Walking Away

On Sept 27, 2010 my daugher (16) was a passenger of a Ford Ranger, driven by a (18) year old female, was involved in a HORRIBLE accident. According to the State of Indiana Police department at the ER, the girls should of never walked away from this accident alive. The girls was on a country road and was traveling a little above the speed limit, they lost control of the truck on a corner and after straighting back out was in the wrong lane, they tried to get back into the right lane, went down into a ditch, the front left corner took a nice hit to the first tree before sailing into the air and hitting a second tree 4 ft in the air. The Passenger side of the truck was pretty much crushed and the truck broke behind the cab when it fell out of the tree. After 7 hrs in the ER, both girls walked away from this truck with minor injuries, stiches and some bruises. This TRUCK SAVED THE LIFE OF BOTH GIRLS.

GM, just presented a new mid sized truck to the market place. Why, oh why, hasn't Ford considered the same. I had a 2001 Ranger that I sold to a friend that now has almost 200,000 miles with minor maintenance and repairs. I have read that this segment, according to Ford, is not profitable. Ford, I believe is missing the fact that there is a considerable market for this type of vehicle, and least of not which would be a segway to larger trucks for the Ford loyalists. I wish I could by a new Ranger, you sell many outside the states that are larger than the one I had, but not as big as the F-150. Don't let GM or Toyota take what could be a  core customer and  walk away from your products. Loyality is the key to success.
