i seriously cannot stop laughing...but i shouldn't be laughing, but you take your sorrows and make them comedy. You're awesome, and i'm glad to hear that you're not giving up. If it was me, i would have gave up when it was the head gaskets. Cheers to you hun!Originally posted by mrcow32@Jun 12 2004, 12:16 AM
Basically, I quickly discovered I had acquired the SHO from hell.
No, I take that back. The devil took one look at this car and said, "Damn, man, I don't think so! Pass this thing on to someone else!"
My car takes one look at those head gaskets, decides, "Uh...nah,"
He orders them for me, and I get the bill...$110! Are they made of solid gold?

I don't think he meant Ford was perfect. Because there not. All manufactures make lemons! :huh: But in this case I would agree with Jason that it was beat on and not maintained. It is 11 years old now, and all of a sudden don't become a lemon or just a bad car they made.Somebody sold you a car that may not have been properly maintained and has problems because of it. Is that Ford's fault? Not hardly.You know, sometimes a car just isn't as good as others. I'm sorta getting sick of some of the people who think Fords are perfect and if you have problems it's either your fault or the fault of whoever owned the car before you and didn't maintain it. Sometimes that's just not the case.
Not at all! :notworthy:Also, is it sad if I still love Ford, and the SHO?
I completely understand that and I'll agree with you that there are bad ones here and there for whatever reason. It sucks to get one of them, but when a company makes hundreds of thousands of cars there has to be some margin of error, unfortunately. My last car (my 99 Taurus) had loads of problems which I suspect were due to a lack of maintenance by the previous owner, which is why I was ranting about maintenance, etc. I'm glad to see that the majority of the members of this club have been encouraged to take care of their cars and if they didn't know how before, they can learn here.Originally posted by dIESEL600@Jun 12 2004, 02:43 AM

I'm sorta getting sick of some of the people who think Fords are perfect and if you have problems it's either your fault or the fault of whoever owned the car before you and didn't maintain it. Sometimes that's just not the case. My old '93 bull was a good car for the most part, a few problems here and there, but nothing major while we owned it. Now my '99 is really starting to piss me off. We bought it in 2000, so it was only a year old. The car is only five years old now with 55k miles, and the amount of problems I have had is simply unacceptable to me. We have had two leaking wheel cylinders, a bad wheel bearing, bad cv joint, broken front coil spring (which btw broke while I was driving it, along with sagging rear springs, and no one hardly ever rides in the back of my car), and now I still have a leaking power steering pump to deal with and a strange metallic rattling noise I can't seem to diagnose (see my recent post in maintenance and repair). And I'm not sure yet, but it seems like my transmission has started getting a little goofy lately too.
Now I know alot of us here are Ford enthusiasts, and there's nothing wrong with a little brand loyalty, but let's be realistic too. When it comes to maintenance, I take excellent care of my car. Those of us here that b**** about our plethora of problems aren't necessarily here to bash Ford and be trolls, the fact is some of these cars are more reliable than others. I'd buy another Ford, but I'd consider alot of other cars too. Eh, that's all.
Are you saying you want to start out like this :argue: and then do this :slap: and then this unchbob: and make him look like this :bandaged:And if anyone ever sees the previous owner of my car, wanna do ol' Mr. Cow a favor and give them a swift kick in the goods for me? I think they have it coming to them...
