seems like all the fords built elsewhere are good, most of the fords built in the US aren't that great.

Haha, no offense taken.

You should complain to American automobile manufacturers to stop outsourcing and place a higher priority on quality than quantity/cheap labor.

Heh, you can at least outmaneuver it. Unless you're in a drag race, then you're SOL.

I've always been a hardcore Ferrari and Lamborghini fan, the very two super car manufacturer's that really started up the super car market and made it what it is today.

American members said the same thing, on another thread, one wanted someone to recommend a good car as a first time car, I said the VW Golf, I was almost jeered off the thread, they said that Golfs were rubbish, tinny & unreliable, then somebody stepped in, & said something like what you have said here.

that's true. I rented that movie "who killed the electric car?" last night and I think it's pretty interesting. the GM EV1 wasn't actually a bad car but GM pulled the plug on it (bad pun sorry) and crushed them all except for a select few but they aren't running anymore. It went from 0-60MPH in around 8 seconds and held a charge for 80 miles and could be charged anywhere there's an outlet. I don't think electric cars are a bad idea, if they could get more range out of them. There is also talk of a plug-in hybrid which can be powered by electric or gas instead of using electricity to simply cruise the vehicle. They also said that the MPG would be around 100-135MPG which is pretty impressive. I'd say hybrid is probably the next big thing but who knows? As long as we're not as reliant on foreign fuel I'm happy.

German because of the BMW. Quality car but it comes with a steep price. I've driven an old Peougot and I liked the way it drove but they don't sell Peugots here in the States so definitely BMW.
