Ford is taking a big hit on their C-Max Hybrid.

How long ago did you have your Fords? I have never owned one, but CR seems to show several models that have improved. And I want a Mustang, eventually

Admittedly it's been 20 years, but, once you're burned, it's tough to go back. Been a Honda person the past 23 years, and they're rock solid.

I have stopped ruling out brands a long time ago, but I have been buying Japanese cars for a long time now, mostly for their reliability. But I've had my heart set on a Mustang for years. But I've always found a reason not to buy one.

I have a 2007 Mustang that I bought new and it's been solid. No major repairs or issues at all since I've owned it.

The CR reviews have been solid. There's always some "other" reason why I don't buy one. Wife wanted something to haul stuff around. Gas prices went up and I needed something with really good gas mileage. Stuff like that. But, when I pay off my Sentra, I'm definitely (probably? maybe?) buying one

To keep it on topic. I hope that Ford does something with Mustangs during TAR this year

I would be pretty amazed to see Mustangs in any of the places TAR frequents.

My dad had a 1966 Ford Mustang fastback with a blue printed 289. He loved it. My mom hated it and he sold it. I still see it driving around on occasion.

Believe me, I looked. Couldn't find any online. Was going to download the episode and make some screencaps myself, but just haven't done it yet.

Edit: Here's are a couple, but I was looking for something that showed both of them better.

They used them a couple seasons ago - and gave the winners of the leg one each. IIRC they had to drive a course in a certain time - and it was somewhere the Mustang is not normally sold (England, maybe?).

I think it was Belgium or The Netherlands.

Edit: It was Belgium, in Season 19.

They each got their choice. How would it work otherwise? Sure, the docs are married, so they could easily share the prize, but what if Leo and Jamal won, or the Ice Girls? How would they share a single car?

IIRC, every time they've given away cars on TAR, it's always been one car to each competitor.

They each got one. And I think it was any car made by Ford that has Ecoboost (I think that was the term) and he rattled off 4 or 5 models. Even though they are married, I would think most married folks have their own cars, especially doctors. Not a bad haul

Not a bad haul if they can sell them as new cars. There's no way they're going to evict either the Lexus or the Mercedes from the garage to make room for some tinny turbocharged 4 banger.

I don't know their financial situation of course. ER doctors could mean they are in residency, and they don't have the financial wherewithal to have an upscale car. Although they WERE able to take a month or more off to do the race.

And hey, having a Ford Explorer or something similar as a 3rd car for hauling stuff might not be bad for them. I know people who have their nice commuter cars and then a SUV of some sort the haul stuff around.

The Explorer offers a V6 Ecoboost. Would be a nice ride.

Duh. You're right. That only makes sense.

Given their ages, I'd say it's extremely unlikely that they are both still in residency.

Yeah, I hadn't realized they are in their 40s.

Have you driven any of the cars with that ecoboost engine? They're actually pretty respectable. I test-drove an Edge back when I was looking to replace my SUV, and I was really pretty impressed with how the one in that moved the car around. I wouldn't have guessed that it was a 4 cyl turbo. (And our other car *did* have a 4 cyl turbo at the time, a VW Passat, and the engine was nowhere near as good as the one in the Ford.)
