were told by consumor reports ( import biased) that they care about qulity more than design, which i think is bull and a poor excuse for designing boring cars, when if an american car is slightly designed different , its another failed car. but yes i think the boring and sometimes UGLY.

People fail to realize that America makes good cars and have been brain washed to buy a Honda or a Toyota, by the way they have their share of recalls as well some are serious.

:iagree: That is one ugly truck. One of my subscriptions is Automobile magazine, and one of the writer's did an article on the new Tundra and said himself, "This is one ugly looking truck".

No offense to anyone here, but I have never owned a non-American vehicle, nor do I necessarily plan to do so! Mind you, the American companies have partnerships with the foreign companies, and vice-versa, but I've always bought domestic. :patriot:

:iagree:

i have never owned an import and most likely never will.

but i have (on crack yes, NOT REALLY BUT THATS HOW NUTS I WAS) owned a ford expidetion and 95 mustang gt, gt was cool, but the expi was crap. i have told the story on here before so i wont tell it again.

but i think the tundra commercials are crazy, i cant wait for the class action law suits to come in about people who attempted some of them. :lol::nono:

My 89 Cherokee had an AW Aisin Warner transmission and had never been cracked at 250,000 miles when I sold it.

I can't argue with you on that... yes they are expensive but as long you have warranty on these machines your fine. The reason I sold it because warranty was running out.:D. got rid of it and I have the newer model :)

If in the off chance I did ever purchase a foreign auto, it'd most likely be something German... And yeah man those W140's are hard to come by and are quite the beast from what I hear!

What ever you do avoid VW's those are the biggest pile of crap cars ever made, how do I know? I have 2 of those in the family fleet right now, we are driving them till they blow up and the Tahoe is paid off and then I want the wifey in a G8 or a Cadillac CTS.

CTS, CTS. im not much of a pontiac fan and the new g8 looks cool, but the cts is now the car of the year and its a cadillac, all that means better resale in the future, and if you want a little help blowing up the VW's give me a call:lol: i got a rocket launcher that will work.

I hate those POS car with a passion, it is a good day to get out of the stealership service department under $800.

if you find a w140 with a 6.0 v12 you have struck gold, thats like finding a 69 dodge charger with a 426 hemi in it. ;) :yesnod:
