Quotes Honda is a demanding customer, but it is loyal to us. American automakers have us work on drawings, ask other suppliers to bid on them, and give the job to the lowest bidder. Honda never does that. – CEO, Industrial fasteners supplier to Ford, GM, Chrysler, and Honda, April 2002 In my opinion, Ford seems to send its people to hate school so that they learn how to hate suppliers. The company is extremely confrontational. After dealing with Ford, I decided no to buy its cars. - Senior Executive, Supplier to Ford, October 2002
