Ford adds 4.5M vehicles to defective switch recall

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Ford-a...14213.html?x=0

The latest voluntary action pushes Ford's total recall due to faulty switches to 14.3 million registered vehicles over 10 years, capping the company's largest cumulative recall in history involving a single problem.

hopefully everyone else will realize that as well, and not think this lack of quality continues onto new vehicles

And unlike other companies, this is a voluntary recall.

Yah, I just got my notice in the mail... for my 5 years gone due to jacking '95 Mark VIII. I'm waiting for the HoopTBird next... which is also not in my possession any longer.

an example of being "cheap" ending up being more expensive in the end - both financially and in terms of image. hope GM learns something from this.
