I'm very happy with my Ford's. My 2001 Bullitt, with 50,400 miles on it, has never been in the shop for repairs since new. The only problems I've had with my 86,000 mile 98 convertible, have been a gas problem, that took out the oxygen sensors, and recently a horn that beeps on it's own. My 07 had a air bag a,d a check engine light come on, that was only a reprograming that fixed it.
I've never had a GM product, except my 85 Oldsmobile, that didn't require several hundred dollars of parts replacements, while still under warranty. I usually buy a new vehicle, every two or three years.
