On thursday I called Ford's customer relations for another issue I'm having and after they rep was able to get me the answer I wanted she informed me that there's a recall on my car, and that at this time the letters havent been sent out but that the dealer should be able to get the part if they request it. So maybe the full recall wont be active until these letters are sent out but doesnt mean the dealer cant get the part if they request it.
Gm didn't get into specifics, has to do with the fly by wire brakes & a 'NO SELL' order. https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/th...d-humiliated-by-general-motors-itself.148399/What was it all about
As an Engineer, I 100 percent agree with you. Now only manufacturing, but service. Too many times have I seen an engineer develop an "elegant solution" that is a pain in the butt to work on once it's gone from the factory, requiring 6 hours of labor to service for what used to take 45 minutes, or put in a part that will reduce vibration, but that part isn't robust enough to be able to withstand continual use and will fail in spectacular ways if not caught before failure (say, dropping the drive shaft)Those guys need to push their chair back and go out on a manufacturing floor once in a while and visit some suppliers to learn how things are made.
