: What gets me is how they continue to go 'cheap' and wonder if they spent, say $0.25 more, would these sensors last longer?

The theory has been put forth that Ford, in doing this NOW, is trying to make the public sour on it's relationship with Navistar. It's no news in Ford circles that Ford is trying very hard to sever it's relationship with Navistar before the phase-in of 2010 diesel emissions rules, in favor of an in-house design for the 2010 rules, especially in the "light duty" (i.e. sub-8600-lb GVWR) class of diesels.

The problem has been well-known for years, and hasn't really a "recall-worthy" issue for a long time.

In cost terms, there have been a few folks who go and buy the Navistar-branded version of the sensor (as opposed to the Ford-branded part) and have reported better longevity.
