And this is where they go a rye. They see a market and milk it. All auto makers expect to much for their products. Ten years ago a full size Bronco/Blazer/Ram charger was 27,000, now there are minivans going for 37,000. A focus/cobalt/Neon is no more than a 10,000 car to me. Wages havent increased, in most imploys there have been concessions or cut backs. Their pricing themselves off of the market. No wounder They need a globel market, there's not enough people in this country that can afford the commitment. I just know what I'm whilling to pay!!

Actually this is a very good price when compared to what others charge for a similar car (but lacking awd) like the accord. And from what I hear they lost 2000 per car this past year

Yes Ford's price is better when compared to it's compition but,Compare new car pricing to the average income, not what other manufacturers are charging. I doesn't look so attractive now does it? Explain to the average working American that works for $7.00 to $10.00 why they can't afford a car along their other bills, when in the 40's through the 80's they could! Living expenses have increased and wages have not. If you look there is a large % of new car buyers in this country that never left home. I'm mean they live with their parents, or split rent with a room mate! When the cost of living was lower this was not the case!
