    My car

    This is one of the most entertaing cars I have ever tried, even with only 100bhp.

    It's comfortable, refined and bit of a bargain on the used car lots.

    There are downsides in that you will never stand out in a crowd, and the Ford dealers I have visited (several) appeared almost unintersted.

    My car

    This car of mine bought second-hand from a Ford Garage ran OK untill the auto 'box packed up at 16000 miles and they did not want to change it.

    However, after a lot of hassle, they fixed it.

    If I had my money back now, I would buy something different. I think Ford are going the wrong route with their customers .
