My '97 Ford Contour has about 125,000 miles and has had only spark plugs,
oil and filter, brakes, two wheel bearings and one axle replaced. And it
runs perfectly smooth. A piece of crap? I think not.

BTW, Ford stands for "found on the road dead" or "Fix or repair daily." Get
it right.

My '90 Toyota MR2 is in prestine condition, has done 145,000 miles and has
only ever had spark plugs, oil and filter, brakes, the wheel bearings and
axles are all fine. A friend of mine has a Landcruiser which has done over
300,000 and has has nothing done other than consumables, they are bomb
proof.

I have also owned two Fords both have been a poor ride, poor build quality
and sounded like a tray of smashed crockery after 60,000 miles, never again.

You mean like the rusted out mesquito fogging Lnadcrusier that one of my
neighbors owns? If that is "bomb proof" then my old F150 must be nuclear
weapon proof. Or then there is the Camry that parks across the lot from me.
Leaves a cloud of smoke as it rattles out of the parking lot every mornig.Or
then there is the Cressida me and my ex owned. By 60,000 miles the paint was
falling off, the trim was faded, the interior plastic was warping, the
transmission was acting up, the A/C had failed, three alternators had
failed, the starter had failed, and it road and drove like crap. Oh yeah -
quality all the way.And expensive crap too. Oh what a feeling. Moving
Forward.

I still dont get your point.. you dont have fords, anymore, so what's
your problem?

You should be happy you wised up and are rid of them. Or is it that you
feel betrayed in some way?

Get over it, or get therapy ... meantime piss off!

Re: Ford GT

We are ever so happy for you and your automotive buying decision. However...
you have yet to make a point... other than the British car industry is in a
shambles. - BMC and Lucas made sure of that.... Ford Owns Jaguar and Land
Rover (the 300,000 mile bomb proof Land Rover, remember?)....

Your automotive requirements are much different from mine and this will
influence your buying decision... For me, Ford trucks have been "the answer"
for nearly 30 years... From my 73 to my 85 to my 93 and on to my current
2002 SuperCrew. I live in a harsh corner of our planet... You can't
understand -40C because you haven't felt it... how often to you set upon a
1000 mile journey at what amounts to a moments notice... Both are part and
parcel of my life.... and my Ford trucks have never let me down.

Feel free to your opinions... but, at this point in time, you sound more
like a parrot than a motorist - <mental picture>.... Mikey, sitting on a
stick in the corner of the room... "AUKK... Fords are crap....AUKK.....
Fords are crap...".

If we give you a cracker, will you shut the f*ck up?

Moving forward and getting ford, lol. No this is a 93 Landcruiser the same
model as the one is austraia which has done over 1,000,000 miles on the same
engine, incidently has only has new consumables and piston rings. Fords are
shit get over it.

Perhaps Mikey has given up his campaign to give Malcolm Glazer heat for
buying Manchester United and is looking for something equally unrewarding
to carp on?

I think it's worth noting that I have the same low opinion of VW/Audi,
Renault and Peugeot but I dont sit on their groups carping.

Re: Ford GT

no, fords are not "shit". the uk rectal orifices that feel they need to
come on a newsgroup that serves ford owners all over the world with good,
sound, advice for free, and feel the need to try to start a flame war are.
we have a name for rectal orifices like you, but I will not say it here
