Blanche, The Feisty Ford!

I just wanted to thank Ford for constructing such a cost effective and well made vehicle! My family has a 1996 Ford Explorer (yes, 1996) with over 300,000 miles on it! We call the truck “Blanche” because lilke the Golden Girl on TV, she’s older but still feisty!

This past year, we decided to trade in my husband’s newer truck (not a Ford, not worth mentioning!) in order to get a 2010 Expedition. We love to drive the new truck on long road trips since there is more room for our daughter and her friendsto spread out, but know that we can always count on Blanche to get us where we need to go. Our 9 year old daughter fully expects to be driving Blanche to school in 7 years and I truly believe that is a distinct possibility!

In this economy, it is refreshing to know that when you need to make a big purchase, like a new automobile, you can count on buying a Ford that will last!
