I had to get a new car this week after holding out for 10 years without a car payment.

My new purchase was an American mad Honda Accord.

Previous vehicle was a Mercury that featured a blown motor due to a $2 part failing in the water pump (In all fairness Ford paid for 80% of the replacement.), wiring harness that literally fell apart ($1,100 job which shocked the hell out of me.), power door locks that froze in the “locked” position and a failed odometer at 30,000 miles rendering the car, under warranty no less, TMU and forever value impaired at trade in.

So between bailouts and that ownership experience my purchasing of big 3 autos is done forever. I will only purchase American produced non-UAW products.

You should have bought a “happy” Honda Accord......

Those “mad” ones can be trouble.....

Depending on the future economic conditions of this country, foreign manufacturers may end up retracting eventually. I hate to sound trite, but have you driven a Ford, lately?
