🤔 I can’t imagine the B Mac x was dropped from production for this reason, when the same engines continued to be used elsewhere in the rangeInteresting points. Thank you.
Having an early BMax had not known exactly when they ceased manufacture. Its an easy manufacturer fix to just walk from away the issue by ceasing production. We are left driving the things around.
Can understand the likes of daylight running lights have a bit of a safety element, cannot understand how production of carcinogenic particles at any level is a lower priority... especially as I have found the generation of particles by EcoBoost type of engines was known by Ford as far back as 2009.
We are being lead in the ‘solve all the problems, get a new one” direction? In some cases that has merit.
I am still left with the question in my mind as to whether the reason the purchase of a £25 (some say) Petrol Particulate Filter being fitted to the EcoBoost is unknown/unavailable due:
- technical reasons, back pressure created in the exhaust?
- money reasons (they want us to spend ten’s of thousands on a new car).
Hi, your comment about cheaper to pay out for dead people is chilling.🤔 I can’t imagine the B Mac x was dropped from production for this reason, when the same engines continued to be used elsewhere in the range
As far as why the industry hasn’t done the right thing - we’re talking about a huge industry (and in this case Ford) who several decades ago sent an internal memo around, deciding it was cheaper to pay out for dead people, rather than fix a known fault on one of their car designs.
