Ford's new Focus NERAD: BACK SEAT DRIVING A month in which Ford Motor Company outsells General Motors Corporation is a very rare month indeed, at least in the last 80 years. And a month in which it occurs when GM is not in the throes of a strike is even more rare. The February results demonstrate that not only are the recent Ford product offerings being well-received, but also that GM is still suffering from post-bankruptcy syndrome. A percentage of the American buying public has been turned off by GM’s bailout, plus GM is now operating with fewer brands and fewer dealers than it did one year before, which is not going to help short-run sales comparisons. The fact that Ford is a major beneficiary of Toyota’s safety recall troubles is another factor in this complex mix. Jack R. Nerad, Executive Market Analyst Kelley Blue Book and kbb.com
