Saw that and they may be trying to catch up with the American manufacturers now who have been recally faulty engines for decades...and far more. I think Ford hit 4.5 million with just one recall of faulty wiring causing engine fires. It is dissapointing to see Toyota slipping, though I have personal interest in Subaru. :)

ford has actually been kicking the crap out of everyone in terms of quality and product these days. subaru had massive engine failures across the board with the first 2009 WRX's BTW :)

Good thing I have a Forester; not a WRX. :)

Ford has recalled around 4.5 million. These guys have some huge recalls but somehow, even with millions recalled, we rarely hear about them...not sure why they are not more publisized. I can understand a few thousand but hundreds of thousands and millions? Does the DOT just fine them and move on?

I'd still buy a Toyota, though the 4Runner, Landcruiser, and maybe the Sequoia are the only vehicles I'd consider. For those big trips, I ended up buying a used Suburban and it has been great so far though I don't drive it every day.

All of those subie engines with head gasket failures in the mid 90s through 2000-ish. Could be wrong on the end date, but its therebouts.

The revised head gaskets were reliable, tho.
