I'm sorry but it appears we have come to a decidedly difference of opinion my fellow Canadian. Perhaps we should discuss this over a poutine and beer, eh? Of course I'm always up for a beavertail and some backbacon too so please don't consider my pallet singularly focus'd on the staples.

More to the point however, I would like to express my concern with purchasing a vehicle, (that in this area at least) has basically no resale value and requires all maintenance be performed at the local dealership. The alternative being that we send the tech's on courses ($$$) and obtain tooling and equipment ($$$) for a vehicle that we will retain for 3 years.

 

Please don't think I take your counter to my opinion lightly as it causes me great anguish to have to do so. But, I feel I must express myself, as is my right as a Canadian.

 

Sincerely,

Your honourable opposition.

Sweet sacred Jesus I wish the last PROGREP meeting I had was that civil by.

Posted before about "What is a C-Max?".
 

People ignored them at Auto Show, and my friends were like 'wtf is that?'.

 

Big mistake to drop the Escape Hybrid model. Sure, they need to pay off the C Max tooling, but why cancel a good selling model?

Should bring back Escape hybrid and also a new Focus version. Or, rename C-Max as 'Focus Max hybrid'.

My wife and I love our C-Max.  Has over 18K miles and saving gas and riding smooth and high fits our fancy.  Would not take a Prius for free if we had to drive it, love the high seating position of C-Max and gladly give up a few MPGs for it.  And just for facts we are avg over 47 since purchase.

I'm going to have to ask you to leave.  Facts have no place on the internet.  And your reasonable approach to balancing ALL the things you like about the car with the potential loss of MPG doesn't match the narrative.  But thanks for your participation.

Prior:

'01 Pontiac Sunfire (traded in for the Fusion with 142k...good car, never a problem)
'00 Plymouth Neon (traded in for the Sunfire with 35k when I blew the head gasket---probably because I pegged it at 110 twice. I liked the car, though...it was my first new car)
'94 Plymouth Acclaim (first car I ever BOUGHT...ok car, but transmission was horrible...traded this for the Neon)
Pontiac LeMans (I think it was an '89...barely memorable)
'76 Ford Granada (my very first car---parents bought it for $500)
 

Future: Mindless support for Trump means something other than a Ford. (Probably an ATS or an S60).

You may.  I'd suggest a few practice trolling tweets.  Try using lots of exclamation points.

OMG...Twitter has seriously permeated my entire brain and soul.  I made this same mistake in text conversation with a friend.

Sweet sacred Jesus I wish the last PROGREP meeting I had was that civil by.

Are you sure your Canadian??? It's BYE, not by.....as in I's da bye dat builds da boat, an' I's da bye dat sails 'er, I's da bye dat catches da fish, an' brings 'em 'ome ta lizer.

 

American translation of the Newfoundland song;

I am the guy who builds the boat (in this case dory or punt), I am the guy who is the captain as well, I am the fisherman who hauls in the nets full of fish, and takes them home to his wife Elisabeth.

 

We'll let it go this time...maybe your not from the East coast? And it's SitRep..you Navy plugs never get anything right. LOL!

Algorian Logic

A reasoning technique that entails reaching a conclusion about a subject in which one has no expertise and subsequently finding or creating factoids to support the supposition without using critical thinking skills or research to discern the obvious implausibility of the facts or the conclusion.

Tanks fer the correction bye. It's been quite a while since I've been east. I'm Canadian not Newf. The PROGREP is more of a meeting like 'Morning Prayers' = Forced Civility. SITREP is understood. Why you land-lubbers use GRID opposed to Lat/Long is sometimes baffling however, it works.
