Why is part of the radiator housing a plastic that really isn't all that hard. Cheap, Cheap, Cheap, the part store knew what piece to sell me from the frequency and mechanics. can't believe ford made a part such as this.....

Oct. 10, 2009; I'm sitting at a light and the car made a big WHOOSH! sound and smoke started flowing from under the hood. The radiator hose busted and anti-freeze went everywhere. Solution: Luckily it was a minor problem and no need for a shop or maintenence, but I'm curious what next month will bring. AARRGGHHH!!!!! Now I strongly believe what they say about FORD! Found On Road Dead! This is just the most recent, after 4 months straight of problems.
