Hi all. I'm interested to know what people's opinions are on American cars? I know they generally get a pasting in the UK press, but are they as bad as all that?
I've owned two yank tanks - previously a Ford Explorer and currently a Camaro. Both have pretty rubbish interiors, but as cars, they did/do exactly what they said on the tin. The Explorer (2008 model, so no 'exploder' jibes thanks! ) went brilliantly off road (mainly dunes and rocks round my way) was very comfortable and had loads of toys. The Camaro is again everything I expected of it i.e. very fast but can actually go around corners. Though it does feel like driving a very agile tank.
So you may think that my experience of American cars has been good, but I driven some really horribel ones. Chevrolet Cruze (2011 model) is a blamange on wheels for example and I wont even try to articulate the horror that is the Dodge Caravan.
So, there's good'uns and wrong'uns. Does that really justify the bad press they still recieve?
