    And Fords quality control issues continue unabated

    Everyone bags on Ford for their recalls and I understand it makes for great clickbait and headlines. As has been said countless times, every car and most complex mechanical device gets recalled or has service updates or bulletins issued to guide techs. We have a 2020 Acura MDX SH-AWD Tech, a supposedly bulletproof car with a sterling quality and durability reputation. We received the fifth recall for this car last week and before we could get that taken care of, the car left us stranded 360 miles from home with a defective stability control that actuated the brakes, cooking the caliper and rotor, boiling the brake fluid and rendering the car undrivable. The important thing is, the manufacturer discovers it, reports it, develops a fix and get’s your car back in to correct the problem. My experience with multiple Ford products has been overwhelmingly positive and I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another one today.

    Your Acura issues do not negate the fact that Ford has led in recalls for each of the last two years. And 2024 seems to be off to a fast start.
