now that's quality
Fake news. Ford is perfect.
"The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere the ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. "

It is a minor repair, but there is the potential for injury or worse if that minor repair isn't made.
Great, is my Ford stock ever going to up?
I bolded the part you misread. The piece that is removable with a tool simply isn't there.Ford Motor Co. issued a safety alert for the 2020 Explorer and Lincoln Aviator SUVs on Wednesday, noting that the vehicles may be missing a part that keeps the car from moving while parked, "increasing the risk of crash."
The company, which has touted its two new sport utility vehicles built only in Chicago, as long-awaited flagship products, said in a news release that the vehicles may be missing the manual park release cover, which is not a minor issue.
"Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards require the manual park release cover be in place and only removable with a tool. If the cover is not installed, the manual park release lever may be inadvertently activated, which could result in unintended vehicle movement if the electronic park brake is not applied," Ford said in its release.
And, if you do not read what I am reading, then someone already jammed a screwdriver into something and an accident already happened.Ford said it is aware of one report of an accident occurring during vehicle transport within the production process.
To expand on this a little...would it mean that the Aviator sucked if someone forgot to put the 5th lug on a few wheels coming off the line? We're conflating a production mis-step w/ overall quality of the vehicle. Human error in production...nothing more, nothing less.

And I'm not looking for a list of GM's quality issues to be used to dismiss Ford's problems.
