I guess Ford FORCES me to buy the PRIUS van when it becomes available
I have been trying to encourage FORD to address fuel consumption rate and CO2 reduction with small displacement (under 2 Liter) Euro type turbo diesels for roughly FIVE (5) years.
It seems that has been a TOTAL WASTE of MY TIME.
I know that a fuel frugal 48 mpg combined (or better) C-Max/Grand C-Max with dual clutch transmission, cruise, and AC would be the BEST choice for my family (we have a 45 year old disabled daughter and my wife and I are beyond reirement ... need a MINI-van).
Further, your diesel powertrain would provide us the opportunity to be relatively nuetral in THERMAL EMISSIONS by allowing the opportunity to use bio diesel..
Since there has been no visible action (or word) on Ford's part to satisfy MY family's URGENT NEEDS ... I have given up HOPE! We can't wait much longer!!!
I intend to jump on the FIRST vehicle offered by ANYONE ... that meets OUR needs and we can afford (probably about $25k ... cash in the bank waiting). I say this with sadness because I sincerely believe that Ford's small block diesel would have been the BEST option.
It is simply NO LONGER worth my time to HOPE that Ford will DELIVER 50 mpg plus combined for my purchase ... as a US consumer.
Thanks any way for ... maybe reading my correspondence.
