I got a recall notice for my 1995 FORD Explorer? What is this all about? Is it a true problem or a government implant of a vehicle control mechanism? Signed: Still a "free" American Gal.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube If it is about your cruise control there is a recall because of possible fire. Check with your dealer for details

Judy Curry, Co-Founder and Vice President of Marketing at Currys Auto Service This sounds like an alien plot��or your Explorer really has a safety recall open on it and you should get it checked out. It should be done at no cost to you unless it is aliens and then you�re on your own! I would do some research online and then call the the dealer and see what they say. looks like there's some headlight recalls and a speed control switch. check out: http://www.motortrend.com/cars/1995/ford/explorer/recalls/index.html or: CONTACT FORD AT 1-888-222-2751 Independent shops can also do the recall - free of charge. Good luck!

Laurie Sarno, Co-Owner at Super Girls Auto Hello S B B - Most recalls are safety issues- on a OBD1 system( that your car has)- it is exceedingly difficult to plant anything on the vehicle - if you are concerned about the recall check with your Ford dealer to find the exact purpose of the recall- thanks Super Girls Auto.

Suzanne Grego, Technician at City of Philadelphia Fleet Management S.B.B Recalls are actually very common to receive from vehicle manufacturers. After certain makes and models have been in use, reoccurring problems tend to surface that the engineers sometimes overlooked in the making of the vehicle. It can be as simple as a knob falling off or as major as a tire falling apart. Luckily, for the most part, recalls are usually pretty simple repairs and many times the customer did not even know anything needed to be corrected in the first place.
