    One thing I know for sure: I will NEVER buy a GM again as long as I live. Why? The bailout, the deals made with UAW at taxpayer and investors' expense and the forced closures (confiscations) of dealerships that were operating at a profit...screw Government Motors!

  • df Posted: 3/2/2010 4:19pm PST

    I will not buy from a company that is bailed out either... therefore I can not buy Toyota since they received 3 billion in aid from Japan. And they are unionized in japan..

    I also agree, Toyota has managed to brain wash many Americans and Canadians by building a few vehicles here and even though the cost to build a Toyota is only 6% of the cost of a vehicle they make us believe they are American and good for us. Lies, then there is GM and Chrysler who set up the bankruptcy so they could screw the UAW and the north American taxpayer. Ford has turned their company upside down and inside out to rethink every aspect of the business and is the winner. GO FORD

    I have two Fords, a Mustang 2008, and an Explorer Sport Trac, 2001. I`ve never spent a penny on anything other than routine maintenance. Ford makes great cars, with style and class, that are extremely dependable. It`s no surprise that they are doing so well. I`m plannig to give the Sport Trac to my son in college and get a new Fusion.I wouldn`t even consider another car company.

    I guess the old addage "win on sunday...Sell on Monday" Just went out the window with Chevrolet winning ALL the races and Ford Selling all the cars...hmmmm

  • dave Posted: 3/3/2010 2:54am PST

    My heart says Ford, but with the power and money of the taxpayers behind GM, I think they will win the sales race. It is fun to see them scramble their management ranks almost at a daily rate.

  • jim Posted: 3/3/2010 4:52am PST

    The article has valid points about why Ford is doing better and GM not so much. I'm happy to see the American buyer acting on the product GM puts out. Even the much hyped new Cadillac's are faced with reliability issues. GM does not deserve the level of sales they have even now. Loyalty to GM vehicles gets you repeated visits to dealer for repairs. Your in luck if they even have the parts! "Let's roll" away from GM America.

    We have an 03 Escape,wife loves it,I had a 04 F150,best trk I ever had(had GM,Dodge,Chevy)never a lick of problem with it other than fuel mileage,which led to my buying an HHR for the 27 MPG during the gas crisis,(drive 70 per day to work),now I,m simply waiting to get another F150 and wouldn,t consider GM,Dodge or TOYTOTO(LOL),soooo,2011 I,ll have another F150.Ford was way ahead in planning,case in point "cutting back weak dealers"years ago,and Oh Yeah,NO "OBAMA MONEY",there trying to revive us the old fashion way.Thanks FORD

    Way to go Ford You know your "1 be "1. Good luck GM your only win is in nascar, but watch out Ford is coming.

  • Paul Richards Posted: 3/3/2010 6:35am PST

    There's no reason Ford can't beat GM. If not this year, then next. The recent sales surge at Ford works in their favor in another way too. These new owners will now see, feel and experience first hand the quality that is in play over at Ford rather than rely on false perceptions that have too long plagued the auto industry. Word of mouth will then play a role as happy satisfied customer tells friends and associates and begins a snowball effect. One that is richly deserved.

  • Patrick Posted: 3/3/2010 8:02am PST

    OK, I'm going to be the contrarian here...I'm thrilled to see Ford doing so well. Mullaly's done a great job with the company. As a life long Detroiter, however, I think saving GM and Chrysler was the right thing to do. I think GM will pull itself up and out of its current mess, but I'm not so sure about Chrysler. Once I get back to work, one of my first purchases will be a GM SUV...

  • Francisco salazar Posted: 3/3/2010 9:51am PST

    I think it is good for Ford to be where they are, But I would not buy one. I am a GM fan to the end. All the haters that oppose the bailout, are probably working are have a job. I am retired but I care for my fellow man , Never kick anyone when their down, might come back to haunt you.

  • Jay Posted: 3/3/2010 11:17am PST

    I'm sorry Francisco but this "can't fail" attitude has got to stop. I don't believe in kicking anyone while they are down but our debt is way too high & this madness needs to end. Hey I'm underemployed, but I blame my failures on me, nobody else should be on the hook for my screw ups, so why are the tax payers on the hook for gm and crysler? If they ran their company better they might be in Ford's shoes.

  • Bruce Posted: 3/3/2010 12:52pm PST

    I own a 1966 427 Cobra, a 2009 MKS ,a 2001 F350 crew cab, 1935 Ford Sedan Delivery. What can I say Best built cars and trucks. My boat has the only GM products I own twin 496 ho mags. Tht is because Ford pulled out of the marine business , Ford is the best build and longest runing cars and trucks........

  • Tom Mangone Posted: 3/3/2010 3:31pm PST

    I have been telling my friends for years (mostly Chevy guys) that Ford is the best domestic vehicle you can buy. Looks like I am right and they were wrong. I currently own a 08 Mustang GT/CS, 05 F250 & 03 Ranger. Never any major problem with any of them other than normal maintenance. The only hang up I have with ford is the UAW. Soon every one will see that labor unions muck up everything.

  • Steve Posted: 3/3/2010 4:36pm PST

    Having fun bashing GM? Just wait and see.

  • Damian Posted: 3/3/2010 7:59pm PST

    I do not see where GM can come out of this the government has there fingers to deep in the Company. And when was the last time you seen the government run something right?

  • Frank Posted: 3/8/2010 9:57am PST

    The first car I ever bought was a Ford Focus, it lost half its value a year later when I went to sell it, in the meantime I had spent over three grand fixing transmission problems, blown alternator, broken strut mounts and faulty fuel pumps. I don't care how "good" thier cars are now or how many they sell, they'll never get my coin ever again!
