I'm a bit upset

Would someone please tell me why we have people on this forum who constantly like to diss Ford? Meaning... calling them pieces of shit & things like that? It's one thing to not like fords (such as, the way they look) but it's another thing to call them junk or say they break down alot. Am I the only one that knows MAZDA IS OWNED BY FORD???????????? :x

Re: I'm a bit upset

Although Ford owns 1/3 of Mazda(not the whole thing) they have a reputation of making very unreliable cars. *the 80s and 90s they made some horrid cars and the mustang pre-this year has been a total pos.

The thing about Mazda3 is they are made in Japan where we know they make very good cars. *Ford has, I agree, turned it around this year, as the Focus has been made well and so has the mustang. *The F150 trucks have always been decent but there are still better trucks out there even by GM(sierra turbo deisel anyone).

Ford = sux big time for so long that so many people hate them. *They have turned it around this year imo though.
Mazda3 = partially built by ford with some ford parts but mostly Japanese.

Re: I'm a bit upset

Maybe I get offended when someone says it. Why? Because I know a ton of people that have driven nothing but Fords, and have had no trouble. Of coarse there's regular maintenance things. But that's with any car. My ex fiance has almost 300k on his 91 Mustang. Original engine & transmission. In the past 8 years I've known him, his car has only broken down once, and that was b/c of the clutch. I think it's all in the way you take care of a car.

It's kinda like when people say they'd never own a foreign car. Don't these people realize that some of the parts under their hood ARE MAD IN ANOTHER COUNTRY!??? I've never been they type to call a particular car a pos. If you take care of a car, it'll last, right???

Re: I'm a bit upset

heres another good example of how things can turn around for a company.

Mitsubishi used to make engines for Chrysler(think they still might on some cars). *They used to make the 2.2L engine for the K car, the omni and horizon. *There was an optional 1.8L that was made by Chrysler. *The 2.2L engine was fabulous, it lasted forever, and performance was great. This was between 83-87. * Now mitsubishi cars between 95-2002 sucked, the engines were lousy, the cars were made of plastic, they just generally sucked.(yes we all like the eclipse, and the lancer, and hey even the 3000GT) but if you actually looked at the reliablility of them, they blew. *They have made some improvments but still are far from Toyota/Honda standards.

Ford made good cars in the 40s and 50s, then sucked in the 60s cept for the late mustangs. *70s were bad for most makers, but the 80-90s saw them go real bad. *You can't just wipe away that many years of them sucking in just a few years.

I will agree that the 88-92 mustangs were built right.
