This was passed on to me by a good friend, who knows how I feel about the auto bailouts, and that I give Ford a lot of credit for not taking government money.

Apparently, I’m not alone.  This is a Rasmussen report:

46% More Likely To Buy Ford ‘Cause It Didn’t Get A Bailout

 

Public opposition to the auto bailouts may translating into consumer buying decisions, with 46% of Americans now saying they are more likely to buy a car from Ford because it did not take government money to stay in business. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 13% say they are less likely to buy a Ford because the company didn’t receive a bailout, and 37% say it has no impact on their car buying.

Keep at it Ford.  We’ll keep driving (or at least I will as soon as I get my truck).

    I am thinking Saturn, since they were sold, they should not have any government money.

    I come from a traditionally very anti-Ford family, but everyone has since decided they have to change their tune and will buy Ford in the future. That wasn’t easy for them 🙂

    Maybe this will be the beginning of “reverse boycotting”. I too am considering a Ford truck now. If they would just do something about that annoying whine in their steering.
