We drive the 2010 Mazda3 just before Mazda officially unveils the car at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show.

LUDVIGSEN’S COLUMN: Time to pick winners

This is crunch time for the US auto industry-and with good reason. The industry is facing a crisis unmatched since the Great Depression. When crises occur, the opportunity presents itself to achieve dramatic change. We’ve known for years that the American industry is in desperate need of dramatic change.
