Service Car That Services!

Due to upkeep and maintenance cost along with a devastating life altering illness I found my self in a position of no longer being able to afford my 2000 Chevrolet lifted ZR2 S-10. I, with a bit of sadness sold my ride. In need of something dependable, long lasting, comfortable, and affordable I began my search for an ex-service Ford Crown Victoria. I found one 5 years newer than my truck. 50,000 less miles than my truck, for a low price of 30% less than I sold my truck for. An Air conditioning that works, a smoother and quieter ride, and very clean for an ex service car. My illness makes me noise sensitive , light sensitive, vibrations irritate me. I needed a ride that would be worry free for an extraordinary low price. Ford delivered on all my needs. There is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for my Crown Victoria and Ford. I feel blessed to have things work out for me and to actually improve on all things where my ride was concerned. I really need to double my MPG, and Ford has those available, yet not really in my budget. So we’ll worry about that another day.
I am hooked on Ford now, and if I can’t drive a Ford because of either not having one, or not having Gas for one, then I only pray for good enough health to ride my bicycle.

Your Ideas
I have a son who is currently deployed overseas in the U.S.Army. My son prior to departing for duty had saved his money for years  to buy his dream car, a 2013 Mustang GT. He makes every payment on this car without parents help. After he reported for duty, he has been deployed out of the country, his Mustang is parked in a garage, under a car cover. It gets started once a week and is driven about 70 miles a week to keep everything running right. It gets a bath and goes back under the cover. After looking at the car the other day,I came to the realization that while my son is deployed, his factory warranty the standard 3 year or 36000 mile is just wasting away. I then thought how many other military personnel would be affected with simular situations? Here is the idea, for service personnel who are deployed out of the United States that have a current factory warranty in effect, the warranty should be extended for the length of deployment. Deployments and or duty stations can easily be verified. The mileage part of the warranty would still apply, in the event the vehicle is driven by anyone other than the soldier. This would be a great marketing tool for Ford, and would actually be an honorabile act upon the company. Companies talk about discounts for troops and how they support them, but this is something that would benefit them, and could make the differance in a sale or not. This is truly a way to Thank these Men / Women for thier service to us citizens and our country !
