I have a 1995 ford explorer with 123,000 miles on it. It is a wonderful auto. I was just into the Ford dealer and was advised that my left and right SWAY BARS both need replaced. I checked on line and found they were recalled for this? Will Ford pay for this replacement??

Do you drive a 1995 FORD EXPLORER?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
