I'm inclined to think that better design, and a stable of cars that people actually wanted to drive accounts for most of the success at Ford. To be sure, the government will run Chrysler into non-existence, and I don't have great hopes for the long term success of GM. Still, to attribute these successes and failures to the rationality of the consumer is giving them more credit that I think they warrant. If consumers were acting truly rationally, Chrysler wouldn't have had a single sale, aside from Vipers, in the last 5 years.
