    the have ripped off everything else
    form the euros and americans
    why not names too


    no honour to design a car themselves

    they even claim twin cams
    turbos and variable valve timing as their own

     
  2. If this is a Mazda, then why is it's name the Familia?<!-- Signature -->

    Define "ripped off"...

    Mazda didn't invent the rotary (a German did) - but they're the only ones seriously developing and utilizing it (and in the rotary Mazda has the most powerful/lighest/smallest otto-cycle engine design in the industry).

    Mazda didn't invent the miller cycle (an American did - I think) - but they're the only ones putting it to use in auto's (and in the miller they have the lightest/most powerful/smallest/most fuel efficient piston engines going).

    As far as I can tell, Mazda is the ONLY car manufacturer to use anything but plain-ol' otto-cycle and diesel-cycle piston engines – which makes Mazda far-and-away the most innovative manufacture in my mind.
