    Three total loss fires out of 1.4 million vehicles is not statistically newsworthy. The real question is who would Ford, or any reputable vehicle manufacturer, chose to use a company like Takata as a component supplier, knowing that Takata has yet to replace their dangerous air bag inflators? Perhaps a few large punitive damage awards against Ford would encourage them to use suppliers who care about product safety.

      I remember when Ford got into it with Firestone when their Explorers were rolling over all the time. Turned out it was the narrow wheel base instead of the tires.

        I remember when Ford got into it with Pintos exploding after being rear-ended and they decided it’s cheaper to pay out on the death claims than it was to recall and fix the defect.

          Stupid to buy Pinto’s to start with. Remember when Corvair’s were banned for rolling over due to their undercarriage defects. Ralph Nader was responsible for getting them off the road.
