My Accident
JUL
14

Driving home from work in October 2009 at about 10 PM another driver lost control of their car..spun and hit me head on on the highway. I was driving my 06 F150 and was very thankful I was. The airbag deployed ..the truck stopped..and I was terrified. It seemed so surreal. Everything after that seemed to happen in a second. A few days after the accident my family sent me pictures of my truck and the other vehicle..my truck had major front end damage but I had survived the accident . I believe the reason is because of my F150. The other vehicle…a complete total. When my husband and I bought our new Ford truck we had friends that made all the old Ford jokes about how they aren’t real trucks or how we could spend many days sitting on the side of the road with our new Ford truck. They aren’t laughing or making jokes anymore in fact…. they all agree that my F150 saved my life !!! There are alot of choices in trucks these days …but not a day goes by that I don’t think about that night and what could have been…had I not been in my F150. So thank you Ford !! Thank you for your dedication to quality engineering and safety features on your vehicles. My husband, my children and myself are forever loyal Ford customers.

Please make the key fob smaller in the vehicles like the ford fusion. It is simply too large! When inserted into the steering wheel, it sticks out too far and poses a safety hazard in an accident. Either make it smaller, or move it from the steering column. It sticks out far enough that I always feel I am going to hit it with my knee and break it.
