Looks like my wifes Mazda 5 may soon be sold with a Nissan badge on it!

Hmm weird, but cool I guess. I'm a Mazda guy also, have only owned 3 of them though.

The Japanese have a long history of cooperation among car companies. Just look at the past co-owners of Fuji Heavy equipment and JATCO (transmissions). To bad the big three didn't do this.

Trivia: What GM muscle car icon used a Ford manual transmission?????? GM did not have a synchromesh 3 speed at the time so they substituted a Ford (code S) unit.
