Ford Ranger Recall

Ford will recall 25,000 2010 Ford Ranger trucks because of problems with fuel leaks and electrical shorts that could lead to fires. Ford told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration — who is already displeased with Ford – that it is calling back these 2010 Ford Ranger trucks with 2.3L engines to inspect a fuel line for chafing.

This is the second recall for the same Ford Rangers. Stating the obvious: when you are issuing a do-over recall, that is a bad thing.

This Ford recall also involves about 10,000 other pick-up trucks/crossover vehicles to fix a software problem that could lead to an electrical short and overheating, potentially causing a fire.

Like the Ford F-150 recall, people don’t appear to be getting hurt by these defects. But they are not doing a lot for consumer (or investor) confidence in Ford. We are all rooting for Ford to straighten these issues out and make good, safe cars and trucks.
