Reuters story

All Ford's call centers are located there. I'm sure we're not alone.

All of Ford's call centers are not located in India, unless something just changed over the past few months.

TAC Automotive staffs Ford's dealership tech help in Dearborn.

No, they're still there, but I don't think he meant THAT call center.

Technically thats owned and operated by the dealer association and not Ford the company. Sorry, its a subtlety that often slips my mind when folks view "Ford". The average consumer does not understand the separation that exists between a company and its dealer network.

No. Ford pays TAC on the contract. They are not "owned" by the dealer network. TAC staffs the call center as part of Ford's Service Engineering Operations.
