I am now aware that the Ford motor company fit sub-standard parts to their diesel motor vehicles. This can be a health & safety hazard to the driver. I also know that I threatened Ford with legal action if this problem caused a health & safety issue to my family, and now it has done. Ford are aware of a safety issue with their faulty injectors, and have done nothing about it. In the first instance, I am making people aware in case they wish to make their own claims against this fraudeulent company of thugs.
