In response to the "This Makes Me Sad About Ford" video, I for one would NOT buy any Ford model. First of all, Fords are death traps. Just look at their history (1999 Explorer, the Pinto, today's Fords, etc...). My family used to own a Ford product when I was younger and I remember the nightmare we've experienced with it. One night, while on a road trip to Atlantic City, we were driving on the highway when the electronics in the vehicle just simply failed, affecting the transmission in particular, resulting in us having to coast off of the New Jersey Turnpike due to the fact that we were unable to accelerate. Thankfully we didn't get rear-ended by that semi that was following us at the time. I remember another scenario where the serpentine belt snapped on the vehicle, and thank's to Ford's engineering design, we lost steering and cooling and were thus left stranded. The hell does not stop there. Just research magnitude of safety issues Ford's have and have had over the years, and how they are known for lying to their customers and weaseling their way out of fixing these issues and you'll agree that Ford is both unsafe and untrustworthy. Ford is also known for destroying HISTORIC ICONS, simply for the sake of making a profit. Jaguar = once a classic example of a sought after British sports car, was reduced to nothing more than a rebadged Ford, a truly pathetic excuse for a luxury automobile under the Ford ownership. Land Rover = proof to the world that England can produce an off-roader that was every bit as capable off-road as the Jeep, reduced to one of the worst piles of junk you'll ever see in this industry THANKS TO FORD. Volvo = once one of the safest and most well-build vehicles you could buy, the company that proved that you could be both sensible and fun, had been reduced to rolling piles of junk under the Ford ownership with a piteous attempt to challenge the likes of "the all-mighty" Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Aston Martin, once James Bond's car of choice, but I doubt Mr. Bond would EVER have chosen one if he had known that Astons under the Ford era no longer had that classic Aston V12, but instead two Ford 6-cylinder engines welded together. Ford has sold out on these icons simply for the sake of making a dollar. Therefore I would not buy this or any other Ford. If I were all of you, I would listen to Scotty and buy a Toyota. If I had known of him 15 years ago, that's exactly what we would have bought.
