Personally I thought the presentations provided a good understanding of the factors influencing Ford’s business strategy moving forward over the next 10 years or so. Whether you like Jim Hackett or not, he has a forward vision of how Ford will stay... — read more
Lincoln Navigator lost to KIA TELLURIDE. Ranger lost to Jeep Gladiator. Of course GM’s new Corvette won. Ford wins nothing..

Yet another rumor about early 2020 layoffs and buyouts........ except ....... This time it appears to be true. How about we stop slashing talent for temporary stock jumps and start building high quality high value for your $$$ vehicles.

The billions of dollars being wasted on these bad business ideas is astounding. This could be shareholder dividends or employee bonuses instead of thrown to the wind. Anybody know if these people are still employed, working to lose even more money?
Well, I guess that FoMoCo's trouble are over now, with such brilliant thinking. So revolutionary that I'm surprised Hackett didn't think of it himself!!! Surely that must be the benefit of attracting external tech (or furniture) leaders who will... — read more

So the much ballyhooed Ford GoRide patient transportation system was developed, expanded to five cities, then shut down six months later. How many $millions would you guess were wasted on this?
Getting more bad press on transmissions failing around 75k miles. Looks like too much cost cutting and/or lack of solid engineering for our SUV's. Expect greater incentives necessary to move... — read more

The latest F150 recall just reinforces how messed up the company really is.
For example, the Fusion looks pretty much the same as it did back in 2012, which was during Obama's first term in office by the way. What's going on? How can we be expected to compete with such dated looking vehicles? Thoughts?
