Behind Ford's scary $12.7 billion loss
Hate to be the one to post this news, but it seems to me that domestics are really losing out on the competition and are now pathetically looking for a scapegoat.
I have always rooted for the home team, as you might say, and it was plain depressing to read about the team you're rooting for face a stiff competition and would not take the ball anymore. I quote:
"...For all the bad decisions these companies have made by not listening to their customers, they aren't entirely to blame. Structural inequities between the U.S. and Japan - notably in labor costs and currency - account for a big chunk of Detroit's problems."
On a personal note, I just had my car problem fixed. Green as I am when it comes to car maintenance, it was just last week that I learned it is not cooling a car needs from a radiator.
My car takes to stalling. Turned out because it was running on a "generous amount of coolant," as the mechanic put it. Embarrassing, I know.
