    OK, I'm home on Saturday night with no date... again. I'm on CK5 and I turn around and look at the TV and see the top of this '88-'98 Chevy regular cab sinking into a lake. Then I see this Ford Superduty pulling it out along with a boat hooked to the Chevy. The accouncer comes on bragging out some highest torque in its class crap. When the guy with the Ford is getting into his truck, the Chevy wife turns to her husband and says "well that sunk fast" and the Ford guy says under his breath "Like a rock...".

    I can't help but wonder why Ford is always resorting to this kinda of adversting. Oh well, all the Ford's over 20 years old are virtually non-existent.

    Anyone remember the Chevy comercial where at the end a broken light bulb was swinging across the screen? The "ford" better idea light. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif They all do it at one time or the other. Ford had to come up with something cause Chevy's taking over the truck market. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I try to keep an open mind, but for the life of me I can not understand how they can sell those Super Dutys.
    They are the biggest, seccond thought-slapped togather, hack I've ever driven and worked on. Unbelievable!

    It's probably because Ford will finance anyone who can fog-up a mirror.

    The only reason Fords even sell is they build 'em and sell 'em so cheap, then make up the loss with their service departments /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Re: BOOO! Bad Ford Commericial!

    What I find interesting is that last year furd posted a 5.4 BILLION dollar loss, while GM posted a profit. How can a corporation eat a 5.4 billion dollar loss? I just don't get it.

    Re: BOOO! Bad Ford Commericial!

    Being an owner of both marques, I've gotta say one is no worse than the other with advertising. As far as the Super Duty goes, look at the competition it's had - the 6.5 was no screamer by any means, and GM's 3/4 - 1 ton lineup card really sucked before the Silverado line came out (88-98): IF you could find anything other than a ext cab K1500 Z71 on the lot (atleast in AZ), odds were that it'd be a white C2500 Cheyenne single cab with a 350. Ford also has been responsive to commercial customers' needs where GM has been strictly focused on the "personal use" market. I remember when Ford came out with the fixed-rate repairs at their dealerships GM had commercials saying that they didn't need the fixed rates bacause GM products didn't need to be repaired as often.

    Re: BOOO! Bad Ford Commericial!

    once u work at a furd dealership you'll never ever buy one, especially after looking when u look at all the recalls they have. Plus we get new cars w/ single digit miles on em in the shop for f'd up reasons, we had a Blackwood Demo that needed a new tranny, and the new maruader had electrical problems.

    Re: BOOO! Bad Ford Commericial!

    Thats funny,I worked for Ford for 8 years and if I ever buy a new vehicle it will be a Ford.In fact Im looking for a Ford tow rig right now.Every manufacturer has there problems but I think Ford makes a supirior product when compared to the rest.

    What do you do at the dealership?

    Re: BOOO! Bad Ford Commericial!

    i grew up on fords, never had many major problems, most ran excellent...
    the only reoccuring problem was the exhaust wouldnt last more than a year...
    my parents just thought it was shitty material ford used..
    i certainly didnt tell then that everytime the exhaust fell off was when i was jumping it over a big hump in the road at 70...
    oh the things we do as kids just to impress a few girls
    hahahaha
