My First Ford! My Best Ford!

In a neighborhood driven by Toyota/Honda (which I truly hate because of the compromises you have to make even at a higher price – trust me, I have driven hundreds of them, useless!), I was very particular in buying something different and since I already had a VW(non stop problems), the only thing I could possibly think of was a FORD (Chevys are not running deep anymore – lol !!). I had driven many Fords, especially 2010 Fusions at rentals and love the way they drive. Since I have a growing family, I bought a used 2005 Ford Escape XLT 4WD with 125,000 miles. I have put nearly 4000 miles in 2 months with “0″ problems. I am sure it can do over 200k easily but I am eagerly waiting for the direct injection Fusion to arrive… Love you FORD!! and I love the Henry Ford museum in Detroit – a must go place!!

I would really enjoy seeing a super duty with a "Manual transmission" option. My first vehical was a 1995 F-350 with a manual transmission (5 speed) and had a 7.3 liter diesel engine. When I towed trailers I felt that I had more control over my load with the manual transmission. But now that I'm looking to continue with the ford super duty line of truck I'm told that this option is not valid anymore. Yes, I have driven a super duty with an automatic transmission while hauling a load and I truly felt a lack of control over the trailer compared to that of my manual F-350. Also, in todays world a maual transmission might actually act as a anti theft device due to the fact that a lot of younger people now a days do not know how to drive a manual. I would just like to see a "manual transmission" option return to the consumer. Let them decide whats best for their needs. Thank you for your time.
