U Haul screws over Ford Owners

I don't like Ford and don't own one, but I think this is stupid. U Haul will not rent to anyone who owns a Ford Explorer. For the sounds of it, it's because to the Firestone Tire deal. the other thing, what about the Mountaineer, Aviator, ot the Mazda Navajo? Well to my friends who own Fords, I won't ever deal with U Haul again. I think this is bull shit! I think this is a joke, they would rent to me if I went with my Dodge with Firestone tires I bet. If they don't want business from Ford people, they shouldn't get business from anyone.

UHaul wouldn't rent a car trailer to my friend with a 02 Dodge Durango R/T for no reason. They just said it was company policy. Maybe they're sponsored by GM undercover...

Screw Uhaul. I've seen guys pulling 7X16's with an explorer no problems. I seriously hope Ford Explorer owners file a suit against them for this.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

This is a bummer since i have a ford explorer. The standard email they send back to pissed off people is that it's not a safety issue, it's a business issue. Whatever the fuck that's supposed to mean.

It is bullshit, well when they go out of business, they will know why. You don't do shit like this, it's like telling people, if you own a Chevy S-10 you can't shop at Target or something.

This is what I personally think of U Haul

The bottom line is a Mecury Moutaineer is the same vehicle as a Ford Explorer, just badged differently, but Uhaul has no problem with it. So I'd like to figure out wtf is going on.

You'll get the same form letter all the other exploder owners got.

Maybe write into "Click and CLack". Thats those Mazzoli brothers who do the car advise articles in teh sunday papers throughout the US.D

Uhaul was on fox news for ripping people off.


The only thing i like about them is their propane filling.

You didn't hear all the U-haul requirements:

Like the one your engine has to produce 1000lb of torque, at 30,000 rpm. This is the only veichle allowed now.

You dont need a reason to ride, just gas money and lots of time.
