U.S. car companies do poorly in survey
Japanese cars rule in reliability - Mercury sole Big 3 brand in Consumer
Reports' top 10
"I have tried to live my life so that my family would love me and my friends
respect me. The others can do whatever the hell they please."
So true, but would you agree that it makes more sense to not blindly trust
and believe an anonymous poster to a new group?
By that I mean, a writer for a major magazine is held accountable for the
things he has written. A news group poster can post anything he wants
without accountability to anybody.
We all know of a number of "domestic car manufacturer cheerleaders" now
don't we ?
They seem to post a lot of opinions that they call truth".
I'm not cheering for any manufacture simply posting facts to debunk all of
the anti-GM crap, posted by foreign car owners in this GM NG. Everything I
post is factual, if you want to do a search for facts. If these reports
were to believed Ford and Mercury should be side by side in any comparison
since most are the same vehicles with different styling and trim levels.
How is it none, if any, of the so called most dependable vehicles are not
the best selling among it competitors? In the real world the truest survey
as to which are the best among its comparators is the ones that sell the

Confirm the source!
Confirm the authenticity!
Laugh it off!
Some dream examples:
The Cadillac Deville is supposed to be the number one selling
sedan in Japan, not the number one selling car?
This was quoted in a Japanese network documentary
last Sunday, whether or not it true and documentable?
Can you imagine if the US Department of Defense got hard
up and published bids for toyota staff cars?
Can you imagine if the White House got hard up and
published bids for toyota limos?
Can you imagine if Brinks got hard up and
published bids for toyota armored cars?
Can you imagine if trucking industry got hard up and
published bids for toyota Class 7 & 8 Trucks with
Luberfiner rice oil filters?
What do you do with a rice burner in recent years that have
soft camshafts that have a useful life of only 20,000 miles?
The Camry is indeed the number one selling single CAR but NOT the number one
selling vehicle. The Camry is the number FOUR selling vehicle in the US.
The number one selling single vehicle is the Ford F150, by nearly twice as
many as the Camry. The Silverado is number two and the Doge Ram is number
three, all of which outsell the Camry in big numbers.
The total numbers are available on the US Commerce Department web site for
those willing to do a search.
You are free to believe whatever you chose I could not care less what you
believe.. You only posted base prices that did not even include shipping,
not real world prices. You must be a used car buyer, if you want to be
enlightened do your own homework, go get a drive home price on several 2006
However quality levels can be quite different.
Over the years I've rented many different cars.
The Pontiac GA and the similar Malibu were surprisingly quite different.
I judged the Pontiac very good, but the Malibu poor, mainly due to the
poor design and quality of the interior.
