Ford Is Covering Repair Costs For Carbon Monoxide Leaks
October 17th, 2017
There have been reported carbon monoxide leaks in Ford Explorers and Interceptor Utilities for almost a year. And The Drive reports that the automaker is finally announcing it will offer to pay for the 1.4 million vehicles affected by the issue.
Numerous police departments across the country reported officers feeling sick in certain conditions while in patrol vehicles and after government and NHTSA investigation, the complaints were confirmed. Ford, however, says they tested vehicles and still didn’t find high levels of carbon monoxide. If you have a vehicle that’s affected you can take it to a local dealership starting November 1st.
This week on PowerNation its time for Mopars! Katie features two survivors both owned by Ted Stephens of Stephens Performance. Both are unrestored, all original paint and interiors.
The 1968 Hemi Charger R/T is powered by the 426 Hemi and painted in a rare buffed Silver, that’s where the factory actually ran a buffer over the paint, the only color they did that with. It only has 12,000 original miles on it. The second Mopar is a 1969 440 Six Pack Road Runner with only 9,000 original miles. The interior is factory stock and you can see this muscle car on display at Floyd Garrett’s Muscle Car Museum in Sevierville, TN. Truly two rare gems from the muscle car wars, check it out this week.
