Happy Mother’s Day, Moms with Fords!
MAY
07

You know that here at The Ford Story, we always want to hear your stories, ideas and thoughts on everything related to Ford vehicles, including how you use yours and why what you drive suits your lifestyle. In honor of Mother’s Day, we asked mothers on the Ford Facebook page what they love about their Ford and how their lives have been made easier as a result. We have to say, we thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone’s entertaining, heartwarming and honest stories, and smiled at the memories of previous Ford vehicles in your life! Thank you all for sharing with us! It was difficult to pick our top 10 favorites, but here they are. And to all the moms out there, have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Melissa Riner: I love my 2008 Taurus! In the kiddie pick-up line at school I feel like I’m in a luxury car in the middle of mini-van hell! Plus, I never worry about snow days because I know my car will get me wherever I need to go!

Georgann Perry: I have my Ford Freestyle when I have to be “grandma” to haul everyone around, and my Mustang GT when I want to be that 16 yr old girl who first fell in love with Mustang’s.

Susan Rathfelder: My 2009 ford E250 van makes it possible for me to transport my 20 y/o son who has a form of Muscular Dystrophy. Choosing a vehicle to transport him and his 340 pound power chair was a time consuming task, but we are so happy with our van wi…th it’s 6-inch lowered floor and platform lift. Our first family trip was to Denver for a conference and then home via the Grand Canyon. It more than meet the challenge. This van has given our son the freedom he needs.

Stephanie St Laurent: I love my Ford from top to bottom and front to rear! I have a *sharp* 2006 Ford Mustang GT….my kids love it when I drive them to school! I have the coolest Mom mobile in town!

Lisa Polluconi Slagle: I LOVE my 2010 Flex (nickname:Felix). Thanks to Felix, all of the kids want to ride with me on class fieldtrips! The other parents have their noses out-of-joint. Not my fault I drivest the coolest vehicle!

Kathie Drury: Well being newly divorced my ex got the 2010 Taurus which made me cry. But I bought a new Fusion so Mommas happy again. Ford is the only way to go.

Tammy Wright: Three years ago my husband got me my 03 GT conv.Mustang You ask how does it make my life easier? It gets me away from my kids when I go to car shows!

Tracey Parks: As a mom, my first concern is safety. My daughter drives a 2010 mustang. I appreciate your sync system. It allows my daughter to talk safely on her cell phone while not distracting her from the road. Thanks, Ford, for making my daughter’s daily drive a safer one.

Kay Lang: Well let’s see-it all started with my grandpa’s old ford&i was hooked…from my 1st Ford Mustang to my present Ford exolorer&all the MANY FORDS in-between because that’s all I will drive&i really LOVE FORDS…my explorer gets me thru any kind if weatger&its fun to drive!!!

Suzanne Phegley: My 03 expedition is my other kid! Just like my 2 boys I have to feed her and she needs a bath about everyday! And once in awhile she needs some new shoes but she always makes me smile when heads turn when she is acting good!! Thanks to everyone at FORD for making such a great SUV.

Ramon Cardona Good piece. And to all moms, please turn signals appropriately. Female USA drivers, as a general rule, do not use turn signals when driving. All states require turn signals for lane changes, for turns, entry/exits to freeways. And learn to use them early enough. Once in the turning lane it is too late. The whole idea is to alert drivers ahead, behind and even on the side, of your intentions. OK? THIS IS A SAFETY ITEM. It is essential for safe driving. And please remember, the number cause of death and injury of children in the USA are car wrecks. Vehicles and car safety seats need to have safe drivers at the wheel. And that means staying off the cell phones!! while driving. Just drive, please. Talk when you get home, office or whatever your driving to. Many thanks.

Carl Salacuse As a regional manager for a local restaurant company I do a lot of driving. In early 2006 I bought my 2002 Ford Focus with about 50,000 miles on it. Well today it turned over 231,000 miles. Quite a milestone if you ask me. And after filling up this afternoon and calculating milage I'm still getting about 32 mpg. Not too bad for a "high milage car". In the past 5 years I have gone through 4 sets of tires, 2 O2 sensors, an EGR valve, 2 serpintine belts, and nothing else. No brake or clutch replacements, I own a 5 speed manual, and no other major work, just an AC recharge about 2 years ago. Living in the south AC in a must! If I hadnt hit a dear 3 months ago the body would be in great shape as well, just a minor ding on the front left fender. I change the oil every 3000 to 4000 miles and thats about it. Even my machanic laughs when he sees the milage. It runs great and now my wife and I are looking to possibly leasing a Focus for her.I told myself that I would drive my Ford Focus until it dies. By the looks of things it may very well out live me!Yes, I am a very happy Ford Focus owner.Just wanted you to know that.And by the way, I'm convinced your profits are where they are because you took no part in the bail out money that other companys took advantage of! Great job Ford guys! Thanks. Sincerely Carl Salacuse Atlanta Ga

Malini Aree I drive an expedition (The "truck"). The kids won't ride with their dad(who drives an edge), if given a choice. I have 3 little one's, The truck has rear entertainment and takes all the abuse from food, drinks, tantrums and still there's room for hockey bags, camping gear and anything you can think of. We all love it and couldn't do without it.

Leah Hurst Hmm, where do I start? My 1988 Aerostar carried Girl Scouts to camp, basketball & volleyball teams to victory (&a few losses), as did my 1993 Aerostar! Both Aersostars & my 1998 Windstar were the vehicles that carried my family to many camping adventures, as well as about 15 trips from Cleveland to Ft. Myers, Fla., and back. One of the most memorable trips was to visit the Statue of Liberty in the summer of 2001, where we got some spectacular photos of the the New York skyline, which still included the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

Mel Hons I have always owned a ford. My first was a 1990 Ford Escort..which totally irritated my parents, they were chevy/mopar fans. This Ford Edge has been the best by far. The kids have enough room without kicking my seats, they have cup holders all over and the MyFord Touch system & Sync have been the best by far. Thank You Ford for featuring my picture that my daughter took of me and for making my life easier while hauling kids around. They love the fact that "Mom" has a COOL vehicle now.
