2005 Ford Focus, 30 mpg or more. This is our third Focus, 1st was a lemon and Ford replaced it with another which we loved both for its performance on the road and off.

As some of you may remember our youngest daughter passed out at the wheel of this auto doing 70 mph on I-20 in Columbia back in 2004. She actually hit the guard rail, drove through a wooded area and flipped at least 3 times and landed upside down on the access road below the interstate. With the grace of God she suffered only minor injuries which include multiple stiches to her elbow, ear, and forehead and staples in the back of her head along with 3 compressed discs in her back. The car was not as fortunate.

She now drives a Chevy Malibu, but I bought another Focus.

Wife and I have had a variety of different cars.  I have owned and traveled with pickup trucks, Corvettes, even a classic 1968 Camaro.
I don't do the travel trailor thing so I can drive what I want.  I just bought an Infinity G35 sport coupe, fun to drive and gets pretty decent gas milage.  I am a car guy and I figure that if I have a job that takes me on the road away from my family for several weeks/year, I am going to at least have the car that I like.  Guess it is a little reward for myself.

P.S., We took over a lease to help out a family member about 6 months ago, it is a Chevy Equinox...Piece of junk!!!!  That is not to say that all Chevy's are junk, I have had a lot of good GM products.  Just a warning that this new economical SUV could be a vehicle that roadies might want but it is a piece of crap and even the service manager at the dealership where I take it routinely to get fixed says it is.

2003 F250 and 2001 Ford Focus.  The Focus is ok, apparently Ford got it dead on from 2002.5 on to the present.  The Focus had been a perennial C&D 10 best, though they typically displayed the now defunct SVT version at the award.

Momma Broadzilla drives a 2002 Trailblazer (First one off the truck and the first sold in Michigan). Dang thing is reliable as heck and the factory brakes lasted 101K miles.

I drive a red 1998 Plymouth Neon. Gets good gas mileage and since it doesn't have the engine of the trailblazer or my last couple cars I'm less prone to drive like a maniac, though I still do.

It depends on the day, mood, and need.  Lately I've been driving my wife's 2005 Neon and loving the mileage while she's been driving the '99 Town & Country that I usually drive.  When I need it, or the roads get too nasty I'll take my '95 Ram 1500 4X4 but I hate the gas bill, love the ride.  When I get it back roadworthy I'll be driving an '84 Dodge Rampage that I got from my Dad about 10 years ago.

It depends upon the function.

For work or towing its a supercharged 2002 Nissan Frontier 4X4 king cab.
For fun its a 1986 Nissan 300 ZX turbo.
When I'm working near home its a 1991 Honda CRX, 45+mpg is a very good thing. :D

LOL because I'm a predictable ornery old coot. My son drives a 1999 Black 4 Door Escort I bought him as sort of a consolation for moving down here the last month of his junior year and for his senior year. I figured it was the least I could do.

My dream...well not a car...and HD Hugger...black/purple preal. Not a lot of chrome...no bags. Now that the kids are not sucking up all the cash I am well on my way....I can just see me now...riding back to SC to see the kids...wind in my hair.  8)

Well I would like to own/drive either a 1968 Jaguar XJ6 or 1967/68 Land Rover Station Wagon; but its like my grand-dad said once (when he asked me what type of car I wanted for college and I told him a Lamborghini) "People in hell want ice water too".

BTW I actually got a '69 VW411 which was only a few years old by then. Man, I wished I still owned that car... it was teal green and got the best gas mileage - $5 would run me for the week!!!

I have a 1999 Subaru Outback (dubbed "The Shaggin Wagon") and I love it!  I also have a 1982 convertible Rabbit, which is also alot of fun to drive.  Gets pretty decent gas mileage, too.  I'm looking at maybe getting a motorcycle... there is this suzuki SV650 that is for sale- totally tricked out and a screamin deal! 

As to what I would have if I could have anything... Tesla Roadsters are sooooo wicked!

2005 Ford Focus, 30 mpg or more. This is our third Focus, 1st was a lemon and Ford replaced it with another which we loved both for its performance on the road and off.

As some of you may remember our youngest daughter passed out at the wheel of this auto doing 70 mph on I-20 in Columbia back in 2004. She actually hit the guard rail, drove through a wooded area and flipped at least 3 times and landed upside down on the access road below the interstate. With the grace of God she suffered only minor injuries which include multiple stiches to her elbow, ear, and forehead and staples in the back of her head along with 3 compressed discs in her back. The car was not as fortunate.

She now drives a Chevy Malibu, but I bought another Focus.

I drive a 2002 Focus.  It is not a sexy or prestigious car.  However, it is fun to drive, handles like a starfighter, gets decent (not spectacular) mileage.  The trunk is cavernous, and it doesn't cost much to insure.  It sure beats the hell out of corssing the country in a pickup that is longer and heavier and harder to park thatn an AMTRAK Metroliner.  Besides, I don't see the point in hauling around a bunch of atmosphere for 358 days evey year just to have it to haul a payload for the other 7.

I stopped driving foreign cars when I realized that I live, work, and pay taxes in the United States of America, and Honda, BMW, and Toyota are not going to give a damn if the US economy goes bankrupt.  I have fewer opportunities to buy American made goods all the time.  I'm going to buy American cars as long as they make them here.

Very respectable stance.  Consider however that Toyota directly employ's and indirectly creates (dealerships) somewhere in the range of 120,000 American jobs and produces over 1 million autos inside the US.  Also consider that for every auto worker there are typically 5 - 7 jobs created in other industry around where the plants operate.
They are currently the 4th largest "American" auto maker and growing every year.  GM and Ford continue to close plants and ramp up production in countries outside of the US and I won't even go into Chrysler's short commings.

Sorry, I can't help playing the devils advocate and I was raised by General Motors income.  I have always driven American cars until a recent Nissan (Infinity) purchase and continue to own an American 2nd car.  I wish they would manage their business's better and stop what seems to be an inevidable market take over by Toyota.

I will continue to own "American" made cars but common, even frickin' Hyundai has a 10 year/100,000 mile waranty!  GM was only 3years/36,000 miles up until recently and I have been screwed more than once by it.  My Infinity is good till 70K.

Sorry, this was a little off topic but it is a topic of passion with me probably due to growing up in an area that was ruined by GM's inability to manage their business and unions negotiating themselves right out of a job.  Different thread, I am done with my rant.

If nobody bought a foreign car that was "built" in America, those jobs would go to GM, Ford and Chrysler employees.  The same people would have jobs - only they would be putting together cars that are made from (mostly) American parts and American steel.

Japanese cars "produced" in America are assembled here from Japanese-made parts, using steel from Japan.  The profits go home to Japan and support the Japanese government and economy - which heavily subsidizes the Japanese auto industry.

An Accura is a Honda with the top of the H bent in.  It has a Honda engine and all Japanese parts.  A Lexus is a Toyota that costs 3 times as much because they put leather seats in it.

I used to love my BMW.  I'm probably not going to buy another one though - even though it is one of the finest production cars in the world.

I'm not saying that these are badly-made cars.  They are fine.  But Americans need to support American industry - who in turn should be expected to be good citizens of the country.  Any American brand who moves its corporate HQ overseas or outsources to cheap labor abroad is American in name only, and we shouldn't buy from them either.

Until GM, Dodge, Ford, Chevy, or any other company that builds so called US cars can come up with something that will last at least as long as a Toyota, I'm sticking with a Toyota. It doesn't matter if those companies offer a one hundred thousand mile / ten year or not. For my money, I'll take the three year / thirty six thousand, with a lot less headache.

Them there Toyota's do out last most everything else, that's for sure.  But I will make the argument that most of the car companies out there including the big 3 make a pretty decent car these days, just took a decade or so for the GM, Fords, Chryslers to start to catch up.


Did ya know...

Honda's Ohio-built Accord is 70% domestic parts. Toyota's Corolla is made in a California plant alongside General Motors models.

Ford Fusion sedan is made in Mexico; only half its parts are from the USA or Canada. GM pitches its small HHR sport utility and giant Suburban straight at the American market, but they, too, are built in Mexico. HHR has only 41% American and Canadian parts.

More than three-quarters of the parts in Dodge's new Nitro SUV, which is assembled in Toledo, Ohio, are American or Canadian. But the profits go to Germany because Dodge is part of DaimlerChrysler. Chrysler Group, meanwhile, just became the first major automaker to announce it's going to make small cars for the U.S. market in China.

It certainly is hard these days to know who your auto dollars are really supporting.

Few more interesting facts...

Toyota Solara 
Mitsubishi Eclipse   
Toyota Tacoma 
Mitsubishi Endeavor   
Toyota Tundra 
Mitsubishi Galant 


I will also mention that I have 2 friends that both work for Toyota in San Antonio, TX.  One jumped ship from Delphi a few years ago because he knew there was no future in it.  The other jumped ship from Chrysler for the same reason.  The American auto workers that work for Toyota have no fear of loosing their job due to cuts in production or declining domestic sales.  Unfortunately that is not the case with the big 3.  I have literally dozens of people that I know personally that are out of work from Ford and GM plants closing, Chrysler cut backs and Delphi bankruptcy.  It is a sad situation.

More than three-quarters of the parts in Dodge's new Nitro SUV, which is assembled in Toledo, Ohio, are American or Canadian. But the profits go to Germany because Dodge is part of DaimlerChrysler.

Actually the debts are going there!
I drive "American" cares, even though I can't prove it is more patriotic to drive a Mexican-made car with a US badge than an Ohio-made car with a Japanese badge. I drive them because they look and sound good.

I have never been in a foreign car, even for a ride. I'll walk first.

Oh and in answer to question 2. I used to ride a Harley but I can't ride a bike now due to broken elbows. I guess if I could I'd be riding one now. Pretty much whatever vehicle I'm currently driving is my dream car.

I'm a roadie and I put 30,000 miles a year on a car. This car cost 14,750 on CarsDirect, gets over 35 mpg and has an extremely low maintenance cost. I change the Mobil 1 oil every 7500 miles. I'll drive it 7 years, put 200k miles on it and sell it to a college kid when I'm done.

Since I work for my own company, I get my 48.5 cents per mile.

Does your vehicle pay this well?

     8)     I drive a 2003 F150 Harley Davidson anniversary edition ( supercharged 400 plus horsepower ) and a 1986 Harley Davidson FXRS.... I too refuse to drive foreign vehicles, I wish more AMERICANS would do the same...   
      But that's why our country is becoming inferior to others, (loyalty)...  I suppose most people forget how we won WWII, we were not reliant on any other country but our own... We were loyal and faithful... Stick that in your pipe and smoke it... >:(
     
      When I shop for clothes and other items I always look at the tag first to see if it is made in America....
      When my last truck got backed into and the insurance company went to give me a rental I refused what they offered, it was a Nissan...  I told them I would only take an American vehicle.  You should of heard their response, but I got my request... Take care... ;D

I will absolutely walk first and have. The last time I had a flat tire was on a 20 degree day in Michigan. I was 4 miles from home, 2 miles from a phone. I was offered a ride by a nice person in a foreign car. I said no thank you. If I had a choice between a car that I have to pay 2 dollars for a mile and a foreign car that I pay a penny for a mile I'll drive the American brand.

I have bought three foreign cars in my life (2 Alfa Romeos and a Honda Civic) all when I was in my twenties before the concept of foreign car makers taking over was an issue. Since 1982 I have bought Chrysler products and have been very happy with them all. Now that Chrysler is a 'foreign' company I feel like I have just a bit of a dilemma, but my Magnum is largely US made and I just couldn't resist the Crossfire. It appears that Chrysler will once again be an American company soon if Mr. Kerkorian has his way.

I am not as obsessed as BZ (imagine my surprise) but I do believe in 'Buy American', even after living in Michigan and realizing that the American car manufacturers made their own proverbial bed.

            I too have had 3 foreign autos in my life, a Toyota a Nissan and a Honda...  :(    As well I rode Jap bikes when I was young ( very young), the faster the better ( used to race them) a long time ago..
      But that was when this country was still dependent (for the most part) of its self....
  Then I grew up and have seen how we are selling ourselves out... Not good.

      I wouldn't own a foreign auto if given one, period. >:(

I am all about American made products.  I love my country and want to support it by purchasing products made here.  I have owned somewhere around 30 cars in my life time and 29 of them had a domestic badge on them.  Sorry but I just don't have the patratisim for the "Amercian" auto makers any more, they sold us out years ago.  If there is a Chevy, Ford, Chrysler that I like, I buy it, but only because I like it.  If you really think that your are being patriotic when you buy a car from the big 3 and won't even get into a car with a foriegn name on it, your logic is suspect (look at the lists in my last post).  None of them are All American and many of them are only part American and some of them are None American.  GM, Ford and Chrysler consider themselves a "Global Auto Manufacturer", they don't care about being patriotic or providing jobs for the American working class, they care about the bottom line and shareholders, period.  If creating Flint Michigans accross the country will help the operating income they will do it all day long and not loose a wink of sleep.

GM outsourced engine manufacturing to Mexico in the 1980s.
(Hint: that Hecho en Mexico casting on your engine block)
Chrysler sold you a Japanese car as a Dodge Colt before that.
Ford did the same thing. Mazdas and Fords rolled off the Flat Rock Michigan assembly line.

My Harley FLHTCUI has German Bosch Ignition and Fuel Injection, Italian Cast Cylinders, and German Metzeler Tires. It seems to run better than the 1967 XLCH I had with a Fairbanks Morse Magneto, a Tillotson Carburetor, Milwaukee Iron Cylinders, and Goodyear Tires.

I'd buy a mass produced American car if there was one. There hasn't been one in years.

But the former IBEW (LU 51, Springfield, IL) guy in me admires your resolve to remember days gone by.

I remember back when most US jobs had pensions and benefits.

Then 1975 happened.

I too have owned at least 30 cars in my life and only about 5 had american name plates.  All 5 were BIG disappointments.  Out of approximately 25 foreign cars only 2 were disappointments.  My choice in the cars I buy (or any other product) has nothing to do with my patriotism.  I am every bit as patriotic as anyone posting here.  My choices are about quality and desireability.
This nonsense about buy american because it's the right thing to do is BS.  We're in a global economy.  Get used to it.

When I first hit the road it seemed the weapon of choice for road techs was a Chevy S10 Blazer or full size SUV type vehicle. I was driving a rusty 1974 Impala then. When I made senior and could afford better I got a Chevy fullsize pickup with extended cab and four wheel drive. All my stuff fits safe and dry in the back of the cab. The four wheel drive goes fine through the snow. It has a small V8 and stickshift so it's not too bad on gas. And it can haul and tow if needed. Ready for anything! To me the full size extender cab pickup is the perfect vehicle for a migrant nukeworker. Just my opinion.

WOW did this thread go way off topic or is it just me ??? To say "Buy American" (seems that this slogan has been around most of my life) is a good and noble saying, but the reality of it is that much of what Americans buy is that they believe is made in the US is more likely assembled in the US.  Most major corporations will outsource their parts manufacturing to a foreign company and just put the parts together in the States.  Back in the days when the States was a major player on the world market and less reliant on foreign countries for consumer items this wasn't an issue, now the coin has flipped and the US has slipped in to being a consumer and not a supplier.  If people want to look for a root cause for this I would have to say it is the quality of life expectations of people living in the US.  We (I am an American that lives in Canada, but only for the past 6 years).  We have priced (wages, benefits, etc.) right out of the market place.  Corporations are in business to make money and when labour costs are too high, they look elsewhere. 

All of the above is just one man's humble opinion.

I stopped driving foreign cars when I realized that I live, work, and pay taxes in the United States of America, and Honda, BMW, and Toyota are not going to give a damn if the US economy goes bankrupt.  I have fewer opportunities to buy American made goods all the time.  I'm going to buy American cars as long as they make them here.
[/quote]

Hey Beercourt, there are some foreign cars which are actually built in the US. There are working US citizens, which pay taxes as well.

I live in a "car country" and I drive a 2002 Nissan Primera (Shame on me), and my wife a 2001 Renault Megane Convertible. German cars are too expensive in this part of Europe, so people tend to buy  mostly foreign cars.
A lot of German cars are manufactured beyond the former "iron curtain", so I don't really have a problem with driving an Asian car.

I would love to drive a US SUV (Jeep Grand Cherokee or something), but gas prices are too high in Europe, so I would work the half month for the car. :D

Japanese cars "produced" in America are assembled here from Japanese-made parts, using steel from Japan. 

Um, not exactly. Check out
  http://online.wsj.com/public/article/SB114731076341249773-vC7NDlPLXotsdDHpLbpm5Ewbo9E_20060610.html?mod=tff_article

Granted, this is a complex issue from many sides but the old "Buy American" attitude doesn't really help. That's part of what got us into so much trouble in the first place. We were complacent enough to buy cars that had to be replaced every 3 or 4 years because they rusted out or just broke down. We didn't care. They were cheap and so was the gas. The auto industry happily went along and after a 'gas crisis' or two, they found themselves unable to compete and catch up with both foreign competition and a suddenly more fickle U.S. market demanding more efficient cars. 

That said, I have owned many US autos and have had good and bad ones. Loved my 1990 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4, (for example) which was the last new US vehicle I bought. Ran great with the 4.0, was very reliable and spent very little time in the shop.
On the other hand, the 2003 Fiat Punto we own here is an absolutely fantastic little car. I remember when Fiat stood for "Fix It Again, Tony" but so far this has been THE most reliable auto I've ever owned. Small as it is, it seats four adults comfortably and is actually quieter, more stable, and smoother at highway speeds (80mph here) than any larger American car I've rented back in the US recently. And being a long time fan of many American cars, I can say I was more than a little surprised at this. Our next car will probably be a Fiat as well.

Living in Austria, it is surprising to hear how much trouble Ford is having back home. They are doing quite well in Europe. The British think that Ford has actually improved Jaguar, Aston Martin, and Land Rover since taking them over some years ago. Ford is a global company and has a much larger brand presence here than GM, but GM is actually increasing their market share here. There are loads of Chryslers on the road here as well, all proudly displaying a "Made in Austria" badge.

Ford, GM, and Chrysler need to figure out a way to translate their successes overseas into success back home.

You can argue the Made in America deal ALL DAY LONG.
I ask another question; Where do the profits go?

In the end, do we Americans REALLY want to lose our heritage? What if Ford does go bankrupt? Ford is THE American ICON of manufacturing. Ford INVENTED the modern concept of the assembly line.

If we keep going the way we are, we'll lose our place in the world economy and manufacturing. The start of the fall, for once the greatest nation in the world will be dependant on foreign supply for everything. Buy American seems to be an out-dated slogan that's more important than we realize. We're already dependant on Wal-Mart for supplying us with Cheap Chineese crap.

OK, back to the original subject: There was no choice for my rides.........

Where do the profits go?  Where do the profits go?...

Not an unimportant question but, I do know that if Toyota creates over 120,000 jobs directly and indirectly (auto workers and dealer sales/service employee's) in this country and there are...lets say 4 (conservative, really more like 6 or 7) lower paying jobs that are supported in these areas (Walmart, gas station, McDonalds etc.).
If the average autoworker and dealership worker makes $50,000/year and the clerk at the gas station, local Walmart etc. makes $8/hr and don't even consider any benefits that are tacked on to these wages you'll start to see that because Toyota produces over 1 million autos in this country it directly and indirectly pumps TENS OF BILLIONS of dollars into the American economy.

With all of that do I really care if Toyota's profit margin ($180'ish billion dollar company operating on a 6.7% profit margin) go's to Japan?  Not really...  And, if this still bothers you, buy Toyota stock.  Own part of the company.  It outperforms any domestic car brand stock.

Kind of crude calculations but ball park and you see what I am getting at.

 I have a number of vehicle... but mainly use my beast Montero while working.

 As for chosing either American or foreign cars... I choose that vehicle that suits my needs.  I have not bought a new "work" vehicle, and the quality is such that i believe I can put on another 200000 miles on it (only 212200 on rolling).

 Its kinda like beer... some of you drink that fizzy yellow s***..  while I prefer beer that has character and flavor

I drive a 2006 Volkwagen Passat 2.0T, it's a hellified grocery getter with a turbo but it look good and gets 30+MPG.  Plus, I can get it programmed to give it more boost and 40 extra HP.  Dream car though is either a perfect 68 Camaro or a 07 Corvette Z06, to bad I don't have $70,000 laying around for either of them.  And as my screen name implies, I use to have a 98 Buell S1 White Lightning that I regretfully sold, and had a 04 Buel Lightning XB12S that was totaled by my roommate while I was away.  Still owes me for that.

I really liked my Passat.  I did get the chip reprogrammed to 1 bar boost from the turbo and my mpg actually improved because of the better fuel to air ratios in the programming. 

Now I'm driving 04 Honda Civic (getting ~34 city/40 highway mpg) and 05 Mazda 6.

Yeah, I'm waiting on getting it done, but when I do, Mustangs are gonna be wondering what happened when they pull up next to me at a light.  When I had my 93' Z28, every light I pulled up to someone wanted to race.  It didn't matter what they were driving or who they were, there is something about being in a fast car that makes people want to race you.  I had a 16 y/o kid pull up next to me in some 80's chevy cavalier and I just had to, I couldn't let him think for a second his car was better then mine.

1989 Mustang LX Convertible (W/ the 5.0, My third Mustang and personal favorite car)
2000 Dodge Ram P/U and Momma drives a 1998 Ford Explorer.

Most of my friends drive sports cars ranging from newer imports to old american muscle.

As far as economics, It don't much matter what you drive when you only live 7 miles from the plant you work at.

Im still driving around my 2000 chrysler sebring convertible.  Shes looking a lil worn around the edges with 120k on her but if I get another 50k miles ill be happy as a clam.  I think the next vehicle will be a truck though.  Im mostly a city dweller but I like the idea of putting a cover on the back and just using the bed as a MASSIVE trunk so I can fit a stroller and luggage.

I made a lot of big mistakes over the years and one of those was when I was fresh off the boat. My sole focus was getting a Corvette. My pay had more than doubled so I didn't listen to all the older techs calling me an idiot. There were several. I kept that piece of crap for four years. It even got stolen but "lucky for me" it was found and returned. While working at a Duke plant, a girl came up to me and asked," aren't you the guy with the Vette"? Why yes...Yes I am. This of course led to another big mistake which lasted 19 years. But now that I think of it, if I had not bought that car, I would not have my son. So thanks to that financially inept purchase of that piece of crap car, I am having an awesome Father's Day so far. Happy Father's Day!!!!
The best vehicle was my 95 Astro mini van. I used it in the business I ran while I was out of the nukes for 5 years. I kept it when I got my Ops job. I put 247,000 miles on it. I especially loved it during outages. When you had these idiots that would take up a space and a half with their behemoth dually, I made it my mission to fit in the half space. I would just crawl out the back.

You might walk first, if that's how you count pennies.

I'm a roadie and I put 30,000 miles a year on a car. This car cost 14,750 on CarsDirect, gets over 35 mpg and has an extremely low maintenance cost. I change the Mobil 1 oil every 7500 miles. I'll drive it 7 years, put 200k miles on it and sell it to a college kid when I'm done.

Since I work for my own company, I get my 48.5 cents per mile.

Does your vehicle pay this well?

Update: Its 2013, and the Honda has 165,000 miles on it. It will be ten years old in 2015, and I should have that 200,000 miles on it.

Finally sold my 84 MB 190 diesel with almost 300k ; to another roadtech's son. Hope he'll double the miles. I bought a new Hyundai Elantra in July . Already has 30000 miles on it . I 'll be pleased if it can come close to matching the Benz. By the way, Hyundai over estmated the fuel mileage at 40 mpg. It only gets 38 mpg. They now send me  about $ 40 every 3 mos in credit for as long as I own the car.

Dang, my 2010 just hit 72K. This is the longest I've kept a Hemi Ram since I started buying them in 2004. I've had the 04, 07, and the 10.

But, a little fender bender (cosmetic, repaired just fine) killed any resale value so I'll just keep this one until it dies.

comfortable for drivers in the 5'10" and below size range, 6' and above start to feel the "compact" part of the product description...

like all Fords the estimated mpg are about 10% below real world results after factoring in oxygenated gas, mandated additives and the up to 10% ethanol found in a lot of places,...

ride quality is good, build quality is good,....

with the V6 and front wheel drive plus the factory towing option our Escape pulls up to 2000 pounds like it's not even there, over 2,000 and up to the rated load of about 3,000 you begin to realize you do have something back there, the wedge trailers help about 20% with the fuel mileage, flat fronts are like towing a brick, especially as you pile the weight on,....

 The Escape "wood" be a good choice. I used mine to tow airplane parts, ATVS and lots of other things. Stick to the 6 cylinder model the 2005- 2010 models are pretty reasonable and even more so if 4wd is not that important to you.
Mileage is in the 20 - 25 mpg range for the 4wd models.

like all Fords the estimated mpg are about 10% below real world results after factoring in oxygenated gas, mandated additives and the up to 10% ethanol found in a lot of places,...

I often wondered if I was seeing an optical illusion of my previous 89 Taurus wagon with the 3.8L getting about 35 mpg in cruise, about 20% higher than sticker estimate. If only the head gasket was as good...  ::)

I too am considering a gently used Escape, or possibly a gently used Jeep Patriot. Anyone have any opinion on the 2010 Patriot?

westerly tail wind when traveling eastbound,...

my '04 ranger had about a 10 to 20 percent mpg spread between the weekly westbound into work and the eastbound home for the weekend,...

influenced by time of year, gas additives, gas quality, headwind vs tailwind and 70 mph vs 80 mph,...

it was a 520 mile trip each way, 1040 miles round trip so a lot of the other p.d.f.'s were normalized by the length of the trip,...

I was amused by the sheer magnitude the simplest things can affect,...

The 1990 through 2000's V-6 Fords are known for head gasket problems after the miles pile up, draining and recharging the engine coolant more often than specified seems to help a lot, there are 3.0's with over 300K miles running the factory head gaskets,...

Thinking of buying my wife a new Ford Escape to replace her 98 Explorer Sport. Can anyone give me feedback on the Escape? Will it pull a small motorcycle trailer? Realitistic mpg , longevity ?

What did you find out about the Escape? I've kicked around the idea of picking up a gently used model somewhere in the 2006-11 range, 4x4. Thanks!

The Sport model does have bigger exterior dimensions but does not have appreciably more interior dimensions or cargo room (about 1.5 cubic feet more). This is because of improvements in design between 1998 and say 2008 plus the platform for the Sport's interior and body on frame was based off the Ford Ranger pick up truck third generation circa 1993 whereas the Escape is a unique to self design on the CD2 unibody platform. Because the CD2 platform is essentially a passenger car platform the ride and stability are different than a truck derived platform. The 1998 Sport's electronic engine management is a lot less effective than a 2008 or newer Escape's and the safe tow rating is not better if an Escape with the factory tow package is being considered. Aftermarket tow packages for Ford Escapes is not something I would recommend. Add in the added bonus of active engine engagement when towing, selectable stability control functions and a better balance between power train capability and GCWR and the Escape is more useful for the typical driver pulling the occasional trailer.

Now, if you're a towing proficient truck purist who knows how to get the most from your rig in all circumstances the body on frame Explorer Sport has a few pluses. Except that your rig is an Explorer Sport, which is a mediocre tow rig at best and easily crosses into not good territory. And with a Class II/III hitch under the bumper the inadvertent crossing into not good territory is all too easy.

At the end of the day, "it's paid for" is the best reason for keeping the Sport, or just an honest "I like the way it looks" works too.

The Escape is a better vehicle on paper and day to day but, you have to be happy in it, happy counts for a lot.

And don't forget those stupid soy based seat coverings in the later Escapes really are not one of Ford's better ideas.

ETD!!!!

Actually 'the wife' liked the Magnum and so did I (and based on the fact that they are not easy to find used, so do most of the original owners.) I am not the least bit worried about perceptions of it being a station wagon (it is.) They are very versatile and drive very well, not to mention getting out of their own way in a big hurry.

As for the Crossfire, I am also not worried about owning a Mercedes SLK with a Chrysler badge on it because it still behaves like a MB and I paid about 2/3 of the cost of the SLK. If I wanted to drive what the crowd is driving I would buy a Ford... but that is not very likely unless I get a lobotomy.

04 F150 FX4 with the dreaded 5.4 3 valve, keeps me busy. Bought the wife a 2015 Honda Pilot in the fall of 14, she loves it. Seats 8 comfortably, but is small enough that she can still park it anywhere and it's about $20,000 cheaper then a Suburban. Back seats fold flat which is great this time of year as we are usually hauling ball gear either to a practice or a game.

dependent on the vehicle's condition now is a good time,...

the body style of the 2010 is aesthetically popular,...

a 2010 is a bit long in the tooth for resale value, better to get it done before the rust monster settles in (if you live in the rust belt or close to the coast),...

the plethora of plastic body panels mask the rust traps and the onset of chloride cancer, by the time you see the bubbling and flaking it's much worse than you think it is,...

but I do a lot of miles for my work, so typically I will still end up upgrading every six to eight years even with meticulous maintenance,...

300,000 miles is still 300,000 miles,...

she deserves it, and I rest better knowing if anything goes goofy Ford can pay for it, and there will be at least a loaner in the driveway for her until things are set aright again,...
