All you “American cars suck” assholes can blow me. Quality is absolutely comparible, it’s just become “cool” to badmouth American made as trash.
My 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan has 120k and is still just as strong and solid as when it was new. I was pulling 75 mph up a 6% grade at 9000 ft yesterday, passing Hondas and VWs all the way up.
My 1998 Dodge 1500 4x4 will still get me anywhere I need to go, and I guarantee you’ll have to chain up your Toyota long before I have to.
My 2004 Pontiac Vibe is basically a Toyota Matrix, but it’s still Made in America at the NUMMI plant in CA. Great little car that gets 32mpg average, I bought it used with 38k on it and have put over 50k on in three years. Love the low maint and an reliability, but it really isn’t any better or worse than my Dodge.
GM cars and trucks and ford trucks are certianly up to par if not better than most of their foreign counter parts. I am not a big fan of the ford car auto trannies. The focus is a fun right though.
I worked on cars through college and swor I would never own a mopar. They were all cheap shit. This was before being bought by Daimler though. I am sure they are better now than in the mid 90s. I still cant get past their interiors though. I really wanted a 300c but just could not get past the cheap plastic in the interior. We also looked at a new durango before buying a used Envoy LT and thought the same of that interior.
I can’t recall ever riding in a honda or nissan I liked. The Acura and Infiniti lines are much better.
Some Toyota’s are pretty nice. I heard they had some axel trouble with Tundras. Hopefully the new ones are better.
Hyundia is the one to watch. I have rented a few of their cars and they are not bad at all. The rental car versions are usually pretty sad for any model.
I will never buy another car made by the UAW or from a company partially owned by the UAW. Luckily there are more options now for those that would like to purchase vehicles built in the US but not by a power hungry union ripping off the tax payer.
