Should Car2go Watch Out?

Ford is launching its own carsharing service in London called GoDrive to test out new ideas in the industry. It mixes a fleet of Ford Focus Electric and Fiesta 1.0 EcoBoost vehicles, and the service allows people to take one-day drives with guaranteed parking at the end.


Ford is expanding its door-latch recall to an additional 156,000 vehicles in North America because the doors might not close, or could open while driving. The affected models include certain years of the Fiesta, Fusion and Lincoln MKZ, and the majority are in the US.


Ford is recalling 591,177 vehicles from multiple model lines in four separate campaigns. The largest problem affects the possibility of fracturing bolts in cold-weather states.

Jessi And Patrick Get Schooled By Team O'Neil

Jessi and Patrick attend Team O'Neil Rally School in Dalton, NH to learn how to shred in the snow. Watch as our hosts check "attend rally school" off their list.


Ford has been spotted testing a modified version of its littlest hatchback alongside the new Focus RS that could foreshadow the arrival of a new Fiesta RS pocket rocket from the Blue Oval.


Ford Australia has come up with its own interesting take on Ken Block's Gymkhana franchise, releasing a cool stop-motion video called Beachkhana.


Old And New, These Are The Track Stars We Love

We like fast machines around here, and that means we're drawn to racecars past and present. Here's a list of our favorites.


With the launch of the Focus RS imminent, one of the next projects from Ford Performance might be a matching RS version of the subcompact Fiesta. A report suggests the tiny hot hatch could offer around 250 horsepower and all-wheel drive.


The SCCA has apparently found the Ford Fiesta at risk of rollover, and has, as a result, removed the budget hatchback from its list of eligible vehicles for solo autocross events in the H Stock category.


Today, Ford wishes its first experience with non-hybrid continuously variable transmissions was far behind it. The Blue Oval was awash in complaints and a couple of class-action lawsuits over the CVTs used in its 2005-2007 Ford Freestyle, Five Hundred and Mercury Montego models, which were a manufactured in Batavia, Ohio as part of a joint venture with ZF. The company gave up on the CVT after just two years, but with fuel economy standards pressing automakers to conjure new tricks, Ford's global


The gift list for the 12 Days of Christmas is frightfully heavy on birds, so surely no one will mind if we sub out the three French hens for Snowkhana 3. Ford of Europe is back with another stop-motion video that – like versions one and two – throws a 1:64-scale Ford Fiesta in Ken Block livery around a fabulous world of action figures and make believe.


As the old saying goes, "There's no replacement for displacement." But these days, many automakers are launching powerful, downsized engines that offer similar or better power output than their predecessors, all while offering improvements in fuel economy and emissions. These days, we're seeing automakers replacing eight-cylinder engines with turbocharged sixes, and the naturally aspirated six-cylinder motors are being phased out in favor of potent turbo fours. But Ford has gone even smaller, of


Consumer Reports has released its Annual Auto Reliability Survey and the results are, in a word, interesting. While we already covered the score-damaging effects of infotainment systems, there's another big angle to the data that's getting some attention – the utterly dismal scores of the Detroit Three's small car offerings.


It's always amazing to see how different kinds of racecars are made. Formula One racers are often constructed in modern architectural marvels that hint at some of the cutting-edge technology going into the racing. Conversely, rallying is all about sliding around on a varied course as fast as possible, but it often leaves a vehicle caked in mud. So it makes some sense Olsbergs MSE, or simply (OMSE) rally car shop in Nynashamn, Sweden, shows technological sophistication in a more down-to-earth set


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened a preliminary investigation on the 2011-2013 Ford Fiesta because the regulator has received 61 complaints from drivers, including one claim of an injury, about the doors on the subcompacts failing to latch and sometimes even flying open while driving. NHTSA has estimated that the problem could affect as many as 205,000 vehicles.


We may regard Ford as an American automaker, but ask a Brit and they may tell you otherwise. The Blue Oval has, after all, been selling cars in the UK since 1903, and started manufacturing there as far back as 1911 when it began local production of the Model T in Manchester. Last year Ford ended 100 years of vehicle manufacturing in the UK when the last Transit van rolled off the assembly line in Southampton, but it's still the biggest-selling automotive marque in Britain.
