Best First Car
JUN
14

My parents bought the 2004 ford explorer new, my mom worked for ford and she is very picky about her cars, she didn’t like the same green,white,etc colors, she waited for this blue to come out and got the very first one, its been with us since, 3 accidents and we have only replaced one part, a ball joint. This ford is tough, just over 105,000 miles so its just broken in. This car is a very dependable and safe car, the one thing i do plan to do is add an aftermarket sunroof, my next car will be a ford focus or escape, my explorer also has the best stock audio , even better than my dads $50.000 volvo, we will buy another ford, our 3rd in the family

Many of us are single dog "people/parents".  To keep our best friends safe while we run in to go to the bathroom or buy a dozen eggs, I propose the new solar technology be routed, as an option, to a multiply-redundant environmental control system for our sweet animals in the car.  This system would use the new solar and stored battery Ford technology as source energy for parked environmental control, to maintain the "cabin" temperature between 32 and 72F.  This system would be multiply-redundant to protect our best friends and the Ford company from harm or lawsuit.  It would include an alert system for the vehicle operator via cell, for any compromise of the system (i.e., first-level system failure) so that they could return to the vehicle to ensure the health and well-being of their companions.  Not all of us have the luxury of "escorts", but we adore our animals and children.  Let Ford be the parked car's best friend.
