Finally an American company wins
Just ordinary maintenance, that was it. Oh right, one used transmission installation at $950. But that's not usual for a car with that many miles. The motors were never apart. Nothing fell off. They were safe enough and fuel efficient enough. Parts are cheap. Mechanics understand them.
That's a good experience.
Me, I like Toyota, but they are overpriced and overrated all-in-all.
I have a 2012 Focus SEL with over 90,000 miles...YES, over 90K and I abuse it, never washed it by hand, oil changes every six months no matter how many miles I drive, sometimes more than12K between changes and this thing is STILL driving amazing!!! I can't believe it... The tranny is starting to act a little funny when cold between 2nd and 4th gears but I can't believe the neglect and abuse this car has taken and STILL actually looks and drives GOOD...better than ANY other car would have, that's for sure...lol THANKS FORD
2015 Ford Mustang Premium GT coming soon to my garage...Now that my kids are older, I'll actually take care of this one lol
My last five new have all been Fords and I will now try to keep this one until one of us die,, me, or it.
Why, prices are just way to high on anything new that is worth buying.
I like Ford which explains why I now own two Fords, a 1997 Ford Ranger and a 2011 Ford Fiesta. I owned a 2002 Buick Century and traded it for the newer Fiesta. I will never buy GM again because the Buick was trouble. The 3.i engine with leaking gaskets was what this Buick had and GM insulted me by offering me $50 to settle on the bad gaskets, which I had to repair. This wasn't the only problems I had with the Buick too. The multi function light dimmer switch failed leaving me without headlight at 55mph. That switch cost me over $650 to replace.
The Ranger is a manual with a 4 cylinder engine and you can't beat this truck for gas mileage for that year. The Fiesta gets anywhere from 40 to 45 mpg depending on how you drive it and if you use the air conditioner. Just in gas mileage from the Buick to the Fiesta I save tons money on gas. The funny is the Ranger is better than the Buick on gas.
Glad to see Ford won because American is best although many Fords are less American than many Toyotas nowadays..
GM has had more calls recalled this year than they have sold...
The taxpayers got the raw bone when we bailed out this POS company.
I love my Fords, owned them for years however some of the mechanics aren't so bright.
2013 F150 Crew, bumped the side of the garage and broke the blinker on the mirror, they could not find the blinker in stock at all, told me I had to replace the whole mirror at $647.80...NO
Bought the blinker online from A1 Auto, changed it myself, cost 37 bucks.
Next...my airbag light keeps coming on, been back to the dealer 3 times for this...sigh, it came back on again 2 days ago while it was at the dealer for a oil change. They told me to bring it back another day so they could tear the dash apart!
I do like it though, I just hope it lasts, this is my last one.
Wife has a 2014 Taurus...she loves it.
As a master mechanic I can say all vehicles
have there problems but Ford is my favorite.

[BRIEFING.COM] The stock market ended the Tuesday session on a lower note after generally upbeat earnings took the back seat to geopolitical concerns. The S&P 500 (-0.5%) and Nasdaq Composite (-0.1%) ended on their lows, while the Russell 2000 (+0.3%) displayed relative strength.
Once again, market participants were focused on quarterly reports in the early going, but geopolitical worries overshadowed the impact of mostly better than expected earnings. Specifically, equities ... More
