So I've seen comment after comment indicate Fields cancelled this and that.....but I really never saw anything in Automotive News or WSJ and I'm wondering where you guys are getting this info? Every downturn is being blamed on Fields and I'm not sure I entirely buy into this.
The guy was no idiot and knows that fresh product sells better with less incentives so how did they get to where they are now?
With China being starved for products and the lack of investment in this market and others for new products is just crazy. And when they do roll something out, it is so damn hard to see any noticeable differences.
My issue is more around the fact that the board, including Bill Ford, would certainly be aware of all these decisions and maybe even sign off on some of this stuff.
I'm a Ford guy thru and thru but keep my eyes pretty wide open but this makes me ask....WTF happened?
