FORBES: Four of the seven vehicles on our list of the worst-made cars on the road come from GM brands. And all of the cars on the list — including Chrysler's Dodge Nitro and Jeep Wrangler — are made by Detroit's Big Three. Only one car on the list is made by Ford Motor.
Those studies are all from Consumer Reports: The Most Reliable Cars Report; Best and Worst Values Report; Best and Worst Safety Performance Survey; and the CR overall scores for 2010 vehicles.
Do you think there is a correlation of poorly made/undependable automobiles and that most are UAW built vehicles? Poor craftsmenship?
Would you relate the safety issues to design flaws?
In your opinion(as a consumer and partial owner of 2 of the big 3)~What should they do to produce a better vehicle?

We have always bought Ford cars never had any trouble with them. My husbands Focus is 10 years old still running perfectly. We take very good care of our vehicles and they do tend to last. My friends have a Toyota Tundra it is only 18 months old he had to use the Lemon Law on it and now is buying a Ford F150. The breaks stuck one time and he hit a car. The last 6 months the car just died while commuting home from work. He drives in Los Angeles traffic so that is a problem when he blocks traffic 8 times in 6 months. Toyota sent him a letter stating he was trying to profit off their recent troubles and said they would not service the truck anymore so he had to get an attorney to deal with this and get a vehicle that works. All car manufacturers are capable of producing crap.
