I read today that Ford will reduce it's warranty costs by 5 billion dollars.
How will they do that?
Pay the dealers less to fix warranty issues?

That means one thing your Ford Warranty issues are not going to get resolved. Isn't that just another great idea from Ford.

By denying warranty claims and forcing buyers to court in non lemon law states. Tried and true tactics they have used over the years and they wonder why their market share recedes. If they aren't careful they will eventually cede the pickup market share lead also.

I read that too. Not real smart for them to actually announce it in the press.

It means Ford will stiff the customer on warranty repairs. There are two ways to reduce warranty claims besides just selling fewer vehicles. One way is to increase build quality, but that’s not happening. The other way is to deny warranty claims.

My company just keeps leasing them (Transit 250s), and each year seems to be worse than the one before. I'm starting to think they like paying big bucks for denied warranty claims, out of warranty repairs, & rentals! Ford is already denying a lot, I can't imagine how they could get any wose.

Ford is in dire straights. The bottom is going to drop out soon.

They can easily do that by not putting out cars with GARBAGE transmissions. No more cars for Ford anyways except the Mustang, so problem solved.

A few decades ago I was a Ford loyalist. Good for a new car/truck every two years. They so made me hate them over their warranty treatment of me that I now fervently wish they would go under. Too bad for all their employees I suppose but my spite knows no bounds when it comes to Ford.

That statement is targeted at Wall Street. To us that won't tell you whether it is "improve reliability" or "deny the car is problem" or "we'll shaft our dealer for it". I'll play it safe by not participating, as I don't think Ford can improve reliability enough to just cut back this cost.

Maybe, if they stop developing unreliable tech (Dual clutch, turbo, direct injection) and keep using the old reliable tech (6 speed auto, 4 cylinder NA), that'll happen?
