I love my 2010 Ford Fusion. Second best car I ever owned.
They had better knock it off or it’ll be Ford in the Toyota seat.
I WILL NEVER EVER BUY A GM OR A CHRYSLER (AND I LOVE DODGE!) AS LONG AS IT IS PART OF A HUSSEIN-CONTROLLED GOVERNMENT. NEVER. DO YOU HEAR ME, OBAMA???
Ford had better keep an eye over their shoulder. That sound they here is the oncoming bus that is the government hit-squad.
I have two Ford Escapes. I love them both; good gas mileage, handle well, go through snow. I’d buy a third one.
Government Motors sez “This can’t stand! Bring on the Congressional Inquisition!”
"That sound they hear is ..."
the fingers are getting so old, they just don't want to cooperate anymore.
The attack on Toyota was suppose to help Government Motors, dang it, even though their cars seem to have the same problem as the Toyota’s.
Another Obama backfire.
A grand Jury has been looking into Ford matters. Andy Stern, presiding judge...........
I have a 2001 Focus and it has been a workhorse. I drove a 2010 Fusion rental car last December and I was impressed with both its handling and acceleration.
Marxists like driving Government Motor vehicles; dont they.
Maybe they should be called, Marxist Motor Company, with a slogan: Something you drive into the ground.
Yep—I just bought a 2010 Ford escape; already had an ‘07 Mercury Mariner!
Dammit I shoulda bought more FoMoCo shares when they were ONLY $3.01 a share! :-(!
Hey Howie, it’s some angry guy on the phone. He’s “aksin fo his money back”. - Howie Long’s wife, answering the phone today.
“Marxists like driving Government Motor vehicles; dont they.”
There is a bit of “compulsion” to buying the Government Motors and 0bama Motors vehicles; it’s what we all predicted last year and it is coming to fruition.
In January, our town purchased it’s police vehicles budgeted for 2010 (10 patrol cars, one SUV). Our cops usually drive Ford Crown Victorias, but not this year. We bought Dodge Magnums. Why? Because the Federal government is giving municipalities a kickback (our tax dollars) if they buy 0bama Motors crap. Because the kickback made 0bama Motors the lowest bidder, we were pretty much required to buy them.
That’s where your 0bama Motors production is going; government vehicles, thanks to a second subsidy from the federal government in addition to the one that kept them from closing their plants for good.

I did. :)
