that's a low bar you set for your vehicles. No wonder you like your rice burners - lol
Only domestic I'd buy would be a Corvette, because it's the only car of American brand that actually beats the competition for price/performance.
But... I'm not 60 years old, odd shaped, or unhappy with my sex life... sooooo...
Mustang whupps some serious arse for the $$$
Yeah. The new one isn't as bad looking as the last few years looks-wise either.
but it's still too boxy for me. Looks kind of clumsy for a sports car.
beauty in the eyes of the beholder - lol
I like the Mustang but I will never own one cause I could not afford too drive it. I could buy one but I could not afford the insurance, plus despite that back seat it is esentially a two seater and that ain't gonna work for me at this time - some day though
The truth is when you test drive a Chevy or Ford you might think they are equal to a Toyota or Honda. After the first 100,000 miles you will see the difference.
Besides many of the rice burners are built right here in the US. Also many of the Chevys and Fords are built in Mexico or Canada. I'd rather have a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry built in IN or KY than any of the crap US makes.
By the way I have purchased three Nissans for my last three new cars. Two Altimas and one Sentra. One Altima lasted 350,000 miles. The one that took its place has 200,000 miles on it and all I have done is change the oil, tires and battery. Both of those cars were made in Smyrna.
The only US made car I've had decent success with was a Saturn. It did pretty well until it gave up the ghost around 200,000 miles.
Ranger is at 229k and is a stickshifting 2.3L 4 banging shortbeded metal load of dependability!
oh and the sad truth is most people never plan on hitting 100k with a new vehicle. Yet these same folks wonder why they never can save any $$$
This week, car manufacturer, Toyota, recalled 10 million vehicles worldwide, the company’s largest ever recall, to address problems with faulty (sticking) accelerator pedals. This move comes after a fatal accident that left three people dead in California where relatives of the deceased are suing the company.
New damning revelations are appearing daily with Toyota desperately seeking to protect any further damage to their brand and reputation. Toyota has put the value of lost sales caused by the recall at £500m. It is estimated that it will cost a further £700m to fix the affected vehicles. In addition, some 6,000 Peugeot and Citroën models have been affected with the same issues, with Honda earlier this week also announcing a recall of over 646,000 cars worldwide due to a switch defect that could cause a fire.
People who drive glass Sportracs...
