I have been very happy with my Ford products (1989 Mustang 5.0 and 1995
Windstar) since I purchased the Ford extended warrantee and it covered
significant costs (AC and transmission repair and new paint job on the
Mustang and New Transmission and New Engine on the Windstar). They are still
daily drivers with 100K on the Mustang and 200K on the Windstar.
I heard Bill Ford Jr. in a radio ad yesterday promoting Ford's commitment to
hybrids. Given the universally bad reviews the current Ford hybrid has
received in comparison to hybrid models from Toyota and Honda I think he
would have done better to take a page from the Hyundai book and instead
announce a renewed commitment to quality and a 10 year/100K warrantee on all
Ford vehicles. I own Ford stock :( and would like to purchase a Ford in the
future but the current lineup just doesn't have appeal or make economic
sense to me. I hope they are able to get their act together.
