For years us Aussies have enjoyed and loved American Ford engines. Its about time Ford America looses its pride and take alook at our 6cyl turbo engines for the states. The Falcon F6 turbo is an Awesome car. Im Ford V8's thru and thru, but your Mustangs etc are smaller than our Falcon and theory be should have less weight.. It would be a great base model pony car.

I've got a 99 Ford F150. Would love to buy a 2012 model, but just can't seem to turn loose of such a reliable vehicle... You lost a sale Ford! Your own fault, for building such a great truck! Maybe in another 12 years...

Have you ditched the MT-82 standard transmissions? I have a 2012 GT and mine is junk. I've owned over a dozen Fords in the last 20 yrs and now that I have an issue, like a whole lot of people with this trans, the customer relations people can't look me in the eye.

@ Billy Davis, V8's Means Less Driving, More Fuel Pumping

Tell me about it I own one of those wonderful 6.0 Powerstrokes, I cannot even get anyone to talk to me about it. Ford denies there is a problem, dealer told me never had an issue with it yet knew off the top of his head that it was up to 10K to fix. Guess they just think I am dumb 'cause I am a girl, could probably teach him a thing or two. Once again, please someone at Ford that knows something please message me so we can talk.

Put a heat extractor hood on the california special

Could you please offer an interior colour option with better colours?? Maybe in concert with Katzkin! For a few hundred more i would buy that option! Door inserts, seats and steering wheel, maybe in blue, green, etc.! Colours that Ford offered on the Mustang in the 60's and in the 80's! I remember a nice 1995 T-Bird my friend had in forest green interior, factory option!

Ford is the best in Texas! Like some have pointed out they didn't take the governments money. I've owned all types of vehicles, mercedes included and Ford is always there. I have four Ford shirts, one of which is for one of the Lightnings we used to own, and I wear them weekly. I am proud that my last name is Ford. My husband even wants to get a tatoo of a Ford symbol on his forearm. Ford isn't just the best in Texas, it's the best ever! :)

Ford builds quality cars. But they're machines and have warranties for a reason. Ford sometimes has a problem honoring that warranty and turns a lot of people to other brands. I'm one of that growing number of people who got scre---. Are you next? I'll never buy anothe one.
Cynthia Wallace 11/16/2011
Ford F-150...a tough truck yet ellegant enough for a lady! Love the 4 doors because there is lots of room for the back seat passenger. Has all the style and comfort a vehicle needs for anyone. Yet can haul like nobodies business!! One great tough truck!!
frank roque 11/16/2011
My Explorer; Mountain, Rain and Snow a piece of cake. Really Tough!!!!
David M Riley 11/16/2011
Test drove a BMW, then a Mustang V6, bought the Mustang, nuff said.
Dale Broadway 11/16/2011
My veins pump Ford blue blood and my heart is shaped like an oval. To say any American manufactures junk is wrong. Take a close look at toyota and their recalls over the last 2 yrs. Of course Ford is the BEST!! But Chrysler and GM deserve some kudoes for turning themselves around. They are second only to ford. I am proud that Ford didn't need a bail out too.
Billy Davis 11/16/2011
Putting a V-6 in a "muscle" car is like not putting guns on a warship! Get a V-8 dude
Ricky Carlson 11/16/2011
Rick Slusher, get a clue with your blind bias opinion! GM, Ford and Chrysler are making great vehicles. There are a lot of models from those three I would like to have. I'm a GM guy and a owner of a 2010 Camaro RS. The quality is great, head turner looks, alot of power from the 304HP V-6. It gets 20/30 mpg and i have got as high as 36 mpg ave on my way to work. But I don't go a round calling other makes junk. You don't become the world's largest automaker by making junk.

Years ago i owned a 79 f-150. I was visiting a friend who lived about a mile back in the woods from the road. He did not maintain his road to his home. Parts of it were more like a trail. It was severely rutted and had deep potholes that would tear the muffler off most cars. When I got home from my visit I was amazed to find my binoculars laying on top of my camper shell. I'd laid them up there and forgot about them. When I got to thinking about it I realized I had driven a mile of an extremely rough road and then another 18 MILES to my home with those binoculars laying up there. I loved my old 79 F-150. Very reliable and one of the smoothest riding trucks I ever owned. The truck that beats that one though is my 04 F-150 which I love as much as my old 79.
