I am indebted to you for helping me out with parts for my Ford Territory F6X. Still, I fear Ford Australia and GM- Holden will not be able to support the last of their models for the 10-year parts period. I am also afraid Consumer Affairs will be a toothless tiger in the fight for spare parts.
I believe the three local makers will maintain their commitment to owners long after they stop manufacturing. In your case, the credit goes to Ford's Stephen Kruk who was straight onto the problem.
