Ford Steering failure

The NTSB is finally investigating the Ford electric steering failures we have seen on the Forum. Of course Ford still denies the problem.

What a surprise. Electric power steering bugs have afflicted almost every automaker who uses it, or it least it seems that way.

I’m happy to sacrifice 1.5 mpg or whatever the penalty is for good old hydraulic power steering. Which has never failed me once in my entire driving life.
