Ford cars are crap and breakdown early.
All they have are gimmicks, it seems n
Funny, that is how I think of GMs. GM is a company run by marketing and bean counters that would dispose of engineering entirely if they could. I have had 3 Fords and have all done well by me.
I had a Chevrolet once and that was an absolute nightmare. It was constantly breaking down. It ate front brake pads every 10-15K miles and every time the brake pads were replaced there was also at least one CV boot found torn. Every time a CV boot tore, it was just a matter of time before the CV joint would start ticking and need to be replaced too. I was also poorly engineered for even basic maintenance. Getting to simple things like the oil filter and spark plugs were a complete PITA. After that disaster I moved into my first Ford and I was astounded at just how much easier everything was to get to and do basic maintenance. Never had a set of brake pads last less than 80k miles since then and haven’t had to replace a single CV joint either. I will never own a GM product again, ever.
My favorite cars though have been my Toyotas and Mazdas. I drive a Subaru now and while it is OK, I probably won’t get another one.
