My F-150 Saved My Life

On 02/27/12 I was on my way home from work when an SUV (not a Ford) pulled out in front of me in my 94 Ford F-150. I had no time to do anything except hit the brakes and unable to get Oh Lord out before impact. Was one of the most horrible feelings I have ever had. When it was all over I couldn’t believe I wasn’t injured only adrenaline going wild. Read more...

Suicide Doors

With Ford making another revision for the 2014-2015 Ford Mustang (Or so I hear). It'd be a wise idea to make a change in the way people get in and out of their vehicle. I can't say how many times I've exited and entered my mustang with friends in the back, only to look at my F-150 and say, man... suicide doors would be great here - it'd solve a lot of problems.

@Randy Go figure, you blame the engineers for designing a system you obviously don't know how to use, and then you get pissed at Ford for "service" when in fact that's a dealer issue. And all over a broken defroster, which makes the car "unsafe" I don't buy it.
Tony Portelli 03/10/2012
Randy there vare FORDS on this earth to keep all you whingers from driving them, so get out out!
J.w. Crouch 03/09/2012
My dealer left me waiting for my car because they were not paying attention to what was going on in the service deparment.
Avery Confer 03/09/2012
thats a dealer fault not a company fault sir or ma'am. ford actually got an award for most ethical company for the last 2 years including this year. a claim gm and dodge cant make. im sure if ford knew they would not be proud of the actions of your dealership.
Thomas Tickle 03/09/2012
just because your dealership sucks doesn't mean they all do!

good day

randy go to another dealer AND go on a road test with a tech and show them the problem and what it is doing,sometimes communication like this is the best. there may be a legit issue or it may be a characteristic of the car,or have them compare to a like car. don't let some thing like this get you down on this car it may be simple fix. hope this helps

Would be much happier if Ford was'nt trying to egt out of honboring their warranty on my 2011 Ford Focus that I purchased in Nov of 2011. I't don't defrost right, I get a v shape just to the left of the driver. I've done nothing but get the runaround from Ford and my local dealer. It's unsafe and can cause a deadly accident. I have to stop and scrape it off if the elements are bad and were getting blowing snow and cold. A genius of af an engineer suggested they put a remote starter on so I could run it for a half hour begore driving it (GAS at 4 a gallon, thats real brilliant and not to mention it still does it when you drive). Guess I'm going to have to go see a lawyer just to protect myself in case I get in a deadly accident. I've owned 3 new Windstars, 2 new f-150's and this Focuse, never again will I buy Ford because of their service. It's sad they treat loyal customers like this.
