I feel they have forgotten about us laminge. Especially the people who had faith in all the BA hype and followed the auto web daily to see what was going on when the Ford dealer could'nt tell you. People like me and many others who bought sight unseen because you are a out and out Ford man and the dealer could'nt even tell you how far your car-ute was away. When you finally get it, you get 1 miserable phone call asking how it is going after a week and you never hear from them again. I know it is only a XR8 ute I have but surely Ford could be a little bit more interested on what you think of your vehicle. I know I would like a bit of feed back on a brand new product!
Dont worry mate ! In 5-10 years time, we as AUII owners, will still have cars that look like new as everyone else plays catches up !
All we need is an 'upgrade' kit where we can get the BA engine, transmission, suspension and internal dash/aircon layout in our AU, and we'll have the perfect car!
Ford have let us AU owners down big-time. I went out and bought an AUII, which I personally like alot (inside and out), and supported Ford in those dark days.
Then again, I think its those dirt-bag dealers that leave a mark on the good name of Ford.
Ford should regain control of its dealers ! It worked back in 1925 when dealers and local manufacturers assembling various version of the model T were doing the same thing to customers that dealers are doing today !
what about us AU ute owners,we get branded with,its a commercial vehicle,warrenty doesnt cover it,you tradesman keep you utes like pig sty's....the dealers are a really big problem in this issue,after they sell you the car,they dont give a **** about what probs you got,they only interested in charging you heaps of $$$ for an oil change and a wash....

I have this void, you see, I feel like the BA has been launched, and us loyal fans have been forgotten about.
It seems Ford has gone back to the mentality that she will be right mate!
Do you think they should be out there in the market, events, dealerships supporting the Ford Buyer that one step further?
I totally agree with you laminge. As far as I'm concerned the forums have been used like a disposable cup.
They get cudly during the dark AU day's when we were giving our support, but when all looks good for them they piss off.
