The company that first successfully mass-marketed cars will soon no longer be selling any. Well, not many.

Other than the Mustang and maybe a version of the Focus, the only “cars” Ford will be selling in the future will be jacked-up cars and a few real SUVs — the ones based on trucks, like the F-150-based Expedition and Lincoln Navigator.

Others represent serious safety concerns.

There are many reasons MONTCLAIR drivers neglect their routine car care. Some of the more common ones are complacency, lack of confidence, lack of trust and budget issues.

PICKUP TRUCK sales are the
hottest they've been in a
decade, and it's no wonder:

bumpy, jarring experience that
you have to endure.
Truck makers today are
building pickups with broader
appeal, with a softer ride and
more safety, convenience, and
comfort features.
As a result, pickups are
now attracting more buyers,
including those who like the

The serpentine belt drives the accessories attached to the engine, such as the alternator, power steering pump, AC compressor, and water pump and radiator fan. Some vehicles use a single belt to drive all pulleys, whereas other vehicles may have two or three belts to drive different components.

A broken belt can result in the vehicle being undriveable.
