My dear friend, at least there are some who can claim to be Ford fans. Given the way cars are treated (as reported on this very thread), unfortunately there would be some who can never have the privilege of being fan of any brand, leave alone Ford
May God bless their current and all future cars.
EDIT - why did an old adage just struck me out of the blue: a bad carpenter always blames his tools

It is (as a fiesta fanboy myself) I can understand the anger of fiesta fans.
Coming to brand loyalty, I have answered this in my previous posts, the whole article is about coming out of the Tunnel vision of brand loyalty & assess your car independently, unbiased.
If 99% of the users of particular brand or car are happy, & your car starts giving problems ; you land up in 1%. So as far as your experience is concerned it is going to be 100%
I did not mean it to hit below the belt, I have never done that. This kind of article cannot be written by a person who believes in hitting below the Belt.
I could have written the article just highlighting the issues with the A.S.S. and conveniently forgetting my mistakes. (I had posted many smilies like this in the original article , that were removed to make it reader friendly )
Kindly try to understand the spirit of the article , in which it was written, I have never mentioned the name of the Service center in the whole post. This is not to malign brand or car; just a spread sheet of my side of story. I wanted to share the experiences with a car which I loved passionately. But, Any day My Nephew or cousin asks for driving it (though there is a chance that it could be damaged) My answer will just be to handover the keys; because People matter to me most than anything else.
''We should love human beings & use the things; Our Troubles start when we do it the other way.." Swami Vivekananda
I am pretty straight forward; if you feel like being hit below the belt, I am extremely sorry for my words.
Finally, this reminds me of An adage used by Arnav on Times Now,
''If you don't like the message; then Shoot the messenger !
