Maybe you should try making some decent cars. Naw... just trucks and SUVs and Mustangs.

Lol, those are the only semi-decent things that have come out from Ford. All the sedans and smaller cars they borrowed from their euro divisions have been junk, especially anything with an auto trans.

Well, in all fairness the US goes through presidents waaay too slowly.  Should be more one term presidents.

Who would associate the name Ford with short presidencies?

Yeah, the last few years haven't been too good for Ford with reliability.

You touched on the PowerShift transmission.  I remember at least a few engine recalls, at least one being a fire hazard.  There were also two door latch recalls: one due to a chintzy plastic part breaking, and a second one because some of the replacement parts were suspect.  What else am I missing?

Which is why I said TRY making some decent cars.

Ford lost me as a customer when they killed off the Ranger compact pickup, mindlessly monkey-see-monkey-doing GM. Now the Ranger is a medium size truck. Those are sporks. They try to be two things, but are neither.
