  • Re: Buying American Cars What Does It Mean?

    To me buying American means spending exorbitantly more on replacement parts, tow trucks, and repair labor. Great for the company that made the shoddy vehicle (probably make more money on replacement parts than the car itself), tow truck companies, and auto repair shops, but bad for any other businesses where I'd otherwise more optimally spend that hard earned money.
    Here, maybe this will make you feel better...
  • Re: Buying American Cars What Does It Mean?



    So the Ford Fusion made in Mexico is more "American" than my Accord made in Ohio?

    Hmmm.

    We'll need to agree to disagree.

    I'll admit, I was a bit disappointed when I found out my 2012 Ram was hecho en Meh-hico...

    I'll also confess to once owning a 2000 Intrepid that was made in Canada, eh. And, it's a-boot time I fessed up to my old '82 Cutlass Supreme, which was snuck across the Northern border, as well. :p

    You can see that at your Lexus dealer B)
    I was thinking that as well, and was gonna post a Lexus grille. But with my luck it would be a model that one of our forum members owns


  • Re: Chronic Car Buyers Anonymous

    Agree.
    STRONGLY agree.
    The only one who [ one hopes ] is satisfied with a choice is
    the one paying for the vehicle.
    I am driving a car many here consider to be -
    Too big,
    Too heavy and
    Too expensive.
    And that is fine with me...

    Heck, I can go one worse than that...I'm driving a Hemi vehicle that is about the length of a '76 Buick Electra, but can only seat two people in comfort (legally). And the last thing that it had to haul in recent memory was a bag of cat litter :p

  • Re: I spotted a NEW (insert make/model) today!

    Saw a new base model Lexus NX in what I call "middle aged woman dark red", even more unpretty without the F-Sport gingerbread, and looks like it has a huge front overhang at some angles.
    There was an old saying, that the 1961 Plymouth sparked a whole generation of Japanese movie monsters. Apparently its influence still has a stranglehold on Japanese culture...this time with the car stylists.
