Why Not A Ford

When I graduated college back in 77, I had no credit. I worked for a company that loaned me money to buy my first car, a Mercury Comet. I think it was a 77 too. I had no credit, nor money, no dealer would even help. My older brother sold cars in another state and he said come up here and I will help you. Well, I got a metallic gray Ford Ranger. I loved that truck. Then traded for a Red Ranger, kept for 11 years. Then a few Tauruss. Then a friend knew I was needing a new vehicle and that I loved green. She found me a KiWi green Focus. I didn’t like at first, but I do now. She has since passed away and I just can’t imagine getting rid of it, not for now anyway. She wanted the new Ford Taurus, but deceased before being able to get one. Ford has always been by vehicle of choice.

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
