If the car sales market is still growing in the U.S., no one could tell from Ford’s (NYSE: F) October sales. The one of The Big Three which did not take a government supported Chapter 11 bailout was the darling of the industry for the two years after. Now, Ford has lost its momentum
Sales of all Ford cars and light trucks rose only .2% in October to 168,456. Ford has enough trouble in Europe, along with almost every other manufacturer, to stumble at home.
Sales of the flagship Ford brand rose only 1%. Fusion sales fell 18,094
