>owned a '06 mazda 6
>mfw trying to fix literally anything
Is really just Mazda tech
Isn't a real thing
Just a popular song with a car doing nothing
It's pathetic. Everything ford has is the product of another companies hard work.
ITT: People talk about manufacturers that they think are the worst only for someone to mention a manufacturer that they like and go in damage control mode.
>hurr the entire brand of "x" is shit
>not all cars from "x" are shit
Case in point.
I expected this to be the first post, what's wrong with you /o/?
You see, the kids, they listen to the rap music, which gives them the brain damage
>Aston martin gave their main design cue to ford
>ford sales skyrocket because retarded consumers think it looks like an aston
yeah.. no... aston martin totally took advantage of ford huh.....
>Implying that Jaguar saved Ford
That's adorable. Read up on Lucas electronics, British Leyland, and Smith instruments and understand why your statement is utterly retarded. Then look at the fact that Mazda was circling the drain when Ford made their move (It's almost like heavily investing in rotary engines was a bad idea.).
My parents own a 2013 Durango and its crap and already has a lot of problems at 44k. My freind also has a 2015 Chrysler 200 s 2.4 rental becuase he totaled his car and the transmission is going out on it already
From a BBC report
>But Jaguar in particular has never prospered under Ford's ownership and the world's third largest motor manufacturer last night told MPs that both it and Land Rover are to be sold.
I'm sure ford had something to gain from the purchase and sale. Just like they do from everyone they partner with
Cool story, bro. That doesn't change the fact that both companies were in dire straits before they were acquired. Nor does that change the fact that without the intervention of Ford (particularly, their infrastructure and business acumen), Jaguar would have joined Wolseley, Austin, Morris, Triumph, et al on the long list of dead British car makers. As for Mazda? When Ford acquired their stake in 1979, they were fucked. They had banked heavily on rotary engines, which, as it turns out, were neither fuel efficient nor particularly reliable in what was a pretty serious energy crisis. Yes, Ford is a terrible company that builds crap, but you're deluding yourself if you think Mazda and Jaguar saved them. It doesn't work that way. Ford rebounded from the Edsel. They rebounded from the Pinto. Do you think that Mazda or Jaguar could have weathered that kind of shitstorm, ever?
Just gon slide dis right own in there wit ya
Yes ford was doing so well that they had to use Mazda engines and chassis.
Literally everything ford has today is from its partnerships with other companies.
>engines from mazda
>chassis from volvo
>styling from aston martin
>Jaguar's decline tale of a tarnished brand
>But the Big Cat’s image has seriously eroded in recent years under the ownership of Ford, despite a revival in its flagging quality.
Not the people you are arguing with but.
>Pic is ecoboost engines
Most or all of these are derived from or are mazda engines correct?
also could you say the Ford GT 3.5-L ecoboost engine is also mazda or a heavily modified mazda engine?
Dude, the damage control is getting pathetic. I get it, you're a member of generation Z, and being wrong triggers you, but you need to man up and accept that you don't know what the fuck you're talking about. A partnership means that information and technology flows both ways. Seeing that aston-martins and Jags, became relatively reliable cars, I would say that they benefited, as did Mazda.
Nope, your interpretation of it is wrong, retard. Take another adderall and see if you can't muster up a triple digit IQ, senpai. Once more: "Not prospering" is not the same as "going the fuck under." Jag and Aston benefited from the acquisition, they were able to stay alive and their build quality increased immensely.
Do you have a reading comprehension problem?
FORD FUCKED JAG OVER
its all very easy to google
facts from credible sources on ALL OF IT
They NEVER TURNED A PROFIT UNDER FORD. Wasnt untill tata picked them up did they start to do well
Same with VOLVO. Ford ruined them for years. Now they are owned by the chinese just to survive after the mess ford made of them
Holy shit do you people not know how to use google or read?
Are you in that much of denial?
So much shilling for Fixed Or Repaired Daily
>FORD FUCKED JAG OVER
>The explosive growth under Ford's stewardship hasn't been entirely smooth for Jaguar, which lost $500 million in 2002 while trying to get the aluminum process right. An all-new _F-type sports car, conceived during Reitzle's tenure, was canceled. And Jaguar failed to spot the European trend toward diesel-powered cars that was sweeping Europe, losing sales to rivals such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz as a result.
>But Jaguar has been completely transformed by Ford ownership
>In the end, the two companies have been right for each other. Ford had the foresight to let Jaguar be Jaguar, only a lot more so.
>insert head in sand and scream loudly
That's what you're doing
>There can be no doubt that Dearborn saved Jaguar
ffs this thread is full of shit
>implying ford needs volvo chassis
>implying getting idle mazda engineers to design engines is a bad thing
if i spent the amount of money ford did on mazda and pag i'd want something back too
ford did a damn sight better for it's partners than many other companies did or would do.
>thinking small blocks chevys or LS engines are actually good
It's like saying iPhone are good quality or technologically advanced just because they're popular or have an oversatured aftermarket
