Please. 160k? That is peanuts. Small turbos will run 300+k in a heartbeat. Wake up sweetie. It is 2012 ...not 1972. Buy a Crapler if you like. Ford might crap out, too though. VW small engines rock forever. lol. you are funny
skip the ecoboost, and give me a proper 1.8 or 2 litre diesel that all the europeans can get. focus would be a major seller in canada, imo, if it came with a diesel engine.
After reading about these offerings, and all the great technical innovations, I have NO doubt that Ford is making the BEST North American automobiles !
