24. And MY experience with "Japanese Quality":
Datsun 210: JUNK. Cooling fans cratered, after market AC never worked right.

Datsun 310: JUNK. Self-destructed by blowing a connecting rod and destroying the engine 5000 miles out of waranty.

Subaru wagon: JUNK. TWO warped heads, replaced TWICE 5000 miles out of warranty, cost 500 bucks to replace the washer pump: IT WAS UNDERNEATH THE RIGHT FRONT FENDER which had to be pulled.

Toyota Sienna: JUNK. LEANED on the slide door sheet metal and it BENT in. AC work done, Fan work done, radio died-500 bucks to replace, out of warranty.

My Saturn burns a LITTLE oil at 150000 miles.

This is NOT singing the praises of Saturn. They used to build a FAIR car, not a great one. And NOW they are just another GM switch a nameplate.
