All Ford Family

I was the former passionate owner of a Mini Cooper and the administrator of the Chattanooga Scenic City Coopers Facebook page. I loved my Cooper; however that all changed very quickly just these last few days.
My wife and I have always supported Ford Motor Company. The very fact that this large company that helped build America stayed solvent and avoided a taxpayer bailout led us directly to purchase Ford products. My wife owns a 2012 Ford Focus SEL sedan (the actual car given away by American Idol contestant Lauren Alaina to her high school principle the 2011). Recently I had to travel for a job interview and I asked my wife if I could drive her car instead of my Mini. Two days and 20 road hours later, I was hooked. The very next day after I arrived back from that trip, I traded in the Cooper. I am now the proud owner of a 2012 Ford Focus SEL hatchback. Mine is blue and my wife’s is red. The both look great in the garage.
Oh and when we can’t load that big load in our Focus; That is not a problem. We also own an all original 1977 Ford F-100 long bed pickup truck with 82,000 miles.
So here is a picture of our Ford family. We named them Roxanne (red Focus), Tsunami (blue Focus), and Sanford (F-100 truck). Thank you for these excellent vehicles. We really love our Ford rides.

Most older people like larger cars than Toyota and Nissan that is why they have always chosen the Mercury Grand Marquis, the Crown Victoria and the Lincoln Town Cars. You have the "Baby Boomers" coming of age to buy these larger cars and you have discontinued making 2 of them and down sized the other one until it is no larger than a Toyota or Honda. People don't always like Suv's to get a larger car but they are Forced to buy them for the bigger experience. My Grandson has a wife and 3 children and they had to buy an Suv and a double cab pickup truck to carry their family around. You cannot put 3 car seats in the rear seat of a compact car comfortably. I am just absolutely frustrated with Ford that they have let the designers cut their product line down to 3 cars and Suv's, all compacts. I want to trade in my Mercury Grand Marquis LS (2007) for a newer car, but there is not a car on the market today the size of mine. I will not trade down in size. I will keep what I have until a car manufacturer wakes up and suddenly realizes they have "cut off their noses to spite there face". Ford Fusion, Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta will not support Ford Motor Company. Neither will the Ford F-150 that was once Motor Trend "Truck Of The Year" but not any more. What has happened to the Ford we all used to know. Is it gone forever? I sure hope not!!! Give us something bigger and better. Thank you, Ron Tuten
