The management team should learned to think smarter, earlier rather seeing company about to go bankrupt then making change. Hope this lesson would make them smarter next time.

Anyone take a gander at the 2009 Focus? (http://www.thetorquereport.com/2009_foc us_coupe.jpg) Seems the real “focus” was on ugly. If Ford had the courage to release in America those designs reserved for Europe, perhaps they would manage to sell some vehicles. Vanity, after all, is more than a 6 disk CD changer.
