The agreement is based on model years and running changes. Considering that F is not anywhere close to meeting either internal or CMM forecasts, I would think that they have not exceeded the agreement.
Don't bother trying to make your point. There are some smart Ford bulls here and there people like djcdjc.
Ford is contractually required to purchase certain parts from Ford since all of the Visteon's workers are actually FORD UAW workers leased to Visteon. Ford has to keep these people employed at Visteon or take them back. It is a classic catch-22, either pay for unused labor or pay higher part prices. Also based on model changeovers, F will tied into Visteon until 2008-2009 when the 2005 vehicles are changed.
Visteon is just ad important as making good cars. Rumor mill in Detroit has an announcement coming up on Visteon. Possibly some plants being sold back to Ford and cash payments. We'll wait and see.
