The North American Office of Ford's Safety Division posted a 10-percent drop in sales over the same period last year, in pouring salt into what's turned into a crappy month for the Blue Oval. Although it only amounts to 939 lost sales, the negative PR from one more of the company's units posting a downturn can't be good news to the kids in Dearborn. Here's to hoping that the C30 is the hit that Volvo thinks it will be.
