offer right hand drive cars for mail carriers
mail carriers need a right hand drive car or a car with a seat across the front.mail carriers across the country,outside of the city, are responsible for buying their own cars.the most popular autos are pre 08 ford taurus ,right hand drive subaru ,saturn and jeep cherokees.the only right hand drive vehicle available is the jeep wrangler which is not very popular.the saturns subarus ,jeep cherokees,taurus,have all been discontinued and are wearing out.full time mail carriers are given a car allowance where they can buy a new car every other year.ford does not have a current vehicle that is being used.it would be nice if ford offered a focus station wagon or escape in right hand drive.at least offer a seat across the front option on something.i believe the guaranteed market would prove profitable.

Kim rhd transit connect turbo-diesel 6spd auto is a great idea. Seems the postal rural carriers are getting more parcels every day. We don't need all the bells and whistles. Give us ac and heat. This could drop the cost considerably. We need something dependable and will hold up to constant stopping and going.

laura carlson I would like this I use a ford explorer and sit in the middle. The explorer has the room for everything. I get good gas milage. It keeps going in all weather. I have had 2 that were rebuildables so both with well over 200,000 miles have an explorer spoet tract now and it is well over 200,000 miles.

junior lee If ford don't want to make a vehicle for carriers they should make conversion kits after doing a study on type of vehicle carriers use.

M INMAN I stumbled on this site thinking maybe Ford was building a vehicle that would be usefull to a Rural Carrier looks like it was only a dream. At least Ford could do is build a simple auto with a bench front seat and a bullet proof auto tranny and heavy duty brakes . Mike Inman , USPS RURAL CARRIER..

Bette Dickenson 4wd, RHD and good gas mileage at an affordable, not premium price would give Ford many thousands of new customers. The jeep wranglers have terrible gas mileage, mechanical/electrical problems and the rhd model has been priced beyond the reach of most carriers who crunch the numbers. Who wants to spend all day, six days a week riding in a Wrangler AND pay over $30,000 for the privilege? NO ONE

Heather S there is an incredible need for something in the Ford Tranit small line that has a super transmission, possible 4WD, automatic, RHD.Decent heat and air would be a big plus too. We carriers buy our own vehicles and try to keep up with the maintenance in this economy. If Ford Motor Co. could sell this type of product to us at USPS fleet prices we would be there to help Ford and each and every rural customer we serve. Our package volume and pickup service has grown so much we need some serious thought when making our next purchase.

Heather S A RHD small 4WD sprinter with an awesome heavy duty transmission, good heat and air would really help the rural carriers, Our parcel volume has really increased and we need help! I think the USPS could benefit from these vehicles also. But what would be truly unheard of is having the rural carriers be able to purchase them at fleet pricing like the post office has. We would still be responsible for our upkeep thus saving the USPS from that expense. We would be safer and be able to buy American as we serve America.

Eric T I would definitly be intrested in a RHD drive vehicle from ford to deliver mail in. I currently use a ranger with a topper on the back but will be needing a new vehicle soon.

Postal Pierre Ford already builds a RHD Explorer chassis. You just can't buy one in the US.

Janet R Think it is a great idea, we carriers can really use a RHD vehicle, I got a 93 and 99 subaru with over 200,00 and 265,000 miles, needles to say, I need a new one.

Dustin N How about a RHD transit connect turbo-diesel 6spd auto or an 2.0 ecoboost with 6spd auto for us mail carriers. I would even buy a RHD supercrew F-150. How about a RHD 2011 Ford explorer 3.7L or Escape hybrid RHD. Hello Ford, wake up and tap this market.
