In the summer of 2007, our business purchased 2 Ford E-250 Econoline Cargo Vans. One was totaled in the summer of 2011, with approximately 450,000 miles. It’s twin had it’s original spark plugs changed on 3/27/12 with 437,776 miles on them. This is the first time that the spark plugs have been changed on that vehicle and after 400,000+ miles, we thought it would be a good time to change them out. The plugs hardly had any wear and tear visible to the eye. We are amazed at the dependability that these spark plugs, as well as vehicle itself has given us over that last 5 years. We have been purchasing these cargo vans for commercial use and they take a beating. And because of the way they handle the day to day stresses of our business, we will continue to buy them. We have included a picture of the spark plugs to prove that these vehicles are trustworthy and a testament to the Ford name!

The changes Ford has made in the last few years have been very smart but I feel like there's room to play in the Mid-Size Sedan performance market. GM unveiled the Chevrolet SS a few months ago, however, I feel like they completely over did it and made a product people just can't afford. Ford could compete in this market and beat the competition by having svt modify the current Fusion. The 3.5L V6 ecoboost used in the V6 would be perfect. That kind of power in a smaller, lower to the ground, and lighter car would be a phenominal fit. Ford has done a good job with their I4 ecoboosts but I perfonally feel like the Fusion is more deserving of a V6 ecoboost like the Taurus. The Fusion certainly doesn't need 2 different I4 ecoboost engines. That just doesn't make any sense. Also, I'd love to see a return of a rwd sedan. I'd prefer to see it in the Taurus but I think it's currently too cramped and bulky. Maybe the next one. Like the Chevy SS, the performance based Fusion should be rwd. Ford had great success with rwd sedans in Australia, although they sported a beefier 5.0 V8. Many people prefer awd and fwd but I personally love the muscular and vintage style handling of rwd. If a performance Fusion such as this were to be made I'd like to see it wear a "GT" badge. "Sport" was alright but boring and simple. "ST" is cool but already has a reputation with Focus and Fiesta fwd compacts. Ford has a good recipe for the Fusion, but they're just not appealing to their performance fan base with the current model. The ecoboost I4s just aren't enough. Chaning the current Fusion to have a rwd option sound like a lot of work with probably little value in return. At the very least it would be nice to see the 3.5L V6 ecoobost engine available with other obvious performance upgrades.
