Not really a bumper sticker, but.......

I saw this logo on the back window of a Holden on the way home.
Alongside the logo, were the words:



at least they circled the problem...


LMAO!!!

After owning three Ford cars, a Plymouth, a Toyota, and a Buick, I would say that Ford cars certainly do not suck.

I owned two fords both explorers and the only real problem they had were the chepie plastic pieces in the interior. They both ran damn good and were nicely powered.

My family owned one ford car. A 1994 Mercury Sable. Biggest POS ever.

The only good thing I have to say about Ford is that I was born too late to have had any chance of coming into contact with an exploding Pinto.

It's been awhile, but Jesus Christ, what assholes.

Quote:
One of the tools that Ford used to argue for the delay was a "cost-benefit analysis" of altering the fuel tanks. According to Ford's estimates, the unsafe tanks would cause 180 burn deaths, 180 serious burn injuries, and 2,100 burned vehicles each year. It calculated that it would have to pay $200,000 per death, $67,000 per injury, and $700 per vehicle, for a total of $49.5 million. However, the cost of saving lives and injuries ran even higher: alterations would cost $11 per car or truck, which added up to $137 million per year. Essentially, Ford argued before the government that it would be cheaper just to let their customers burn!

Just to square things away, I am a Holden fan, but have also owned Fords as well. I had a Chev as well. And they all broke down, and they all cost me money, at some time or other.

The foreign (at least to americans) Ford lines in my opinion are better quality and better cars all around. The american line blows in quality and attraction. Their trucks are slightly better but are overrated and way to trendy. At least in so cal. Had a ranger we just got rid of. Wow, that thing sucked. Course grandpas still got a '76 f150 custom with the crew cab (or whatever it was called then) and extended bed. Beast of a truck, just underpowered for its size. But honestly, in '76 what wasn't?

I have a lot of Taxi's coming in to work, and most of them are fords. Have worked on Fords with over 1 MILLION Kilometers on the speedo. Gearboxes and diffs being what was replaced most. Engines very long lastings. (Note we are talking 4.0litre 6 cylinder running on LPG, mostly) Highest Holden has been around 800,000 Ks. and owners tell mainly of engine probs.

But I would buy either.....

I prefer "First On Race Day" or "For Off RoaD"

Personally anyone that buys an American built car can expect problems. They just are not built worth a damn.

While being sick of the ford bashing by people who really havnt a clue other then it being a trend, I can appreciate the humor in that. Glad to see creative humor like that.

All vheicles suck equally, and have pros and cons.

Personally I'll take a ford truck over any other, as for cars I'll stay non-american made.
