Last year when GM was really in trouble they sold all their stock/shares of Subaru. Then about 6-8 months ago (If I remember correctly) Toyota bought all or most of those shares.

I saw a bunch of posts awhile ago, when the MS6 1st came out, by an MS6owner, on a Mazda board and a bunch of parts were actually stamped with "FOMOCO" . He removed some parts, uprights and such, trying to find more ailgnment adjustments. So much for no Ford parts... meehh..I'm sure someone really interested could find said posts...Me=too lazy
Pretty much any of those Ford partially owned companies, Aston, Mazda etc.. WILL have some actual Ford parts.. Does that mean the car is a POS??.. I don't really think so.. I actually think the MS6 is a great FWD.... FWD car.. which living mostly in the NE would jus be a hassle for me.. so I wouldn't own one.. Now.. if I lived in a no snow zone, AND didn't wanna mod my car, I'd seriously think bout the MS6..
Like so many things in life, cars are a matter of taste. Like, if I wanted a ripper of a muscle car, unike SOUTHPAW, I'd be gettin a Viper and twinturboin that to 1,000+ HP... I jus think muscecars shoud be hot and cramped inside..
Jus be glad that we all live in a wonderful time with tons of great cars to choose from... I'm even happier i get to make my living being invovled with all these wickedly fun autos..
