I think that kinda sums it all up really.
i know this was post way way way back on like the second page and maybe it has allready been coverd BUT you are wrong, the biggest company in the world is WAL-MART, then EXXON MOBIL then GM. and FORD is 5th. (and if you don't belive me http://www.fortune.com/fortune/global500)SO WHAT, that just means that GM sold a few cars than Ford. i vote FORD!

Isn't that odd? My friends all have Chevys and they are forever having to replace things... Hmm... They think Chevy is so great, but why are they always having to work on them, when I never work on my Fords???

Your ford is a 99, how old are the chevy's? Probably like 70's, let's compare apples to apples please. I'm not saying that chevy is better, because we all know Mopar is best!

I'm a Dodge guy myself, but between the two, I give the advantage to Ford. They seem to be better-built, and 1996-2000 Taurus aside, they have more attractive styling.

This is so obvious. Ford makes better products than Chevrolet, you Chevy guys should accept it. For example compare the classic Cavalier to the Focus, Escape vs. Tracker? hehe, Ford wins in almost every category, specially sedans, minis and SUVS. Chevy practically only has the Corvette to stand up for, and Iīm positive it will find its way to death when the Ford GT40 makes its debut soon, as the sweet next Mustang too!.

Chevy makes decent trucks (except for the ugly Avalanche), but their cars drive me mild. Their styling is too weird. Ford not only has nice trucks, but the Focus looks good, and even the Taurus looks somewhat decent.

I still like Dodge, though.

FALSE Ford sells more then GM

Ok. First post I have is for FORD Company(Not just Ford itself) vs. GM(In my opinon you can't do this but I am showing you guys what it means) If they asked me which place I selected USA so this is not completly for 100% accurate, but it is around 95%.

GM=16 Different Auto Companies(Gm does not publicly announce their dealer rates)
Buick-
Cadillac-
Chevrolet-
GMC-
Hummer-
Oldsmobile-
Pontiac-
Saab-
Saturn-
Holden-
Opel-
Vauxhall-
Fiat-
Subaru-
Isuzu-
Suzuki-
FORD=8 Different Auto Companies
Ford-13,000 Dealers
Lincoln-1,561 Dealers
Mercury-2,141 Dealers
Mazda-6,131 Dealers
Volvo-2,500 Dealers
Jaguar-787 Dealers
Land Rover-1,808 Dealers
Aston Martin-100 Dealers
GM Sales=1.5 Billion for First Quarter 2003 Fiscal Year
FORD Sales=896 Million for First Quarter 2003 Fiscal Year

GM Involvment=Vehicles, Aviation, Entertainment Systems, OnStar, Banking Services, Boating Engines,

Satellite Systems
FORD Involvment=Vehicles Only with 2 Rental Car Systems.

GM cars=94+
Ford Cars=45+

Now lets figure this out. First off Ford has a Lower Number of cars they sell, yet the manage to make more money off of their Automotive Department then GM does. BUT Secondly, GM Automotive Sales actually only made 546 Million for First Quarter 2003 Fiscal Year compated to Ford's 896 Million. So this is what I have come up with.

GM Is a bigger company then Ford, but Ford Automotive is a larger company then GM Automotive.

GM Automotive Sales less vechicles then Ford even though they have 50+ more cars on their lineup.

So some of you are correct in the assumption that GM is bigger then Ford. But since this is talking about cars in Reality Ford is bigger then GM so your wrong also.

GM Asia and North America Divison are the ONLY divisons making money. All of their other ones are losing money. Ford on the other hand is profiting for almost EVERY division, so overall Ford has more value worldwide then GM.

Now this is not a post as to whether or not which car is better, personally I like ford, but I do like some chevy's. But as some of you said "You cannot talk about chevy without GM" where here it is. Ford overall is stronger then GM as GM is overall losing more money then GM, and sells LESS Cars and Trucks!

So to sum it up:

Ford=Less Cars they have to produce but they sell more resulting in a higher profit to loss ratio then GM.

=

Ford is better then GM. (Not neccesarry quality but in value)

*EDITED* This was edited because I messed up on some wording so I fixed it.
