Another day, another hybrid braking problem. Only this time, it's not Toyota. It's Ford.

Late yesterday, Ford announced a "customer satisfaction program" that will ask that owners of 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid and 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid models built before October 17 to bring the cars to their dealer for a free software upgrade.


The fix is meant to reduce the chance that drivers will experience what feels like a loss of braking; it updates the software that controls the interplay among the cars' anti-lock brakes, regenerative brakes, and conventional friction brakes.

"Different brake feel"

In the Fusion Hybrid and Milan Hybrid, the brake control system switches from regenerative braking--to recharge the battery pack--to conventional hydraulic braking if a fail-safe sensor detects electromagnetic signals that might interfere with the electronic brakes.

Ford defines the problem as "a different brake feel," and says, "While the vehicles maintain full braking capability, customers may initially perceive the condition as loss of brakes." The fix will raise the fail-safe system's threshold, to reduce "unnecessary" switching.

Yes, this customer satisfaction campaign is underway.

Alright JJ, you win. Toyota sucks.
I just hope when my Toyota takes off with a stuck accelerator I crash head on into someone like you and kill them so I can rid of people like you!
You hope to kill someone simply for their opinion of a car company?

How much of a loser are you? Do you have sex with your car?

Goodness, gracious! You're beyond obsession, it seems.

I'm all for Toyota cleaning up their act, too rapid an expansion and a focus on cost cutting ahead of all else has not served them well. Also the cars are just dull people movers. Bleah!

Now then lets talk about problems, My Ranger was recalled three times, seatbelts, tires, cruise control. Many electrical problems both in and out of warranty. Stout lil truck but bad enough problems it is probably my last one.
My Grand Am, no recall but there should have been lower intake gasket failed on damn near all of them and dumped coolant into the oil.
My G5, no recall yet but there are complaints and investigations into the electric steering.
Cars are more complicated and there are bound to be problems, and with car companies subing manufacture and assmbly out it will be more and more difficult to hold up quality standards. It's not just a Toyota problem.

What the media, and certainly nobody here is owning up to is the fact that all of the defective Toyotas were in fact manufactured in the U.S., not Japan. So all this xenophobic racism is seriously misplaced. Toyota invested money and trust in U.S. workers and managers and got this for their trouble. If anything, it merely speaks to the work ethic in all those Red States where the plants are located. No Toyotas manufactured in Japan were defective.
