Do you mind answering a dumb question? When did Ford start billing a core charge on certain new parts? I have been buying Ford factory parts for years for many of my Ford cars and never saw that until now.
The core program has been around for a couple of years now. As of late, they have really expanded it, but it is still mainly on Bumper covers, headlights, and wheels. Their only intent is to ensure that they are scrapped rather than repaired and put back out into the market.
