@AcuteEngels I’d be surprised+ if they could save an average of $750. We pay USAA $1200 a year for our ‘05 Ford Escape & ‘16 Lincoln MKX suv. We’ve been with USAA for years but are questioning our loyalty bc they advertise on the Fishstick heir’s show.
Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon are basically upgraded version of Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban. The Lincoln Navigator is a premium Ford Expedition. The Lincoln MKZ is Ford Fusion. Lincoln MKT from Ford Explorer. Lincoln MKX from Ford Edge. Aston Martin’s city car, the Cygnet, is based on Toyota IQ. The Cadillac XLR-V is a luxurious Corvette with automatic transmission. The Lexus LX is based on Toyota Land Cruiser. Infiniti QX is based on Nissan patrol. The Lexus GX is modified from Toyota LC Prado. Acura shares many platforms with Honda.
I’ve owned dozens of cars: Mercedes, Chevy Chevelle hot rod, Corvettes, Pontiac Firebirds, full sized vans, Suburbans, Ford and GMC pick-up trucks, Hummer H2, Lincoln MKVII, MKVIII, Navigators, and MKX, Cadillac El Dorado and STS, Ford Expeditions and a new Ford Explorer that I just bought for my wife. My daily driver is a 2007 BMW M6 convertible. It is without a doubt the finest vehicle that I’ve ever owned. It’s not the least expensive and most trouble free (that would be my 2005 Hummer H2 that I bought in February of 2006 and still have today), but the BMW is the best built and the absolute most fun to drive of any vehicle that I’ve ever owned. It’s a ten cylinder automobile and I drive the car really hard. I drive fast and I break hard. As a result my BMW needs service that most BMW’s wouldn’t need. I put upgraded brakes that cost me a few thousand dollars. I’m blessed to be in a position that if the vehicle blows up, I can afford to buy another one. What does it feel like to drive the car: It feels like I have one of the coolest cars on the road nearly always. It feels like I’m a rock star when people in the next car smile and wave when my top is down. It feels like I have one of the fastest, best handling vehicles that I’ve ever driven. I’ve driven Ferrari and Lamborghini, so I know that’s not the case, but when I pull out of my driveway on the way to work, I am looking forward to the drive every time. Physically, my BMW M6 feels like it hugs the road much like a Lamborghini even though it doesn’t have all wheel drive, and it accelerates like a Ferrari, so for me, right now, this has been the perfect car.
I’ve owned just about every single major car brand except Toyota (no real reason, other than they never had something I really liked when I was in the market). Have had Fords, GM, Chrysler, Porsche, Aston Martin, Audi, VW, Nissan, Mazda, Subaru, Honda, Acura, Mercedes, BMW, and plenty more that I forgot most likely. I’ve owned way over 100 cars, which means I am seriously OCD. Currently own Ford, Dodge, Jeep, Mercedes, Porsche, Audi. Have owned a number of Fords. They are fine. They are no different than nearly every car I’ve ever owned. Every car breaks. Every car needs service. Every car can run forever if well maintained and dealt with promptly when things break. Everyone has a “story” about a car they. their grandmother, their friends brothers uncles chiropractor, their great aunt, owned. Its always heresay and its either the “best” or the “worst” car. When someone complains that a car broke at 150,000 miles, and claim the car brand is terrible, that’s ridiculous. Cars are only designed for about 150K miles. If they go farther, that’s great, but no car is designed to go forever, because no one would want to pay for such a car. These days, most cars are much the same. The differences in “quality” and reliability are miniscule. Cars are consumer products that are sold globally, and most are competently made and get the job done. Would I consider a Ford? Of course. If they had a product that was competitive in a segment I was looking at I would absolutely consider one. Last car purchased was about 10 months ago. Looked at Jaguar, Ford, Lincoln, Mercedes, Jeep, Land Rover, Audi, Maserati, and a few others. Was looking to replace a Dodge Durango that had an expiring 4 year lease. I came away realizing more than ever that they are all basically the same at this point other than badges, marketing, and other intangibles. Ended up with a Grand Cherokee. Runner up was the Lincoln MKX (A rebadged Ford Edge) that was absurdly expensive for what it was. Would have gotten the Jaguar F Pace if the lease rate wasn’t double that of the Jeep. Have had about a dozen Fords. They all ran fine, and many are still running years later with 150K plus miles on them (I keep track when I know the owner).
There are actually a number of good reasons why Lincoln Towncars dominate the luxury transportation market, whether in San Francisco, New York, or any other major U.S. city. 1. As new cars, they provide a great ratio of price to luxury. The rear (passenger) seats in particular are much nicer than any other vehicle in the price range ($40K - 60K), and every luxury option basically comes standard. 2. Because they're based on the ubiquitous Ford Panther platform (shared with Crown Vics, etc.) replacement parts and repair services are very inexpensive, especially compared to other luxury brands. Damage to the steel frame can also be easily hammered out and repainted, unlike many expensive cars that require entirely new side-panels to fix cosmetic damage. For smaller limo companies, these lower maintenance costs and quick repair times can often be the difference between profitability and failure. 3. They are absolute workhorses. Even the Towncars that look brand new often have 100K+ miles. There are many Towncars that easily last longer than 500K miles, sometimes even with the original transmission intact. 4. They have become the industry standard. In case this feels like circular logic, try asking any limo company to get rid of them! They'll tell you it's what their customers expect. Keep in mind that the Towncar is the #1 brand of car that seniors buy (http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20111208/AUTO03/112080325/1149/auto01/Senior-car-buyers-prefer-old-favorites) and you'll have sense in part for why this is. The Towncar seems to evoke the old-money limo feel that most customers expect from luxury transportation. 5. Ford/Lincoln customized the Towncar to suit the limo industry almost perfectly. It's commonly available in a 6" extended leg-room model (Most Uber drivers use these "L" series Towncars), and the trunk is big enough for a few bodies plus luggage. With all that said, however, it's worth noting that 2011 was the last year that the Towncar was manufactured. Ford/Lincoln is attempting to replace it with the aesthetically questionable MKX (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:07-Lincoln-MKX.jpg), which shares few of the favorable characteristics that make the Towncar so popular. So while the population of serviceable Towncars dwindles over the next several years, we here at Uber are presented with a pretty interesting challenge. What comes next? There are actually no obvious answers - it may take years for the automobile industry to evolve a suitable replacement for the Towncar, which has been far and away the best vehicle for the limo industry in the last decade.

You were told broad stereotypes that largely aren’t true. Ford sold back their stake in Mazda because of the Flat Rock plant. The Flat Rock plant was a factory that Ford and Mazda built together under the name AutoAlliance in the late 80’s. It was a very efficient plant and built the Mazda 626, Mazda MX-6, and Ford Probe. However it was always underutilized. In 2003 it was retooled to build the Mazda 6 and in 2005, Ford began building the Ford Mustang there. The new Mustang was a huge success and Ford began to become resentful that every Mazda that rolled out of the plant effectively “cost” them a Mustang. This caused friction between the two companies, which also led to disputes over manufacturing defects - ie whether or not the level of defects coming out of the Flat Rock plant was acceptable or not and if not, whose fault it was. Throughout the 90’s Ford and Mazda shared a number of cars in what is called “badge engineering”. Ford sold the Mazda 323 as the Mercury Tracer and used a Mazda drivetrain and suspension in the Mercury Capri roadster. Mazda sold the Ford Ranger as the Mazda B-Series , the Ford Explorer 2 door as the Mazda Navajo, and the Ford Escape as the Mazda Tribute. The Mazda 6 chassis was the design that spawned the first generation Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan, Lincoln Zephyr/MKZ, Ford Edge, and Lincoln MKX. However, philosophies and standards continued to diverge. Mazda felt that they weren’t getting anything out of Ford anymore other than a headache and Ford felt that their own technology was sufficient and that they were on the right path and no longer needed Mazda (and they wanted Mazda out of the Flat Rock plant). So Ford gave back to Mazda a significant portion of the company that they owned and in exchange got full control of the Flat Rock plant. Now all US market Mazdas are true Mazdas built in Mazda plants in Japan under very uniform standards and practices. That’s something that pretty much no other manufacturer can say (that all their cars are built in the same country to the same standard).
Both are basura.
You can’t really compare Lexus to Ford (though you could compare Ford Motor Company to all of Toyota). Ford’s F-150 is arguably a more successful product than Toyota’s Tundra and Toyota’s Lexus’s RX is more successful than Ford’s Lincoln MKX. Toyota as a company sells more vehicles and scores higher on reliability so on those metrics you could probably say they are a “better” manufacturer.
If you want something that has a third row but can fit everything you throw at it get a Ford Expedition/Lincoln Navigator regular sized or extended. Otherwise if you are fine with smaller then between your options both could be good but the Ford Explore is really nice and has an ecoboost option I bet with more gears then Toyota has meaning more mpg so I’d choose Ford there as well there.
