    What is your favorite Car Company?

    With the bailouts in high gear, it si a good time to weigh in on your favorite car company whether you own one or not. Then you can explain why if you want.

    Where's the option for "Who gives a crap?"

    As long as it runs well and doesn't look like crap, I don't really care.

    Re: What is your favorite Car Company?

    Ford is really trying to build more small cars and be innovative when compared to the other two American companies. They also stashed cash for a year although that may not do them any good if their suppliers falter.

    That's a Toyota, in case you didn't know. I've heard good things about the Scion line.

    Re: What is your favorite Car Company?

    I don't really have a "favorite". I've owned GM, Chrysler, Ford and Saab. I dislike them all equally for different reasons, though the saab has been the least amount of trouble.

    Had the most trouble with the GM, but it made it to 200k before anything too major kicked it in the butt (aside from paint problems).

    I view pretty much every GM vehicle with suspicion.
    I applaud Ford more than most for at least trying, even though I wish they would jsut bring their freaking Euro cars over as opposed to continuing to spew out the USDM stuff.

    I don't really have a favorite, but all of my cars have been GM's, so it won my vote by default.

    Isn't Saab GM? (maybe they sold them off recently, but they were for some time)

    My vote is BMW. If you've ever driven one, you'd know why. They aren't called the ultimate driving machine for nothing.

    4 year 50000 all inclusive warranty sure doesn't hurt either. BMW builds a lot in South Carolina.

    Technically Saab is owned by GM (though they want to ditch them). They were all Saab designed and engineered before the "NG" saabs (the 94 and later 900 and the 9-3 and 9-5 lines) came around. the drivetrain is/was all saab, though, and most of them (aside from the badge engineered 9-2x) were built in Sweeden (where they also make the Cadilac BLS).

    You'd be hard-pressed to find anything that's GM on the car, though, aside from a logo or two here or there.
