Just figured I'd mention. As some of you know I work in a Ford/Mitsubishi dealer. I am a Mitsubishi Technician and try to touch Fords as little as I can. Well I worked today, and Saturdays are pretty much always all Ford work. Got a Taurus in for inspection. Needed front struts. Fine, my writer sells it and I get off to work. Start going through all the normal crap I'd do to do front struts, then I hit a road block. I can't get the damn things out. Wtf?? I fought them for a while trying everything I could think and they just wouldn't go. So I ask one of my teammates. "Oh yea you have to lower the subframe.." "are you ****ing kidding me?" "nope, its just a little bit left that you can't get them out right?" So a set of front struts that I got paid 2 hours for, took me almost 3. Damn Ford. I swear they have to hire the worst engineers on the face of the planet. I can do front struts on about any Mitsubishi in about 30 minutes. Out, swap the springs, and back in. AND!!!! They pay better on Mitsubishis too so yea, **** fords.
