I just wanted to express my opinion about my 1997 Ford Ranger. This truck has 150,000 miles on it. It has been to the garage only for tires, oil changes, and once for a new battery. This truck has no rust, everything works, and it runs like new. That surely has something to say about Ford quality!!! I look around and I see many trucks, and it amazes me when I look at Chevy’s that are much newer than my Ford, that simply are falling apart!!! I swear by Ford, and that will always be my vehicle of choice, as long as they keep putting out quality!! In these times with gas prices on rise, I can’t imagine having repair bills too. Thanks Ford!!

jennifer nein I have a 1995 Ranger with over 260k miles she's been from texas to oregon over several mountain ranges and still no major issues in four years. She's used every night as a spotter truck for a repo company and still outlasts full size trucks... never has a better line of trucks been made by far...

I chose Ford because I respect the company, the brand and choosing to be fiscally responsible. I love my Ford Taurus SHO. It's an amazing car to drive, an absolute testament to your engineering capability.  The current SYNC Infotainment system offered across the Ford line is not representative of the Ford Brand quality I paid for with the purchase of my vehicle. It is, in fact, the most hated aspect of my vehicle. What started out as a potential asset has, over time, eroded any support or fondness I have for this aspect of my Ford product.  Most Ford customers, myself included, are making a significant investment when purchasing a vehicle. It is not a purchase made lightly, nor one for the short term. Cars & Trucks are not a disposable commodity like the annual or bi-annual smartphone, tablet and computer market.  The Automobile paradigm and Technology paradigm you wish to incorporate are at odds. Your customers need open based solutions that work with today's technology. Third party after market upgrades are all that gone, they have been squeezed out over the years by proprietary and complex systems like Ford's SYNC. Ford, please strongly consider offering your customers dealer installed upgrade paths for vehicle infotainment systems. It will retain your customers, create good will and keep your vehicle offerings current with the times, long after their purchase. I for one would happy invest hundreds if not thousands of dollars annually to keep my infotainment system (and stereo) current with today's technology trends.
