    Bill Ford and James Farley never have to deal with recall issues and the hassle that it is to actually get a recall-fix. They don’t have to make an appointment with a dealer, drive to the dealer, make arrangements to get to work after dropping off the vehicle, wait for the repair, figure out how to get back to the dealer to pick up the vehicle, and try to arrange my work schedule around the recall. I would rather that they just make a good product in the first place.

    Message to Rob, your spot on FORD has taken steps backward due to their own confusion. Purchased ‘22 & ‘23 Bronco and Edge respectively. Ya, FORD has a problem
