Re: Ford India recalls EcoSports

Wow even FORD is joined the gang of recall. is it that the build quality is depreciating day by day due to market competition, or is it something else that effecting the quality controls of these big brands.

I think these manufacturers now realized that recall is the one of the important way to survive in the market which in turn make satisfaction in the mind of customers.Thus they make recalls even the magnitude of the fault is smaller.
I wonder when i think there was a time which we indians used the products of now called recallers.That time there was no recall and we indians didn't even know about recalls[lol].

At that time we indian owners of these vehicles many time 'recall' the ASS to sort issues..

They are now recalling the vehicles, only due to the laws here also getting tougher here too and not to make the vehicles perfect.

Probability of issues grew with increase in no. of parts. Those days we had a piece of box powered by a robust engine that could transport us between destinations, but today we have so many features dumped inside the box. Also the norms which got strict now.
