qotd which carmaker would you buy stock in

We've asked before about which EV startup you would invest in, but what about full-line/legacy carmakers? If you had some extra cash lying around, which one would you invest it in?

Don't just tell us who, tell us why. What has you feeling bullish on automaker X? Is it model mix, product-planning strategy, EV investments ... go ahead and let it all out.

As for me, well, I am ethically prohibited from intentionally investing in an automaker we cover, so I don't know who I'd pick. But most of you have no such restrictions. So, what say you?

    BYD, Buffett seems to know what he's doing.

      We've established Buffet is big on Chinese automakers. GM is a natural choice

    Subaru. Toyota will buy them someday soon.

      Perhaps Toyota will buy them. Subaru Corporation (formerly Fuji Heavy Industries) would survive just fine building wings for Boeing B-77X's among other items in their aerospace division.

    None. They are all virtue signaling with these garbage government cars (EVs) and, unfortunately, that is a money loser. Look at Ford. Massive price increases (or price gouging?) and they have stopped making any money on the fake Mustang. It still costs Ford $25k MORE to build a fake Mustang than a comparable Edge. That is not a situation that attracts investment.

      2nd that. Yeah right when the auto aftermarket is growing by leaps/bounds? The parts are worth more than the sum. Many times in this case. You have to look for the signs (signaling). The car market is in for a lot of trouble.
