    Still, it's about time they woke the fuck up and switched gears over here in the US.

    I hope they don't rebadge some of those cars as Mercurys to try to revive that brand. That brand is dead and needs to go.

    Obligatory... You are not Trishield.


    I'm in favor of this plan. I've been saying for years that it doesn't make sense for Ford to have "global" platforms that they don't actually use for the North American market.

    when was that? :hsugh:
    originally it was just a contour.

    The previous generation was a highly regarded car, and the current one is too.

    Last year. The thing was littered with mechanical problems. At one point the speedometer didn't function so I just had to guesstimate how fast I was going.

    The first time I was in England we had an old body style Mondeo and it was nothing special. The last time I was there they gave us a brand new turbo diesel Mondeo and it was actually pretty nice. It got about 500 miles per tank of gas and handled pretty well too.

    We need the Fairlane and Falcon, too. At the very least, they'd make for a nice Lincoln LS replacement.
