Item 1. Financial Statements (Continued)

NOTE 1.  PRINCIPLES OF PRESENTATION AND CONSOLIDATION

Our financial statements are presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States for interim financial information, and instructions to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X.  We show certain of our financial statements on both a consolidated and a sector basis for our Automotive and Financial Services sectors.  All intercompany items and transactions have been eliminated in both the consolidated and sector basis financial statements.  Reconciliations of certain line items are explained below in this Note, where the presentation of these intercompany eliminations or consolidated adjustments differs between the consolidated and sector financial statements.

In the opinion of management, these unaudited financial statements reflect a fair statement of the results of operations and financial condition of Ford Motor Company and its consolidated subsidiaries and consolidated variable interest entities ("VIEs") of which we are the primary beneficiary for the periods and at the dates presented.  The operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for any other interim period or for the full year.  Reference should be made to the financial statements contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008 ("2008 Form 10-K Report").  For purposes of this report, "Ford," the "Company," "we," "our," "us" or similar references mean Ford Motor Company and our consolidated subsidiaries and our consolidated VIEs of which we are the primary beneficiary, unless the context requires otherwise.  All held-for-sale assets and liabilities are excluded from the footnotes unless otherwise noted.  See Note 12 for details of held-for-sale operations.

In the first quarter of 2009, our wholly-owned subsidiary Ford Motor Credit Company LLC ("Ford Credit") recorded a $630 million cumulative adjustment to correct for the overstatement of Financial Services sector cash and cash equivalents and certain accounts payable that originated in prior periods.  The impact on previously-issued annual and interim financial statements was not material.

Subsequent Events.  We evaluated the effects of all subsequent events from the end of the third quarter through November 6, 2009, the date we filed our financial statements with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").

Noncontrolling Interests.  We adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board's ("FASB") revised standard on accounting for noncontrolling interests on its effective date, January 1, 2009.  This standard establishes accounting and reporting requirements for the noncontrolling interest (formerly "minority interest") in a subsidiary and for the deconsolidation of a subsidiary.  The standard clarifies that a noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary is an ownership interest in the consolidated entity that should be reported as equity in the consolidated financial statements.  The presentation and disclosure requirements of this standard must be applied retrospectively for all periods.  This requirement changed the presentation of our consolidated and sector statements of operations and our consolidated and sector balance sheets.  It also required us to incorporate a consolidated statement of comprehensive income.  Footnote disclosures for our interim financial periods include separate reconciliations of our beginning-of-period to end-of-period equity/(deficit) for Ford and the noncontrolling interests.

Convertible Debt Instruments.  We adopted the FASB's standard on accounting for convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion (including partial cash settlement), on its effective date, January 1, 2009.  The standard specifies that issuers of convertible debt securities that, upon conversion, may be settled in cash should separately account for the liability and equity components in a manner that will reflect the entity's nonconvertible debt borrowing rate resulting in higher interest expense over the life of the instrument due to amortization of the discount.  This standard applies to our 4.25% Senior Convertible Notes due December 15, 2036 ("Convertible Notes") issued in December 2006.  We have applied the standard retrospectively to all periods presented.
