Each and everyone of us on the forum are passionate about our Ford but what is it about your current Ford that just does it for you? Ive currently got a Ford fiesta mk6 LX model which for those of you who dont know is pretty much a base model ie no air con or fancy gadgets etc. Ive customised it to my own liking and hopefully to some other peoples liking also but id still be quite happy even if I hadn't as through and through its a solid little car ive had very few problems with it and what I have had has been dealt with excellently by Ford. Now my car hasnt got the fancy New ecoboost engine but can still get down to stoke-on-Trent from ardrossan which is approximately 300 miles in just over half a tank which I thinks brilliant for an 03 plate 1.3 :) I know there's better (mostly more expensive) cars than Ford out there but ill be quite happy if I never own another make of car again just from my own personal experience dealing with Ford whenever ive had a problem Ford have bent over backwards to accomodate my needs and Ford general attention to detail and QC on their cars have realy impressed me.

Not sure of the attraction, I am always a fan of their driving / handling capabilities. from the 54 fiesta finesse, to my 55 Focus ZC and now the CMAX (lesser extent!) but I just love the quality of materials - its no Jag, but its not tacdky plastic cack all over the place.

 

They are easyish to modify, and certainly the help and support offered here is a benefit IMHO (the amount of guides and advice I have had over the years!) and to be honest, its just generally value for money. Its a decent quality manufacturing at a decent price! I have not had any problems with my local dealer (plenty of others though) and the insurance group / performance combinations make it affordable!

My 2003 focus was so comfy, when I had problems with my shoulder the kids though it funny when they found me asleep in the drivers seat. Now on a 2008 Fusion as Focus finally started knocking after 382k  - body work still great and she is in the garden just in case I cant get to sleep in bed - actually trying to decide what to do with her now life without a ford isn't an option

I love the way ford technicians look you in the eye while riding you,
On the first service due after your warranty expires.
"Here Comes The Train" "Here Comes The Train"
I loved it so much I tipped my local ford 2euro to purchase a CowBoy hat I won't be Rhode again
