Re: Interesting Read

That wouldn't work, they'd still call us Fords because of the component parts shared between Ford and Mazda. I say, who gives a fuck about what someone else says or thinks, I love my car no matter who makes it.

ohh but it would. right after we call those people's lancers jeep patrios, compass'es and calibers.


haha.


people call us fords because ford is the larger company. doesnt matter if we share parts, all companies share parts. but the point is... the toyota matrix and pontiac vibe are the same car. you dont see people calling toyotas pontiacs?


my point exactly. the "company developing" the car usually takes the name. with people reading this, they will most likely shut up and change their minds about mazda as a "shitty ford company"

Lol, wtf. Did you miss one of the first sentences that said, "Ford saved Mazda 12 years ago from near bankruptcy."

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.

umm everyone knows that. and dude. 12 years ago. get over it.

im just saying in relation to how shitty fords quality is here in the U.S (my dad had a fiesta in brazil for a good 10 years that he only drove about once a year when we traveled there for vacation. that car was more reliable than a civic. on the other hand, i had a brand new focus here. broke down all the time.)

people tend to think ford sucks because ford NA sucks. so when people hear mazda. they shy away thinking that its "NA ford quality" when in reality. mazdas are extremely reliable. as well as fords IN OTHER COUNTRIES.


im simply stating that this is THE BEST DEFENSE EVER, for those ignorant, misinformed individuals who say "ford owns mazda"

no douchebag. ford owns 30% of mazdas shares, and mazda actually develops alot of fords cars both in the past, and now even moreso in the near future.

btw. yea my mazdas a ford. but its also an aston martin, a volvo, and a range rover.

Actually Ford sold Aston Martin, so you can't use that one now

Re: Interesting Read

Most people I've talked to don't even know that Mazda is partially owned by Ford...

**not on this forum and not unless its in a for sale thread.
