After 2 decades of VW, Lexus and Mercedes, I do see build quality issues on this Ford that have thus far been foreign to me in new car ownership. I like the little thing, think the Ford-Euro genes provide a terrific design, but I suspect bloated UAW labor and American union work ethic have something to do with it. I sure hope not.

I bought Ford stock when it was $1.92 because I believe in Mulally. Made me a nice profit before I sold at $16, and what he's done with Ford made me commit to visiting a Ford dealership for my next car, which I did.

Either I'll be like the old guy blasting the Pinto by next year, or I'll be saying "buy Ford, not Benz." It's all up to how this thing holds up, and perhaps as important, how proactive Ford is in addressing my issues and making them right.

Are you listening Ford brass?
