Thread regarding Ford layoffs

Who here still drives a Ford?

It used to be unthinkable not to drive a Ford if you worked here and could afford it, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. The company has been treating loyal employees like cr-p, so many of the loyal employees are now opting for other cars. Or at least that's how it seems to me. Am I wrong?

All cars will track you. There is money to be earned here and it is your government that failed to protect you. Americans have been up fro scraps for a long time. It's no different with your personal data sold by the DMV's or your usage information of your mobile devices.
Europe actually started to protect its people by allowing them not just to opt-out, but they have to actively opt-in. You can wait for that for a long time... meanwhile the data the OEM's retrieve is needed to bring them closer to self-driving vehicles and adjust product development decisions.
There is also irony in this should be taking your phone with you as you drive, since they also know your location lol.

I retired from engineering last year and will never again buy a new Ford product. Why would I support a company that has screwed so many employees and customers. I know the other manufacturers are guilty of their own injustices but it didn't affect MY life or my coworkers.

I can't understand why anyone would buy a new Ford product considering all the telemetry data that is captured by the company. I know with 100% certainty that all the F150's since 2021 send all vehicle data to Ford's new data centre. There is a reason why numbskull Fairley said they want to make money on data.... your data. How you drive, where you drive and shop (GPS) and anything that the vehicle PCM/computer can track.

No Thank you!

I stopped driving a Ford when the LL6 and LL5 started treating me like cr-p. That was 2005. Bought a Subaru Forester for the wife and a Toyota Tacoma for myself. We are still driving both of the vehicles with no issues, just routine maintenance. It turned out to be a good financial decision. At present I see no reason to ever buy a Ford again.

Also, there are thousands of contract/purchased service people.

Ford didn't keep up their end of the bargain by providing me with retirement health care as they promised when I retired. So, there's no reason for me to feel compelled to buy Ford products anymore.
