131. American cars being great?
Edited on Thu Jan-03-08 05:56 AM by boricua79
I'll stick with Japanese. Haven't bought an American in my life. The only American car I semi-owned (owned by my girlfriend at the time) broke down at 150,000 k (transmission issue). Never will buy an American car after that.
