Consumer Reports: Ford Quality Among the Best

October 29, 2009

DEARBORN — Already producing world-class initial quality, Ford now is the only U.S. domestic automaker with world-class reliability, according to Consumer Reports, which released details Tuesday of its 2009 Annual Car Reliability Survey.

The magazine's news release heralded the company’s quality improvement, stating in the headline that "Ford Secures Place Among World's Most Reliable Carmakers." 

According to the Consumer Reports release, "Ford's sustained production of vehicles that are as dependable – or better than – some of the industry's best dispels the notion that only Japanese manufacturers make reliable cars.  Other than the Toyota Prius, the reliability of the 4-cylinder Fusion and Milan ranks higher than that of any other family sedan.  Both of those Ford Motor Company products continue to beat the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, while the upscale Lincoln MKZ tops its rivals, the Acura TL and Lexus ES."

David Champion, senior director of Consumer Reports' Automotive Test Center, had additional praise for Ford's trio of mid-size sedans.   

"It's rare for Consumer Reports to see family sedans from domestic carmakers continue to beat the reliability scores of such highly regarded Japanese models as the Camry and Accord," said Champion in the news release.

Overall, about 90 percent of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury products were rated average or better reliability in the Consumer Reports survey.   

"The Ford team has a commitment to be world class in quality, and we’ve made consistent strides over the last five years," said Bennie Fowler, group vice president, Ford Global Quality.  "Today is a great day for us and for our customers, to have such a highly regarded third party – Consumer Reports — recognize us for what we already know." 

The Ford Mustang V-6 was among the most reliable vehicles in the "Sporty Cars/Coupes and Convertibles" category.  The new Ford Flex also performed well in the study. 

Consumer Reports says its 2009 reliability survey is based on responses on more than 1.4 million vehicles owned or leased by subscribers to the magazine or its Web site.  The survey was conducted in the spring of 2009 and covers model years 2000 to 2009.

February 10, 2009

Head turning design, innovative technology, unparalleled comfort, and some of the most advanced safety features available on a vehicle today.  Sounds like a Toyota, Honda, BMW, or maybe even a Mercedes right?  Well it may sound like a vehicle from one of these manufacturers but it's not. 

Imagine this…you're sitting in a big plush leather recliner, comfy right?  That's what it feels like when you sit behind the wheel in these amazingly comfortable plush leather seats.  How about foot rests for the second row?  That would be comfortable too… yeah it's got those too.  If you travel a lot with the family and you don't like stopping for a cold drink you can simply put few sodas in the built in refrigerator in the second row.  That's right, the second row console has an option to have a refrigerator/freezer inside the console.  You also get a fold-flat 3rd row seat and tons of head and leg room for all three rows.

Lets talk about technology.  One thing's for sure, you have to check out the available navigation system in this ride.  You can use voice commands to find local movie listings, gas prices, sports scores, weather and a whole lot more.  You can pair your Blue-tooth compatible phone to the car and have complete voice control over your phone allowing you to keep your hands on the wheel on your eyes on the road.  You can tell the system to "Call Mike" and it will make the phone call for you.  Getting an incoming text message…some compatible phones will actually read your text message to you.  These are just a couple of the available sweet technology features available.

When you step outside of the plush comfortable interior you will notice the head turning distinct design.  This vehicle stands out from the crowd and says I am breaking the mold for what a vehicle should look like.  For those of you that want to be noticed this is the vehicle for you.  This vehicle commands attention and begs to be driven.  Under the hood is a 3.5 liter V6 with 262 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque…plenty of power to get your heart pumping for more.  Want to learn more about this amazing ride?  Cick below and be prepared because you too will want to Drive One.

Allow me to introduce you to the Ford Flex…just get in and Drive One.
