Ford, Question of the Day: Would you buy a Ford?, ClassicCars.com Journal

My opinion of Ford isn’t great. I’ve owned one in my life, 1994 Thunderbird, and it had constant electrical issues to the point that I couldn’t get rid of it fast enough. With the constant surging I had some trepidations about accelerating, but it did make me a very cautious driver.

So dear readers, would you buy a Ford?

My take? Possibly, but it better be one awesome Ford.

  1. I’ve had a couple Fords, but the 1995 Windstar stands out as the biggest POS i could imagine; tranny gone at 75,000, engine heads warped in two years. i’ve said if that was my first Ford it would have been the last. Otherwise, I’ve been happy with my Fords.

    Read somewhere recently that Ford is the John Wayne of autos. That seems to accurately capture the current situation.

  2. David: Your refusal to post a comment because it might not agree with your sentiment is ridiculous. Knock off the wokeness… there is no place for it in the car hobby.

  3. My dad was a mechanic. He bought a new 1956 Ford. Worst vehicle he ever owned. He switched to Chevrolet. I’ve been a Chevy man my whole life, but I bought a Ford Escort. I had nothing but problems. It General Motors for me from now on!

  4. Never had a bad Ford. Still driving a1950 custom 2dr sedan, sets for days, turn on the key, pump gas pedal a few times and away we go. Crown Vic was a great car. All of my F150 were and are the best, never break down.

  5. I have been a BMW guy most of my adult life (I’m in my 60s) with a few Toyotas, Jeeps, a Honda and a recent Fiat 124 Spider thrown in. Yes, I’d buy a Ford. You can’t beat the F150 for a pick-up. The electric “Mustang” looks pretty interesting. Through I will say the worse new car I ever had was a 1998 Eddie Bauer edition Ford Explorer. It was a real POS.

  6. Dodge Chevy GM Ford on and on some good some terrible. Like anything in the car industry do your research and get as much knowledge as you can hope for the best

    There are and were some really bad Ford models. The thing is though every domestic manufacturer has had some really bad models they all have their good ones bad ones change year to year so I don’t really think one of the domestics is overall over time superior to the others I’ve had all of them Dodge Chevy GM Ford on and on some good some terrible. Like anything in the car industry do your research and get as much knowledge as you can hope for the best

  7. Sure but be cautious. I had good reliability with a 72 F100 in the 80s I used hard as a work truck hauling wood for several years. 2 wheel drive with a 340 engine I think. Also believe it or not a 73 falcon with a worn out 289 engine I bought real cheep. Not good luck with a couple early Taurus cars. The Wagon road very nice but unfortunately lost the transmission twice. < 80k miles.

  8. Had 3 of them, 68 Falcon, 83 5L Capri, 96 Windstar… all crap. Not to mention there are no great Ford legacy muscle cars except the Mustang. Compare that to the offerings from Mopar and GM, no comparison.

  9. I wouldn’t own anything else. Of course I limit my purchases to certain ones. Ford makes the best V-8 in the business. Always have. Currently, I own a 2005 Ford GT, 2003 Mercury Marauder, 2006 Ford Mustang GT convertible, 1988 Mustang GT, 2013 Lincoln MKS Ecoboost, 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor and a 2016 Shelby GT-350. I like them all for different reasons.
