    Car Recalls Blog – http://carrecalls.blogspot.com/Switchfires.comRip-off.comsafetyfourmedmondsfordfires.compaytonsprojectmyspace.compaytonsmom twitterSavage Factory by Robert DewarRead up on Ford Motor Company, and see that if any compsny deserves to die it is Ford Motor Company. They are a company that reminds me of OJ Simpson, everyone knows the truth, yet he still slipped by the criminal justice system. Even the Civil courts left no closure for the families of the murdered. Ford Motor Company hides there horrible deadly decisions behind , slimmy Dykema Attorney’s. That walk around like robots, never to understand the human world, or compassion. They destroy families, and smile in your face. They sit behind close doors creating plans to kill the victim one more time in court.Destroying the last bit of character ,just to smile and walk away with a win, and enormous legal fees. Because it doesn’t matter about justice, truth, or social responsibility. All that matters is Ford Motor Company, and Alan Mullally’s smiling face of the company.Ford Motor Company does not care about safety, it cares about the public seeing them giving you a van. When the van burns up they will run away, blaming anyone and anything except themselves. They are fake! If they were real, and really cared about safety, they would have recalled the millions of vehicles strapped with a ticking time bomb called a (cruise control deactivation switch)SCDS for short. This switch has killed and will continue to kill. My son was just one, his girlfriend was 2, and Ford Motor Company has failed in every opp. to make this right with our family. over two years later my car sits, burned in a warehouse awaiting a court battle. Believe me, trust me disconnect your cruise control switch, They will Lie straight to your face. Keep the children safe.
