    I want to love Ford, I really do but ... the '18 F150 I bought in Jan, 2018 was nothing but a headache. That turbo-six w/10 speed tranny was a dream to drive but a nightmare to own. Five visits to the service center inside of 18 months and 14K miles. No thanks, done with Ford. Traded it in for a '19 4Runner last Summer and haven't had a single issue. Ford might be building ventilators but I guaran-effin-tee Toyota would build ones that operate correctly!

    You may correct me if I am wrong but I believe Ford did not take nor need a bailout, it was General Motors who was the one who received (and eventually paid back) a bailout. There were several memes calling them Government Motors.

    Correct. Ford did take loans , but loans get paid back. GM got free money lots of it and got breaks in laws that allowed them to stick everyday investors. No GM has not paid back . The free stuff was a gift.

    At $25,000 each that a lot more than they would make on cars and trucks

    Hey Smitty,
    In February 2017 four young men were returning from the gun range in Como, Ms when they flipped a 2013 Ford Edge. All wore seat belts and all four lived.
    They flipped end over end 4 times. Ford makes a great product.

    The Edge does rate high in safety
