That doesnt mean there isnt issues with some cars/engines that are eating into their profits heavily...
Im pretty sure there are even happy customers of TalkTalk broadband, that doesnt change the fact the service is running at a loss thanks to mass problems as well as fines from the regulators because of their service levels being shite.
Something is wrong with Ford right now, they are hemoraging money left right and centre, and whatever it is, will, sooner or later (whenever the US government chooses to stop bailing them out), crucify them.
They are already selling off Land Rover and Jaguar in a desperate bid to get some cash... other manufacturers like Nissan, Renault, Toyota, Honda etc, are all financially very healthy and secure, so why are Ford feeling the strain, it cant be solely blamed on the world economy, their obviously doing something wrong.
Niche models never make money, 90% of them lose money due to developmental costs, hence my rekoning they should stop churning out more and more niche market products and concentrate on generating enough revenue from their core market to be profitable.
