Actually the first guy to answer is correct, hahaha
As far as Ford goes, I would feel the safest buy from them from the other two brands (CM and Chrysler). Ford has stepped up and improved it's quality, don't worry too much about hype. I owned a Ford Taurus before, worst car I've ever owned, granted it was a 96, it was unreliable.
But that's not the case with the new Ford's.
So far it's scored a 9.4 from edmunds.com from consumer reviews
Good luck with your buy
