Doesn't seem that this was enough to help stop Ford's downward spiral.

the family station wagon was fine for family dog and kids. today, i have to consider my dogs, and grandkids. so it is about time EG, I do agree with you, they consider the needs of the family with furry friends.

This may be an idea whose time has come. After all, pets are family too.

We're thinking about getting a new vehicle soon and having something that make it easy to transport pet carriers is a must for me.

Pet Lovers may consider Ford over another car, so good marketing!

Agree it is the people who practice common sense that make the pet safe.
Good story though.

Whatever it takes to sell cars in this economy. It is not the car that makes the pet safe, it's the owners who restrain them either by straps or crate.

Matt -- It must seem I'm picking on you, but "broadcasted" is not the past tense of "broadcast." I can't focus on your subject now.

Sounds like the car industry is noticing that people have pets, sometimes only pets, and people much of the time feel as strongly toward their pets as their children. Safety first should have been the motto of car companies for sometime now. And it also kind of sounds like a gimmick at the same time.

I am confused at how 6 airbags and a V6 make a vehicle a shoe in for a pet owner.

It probably doesn't, but being advertised as being a pet friendly car will draw in a lot of people....

Hmmm.... Suprised by that. Although without some type of crate or restraint harness, chances are they'll still get very injured in a wreck... (even thrown from the car).

I had never heard of that radio station before. It is nice that they review things for the pet owners. I wonder what else they have reviewed.

This seems like one of the few things Ford is doing right. The US auto industry is a mess and appealing to pet owners is not going to help them out a lot. With the amount of money people spend on their pets, you would think auto makers would put some more pet friendly features into their vehicles.

I would think any larger vehicle would be better for our pets....I do not have much faith in the American car manuafacturers. They are all paid too much and have not made a car as good as our foreign competitors in years. Plus the cars just do not last.....

Probably they are thinking it will grab more consumers....a gimmick, doubt it will help. american auto makers need to turn a lot around to catch up with some of the international ones.

Who did Ford pay off! I cannot for the life of me see that much difference in cars. We usually buy Chrysler products, and if we get a big enough car we have room for our pets. If we get a small car, we don't. It's that simple.

I don't know how scientific this study and findings are, but I agree this is a good marketing strategy. I know I am concerned about my animals safety in my cars.

Kudos to Ford, maybe the other car makes could learn. Their sales might go up if they catered to pets as well as people?

All cars should have pets in mind but I will not buy a ford just because they say they are thinking about pets. My pets could care less what I drive as long as they can go on occasion.
