Why Does International Worship FORD vs USA Market Rejects it?

    I've noticed that internationally, people around the world worship Ford (Car Company) and think everything from Ford is best. But yet in USA Market they keep having issues.

    I was talking to my home country the other day. One of the young boys got the phone and was asking uncle(me) what I drive. As I opened up my mouth, he said is it a ford? He didn't even let me tell him what I drive and he was worshiping ford like there is no tomorrow.

    Also lots of attention on Top Gear, fifth gear and everywhere I look BBC and so, I see fords everywhere. Mostly in different forms of Vans and smaller cars or even mini wagons. Cars that we havn't even seen here and wouldn't imagine seeing Ford built.

    So the question is, has Ford given up on USA market knowing the competition for being the best of the best. And seeing how people around the world are obsessed with anything USA does have focused on taking their sales there and exploding them. Orrrr something that doesn't hit my mind.

    Cheers

    That's because European Fords are very different from American Fords.

    American fords have been shitty in the past killing their rep. Now they have some excellent, well priced models, but it will take a while to gain any more market share back. They will be down before they are back up.

    We still have shitty fords but most of the new vehicles are very good.

    Ford KA:

    These things are small, cheap, good on gas and lovable. I would rock one. I drove one when I was in Argentina last summer, they are fun.

    People worshipping Ford in your home country? It's gotta be somewhere in the Mid East then.
