Fires In Fords

As I’d posted on my blog previously, my next door neighbor’s 1998 Ford Explorer exploded in their garage a few Saturday nights ago. WESH channel 2 [NBC affiliate], filed an investigative report this past week with regard to the defective cruise control switches on these vehicles. Just last night, they reported that Ford is expanding the safety notices to include Explorers, Windstars, Econolines and Ranger pickups [years 1997 – 2002]. They haven’t expanded the recall to these vehicles yet, but if you own one, you should disconnect the part as shown here.

To sum it up, if you own a 1997 – 2002 Ford truck, van or SUV, disconnect this switch and get in touch with your dealer — if not for peace of mind, then to ensure the saftey of your family and your property.
