Great to hear.

Our agency finally started getting a few AWD Explorers, but they're still being outfitted at this time. Also, our agency is slated to get the first batch of '14s that roll off the line. Hopefully, the problems are fixed by then.

I always thought it was my wife getting older, fatter and uglier all the time.

Nice try, but everyone knows West Texas women never git ugly.

Wonder if this will fix the leaking fuel pump issue.

We have had several of the new Fords, both sedan and SUV need fuel pump replacements due to leaks that were filling the cabin with gasoline fumes. I don't drive one, so I don't know specifics, but I know that there is supposed to be a fix coming out. Must be it.

Other than that, people seem to like them for the most part. Biggest gripes are the small fuel tanks and the car is not a good size for uh ... "corpulent" cops.

Everytime I gas my Explorer up and don't stop at the click, it pukes gas all over the place. The fuel funnel sustem sucks a bag on these new whips.

Wonderful. Delay after delay and we still don't have our car after a fricking year. Now just toss another delay on top.

I'm sorry... I just drove a new Ford Interceptor this week and I didn't really like it. I'm only 5'11" 180 and I felt crammed inside. The view from inside also sucks. Can't see behind you or out to your typical mirror blind spot areas. The back up camera and blind spot detector help when you're driving but I don't think it would be too hard to sneek up on you because of the poor view. It also it tough to get in and out of because of the stupid door straps. They do look nice though.

I did also get to drive the new Ford SUV too and I really liked it! Much more room and much easier to see out of. I could do in a in depth review if there hasn't already been one and I have a bunch of pics of the one we got.

Coloshootr - thanks for your observation.

Today I have come up with a new premise ....

Modern American automobiles are designed for women. Generally they are smaller than American men.

Now I know why Ford sold 650,000 F150s last year.

Lol...ours just got delivered on Wednesday. I just get to try it out for the first time. I agree that it's certainly a little tight. Not quite uncomfortable for me, but not ideal either. The back seat is small. The best part is that two of our guys can't fit in it. Serves them right for not trying it out beforehand.
