    Once again, FORD has time to obsess over stupid music and sports figures and not pay the slightest attention to the quality of their products.

      The Lincoln Nautilus is one of the segment’s best rated products in-terms of quality, along with the Edge.

      1. Cigna

        2024 models, made in China, sold in America.

    The real question is how many of the millions of recalled vehicles are actually being fixed.
    Buyers beware if anyone is interested in buying a new/used vehicle from Recall Motors, Failure Farley at his best.
