    Ford should not cancel its sedans, especially the Fusion, which is the best seller of the group. Without them, the U.S. market for sedans will fall completely to the imports which mostly are cheaper but at a much lesser quality. Then what will stop the imports from doing the same for the CUVs and SUVs? Of course, they are also killing Ford sales in that market!

    So, what is left for Ford if the two biggest markets are surrendered to the foreigners?

      I agree with you Raymond. Ford’s brain trust IQ is definitely down. Someday they will be the poor partner with VW. That will doubly insure that I will not buy another Ford.

    Wonder why sales are dropping like a stone? A car company that isn’t going to build cars? Hmmm, maybe.
