OK Mr Ford dealer, go out on your lot and look at the drivers door jambs and tell us how many of your Fords (and you've got PLENTY to look at, don't you?), were built in Mexico? Idiot.

Why don't you take your frustrations out on the Ford CEO instead, Mr. Ford Dealer. You should have seen this happening a very long time ago. Say 5 years ago.

This guy is a complete idiot. Maybe he doesn't realize that most of the Big 3 GM, Ford, and Chrysler, build their cars in Mexico. And that Toyota builds most of their cars in America. I can understand being mad because of the way the economy is. But don't take out your anger with Racist remarks that don't tell the truth. And i live in Savannah and have seen the ads, i will never buy a car from him ever.

Get a grip! There are millions of Fords still on the road today. That's because they didn't make it home.

This guy probably just sealed his fate. Many consumers will refuse to buy from him now. On top of that, Ford will need to close a large number of dealerships as part of their required restructuring. There are several Ford dealers in the Savannah area, so I'm guessing his dealership just went to the top of the hit list. Ford will not want to be associated with such racist publicity.

What kind of marketing stragety is this dealer trying to use? I've never owned a foreign car. The most wonderful vehicles I've ever owned were a 79 F-150 and an 86 Chevy Caprice. Both were simple to maintain, good on gas and great to drive. I have a 97 Explorer now and have had close to 200,000 miles of safe and comfortable motoring. This kind of advertising has me thinking twice about purchasing another Ford. Hopefully, his dealership will be pulled and he'll find himself selling scooters. If not, I'll be back on a Chevy lot for my next vehicle (if I ever get tired of this one).
