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.
2009 Ford Territory steering column replacement
It is a common problem on the Territory and the Falcon and Ford will only supply the full column assembly. Crazy. It's out of warranty, so you will have trouble getting Ford to fix it at their cost, although you could try getting them to pay at least for part of the repairs. Other than that go to a Ford wrecker and have them install a used switch for you at a much reduced cost.

That is a really bad run, one that in other countries might have the car officially labeled a ‘lemon’. But as we don’t have ‘lemon’ laws the carmaker doesn’t have to replace the car or refund your money. But they are responsible for fixing it. I don’t believe you will have any success in getting the car replaced, but you could try pressing the dealer/Ford for an extended warranty.
Under the Australian Consumer Law introduced in January 2011, a consumer can request a refund or a replacement for persistent problems if the car doesn’t do the job it’s supposed to do.
