7. I'd buy 'em if ...
Ford, et al, would bring their European-flavor cars over here! There are a lot of cute cars that USians would buy but for the fact that the US market is not perceived as sophisticated, and therefore, not provided with a wide variety of choices. It's not just the Big Three; all carmakers have exciting cars not for sale here. So, when you compare cars available to us within the price range of all those Honda midsize passenger cars you notice, the overseas makers make better cars for the money.
