Well, for me it would have to be pretty much anything from the 80's, save for a GN or an SVO mustang.

As far as current cars go, here is the list.

Aztec - Just plain ugly.
Colorado - Complete and utter crap. Even the S-10 was better.
Freestar - "New" 3.9 with less hp than old 3.8???!! Ugly styling. Worst van in class.

Now don't think that I am biased against the domestics, here are some shitty imports.

xB - Ugly new-age styling.
That new tiny Mazda5 Van (whatever it's called) - 160hp 4-cyl in a heavy van??
BMW's - Every model now looks like ass.

As far as the domestic vs. import thing goes, they are pretty even. The domestics have crappy
quality, but make up for it with generally good performance and cheap price. Imports are made to
better standards, but seem to have bloated styling these days and higher prices.

#22, Kind of depends on the domestic or import car in question, doesn't it?

"Domestics are low quality" is a cliche perpetuated by people who have never driven them.

#23, I disagree, sir. my reasoning for thinking that is BECAUSE of my experience with domestic cars.

#24, I'm gonna have to agree. They might not suck as much as they did in the 70s and 80s, but they've still got a ways to go.

#24, So you've had experience with all domestic cars, and there's a magical aura over North America that somehow prevents it from building a car as good as any car from overseas?

I can assure you, the US doesn't produce anything as low quality as Mitsubishi. Yet because of Toyota's good build quality, everyone just assumes that Japanese cars are all built well. It's overgeneralizations like that that irk me.

#17, On that subject, lets say any big ole American truck driven by a gritboy/redneck/hick/jucket (SE Mass term) with Git-R-Dun, Pissin' Calvins or Yosemite Sam/naked lady mudflaps/"Ya'll will hafta kill me to get mah gun" bumper sticker.

#28, I agree, they started the whole aero trend 20 years ago (okay so they copied the Audi 5000) but it recent years with the cancelation of the SHO, and the boring 2000+ models, they've become less interesting.

#26, Wow. way to take things out of context. I've had bad experience with all branches of the "big 3", yes. My toyotas have never caused me much trouble. I don't think that all japanese cars that are built well, and I'm a big fan of BMWs as well. If you can give me a guarantee that a big 3 car will perform as well as my corollas have, I'll drive the hell out of it.

The Taurus to me is just like any number of well-built but bland, FWD V6 sedans. It's America's Camry. The car for people who don't care about their cars.

But I'd love to have a SHO.

#30, Every car company builds good cars and bad cars. It's a little incongruous to drive a 1990 Chevy Beretta and as a result say that every Chevrolet sucks, same goes for any manufacturer.

If you examine overall quality records, the North American auto industry outperforms Europe and only lags slightly behind the Asians.

We had a 76 Volare, total piece of crap, it was always breaking down. One time when I was about 5, we were going over a 2 lane supension bridge, and the turd broke down. My mom said she would never drive that piece of crap again, so we used it to haul garbage to the dump (a fitting role) until we unloaded it on some poor sap about a year later. We had just gotten an 86 Camry (great car) and vowed never to only buy Toyotas until America learns how to build cars. And that piece of junk Volare was actually a birthday present for my dad, I think my mom should have gave him a toaster, instead.

#33, On the flip side, my family had a '78 Aspen SE, which was a great car. Unbreakable slant 6.

My only complaint on that car was it seemed to have a major rust problem. It had rust in the rockers and actual rust holes just under the taillights....which was odd for a 1-owner car purchased new in Alabama and previously kept under a carport.

The last laugh appears to be on us though, as there's still relitivley (SP) lots of Aspens and Volares around here, but you hardly ever see a Japanese car from the 70s.

I was shocked to see an early '80s Civic 4 door in town the other day...a decent-looking one, no less.

It was identical to this one (tiny pic alert): http://www.prelude.ru/internetclub/...ll_photo_79.jpg

#36, My dad lives by KU, and today when I was up there, looking for a freind I stumbled apon a baby blue wagon one in mint shape. I also saw one of those little Tercel hatchback things from like '85 or somethin. Brown in color, but looked good for its age.

My family had an 87 Chevy Celebrity (with the optional V6), which spent more time having warranty work on it in the first year than we actually got to drive it, so we traded it in on a '89 Buick Century. the Century had transmission issues which GM refused to repair, telling us it was our fault when we had barely driven the car. we won a court case against them, and sold the car back to GM, then purchased a '90 Taurus. similar tranny problems, and again it spent most of its early days with warranty work, but (barely) lasted until we bought the '98 neon. the a/c never worked and the electronics kept shorting out, which dodge said for some reason wasn't covered in the bumper-to-bumper... then came the 2000 cavalier, which pieces kept falling out of, gauges broke/never worked to begin with... then the '02 focus which for some reason kept blowing head gaskets... my dad finally gave up and bought a 03 Camry and hasn't looked back. These are my multiple reasons.
