Links from the Times for July 27: Previous coverage of suit against Ford

July

For the first time, a Florida court has found validity in decades of complaints by drivers that faulty electronics can cause their cars to rocket out of control. The vehicle on trial in Bushnell was a 1991 Ford Aerostar, a clunker with 159,000 miles on it that cost Ralph and Peggy Stimpson $300 in 1999. It’s the vehicle that made Peggy Stimpson, 61, a quadriplegic and put her in a power wheelchair that she now steers every day.
