    So, I drained my battery and got a jump start. Fantastic! I can get back on the road! Wrong! The warning light for ABS module (AdvanceTrac®) and the electric power assist steering came on and I had no power steering. No problem, I went home and began researching what the problem might be. Maybe it was a short?

    The Ford Motor Co. is studying a $9.2 billion investment in Mexico over the next six years.

  • FORD Motor Declares WAR ON CONSERVATIVES - Pushes Gay Agenda

    For many years I have enjoyed some of Ford's vehicles. Unfortunately, there comes a practical limit to what I will tolerate. I will not be a hypocrite and financially support organizations that take sides in this debate. America is in the midst of a Culture War [fn1] with blatant attacks on traditional morals and values. Ford no longer deserves the support of ANY conservative. And however hard it may be, it's time for real action to be taken against this company that is so far out of touch with American values and traditions. The American Family Association (the AFA)...

    The Ford Motor Company has been forced to recall over 70,000 Ford Escapes and nearly 16,000 2013 Ford Fusions due to an issue with overheating that may cause the cars’ engines to catch on fire. The recall is only for select models that were sold in Canada and the United States. This comes after several other recalls Ford has had in the recent past. The recall is for Fusion SEL and SE models with the 1.6 liter engine, and the Escape SEL and SE models. Other Fusions and Escapes aren’t included. This is due to drivers reporting that their engines...
