This Car Saved My Life
JAN
21

In early November 2013 I too delivery of a 2014 Ford Fusion Titanium (the car pictured).  I loved this car, having put on 2,000 miles within weeks.

On December 17, 2013, the car was in a very bad accident.  The car absorbed an impact by another car that spun out of control on an ice covered bridge.  The car protected me and, most likely saved my life.  The onboard technology sensed the impact and immediately dialed “911″, which given the fact I was on a two lane bridge, in a snow storm, and incapacited, was critical.  The car also acted to aborb the energy from the crash, not only with an air bag deployment, but also by preserving the space around me.  The car was totaled, but I was able to walk away from the accident. 

I orderded a new car on Dec. 31.  I told my car dealer that I wished to have another car, exactly like the one I purchased.  I did not hesitate one second regarding that decision. 

I wanted to write this as I appreciate the engineering and workmanship of Ford, and consider this to have saved my life.

We would love to be able to watch and or Follow our new Edge being built online here in Orlando, FL. On January 22, 2014 we were struck by a drunk driver, hitting us on the passenger side back door where our 20 month old was sitting in his car seat. Because of the way the Edge was built it saved our son. I am including proof of how well our Edge was built and how wonderful the way She (Our Edge A.K.A Blue) held up. The drunk driver that slammed into us also decided to Run not caring if he hurt or killed anyone. Drunk driver was tracked down by a witness but was not arrested.Because of the way our 2013 Ford Edge Limited held up and did in fact keep all of Her passengers Safe My wife and I have decided to induct another 2014 Ford Edge Limited with EcoBoost Ruby Red into our family. And will remain Ford Customer's for Life.Thank You So Much FordJayson, Summer, Zachary, & Zander.
