    This isn't a baited question at all.

    The next SRT-4 will pwn though, although technically its a Mitsubishi. :mamoru:

    Because they use boring ugly designs, inferior materials, and poor build quality to make BILLIONS of dollars in losses and cant sell a car unless they slash the price utilimately killing resale and market for their cars

    i can see your arguement seeing as the gto is a halfway decent car. But the 350z is still a much better car for the money.

    the overhead cam design pre dates pushrods. But as far modern technology goes pushrods are very dated.

    I think its mostly that the American low-end econoboxes and cheap mid-sized cars are the shitboxes. The sports cars, trucks, and high end luxury all seem to be made very very well.

    And pretty much anything made by Chrysler after Daimler took it over has been pretty good.

    But yeah, when I go commuter shopping I'll be looking for japanese car :hs:
