Jacques Nassar

Anyone else think that Nassar was fired due to Ford Family politics? (ie: the board people just ultimately wanted a Ford running the company again) after all most of the quality issues noted started waaaaay before Nassar got there (the Firestone issue for example)

Nasser did one thing right. Gave the go ahead for the new T-Bird. Of course it's almost $20,000 more than what it was. From what I've read it wasn't only the Firestone issue that did him in. He also used up 2/3's of Fords 9 billion dollar nest egg to make new model cars better.:crazy1: Also the rating system he started for his mnangers was way off, to say the least. I've read in here that the guy's and gal's Downunder loved him. Wish most of us in the states felt the same way. While Nasser was CEO Ford stoped making these fwd cars the Probe, Contour and soon the Cougar. So, If I want a fwd Ford I have to buy a Focus or Taurus. Not much of a choice is it. As far as rwd we have a new T-Bird but one has to be wealthy to afford that one, and the Escape. Oooooo another SUV, like the world doesn't have enough of those already. :s6:

As far as Australia goes he did a couple more things right.

I also support the car companies in the PAG. I like the concept/idea.

I reckon he was.
Stacy94PGT: What do you think about the Falcon beeing exported to the states? I reckon it would be a good idea, and I don't see what car it would be interfering with. Crown Victoria? Its a leaf sprung POS.

It would be a great idea.
