    good work by ford,handled much better than fiat.
    You key in your VIN No in Ford website and you know whether your car is in list or not, unlike fiat where it all depends upon dealer only and you can only guess whether your car is effected or not. If the dealer informs then well and good but most dealers don't inform people. There are still some fiat cars running on plastic CSC.

    Also ford sends letter and email to effected customers to inform them so good on their part. My friend received a letter from ford for change of rear axle they term it as rear twist something.
    Even Fiats were recalled for rear axle common vendors?

    in my recent trip i was caught by hyd traffic police somewhere arounnd Koti or Abids junction.
    He asked me to take the car side that too i was in heavy traffic as my car was having MH number plate.
    he came up and asked me from where are you coming and whats the purpose of visit to hyd.
    i replied him in telugu been to native and now returning home.
    he asked me for the car documents i shown him everything and later asked me to go and meet the officer,i argued him why to meet whats the problem(had big argument in the junction itselves),then he came up with reason that my number is fancy i.e. number is not as per rules and shown me few of the examples of car passing by the road.i argued again this time,i never had problem with my number in maharashtra and karnataka and i cant make number plates as per your state requirements.
    Finally he asked me kuch toh dekae jao saheb(shameless) ,paid him 20 rupees :lol and went off
  8. Does driving around in your car for an extended period of time, with the AC set to recirculation mode, lead to lack of oxygen in the cabin, leading to sluggishness, and a possible blackout? If not, why? Doesn't the recirculation mode cut off external air completely? I do get faint external smells, so there IS intake of external air? So, do you advise the recirculation mode for a long drive, say, for 3 hours?

    not really as the cabin is not completely air tight but still its better to switch to fresh mode once in a hour.
