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!

Your Ideas
Many more women and young drivers would prefer to drive trucks. Consider the amount of driving mothers (work, hockey-other sports, medical, shopping, and etc.) and most people living in northern and rural areas must do,  especially when travelling to other centres or larger centres. This usually means tens of thousands of kms per year. Driving a full-sized truck may not be a sound financial investment when one considers the price of gas in conjunction with number of km driven per year. Many women instead choose SUVs when they would rather be driving a truck. My idea is to take the fantastic Ford truck and design (bring back) a midsize truck with a performance motor which consumes less gas but provides power and reliability including pulling power for those such as farmers or even campers. This will meet the needs of all those who find a full size truck does not fit their budget or is excessive. I live in Northern Canada and purchased an Edge in June, parked it until the end of August, and between then and now March 6, have clocked approximately 30,000 km. Produce this truck and I'll try it out for you, but give us a mid-sized truck, (not a small truck like the Ranger) something we can feel safe in particularly since our roads are driven mostly by full sized trucks and 18 wheelers.
