Lol. Not at gmi...discussing Camaro. Again...still.

Continental recall is not a big deal. I doubt that it'll affect production all that much if at all

Re: Continental Recall

Another important thing to note about the Continental recall, is that Lincoln actually comes to the owners home or place of business, picks up the car, leaves a loaner if necessary, and brings the customers car back to the owner when it's done. It's not like the old Lincoln days when the customer had to make an appointment, then drive to the dealership and wait for their car.

This could also be a good opportunity for Lincoln to measure the process.

That ain't me being the problem. That post count is the symptom.

Puppy dogs will nip at heels, the earth will turn, and Lincoln will continue to have issues with product launches.

Speaking of that individual, he posted many taunts at gmi until he was banned. I think it's lifetime. Maybe he's still there under a different username but it's better now.

When I joined here, it was to join in discussions on Lincoln and to unite w other Lincoln fans. Lincolns future was still up in the air. I quickly discovered how like minded members as me were attacked and then just never posted again. Gmi is chaotic sometimes but members aren't attacked and badgered to the same degree as is the case here.

So I post what I think and if anyone doesn't like it, then that's their problem. This forum has become mindless entertainment for me during slow periods at work. Kinda sad but I'm sticking around for kicks. Maybe I'll start posting more than a few times a month lol
Everybody knows who in here killed this place (and many other places too, for that matter). Why they let him rattle around like a fart in a sardine can is beyond all reckoning. But there you have it.

As to the topic: this is not necessarily a huge deal. But my earlier allusion to it being a vendor QA/QC issue just underscores the dangers with beancounters tightening the screws on vendors. Whether it's this, or subpar interiors, or any number of other things... it rarely ends well, and often blows up at the least opportune time.

Ford recalls 1,900 new Lincoln Continentals to fix headlamp assemblies

Ford Motor Co. said today it is recalling nearly 1,900 2017 Lincoln Continentals in the U.S. and Canada for possible defective headlamp assemblies. The vehicles went on sale in the U.S. last month, with 775 sold in September.

Ford’s recall covers 1,826 vehicles in the U.S. and 49 in Canada built between June 14 and Sept. 23.

Ford said the lights may have been built without the proper lenses to meet federal requirements for turn signal visibility. The vehicles will be inspected at dealerships and defective assemblies will be replaced.

Re: Continental Recall

Off topic a bit, but perhaps not worth it's own thread,

Re: Continental Recall





of course I'm waiting for the time (should I live long enuf) for when the current price-range of Lincolns becomes an ill-fitting whitespace as they move steadily up towards TrueLux
