My opinion but no way they are going to stop making new cars to fix those alteady made. They will blend them back in..you have a production process designed to make a complete care and there are a lot of people and processes supporting that production process...they will not idle 98% of the process to fix one off problems.
Im thinking along the same lines as you in terms of fixing the problem quickly and removing the issue from the newly built cars.Unfortunatly that may be the case. The earlier orders seems to be the ones being held up.
Really sorry for all them guy's.
But I agree, Ford will not stop producing cars, if they fround a small problem, they more then likly already adjusted the production line and remove the mess-up.
My best guess anyway, who the heck knows.,..
