I am sorry for my belated newbie of myself here....

I am deaf and happily married deaf wife for nearly 27 years this March 20th and we have two cats.

We have two Mopar vehicles which are 1988 Dodge B-250 van (that's mine) and my wife's 1983 Dodge W150 truck. It's good to be back Mopar again that my wife said that because when she was about 17 yrs old that time she had her first license..... 1969 Plymouth RoadRunner and so on..... Long list about many Mopar cars through years and year before met me and got married and had another many many cars through years until now.... LONG LIST!!!!

We started dislike FORD's (synonym of Found On Road Dead) because back in 1988, i bought brand new 1987 Ford Escort GL and 250 miles later the starter quits and luckily that Ford dealer replaced it at no charge. But my wife had 1982, 1987, 1989, 2000 Ford Mustang which did not giving us problem except those Escort's were... In 1992, we bought 1991 Ford Escort GT and drove it around so many years until 2001 that started problem like radiator neck started cracked and water pump started to failed twice. We sold that car same year as 2001. And then we bought 1981 Ford Fairmont station wagon for awhile but it needed A/c recharge, sunroof leaks, radiator replace and tune up. So we donated the car (Fairmont) to some church or something... We bought 1971 Ford F100 with bad transmission and bad steering gear box which it does not have power steering at all... that scared me alot when driving on the curve and it almost went straight when driving on the curve... oh S**T.... And also we bought 1969 Chevy C-10 truck with stepside with 307 motor.... we drove both trucks for a while but we sold them for a reason... And then we bought 1998 Ford Escort wagon in 2006 and drove it for a while until November 9 2010 (which is on my birthday) it broke down that morning as we were get ready to go to San Francisco to see our specialist doctor there.... And one month later, we were ended up buying used 1996 Ford Thunderbird on financial and we found it out that it has steering problem like clunk very loud when make right or left turns and then we did making 8 months payments on it and the engine started acted weird (we called it lemon car) and we called the Financial company to have it towed away as we volunteered repo'd on it... and then rode on bus for one month before we decided to buy a van (which is mine) and then two or three months later bought my wife's truck....

Seems that Ford vehicles have problems lately except Mustangs did not give her (my wife) any problem..... WOW!

Dizzy, my wife had it (1969 RoadRunner) in 1976 but the third member of rear-end axle was busted out same year as she had her first driver's license that time. So she got rid of it... Oh well!
