Ford and Renault join forces


Recommended Posts

Ford has announced plans to acquire French automaker Renault, and engineering teams have already joined forces to create the perfect small car for women.


Mixing the Renault "Clio" and the Ford "Taurus" the have designed the "Clitaurus"it comes in pink and the average male car thief wont be able to find it -let alone turn it on- even if someone tells him where it is and how to to do it


Rumour has it though, that it leaks transmission fluid once a month and can be a real bitch to start in the morning, some have reported that on cold winter mornings when you really need it you cant get it to turn over


New models are initially fun to own, but very costly to maintain, and horribly expensive to get rid of. Used models may initially appear to have kerb appeal and a low price but eventually have an increased appetite for fuel and the kerb weight typically increases with age. Manufacturers are baffed as to how the size of the boot increases but say that the paint may just make it LOOK bigger


This model is not expected to reach collector status, most owners find it best to lease one and replace it as needed. :wink: :wink: :wink:

I like kerb appeal but if caught out it flicks you over, but the best views are had there.


Of course colour coding comes into it, but allways compare the side and front or orientations or you might find a bum model.


As with the rest of the car market its like the opposite sex if its not yours you hammer it and it goes twice as fast as intended.


New models should allways be tested first by the press then you are in for fewer nasty suprises, its suprising just what flashy trim hides around the chassis.


Fewer greasing point involve less labour but premature marking and splits in the cheaper decor are hard to disguise.


Security never as been a strong point and its easy to break in pinch the jewels, remember a flat key fob battery is poor protection.


Lastly recycling "end of use" allways difficult to predict, your best hope is a DIY person who if more skilled at body repair will be able to fix at a lower price.

Advertising on the free and open market can be difficult and the question of return after some use is ever present.
