In June of 1903, Henry Ford founded the Ford Motor Company after his previous corporation, the Detroit Automobile Company failed. Mr. Ford founded the company with $900 of his own money and the help of 12 investors who combined to buy 1000 shares of stock in the company. Ford Motor Company was immediately successful and by October of 1903 had turned a profit of almost $40,000. Within two years the company would post a profit ten times that amount.
The Ford Motor Company produced a number of vehicles that were fairly successful in the early years of the company. These included the Model A produced in 1903, the Model K in 1906 and the Model S in 1907. While these models enjoyed a brisk initial success and showed the engineering capabilities of the company, it wasn’t until 1909 when the company found its most successful model and one that epitomized its identity. This is when the Model T was introduced.
The Model T was so successful that Henry Ford had to develop the basic techniques of mass production. In 1909, only 18,000 Model T’s were produced but that figure grew exponentially until it reached its climax in 1920, by then the company was manufacturing over 1 million vehicles a year.
With the Model T as its flagship product, the Ford Motor Company would go on to dominate the automobile industry. During the 1920s, half of all cars sold in the United States were manufactured by Ford Motor Company as well as 40% of all automobiles in Great Britain.
Through the years the Ford Motor Company continued its innovation by continuously bringing to market vehicles that had revolutionary new features. These included the Zephyr, the Lincoln Continental, Ford Falcon, Ford Mustang and the Ford Explorer. Unfortunately, while vehicles produced by this company often had exiting new features, they often had their share of reliability issues and mechanical problems. Below are some of the most note-worthy reliability issues concerning Ford models.
A common problem that seems to be inherent in a lot of Ford models is a problem with the speed control deactivation switch. Under the right circumstances these switches can overheat and leak causing the unit to catch fire. The unit may then need to be replaced at a projected cost of $120. This problem is found on a variety of models including, but not limited to, Ford pickups and sport utility vehicles.
Another problem that can be found on Ford models such as the Crown Victoria, Lincoln Mercury and Ford F450 trucks is a problem with the quick connect lines on the fuel filter. These quick connect lines can fail and cause damage to the fuel line which can cost anywhere between $120-$160 to have repaired.
These mechanical problems and reliability issues have been a concern for consumers in the past. That doesn’t have to be the case, however. Consumers can purchase a Ford Extended Warranty and not only save themselves a considerable amount of money but also a lot of needless worry.
