Just wondering grin
Are mn sponsored by them or something?
-- Not distracting myself with useless ponderings at all--

Wondered the same. Could do with a general car/motors page (unless there is one I haven't found?).

I think it might be a front for mumsnet's dodgy crime/mafia side. All the ford stuff is really a code language for their dealings.

Anniegetyourgun Sat 22-Oct-16 18:10:24

I don't think it's about cars at all. Did you look at any threads in the topic?

BombadierFritz Sat 22-Oct-16 18:10:51

there is one
the ford one is left over from a trial/sponsored feedback thread apparently
although I like the idea of mumsnetters all driving ford smaxs

StrongTeaHotShower Sat 22-Oct-16 18:11:08

I did. Lots of talk about galaxy's confused

Scribblegirl Sat 22-Oct-16 18:11:28

Haven't gone on it, but could be Gina Ford related?

Anniegetyourgun Sat 22-Oct-16 18:11:51

Oh, I've just looked at it and it is about cars! Well well.

Scribblegirl Sat 22-Oct-16 18:12:12

X post! Obviously not then grin

Some people test drove Fords to review on mn a few years back now

Ford Focus RS for me, none of that S-Max stuff grin

I think it was something to do with a long-ago corporate deal.

It could be a talk board for fans of Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy? grin

A few years ago there were various testing things done by mumsnetters - some people got to test drive cars for a number of weeks and there was an event at Donington (I went to that one).

Anyone know about the Ford SMax or a Grand CMax? Would you recommend either and can you fit 3 car seats across the back row?

EmpressKnowsWhereHerTowelIs Sat 22-Oct-16 18:24:13

I was wondering why Zaphod called Ford Ford instead of Ix, but I've found the answer now.

pinkandsparklytoo Sat 22-Oct-16 18:31:34

Yes three car seats fit easily in the S-max. We have a infant seat, a erf seat and a high back booster in ours.
