Glad You Own A Toyota, because Fords are shooting out Spark Plugs

A California lawyer is petitioning federal regulators to recall about 17 million Ford vehicles, including F-Series pickup trucks, because of a problem that can cause spark plugs to blow out

Nearly 200 consumers have complained to ConsumerAffairs.com about the problem over the last five years. In nearly every case, the Ford owners also complained to Ford, only to be told that the problem was not covered under their warranty and disclaiming any knowledge of a broader problem.

T.J. of Wichita Falls, Texas, complained two years ago that the spark plug blew out of his 1999 Ford F-150. "It is costing me $3,000 to fix this problem. I just returned from the war overseas in Iraq and this is what I get to come home to," T.J. said

i agree......only a toyota or lexus will reside in my driveway

The only reason i would buy a chevy or ford is so i could beat it up without remorse.

Before you go ballistic and sniff in overmuch superiority (and with Fords that is admittedly usually completely justified...)

Some Toy 3.4s have had that problem as well. No one, it appears, is immune. One guy I read even put over $4K into the repair and thought he got a good deal, for something that could have cost him under $100... Sheesh.
