Some have said this place is boring so I figured I'd add excitement by bringing out the gun toting, America is the best, your with us or against us crew.
The US still produces crappy cars or at least not as good as the Japanese...but getting better.
I know you don't believe they hype and your dad has had a Ford for 29 years that runs like a champ and your uncle too but....
And yes Consumer Reports is the end all be all on this matter.
I'm just saying ...and I almost forgot ...tubes are lame!
