Angry You drive a Focus? oh I would never buy a Ford....

How many times have you heard this? People are so dumb, I have my wagon for 4 years now and I only had few problems with it, it's funny all problem are not mechanical related. What people don't know is that the Focus is a UK engineering and even if it was an American design I still would buy it. Same goes to other Fords like the totally cool F-150, Thunderbird, Mustangs and others! Ignorant people!

i get this all the time, the other day my girlfriend was yelling at me for wanting to get a vortech. She said it's a piece of shit focus, why do you want to put all this money into a car that isn't that good? How many recalls has it had?

I told her that this one one of the best cars you could own, 1st because they own up to their problems and fix them, instead of letting it go and making people pay to have these things fixed. 2nd, it is german engineering influenced, which to the best of my knowledge... German's make a damn fine car ("And the love David Hasselhoff")
Then we didn't talk for about two hours.........
I hate when people are like that.

I would buy another one if I had the extra cash!!!

I never heard "Oh you drive a Focus" but I've heard "oh I'd never own/buy a Ford."

Gotta agree..
I too use to dislike Ford. My wife had an 87 Ford Escort when we met and I was under that hood every weekend trying to get it to run dependably. Then in 94 we bought a brand new Escort wagon and it ran 127K miles before it needed its FIRST repair. Since then we have had 2 Explorers,currently have an 02 that was purchased brand new, and now I just bought a used 02 SVTF. Ford has come a long way and I have no problem correcting all these A holes on the quality that Ford has put into there cars. YES,many years ago Fords were undependable BUT all that has changed and OUR beloved Focus has been in the top TEN every year since it went into production. GREAT JOB FORD !!!!!
Peace to all :)
