It's hard to be a global automaker. In recent times, Ford (NYSE:F) has seen its U.S. factories pushed to their limits -- even as several of its European factories aren't busy enough to make money.

In this video, Fool.com contributor John Rosevear talks about Ford's latest moves to close two factories in Britain, and at the status of Ford's unfolding plan to turn around its troubled European unit.
