    Default Ford and Mazda

    How many percent is Mazda owned by Ford Motor Company? A few years ago
    (perhaps over 5 years ago), I saw on TV that the president of Ford
    Motor Co. mentioned that Ford owned 25% of Mazda. Do they own Mazda
    more now? If it is only 25%, how come Ford include Mazda in their
    flagship? In addition, how many percent does Ford own Volvo, and
    Jaguar?
    I went to Mazda's website, and there is nothing mentioned that it is
    owned by Ford.
    Thanks for info

    Ford owns 33.4% of Mazda (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mazda) and all of
    Volvo and Jaguar.

    Foreign individuals or companies can not 'own' a Japanese company, as 'Boon'
    Pickens discovered. The max amount was 25% up until a number of years ago
    when it was raised to 33.5%. That is the reason that the company that
    developed the current hybrid power system developed jointly by Ford, via
    Volvo, and another Japanese auto company, whose name escapes me at the
    moment, could be bought by Toyota and not Ford. The three auto companies
    are cross licensed to the technology.

    Could you please learn to stop top-posting? It makes it really hard to
    follow the thread.

    There are some things that are worth getting bent out of shape about and
    top posting, bottom posting or inline posting are not on my list of
    things to get upset about.

    That's a good thing, because some of us prefer top posting. I agree bottom
    posting makes sense if people would trim....... but most of them don't.

    Hertz was sold, I think last year. So Ford no longer owns it.

    Thanks for the info.
    My main question still remains. If Ford only owns 33.5% of Mazda, did
    Mazda gives a blessing for Ford to assume Mazda under their wings? It
    is odd that you assume that you own other company, if you only own
    33.5%. Perhaps there is somekind of agreement that Ford can put Mazda
    under its umbrella? I own 0.00000000001% of Microsoft stock (just an
    example), but I cannot say to everybody that I own MS ?

    Regarding top of bottom posting, is there actually a "standard rule" on
    how to reply in the newsgroup? I prefer top posting better, as the
    previous postings are below it. This is more convenient if the string
    of posting is getting longer. Unless, there is also a rule that you
    have to clip previous postings when you reply?
