I have never heard of that one.

Those two phrases weren't made by me, I think people sort of say that everywhere.

If they took the Ford logo off and put a Toyota logo on it, no one would have anything bad to say. It's all about perception. I used to think the same way. In fact, the 2009/2010 Camry looks like a boring bag of ass next to the 2010 Taurus.

The 2010 Taurus is built on the same platform as the 2005-2007 Ford 500, and 2008-2009 Taurus, but has a completely different engine, transmission, subframe, and suspension, interior, and all the body panels. The only thing in common with the 500 is the approximate dimensions. Everything else is different.

Also, Toyota has taken over the lion's share of rental car fleet sales from Ford. There are way more Toyota rentals out there now than Fords, and possibly even GM. Wait until they all start coming back from the rentals and hitting the auctions, all those perceptions about Corollas/Camrys being imports and holding their values better are going to go right down the toilet.

I guess you're now ignoring information like JD Power rankings or Consumer Reports.

Ford Fusion is better in quality and reliability than the Camry or Accord acoording to JD and CR. Suck it up Timpo.

Oh, and the new Fusion Hybrid? Completely outclasses the Camry Hybrid and gets way better mileage.

yeah, Ford Sucks.
