Wonder how long it will take them to announce a recall once the **** hits the fan?

Hell, Ford, with both exploding tires and gas tanks has never been this deep in it. As for the Vibe, I think most people are writing it off because Pontiac no longer exists.

Yeah...a few years back Ford had a problem with wiring harnesses in F-150's and Explorers catching on fire.
That took them all of like a week to fix..Toyota has been dragging their feet for years on this.

For the record..my dad's 05 Explorer didn't come with Firestone tires.

I think an obligatory BOHICA is required in this situation.
