Just goes to show that Ford can make a dollar on their cars and not have to rely on communications offshoots to make their brass. Must admit, they need to pump some $$$ back into quality in the states by the sound of it.. :eek:
Thank god our cars are built in OZ.. :D

Which begs the question..

Would you still by a Ford family sedan/wagon if it was built in the states and imported here?

Answer for me is no. Depends on it's quality and driveability of course, but I'd prefer my car to be made in Oz by Oz folks. Simple as that...

The profit margin can be explained by the huge mark up on the SUV market which Ford lead by a big margin
