  1. The Raptor still has them. They moved from the center console to the ceiling, which is a much better location.
  2. The Fusion is still a good looking car, although the interior could use a little update. I still enjoy driving my 2016 work car. It’s a solid vehicle, and I think it has aged well. For somebody new to the vehicle it probably works, but getting somebody to upgrade from their existing Fusion to a newer model is where the problem lies as far as I’m concerned.
  3. I would argue they didn’t even try to compete. You can’t let vehicles die on the vine and expect people will want to buy them. The 2013 Fusion was a very competitive entry into the midsize market. Unfortunately today’s Fusion is essentially the same car as the 2013. Ford has a bad history of doing this, and it is hard to understand why.
  4. Hey now, I had a Probe that had 150k on it when I got rid of it. It was a good car for me.
  5. I’m not exactly sure why this topic is in this forum considering it has pretty much turned into politics, which is about as enjoyable as a root canal. I thought about engaging, but it isn’t worth it. Nobody’s convincing anyone to come to their side even though people have more in common than they realize, but aren’t willing to find that common ground. I come to this forum because I enjoy talking and learning about Ford products, so time to abandon this thread.
  6. It might be a good policy if approximately 66% of their power didn’t come from coal. I would venture to say the modern ice powered cars would pollute less than the those coal fired power plants charging those electric cars.
  7. I have a love hate relationship with California. I love the land and what it has to offer, as well as some good people, but hate its politics. Make no mistake, if California politicians had the ability to push their agendas onto the rest of the country they would. Thankfully they can’t. The exception to that would be some awful case law that has come out of the 9th circuit that has established some bad precedent for the rest of the country at the federal level. Of course the 7th circuit has done some real doozies too, so you aren’t alone.
  8. You are seriously using the PRC as example of good public policy?
  9. I guess it depends on which scientists you listen to doesn’t it.

    Bad Fuel Injector 2019 Ranger

    I bought my truck at a different dealer (a family friend) but have all the service work done at a dealer near my house. They give me a service loaner every time without hesitation. I wouldn’t be afraid to ask for one at this point, as it is a new truck. I had some issues right off the bat with my F-150 (the brand new ten speed) but things have been good ever since. Hang in there.

    Did they give you a service loaner in the meantime?

    NEW 2021 F150

    IMO it should be an option so people aren’t getting squeezed on the base price of the vehicle, but we know how that goes. Speaking of IRS, should it not be an easy option to add considering the F-150 and the Expedition are purported to be using the same frame?

    I hope it’s under there. That is a favorite characteristic of mine and sets it apart from other trucks.

    NEW 2021 F150

    Probably the APIM. I had to have mine replaced twice before it was working properly again. It was super laggy prior to the replacement.

    So much in this picture hurts

    Great looking car! I like the color. Congrats!
  16. Apparently a lot, because I start reading a thread from the beginning and respond accordingly, and it really wasn’t debated about purposely holding back advertising until later in the thread.
  17. Agreed, there are ridiculous amounts of Tacomas in Cali. I don’t understand why Ford wouldn’t do a better job marketing there, considering that market definitely embraces the medium size truck.

    Welcome aboard Michael! We need pics of the new ride...
  19. Well regardless of the price, it looks pretty bad ass.

    Tesla drops a bomb

    It doesn’t make any sense...
  22. That seems expensive for what it is. Buy a Lariat and then add that package and you are getting close to Raptor pricing. With that said, Ford needs this package from the factory. Something better than the current FX4 package but not quite to the level of the Raptor.
