Blue Oval’s rental health days

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

If you’re plan­ning on buy­ing a Ford Ranger or Es­cape but han­ker for some­thing a lit­tle more po­tent, sign­ing up to Ford Aus­tralia’s 2nd Car pi­lot pro­gram nets you up to two weeks in a Mus­tang. The down­side is that it isn’t free. Buy­ers pay a $500 en­rol­ment fee and the loan pe­riod then costs Ranger own­ers $250 per week and Es­cape own­ers $375. That’s still sig­nif­i­cantly cheaper than main­stream rental com­pa­nies. “With 2nd Car, new Ford buy­ers can own one ve­hi­cle, but drive two,” says pro­gram man­ager Chris­tine Wag­ner.
