To be fair it never should of been announced that they were being it back, would of stopped at this crap rumors that are out and would of shocked everyoneMy take is a bit different.
A. Ford controls this forum and also their dealer network. Ford controls communications; they probably have hundreds of staff with that word on their business card.
B. Corporate secrecy is normal and necessary. But there is a big difference between secrecy, misinformation, disinformation, and communications incompetence.
C. I'd personally give Ford poor marks for managing the past 6 months. I sure hope their product is superior to their run-up.
