My credo
Give me money.
I think it's just gotten to the point where car designers have ran out of ways to be unique... I can't pick out a Chevy, ford, toyota, Kia etc from the body shape anymore. I use to be able to name the make, model and year or a car or truck coming up behind me just by the headlight pattern.

There's at least 3 other cars that look identical to my stupid fiesta, and basically every SUV made is the same shape as my mkx.

i only notice the ford stuff, because thats all a really care about. i know the Kia Sedona minivan is ford based as well. Im sure Chevy is guilty too, with other companies that they have dealing with. it makes sense to me, as to why they would dump ALL cars, except Mustang, if they're making money from Hyundai/Kia cars.
Its not a conspiracy theory or anything just the "ol' switch-a-roo"

lol

What are you talking about? Was something about that supposed to verify your claim of the Sedona being ford based??

here we go

2 minutes on Google proves that there is something to what I'm saying. im not trying to prove anything to YOU at all. you have a habit of doubting everything i say for some reason.

You posted :
1) A link to a fourteen year old discussion on a Ford truck forum that makes no such claim.
2) A screenshot of a Google search mentioning that ford had some involvement in the company nearly thirty years ago.
3) A discussion of kia involvement in India that mentions Ford wanting to be more involved in 1997 but being outbid by Hyundai (who as far as I know currently owns Kia).
None of the things you posted has one shred of association with what you claimed to know.

Looks like some OEMs follow rather outdated guidelines for usb charging:
