I have always bought American made vehicles, most of which have been Ford products. My first purchase was a hatchback Mustang which I kept for a long time and then my Mom drove it for years after. A few other models included a Galaxie and Taurus.
The Taurus was my first new car and I drove it until it had over 150,0000 miles.
When my son was in college and needed a reliable car I purchased a used Ford Explorer with just under 60,000 miles. I am still driving this car and it now has close to 180,000 miles. I sell real estate and use my car constantly. I still love this vehicle and laugh when I see some of the “other” brand’s commercials gloating over their miles.
I would buy a ford any time and still love the product and love buying made in America. Thank you Ford!
