My last two cars have been Mazda and Subaru. Both companies have specific design and engineering philosophies. Both companies have championed very unique engineering (Subaru Boxer and Mazda Rotary engines, Subaru's unique AWD). German automakers have distinctive design and engineering philosophies as well. Why can't the same be said about American automakers? Ford, Chevy, Dodge, etc are brands but there are no consistent engineering philosophies that guide them. Am I missing something or is there nothing engineering wise that really sets any US automaker apart?
