My First Ford
JAN
28

I’ve always bought foreign cars, never would buy anything produced by any domestic manufacturer, until one day while I was helping my girlfriends mom shop for a car (a 2010 Fusion Hybrid), I fell in love with the Fiesta. I cant explain what was going on in my head but I needless to say I bought one. Its a 2012 SES Hatchback, with pretty much every bell and whistle you could want. I couldn’t be happier with the car, the fuel economy is great and while not overly powerful, it will hold its own on the interstate and in town. The SYNC system is great, helps keep my attention on the road and not fumbling with my phone while driving. In all, its a great car and Ford has won over this die-hard foreign car fan. Thanks Ford!

I will be purchasing a new pickup truck in the next year or two. I admire what you are doing with the aluminum body F-150 to save weight. However, you are still going to be beaten on fuel economy by the Chrysler/Dodge/Ram D1500 Ecodiesel. Their diesel is a European sourced V6 engine and with the 240 hp and 420 lb ft of torque and will be excellent at both fuel economy and towing. I would suggest you look at sourcing the Steyr manufactured 3.0 liter inline 6 cylinder diesel Bmw uses in their 335d diesel car for adding a diesel option on the F150. It beats the Ram in both hp and torque with 265 hp and 425 lb ft torque. Mounted in your 700 lb lighter F150 you would be the undisputed fuel economy champ for light duty pickups and it would be a killer tow vehicle. I would buy one. Think about it and run it by Alan Mulally. My first Ford pickup was a 1962, my last one was a 1973 model. Both of them got about 10 mpg. I'd like to buy another one but give me a reason to buy one. Thank you for your time. . . Bohn F
