I read with interest the article about the Ford Everest catching fire while being test driven. The fact that your Carsguide tester Peter Barnwell rang Ford and said he thought the car had a problem and Ford said they would worry about it later I found the most interesting. As the previous owner of two Fords and two company Fords, all Falcons, I have had many problems and now have a Hyundai ix35 after I gave up. I would have bought one of the new Mustangs in a heartbeat if someone else was selling them.
Paul Wilson, email To be fair, Ford was on the phone to Peter quickly and have already concluded their investigation (see Confidential, p3).
