an inferior or less of a bonding agent just to save a buck.

    At this rate of expensive recalls Ford is not gonna make near enough money to provide for that planned 50billion EV investment if they continually have to spend hundreds on practically each and every vehicle they make having to recall them several times each after they leave the factory.

    Now I get why Farley wants to go to non-negotiable pricing.

    By the way, who in a Ford dealer service dept. replaces windshields? Isn’t/wasn’t that a body shop job. Not every dealer has a body shop any more. Windshield replacement is no longer a fairly straightforward job anymore. There’s electronics involved. Something to think about, just sayin.

      Bonding agent, made in China???

  5. John Coviello

    Yeah, Farley must have been looking to save money again to waste it on EV’s !!!!!!!! What a F*^*^*^**ing IDIOT !!!! That nobody but stupid kids are buying…….
