Ford recalls 1.3m vehicles for loose steering wheels in North America

According to the Blue Oval, the steering wheel bolt may "not maintain torque", and if left untreated, the steering wheel could potentially detach when in use – leading to a loss of steering control and an increased risk of a collision...

Screw your stupid hidden door handles!

What's with the disappearing rear door handles? Modern car designers seem to be getting more and more enamoured with the idea that making the rear doors of cars appear as though they're missing entrance levers is in some way sleek, modern or - God forbid - cool. It isn't. Door handles are important and they should be there for all to see and feel...

2017 Lincoln Continental revealed in Detroit

“Don’t call it a comeback,” Ford might say of its new 2017 Lincoln Continental, but there can be little doubt the carmaker’s luxury arm needs to make one.

Toyota dominates Consumer Reports reliability survey as Ford falters

Toyota Motor Corp has dominated the 2012 US Consumer Reports new-vehicle reliability index while Detroit-based manufacturer Ford Motor Co has ungraciously slumped to the bottom of the rankings. Scion, Toyota and Lexus filled the podium of the independent organisation's 2012 Car Reliability Survey directly ahead of Mazda, Subaru, Honda and Acura in a result that saw Japanese manufacturers take out the top seven places in Consumer Reports’ rankings...

Lincoln pips Lexus in American Customer Satisfaction Index

Lincoln, the luxury division of Ford in the US, has pipped Toyota’s premium arm, Lexus, to become the highest-ranked automotive manufacturer in the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) for 2012.

Lincoln MKZ: Ford luxury brand's new mid-size sedan revealed

So, this was a wholly appropriate venue for the unveiling of the 2013 Lincoln MKZ, the first car to appear from the luxury brand’s dedicated design studio in Dearborn, Michigan. When a carmaker wants to make a big splash at the New York International Auto Show, they do two things: first, they stage their own exclusive event days before the show even starts and, second, they hold that event at the IAC Building, an office designed by the world-famous architect, Frank Gehry...
