Congrats man! I know a few people at work with this car. As prejudiced as I am against Ford, I can tell you they haven't had a single problem.

@Rocketman - I'll be keeping the car for quite some time, 5 years sounds just about right. The car has 35,000kms on it now, so probably 'till 160,000kms maybe more.

@Blades - She's running great, practically brand new with 35,000kms

@BigD - Thanks man

@T.Dot - I got a strong cash incentive from Ford and I didn't have to worry about a big depreciation hit

I've always been a Ford guy and I think that they deserve my support considering that they've clean up big time without taking tax payer money, looking forward to the euro Focus in the next few years as a possible second car ... still nothing comes close to the driving pleasure that comes with my bimmer

said the future 'quattro owner'...
LOL...I got the Quattro...put 12000km on it already and it runs perfectly....the previous owner did all the nasty under warranty repairs before I got it.I got the "warning list" from the Audi club as what to inspect to avoid future repairs,and no it wasnt as thick as the phone book,about ten problematic items but thank heaven easy fixes and no major parts.
