I have driven ford rear drive cars since 1957. They were always roomy dependable and served my needs.Today I am retired and use my 07 grand marquis taking long trips to visit grandchildren and this great country of ours. I can understand dropping the mercury line, if you were retaining the panther platform in the ford lineup. So many people buy the crown vic who are disabled. These cars are low to the ground easy to enter and exit. We dont want a truck type vechicle or suv that is high off the ground and difficult for people with hip back or leg problems. Your company is making a big mistake!
