If that's the way Volvo's styling is headed, I really need to get a new one before they ruin the whole line. That thing looks like an extra from the Beijing Opera.

Ford owns Mazda.
Ford owns Volvo.
Therefore, Mazda=Volvo.

My last two cars have been Mazdas and I think they're great.

Actually, Ford only owns 33% of Mazda. But they do use the 6 and 3 platforms for almost every car they make, so they may as well own all of it.

Does steel cost less than glass? There's got to be a reason car makers are moving to portholes for windows. I'm guessing cost. I can't be looks.
