I have primarily riven Ford products
for the last 34-plus years (25 total
vehicles). I am increasingly
disappointed in the crap Ford provides.
I rebuilt the ac twice before 40k
miles. The 5-speed auto tranny slips in
low gear, the intermittent wipers work
when they want to and it won't stay in
4 wheel drive mode. This vehicle is 5
years old and has less than 50k miles,
has never been abused and I am a self-
admitted maintenance nut. On top of all
of this, throw in those wonderful self-
destructive Firestone Wilderness AT
tires (for which I never received the
promised reimbursment from Ford) and
you know why I currently drive a Nissan!
I have so many problems I wouldn't know
where to start. How about building
vehicles with the kind of quality that
the Europeans and Japanese have
exhibited for years?
