Brett Settles I bought a 2007 Ford Fusion AWD new in the middle of 2008. Car has 86,000 miles and I have had to replace the Transmission, Driveshaft, Interior Door Handles, Leaking Sunroof. The Drivetrain issues started a 71,000. Before I owned a 2005 Ford Taurus and had to replace the entire rear end at 71,000 miles. All of this with no help from Ford Motor Credit, Suntrup Ford Westport, or Ford's corporate offices. Figured I would just throw that out there. Since I can't reach anyone who backs up your products at any of your official locations.

Shannon Marie Conley My future Ford. I just haven't me him yet. I can see his face and hear his voice in my mind, all the time. I know who he will be. A man of integrity. Not afraid of work or Love. He understands that I am a woman who needs to be treated as fine tuned as a Ford engine. Picking me up when I need him the most and taking me out for a ride. A warm summer evening, he will lay me down, on a freshly cut lawn with the head lights on. We will count every star in the sky until dawn. When he drives me home, in the early morning light, he will carry me in and kiss me, good night.

Shaye Collum By playing a video game, the Ford GT was my favorite car. I was stunned on how well it performed. After that, I looked it up. Found out that it was the best car to come outta you guys and it's based on the GT40. The GT will forever be by favorite car!

Anton Alexandrovich Koryagin At me isn't present and was never the car, but I have thought up design of the first models of cars Ford: Focus, КА, Сoncept - 1985, Mondeo-1996 -- these its models have been drawn for the first time by me in Russia - in 1996 -90 years. I don't say lies. Here it also is mine "rock and roll" =/

Tina In December of 1994, My dad bought a 1994 Ford E-150 Econoline conversion van. At the time, it already had 913 miles on it as it was minimally pre-used. He bought it, knowing it would protect us all (myself, 7 yrs old at the time, and my three siblings, 5yrs, 3yrs, and 6 months old, in case anything ever happened) He bought the van for my mom as he already had a '92 honda accord to get to and from work. My mom drove the van for ten years, and we did travel alot in it. It has taken us all over the U.S. and twice to California and back to Florida. It's got 200,000 miles on it and has been handed down to me. Now I've been driving The Van for eight years, I have a 2 year old son, and I'm turning 25 years old February 27th. When asked what I want for my birthday, I said: "I have everything I could possibly need right here. My son, my family, my friends, and the best, most reliable Van anyone could ever ask for. The van (aka Charlie) is still very alive and well. And someday, I'm going to teach my son how to drive in the van, like how I learned to drive in it when I was in middle school.

M Rick Richards I was bout to meet my future father in law and had mentioned to my future wife that it would be important to him that I'm a Ford man as he retired out of Ford after 35-40 years of service. She said no, it wont be that important... Well later that day she came up to me and said. "well I guess it IS important." He really liked my 1990 Lincoln Mark VII!

Nicole Tincher well I really don't know anything about cars or trucks but when the the engine in my trail brazer gave out in winter and i needed a car until it was fix i got a old 1999 ford crown Victoria and it saved my life i swear when i got on to an ice patch. for being what i first thought (a P.O.S) it was amazing. I am not the worlds best driver but some how when that car spun out and then stayed on the road and hit nothing. i couldn't believe it could handle so easily and i was able to stay in control of it. Also it hasn't even been half as much fuss as my other car. I love that car. kinda more then my bf... lol

Chris Singleton My love story began 15 years ago with a li'l black '80 F-150 Flareside pickup with 126,000 miles that was badly in need of a home and someone to love her. She was a plain jane Custom with no bling (not even door handles or mirrors). I put 300 + thousand miles on her. She then got a 351 4V Windsor heart transplant and a longshaft NP 435 gearbox, tilt, int. wipers, power windows/ locks, carpet and full XLT Lariat interior upgrade a set of silver factory wheels instead of the white ones. As time passed, I pulled her down and gave her a '08 F-150 Sonic Blue Effect paint job, '92 factory chrome wheels, and a '96 bench seat and a set of 3" chrome stacks and Flowmasters. This lady will be with me 'til death us do part!

John Holst My wife saw me in my 99 Ranger quad-cab in town before we met or knew each other. When we finally did meet and had our first date, it was in that 99 Ranger, which carried us on many dates, and to the beach where I proposed to her. An early anniversary present to her was a 2003 Escape, which she still drives, and has taken us all over the east coast on vacations, nights at the symphony, camping in the mountains, and all sorts of other great places. It helped us move into the home that we bought, and has been our vehicle of choice for pretty much everything we've done together. Between that Ranger I had many years ago, to our Escape, and now our new 2012 Focus, we've always had a Ford (or two), and we always will. We just celebrated our 8-year anniversary, and shortly after was when we got the new Focus. We love each other, and we love our Fords!

Chris Mulvaney Dan Fenlon unions suck, and Ford has companies in Brazil and Mexico for their import autos. This is why they did not need the bailout. I wouldn't of cared if G.M and Chrysler went under. G.M and Chrysler have been making junk for years and still do. I have owned Fords ever since I started driving and will own nothing but Fords from autos to tractors. Love my Fords. First. On. Race. Day.!

It worked to save the auto industry and Ford would have not had suppliers to continue in business with if America had not saved the rest of the auto industry.
