I had paid to have this fixed and then a month later, it was a recall. Ford did reimbursement for the repairs.

Mariner Premier 3.0L

The internet is full of this issue. This problem can easily cause an accident. What will it take for Ford to take responsibility for their mistake, deaths and lawsuits? I will pray for owners of Mariners and Escapes and will loose more sleep than Ford exec's.
