So we were actually getting a warm and fuzzy feeling in our gut over the straight talk coming live and correct from the folks at FoMoCo. When the automaker released July sales numbers today, they threw down a graphic we thought represented an honest look at what the numbers said..."car sales down, truck sales down." Apparently someone in Dearborn felt they were keeping things a little too real, 'cause they've gone and removed that graphic and replaced it with one more indicative of PR flak-speak. The new one, as you can see above...tries to put the warm and fuzzy feeling back on the numbers by claiming as the big news the increase in Fusion, Milan and Zephyr sales, but after seeing the last just makes us feel kinda used and violated.
