Sorry I came on harsh. It seems as though Ford truck drivers here in MN are very errogent and for what reason I don't know. I've owned Fords and liked them too. Very reliable just not as powerful as local MNers make them out to be. My dad thought our old 89 Grand Marquis was fast. He drove it like he owned the road, its a gal darn mid 17 second car for crying out loud get over it!
Those damn plastic bumpers, with nothing inside but stryofoam. Need good Metal bumers, or something offering more protection.
Then theres the case of the basically plastic car and SUV meaning the Ion and the Vue.
But not going to rant it here.
The plastic that you are speaking of does NOT matter in the collisions we see here. All the cars in question still have structural components that are fully made using sound engineering practices that are way better than those from years past.
I wouldn't have wanted to be sitting in that back seat

Why drive around reclesly and endanger just because you are insecure about driving a slow a$$ POS. Well, I hope he learned his leason here. On the other hand I feel bad for the GXP driver that had to fall victom to the Ford driver'* small whinis.
