Dont' want to be the barer of bad news and I'm very supportive of the D3 platform, BUT....

 

IN comparison, 10 years ago... D186 platform.

Taurus 353,560

Sable 102,646

Continental 20,392

Windstar 179,595

 

Total= 656,193

 

Subtract the 60% going to rental fleets. :redcard:

Ranger out sells Taurus, Mustang, Fiesta, and Flex YTD. :stirpot: And now, its gone forever.

 

Madness indeeeed, but know where you are coming from

 

 

 

Mundane Mondeo's are still allowed to exist in Fords of Europe's line-up with 2,500 European sales last month, when our good ole RWD Cortina use to sell 33,000-55,000 just in the UK only, in a good month. It to broke and still holds the British car sales record for the most car sales in one year 1979 when it averaged 16,500 UK sales per month as it faced the axe by Ford.

 

Mondeo 2,500 November European sales is very worrying, as this will probably be Ford World Car just like the Escape 23,000 sales now becomes a European Kuga with 4,500 sale. By fitting power plants that are haft the cubic capacity and cutting down weight are the real good things about the new Escape it would have improved MPG massive way in a old escape as well, Ford though will put down excellent MPG its boring dull bland bullshitting aerodynamics, you might as well put big 50's wings on it just to add to the bull. Meantime in the future SUV Skoda's new boxy shaped Yeti that is more practical with more headroom and legroom in the rear seats will give first class travel and comfort, the boxy Yeti averages 61.5 MPG outguns the super slick aerodynamic Kuga's averages 47 MPG.

 

Come 2014 won't we looking the new US Escape, Vertrack Kuga with sales of 3,000 and wondering just how Ford managed to shift 23,000 US sales every month of the old boxy (so called outdated) Escape that everybody brought and liked in big number.

Madness

 

Madness -- doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Sound familiar, FJ?

Agree Nick 2,500 European Mundane Mondeo sales last month is not working for Ford, axe it.

 

Ford used to be number 1 best selling car in Europe with the RWD Taunus/Cortina, today Ford are number "nowhere" with the anonymous nonentity Mondeo.

 

Indeed even the RWD BMW 3 Series BMW 5 Series & Mercedes C class quality low volume quality car producers all have double the sales YTD of the mass produced Mondeo, when RWD is on offer choice and given today in Europe.

 

Let have at least one quality prestigious RWD car from Ford in Europe on offer to buy.

-179,595 because the Windstar in 2001 was on the V platform. The Windstar was switched to the V platform in 1999. All the same the D186 had impressive sales volume.

Course that volume was running through three different plants (Chicago, Atlanta and Wixom), which tends to diminish the value of that volume.

And my answer to you is that none of those vehicles survived the purge of 2006.

What does that tell you about the profitability of Atlanta making 200,000 /year right up to closure?

How did the Mazda 3 just become the Aussie best selling car down under for 2011 JDP, do they assemble them in Australia just interested.

 

Good to see the RWD Falcon was still Fords best selling car down under in 2011 JPD, and well done to the Ranger (No 15), Territory (No16), Focus (No 19) and the Fiesta (No21) best seller down under in 2011 (What no Mundane, what happened to the wonderful Mundane Mondeo JPD another nowhere result?)

Mazda 3 is well liked in Australia but the 3 is by far their best seller...

 

New Falcon and Territory diesel are commanding full retail with no discounts in site, recess at Broadmeadows started on the 16th

and Ford basically sold out of all stock before Christmas, there's hardly any 2011 plated Falcons and Territory around.

More "Falcon is dying" stories by the press because they didn't get the right answers from Ford brass......

 

Holden on the other hand are over producing Commodore and Cruze and selling both with huge discounts just to get sales glory...

I bet Holden must be livid and pissed of that Mazda have just outsold the Commodore knocking them off the top spot in 2011, is the Mazda 3 made in Australia JPD?

 

2012 looks like another shit year in Europe JPD we getting new huge EU carbon taxes coming to help bailout the gangster banksters and southern Europe countries oops sorry l mean't another Global Warming stealth tax to save Al Gore and his polar bears. A friend who regularly take a winter break down under was complaining saying his trip has already been hit with a £1200 Air Passenger Duty for his family now with a £120 EU Carbon Tax as well means now he will be hit with £1,320 in taxes and thats just before you start paying for your ticket. Still no news on what they are gonna do with the Carbon Tax on cars yet. Brits are really cutting back on car use, we used 14 billion lites less fuel in 2011 than we used in 2010.

Happy New Year JPD, Chevy are offering huge great discounts in the UK as well, but nobody seem to want to buy their Korean made junk here 900 Chevy sales month last ha ha. Lets hope this year things improve can't see it myself in the UK we live & work to pay tax, but those sales numbers of pick-ups Stateside this month are absolutely amazing.
