Bashing The 6.0

I find it somewhat ammusing that people who do not and have not owned a 6.0 would take it upon themselves to bash the 6.0

What I mean is, there have been several threads/posts lately where members get on a the 6.0 bashing bandwagon. Some of these folks have not even sat in a 6.0 much less driven/owned one.

I think it is a little hypocritical to read something and then just spew.

We all know the problems associated with the 6.0, so inform people don't just bash.

The 7.3's have their share of problems as well, so no one is immune to problems.

I don't see the 6.0 guy's bragging about how much nicer the ride/interior/performance/handling etc. is.

Just remember an argument can be made for/against anything, last time I checked we all drove FORDS.
