Uh oh, let the flames begin!

We won't be seeing Ford's unified design until another 6 years. At least according to LLN. What's worse? They'll be ditching their European kinetic design too. I guess in all fairness there could be something better than the kinetic design theme that we haven't imagined yet. BUT this could also turn out to be a complete disaster, where we could be seeing more of the ugly stuff spread to a global scale. You think Ford's going to be around for another six years at this rate? Discuss!

I have confidence in them. They now have good management in Mullaly and they still have some of the greatest design talent in the world, such as J Mays. However, only time will tell and I guess we have to just cross our fingers.

I want to know what they have planned for the Wayne assym. plant in 2011. They have a new car slatted for then. built in 2010 as a 2011MY. I too have confidence in ford. They seem to be the only company that is making large changes in their designs and what not.

Six years ain't going to make it in my book, at least for a Focus. I really want to see the Fiesta, but from what I've seen so far for that (starting with "made in China") that may not make it either. I can't say I have any interest in the '08 version of the Focus. If they're going to build that for another six years they're going to force me to go elsewhere for my next car....

I think Ford will continue to exist for some time and I like most of the vehicles they're coming out with... except for the focus. Unfortunately none of their other designs will be within my financial grasp for some time and by then who knows what they'll have.

So I think I might go used Honda for my next car (3 or more years away). Sorry Guys.

I feel the same way. But on the plus side I guess the Focus we own now will be considered a classic car in the future... at least to enthusiasts like us. We'll have many stories to share about owning one of the most unique cars on the road. Not that I'm saying they're magical or anything, but there's no denying that these types of cars are rarely seen on American soil. Very few people appreciate its uniqueness in that respect.
