I have to agree. I owned a number of GM and Ford cars, and they all
turned out to be terrible cars. I had an old fashioned mentality that I
have to buy American built cars. But, I cannot afford to keep
supporting. Every American car that I owned ran me ragged in repairs
after the warranty finished!
A friend and my sister dragged me to a Nissan dealer. They told me that
if I buy a Nissan or any Japanese car and I want to return it, they will
pay the depreciation and losses.
I bought a Pathfinder, and later on an Altima. I kept the Altima and
replaced the Pathfinder with a Murano just a few years ago. I had the
Pathfinder for over 18 years. All the Nissan cars that I had were
extremely dependable giving many years of trouble free operation, and
there were no repairs necessary at all. Over the years, I only had to do
general maintenance such as the oil changes, filters, breaks, tires, fan
belts, battery, the odd small repair, and etc. I was telling some of my
friends that the Nissan cars that I had were running almost like a
refrigerator. They just keep running trouble free!
It is unfortunate, but I can see the American car manufactures
eventually failing or having to sell out to foreign ownership. I cannot
understand what the mentality is, or what the full problem is that the
American car manufactures cannot make descent dependable cars!
I will never go back to an American made car!
