That's good to hear. GM was up 14% as well, maybe a kick in the pants was what this country really needs after all. Chrysler's down, but does that shock anyone? lol.

Yep, they don't have any new products they can offer yet so all they can do is refresh the same old designs and stay afloat with government loans until they can get some new models in the showroom.

Yeah, but it's like this. There are three stands on the sidewalk.

One is selling Grade AA hamburgers. Another beside it is selling Grade A for a little bit of a lower price. A third is selling hamburgers for half the price of the first, but you have no idea what meat it is.

That last one is Chrysler. What's the point of a discount is you're buying crap?

One must be dreaming if you really think Ford has any chance on taking market share from Toyota.

Any short term sales spike will be short lived.

After decades of poorly made cars, its going to take more then a recall for Ford to over take Toyota. Toyota's reputation for value, practicality, long-term reliability and exceptional comfort isn't something someone will just oversee.

Well what if you did like them? I know of some people that do. What if it was all you could afford new. (aiming for warranty)
