Ford surpasses Honda and meets Toyota in consumer survey

I still think that American car designers turn out crappy stuff and blame it on a public without taste. Most of the cars from the big three are eye garbage no matter what anyone says about consumer satisfaction (see BMW, Mercedes and Volvo sweeping those ratings– Volvo even with Ford ownership?!?!?! wtf people? communicate!!) but still, this is great news. And I hope it has a ripple affect in the rest of the domestic economy and industrial landscape. We need it.
