AP Sources: Parts problem hurts Ford Focus sales
AP Sources: Equipment problem at parts factory causes shortage of Ford's hot-selling Focus
By The Associated Press

DETROIT (AP) ' Two people familiar with the matter say Ford Motor Co. can't build as many hot-selling Focus cars as it wants because of equipment problems at a parts factory.

The people say machinery that makes a key dashboard part doesn't work all the time and has slowed production at the Focus factory near Detroit. The company has taken the unusual step of flying in parts from Europe. But the people say Ford is still running short on dashboards.

The problem has forced dealers to put customers on waiting lists. The redesigned Focus was Ford's top-selling U.S. passenger car last month.



The people didn't want to be identified because they aren't authorized to speak about the matter. A Ford spokesman would not comment.
