48. Aveo is built in Korea
I have owned and driven Ford for the last 33 years,and have never been stranded beside the road.I am in the used car business and the Japenese and Korean cars are just not as great as you people think they are.They give just as much if not more trouble than the domestics.My personal car that I have driven the past 2 years is 1995 Mustang GT,188,000 miles uses no oil ice cold a/c no squeaks,rattles or leaks.It gets 25 M.P.G. on interstate and 20 around town and has no problem reaching 100 mph before the end of the interstate ramp.In my opinion thats not bad for a car that I paid 1500.00 for how many Honda /Toyota owners can say that.Oh and by the way other than maint.and brake pads it has not had a bolt turned on it,still has original plugs and wires dated 1995.My wife`s 2001 Ford Focus has 76000 miles no problems with it either.I also have 1993 Ford LA9000 Aeromax with over ONE MILLION miles on it(1,080,643 to be exact)it hauls all of my cars and cars for several other dealers in my area.I have owned other Fords with very high milage all have proven very reliable that`s not to say that I haven`t saw some give problems at low milage I have,but I have seen Toyota`s Hondas,etc. have major trouble at very low milage also and parts for them are very very expensive,used engines and transmissions are hard to find where most domestics are easy to find and cheaper.Another thing I can`t uderstand is why Americans are so anti American,I know why everyone else hates us,but why do we hate ourselves?
