I own a Mercury Grand Marquis. CNN ran an article about rear end collisions (over 60mph) resulting in fires and ultimately deaths by fire. They stated all police cars in this series have been fitted with gas tank protection kits for this reason.
My husband and I have called, Emailed repeately over a six week period to find out where we can purchase this kit to no avail. We have called " Ford" and every dealersip in the South Florida area with no luck.
We have received such replies as " call 1-800-we-don"t care" from a parts person to a reply of " Lady the back seat in police cars are different than your car" face to face from a service person. How stupid do Ford employees think the public is?
The emails to Ford have been answered " your comments have been directed to the appropriate department." Furthermore, that police cars are at high risk for high speed rear end crashes. I dare anyone at Ford to drive this car on I-95 in South Flordia and not keep it at 70mph. My husband and I are Road Reps., and drive approximately 40,000 miles a year. Guess how many of those miles are at speeds of over 70mph? It is no wonder Ford is in the shape they are, they treat the consumers like idiots!
My husband and I are long time Ford people, no more! Hello Japan! To each and every soon to be unemployed Ford worker, we consumers are fed-up the treatment!
