malaysians aren't even taking in the focus. this should be causing
autoconnexion sleepless nights. don't think they'll be adventurous
enought to bring in the mondeo seeing the dismal response to the focus.

the new focus sold now has no improvements over the previous 05 model,
except for some minor cosmetic uplift.

To pay RM120K is simply a no-brainer.....might as well pay a bit more to
get a Civic 2.0.

If at RM99K, there is a chance of a better following!

Ford To Assemble Mondeo In Vietnam
HANOI, March 18 (Bernama) -- Ford Vietnam has invested US$10 million in a new production line to assemble its Mondeo model in Vietnam.

According to the Vietnam news agency (VNA), the plant using a robotic system that uses plasma welding technology, will be able to produce 32 cars per day, or 700 cars a month.

When compared with Mercedes Benz or Toyota models, the Mondeo has the potential to become extremely competitive.

"That's why Ford decided to invested in this new assembly line in Vietnam,� said the company's General Director Michael Pease.

He added that the Mondeo is very popular with consumers and local car dealers as it can compete price wise with other more expensive models on the market, especially during the current economic slowdown.

He stated a year ago that if this car could prove to be competitive in Vietnam, his company would assemble it in the country instead of importing from overseas.

I guess our new Mondeo will be coming from Vietnam. Why don't you test the market first? Bring in those awesome mondeo from europe. Hehehe... 2.5T please.
