Report: Ford to cut Lincoln dealerships
October 7, 2010—Ford plans to cut about 175 Lincoln dealerships in its top 130 metro areas.
This 35 percent cut is occurring where dealers are unneeded, according to The Detroit News. The dealers were informed of the cut at the meeting of dealers in Dearborn, Mich., on Tuesday.
“We are not successful the way we are doing it,” said Bob Tasca, a Rhode Island dealer and chairman of the Lincoln Mercury Dealer Council. “There are too many dealers and a lot of them are not located properly. Some will make it and some will not.”
