    I think each of the big three has their stars and their lemons so to speak. Having worked at a GM dealer for 29 years, I've seen this first hand. I don't think much has changed. If anything I give the edge to Ford, because they restructured a few years before the big collapse. We used to laugh thinking Ford was going to tank, little did we know we were the ones sunk !

    I have to go with Chrysler. Chevy (outside of Heavy Duty, Camaro & Vette) has been a big disappointment.

    Ford - The Focus and the Taurus..... nuff said

    I say Chrysler or import ...

    I could not even tell you anymore?
    I have to agree with John, each has good and bad.
    I think it has to be more of a judge each vehicle than the manufacturer.

    Being a dyed in the wool Chevy fan my whole life, it is hard to say if I was to pick a company to "Support" right now, it would be Ford for purely ethical reasons.

    But I don't buy new vehicles anyway, lol!

    My knee jerk reaction would be Chrysler seeing as they do have some excellent looking vehicles and more bang for the buck.
    On second thought, Ford has the edge (no pun intended) in regards to looks, engineering, vehicle line-up not to mention they didn't take any Gov't money. That's a plus in my eyes.

    GM has gone downhill since 2007. Yes, the Camaro and the whole Cadillac line-up has given a shot in the arm of GM. GMC is still "looking" strong. This is a hard decision because I've been a GM guy all my life with a lot of MOPAR thrown in the last 10 years.

    I think Ford should take the honors.

    I agree with most everything that's been posted.

    GM has the Corvette & Camaro, Cadillac CTS-V, and the trucks

    Chrysler has the Hemi and some great looking cars to put them in.

    Ford has the Mustang, didn't take any .gov money, and is doing fine.

    If I was to buy a new car today, it would be a Ford for reason stated above.
