    Watching the NFL game Carolina vs Denver. Ford Motors just ran a commercial thanking First Responders (Fire, poilce, EMS, etc) thanking them. I was shocked. Rare that you ever see support for 1st responders so publicly on such a big forum like an NFL TV game.

    Im in the market for a new ride anyway. Ford it'll be.

    You're going to purchase a car, solely based on who they thank in a commercial? 0.o

    The intelligence of people who voted in the re-election of a failed president on display.

    Maybe. Im not picky. I was 100% going to get another pickup. And...I actually do let some stuff affect where I spend my money. I couldnt pick between F150, Ram and several Chevy trucks. Think that ad, little as it may be, just nudged me toward the F150.

    Actually, Ford was the only motor co that didn't accept the Bush/Obama bailout. They very likely weren't pro-Obama.

    But some things are bigger than politics.

    I looked at a Tacoma too. Great truck, just didn't feel comfy in it. The older models were a bit small inside.

    I really liked the Ram, huge interior. It is down to Ram vs F150. Leaning F150.

    When I purchased my last car it was between Ford and Honda, the Honda drove better.

    It just seems strange that a commercial instead of, price, gas milage, horse power... Even where they manufacture, is the deciding factor....

    The Tacoma is the smaller model truck. The Tundra compares to the F150.

    From what I hear, the Tundra is as solid as it gets.

    That's because they don't use union workers making any outrageous salary demands and take long breaks, get away with sleeping on the job..The Japanese tend to put a little bit more time and care into the vehicles they construct.
