But that was my mistake. I think I'll take my hard earned money and go get more for it because I like a better lighting systems like HID's, lets you see farther at night and inclement weather, and I like auto dimming mirrors, like the one in my Explorer, hate the glare of big rigs behind me. So thanks for helping me see the error of my ways.
Maybe doing homework before you buy what you feel is an inferior product will help avoid those ways.

I hope you continue being content with less for more money lewisra, since you are quite happy with how Ford appoints their vehicles currently. And since they see you are quite happy, they will be sure to carry on this tradition with newer, more expensive versions of their vehicles with less appointments, just for you and people with your similar mind set.

Oh BTW, I did do my homework, but Ford switched up some things and I wasn't aware of it before I ordered the car. Their website had incorrect and misleading information about the 2013 model. I would consider a law suit, but since I can get rid of the vehicle with no expenditure of cash on my part, I wouldn't have a legal precedent for a case.

I will take the blame for your discontent, hopefully you feel better now.

Oh and I never said it was inferior, just that it is under equipped compared to its European brethren. That is where my argument lies. But like I said, you and yours keep giving in to the manufacturers and take less for more money. That way I'm sure you both will be very happy.

How'd the homework on DRL's work out? If it's on the internet, it must be true.

"I would consider a lawsuit" THAT"s what's wrong with America. THAT's why Ford needs to overcharge for less equipped vehicles. THAT's why......

I feel wonderful. I'm about to head out to return the car, pick up my check for my down payment, and then head off to the Nissan dealership and pick out an Altima. I'm just sorry no one could see the logic of my argument, and that you will continue to let Ford give you less car for your money, and be happy with it. But such is life.

I would only consider a lawsuit if I had grounds for one, which I don't and I clearly see that. What's WRONG with this country are people who pursue legal action without a basis for it. No Ford needs to charge more for less equipped vehicles is because they can get away with it, and that makes their share holders extremely happy with larger profits. I just choose not to be a part of them getting richer, and maybe more people should follow my example.

Only if they make a vehicle that I believe is truly a value for my money. But the way they are currently heading by giving all the technology abroad, I doubt that I'll be back.
