Toyota or Acura or Subaru.

If I need a fullsize truck in the future, it will be a Ford.

If I need a fullsize SUV in the future, it will be a 98-99 GMC Tahoe or Suburban.

Chevy trucks for sure!
Fords still has never figured out how to build a decent engine. And don't try to tell me they're diesel is better than everybody elses. Because it's not a Ford, its an Intenational Harvester.

Mopar or no car!
Real Mopar though, RWD V8 or /6 powered.

I've had/driven just about every US brand of car & truck at one point. BOP/Cad/Chevy/GMC, Ford/Lincoln/Mercury & even a few AMC thrown in. The only foreign car that has been in the household was an older Toyota Carina. Good little buzzbomb, great mileage, would buy another in a heartbeat. OTOH you couldn't give me a Ford Taurus or Tempo , two of the biggest POS cars I've ever had the misfortune to deal with.

I hear you and understand where you are coming from but why punish yourself? Most of the imports have less issues and are better cars. I own a Chevy truck and a Nissan car. The chevy is nice but it's always having problems. My nissan is always dependable. Besides, every domestic car that I work on has a FAIR number of parts made outside the USA.

But it goes further than that, I'm a mechanic and I see this firsthand, and on a much larger scale. I wouldn't buy a car solely based on where it's produced, unless it's a better car for the money. The American cars for the most part are not close to the imports in value and refinement. I can't afford to be that selective.

I would still buy an American truck over an import, but not a Ford, make mine a GMC. They are hard to beat.
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 9:28:13 AM EDT
I've had nothing but GMs (they're cheap, and I can beat the hell out of them for a couple hundred thousand miles before they go tits-up).

That said, if I were to buy something new right, it would end up being an import of some form. Aside from the Corvette and GT, domestic cars all look like crap.

Plenty of time to care more about the US and less about Japan.

Btw, I never have issues with my Fords either. My Merc has 165K and runs fine, my truck 100K, my expedition 80K. I guess if it was japanese it would have less than zero issues?

Are you a WWII Veteran?

My grandfather was in Tokyo bay on the USS Proteus when Japan surrender. The previous 3 years he made 4 war patrols on the USS Gunnel.

He drove a Toyota from 1986 until his death last year. He was a man. (edited out personal attack.--bigscrun)

Chevy.

After my Grandpa got back from WW2, he went to the Ford dealership with some waiver allowing him to buy a new car before other citizens because of his service. The Ford dealer to him that he didn't have to sell him shit.

That was 1945. My dad had 1 Ford in college that died a violent death because light pole+ ice+ 2wd truck= dead Ford.

So, 1 Ford in 60 years. The rest being Chevy, GMC, Olds, Pontiac, and Jeep.

I'm a Chevy guy, but I'll end up driving a damn Dodge when we get the motor back in and my dad wants me to sell my Blazer.

It will be a sad day, indeed

They are cheap to fix, and easy to keep on the road even after 20 years. I dont think that you can go fater, for cheaper, while being more reliable. If you could, I would.

My Grandpa would just as soon shoot a mitsubishi to pieces as look at it. Seriously. There is a whole slew of japanese companies he refuses to puchase products because they were so instrumental in the japanese war effort.

Considering only the "affordable" brands:

I like Fords in general.
I like GM V-8 engines and auto trannys.
I like Honda/Toyota build quality, brakes, manual trannys, and I-4/V-6 engines.

My preference in exterior styling is all over the map.

Truth is , I've been making a living working on cars
and trucks for better then 20 years .

They are all pieces of shit in one way or another !

So after years of wasting my money them . I have
come to realize that it isn't the brand or model that
makes a great car . It's the completely random occurrence
of getting a vehicle made up of well matched parts .

It doesn't matter if it's a Yugo or a Bentley when that
magical combination comes together . It just works .

Me .... I only drive vehicles that other people have
thrown away

Well it hasn't broke yet, and its got around 240,000 miles on it. Yet it still rides and drives better than a Ford.
