gm cars =
euro ford is good to see!

North Americans need to accept the fact that our cars are not modern enough... they are too big, use too much gas and are too cheaply made. There's a reason why our auto industry is in so much trouble, plus all the best selling N American cars are usually made by Asian car manufactures anyways.

To be fair, those are the reasons American cars gain so much ground in the 80-90s. The just didnt build on their success while other players caught up

I like the Regal GS! It's a Opel Insignia with a 2.0T Di engine + 6spd manual!

yeah I agree, but mass production just isn't feasible anymore. It used to be that overseas factories produced products that were cheap and inferior in quality to similar products manufactured in north america, the only benefit was cheap labour. But now the quality of mass production coming out of countries like japan, taiwan, korea, and china can be just as good as the products manufactured here but they still have cheaper labour, not to mention that their mass production practices are more efficient. if N American auto manufatures are to survive they will either have to be bought by euro and asian manufacturers or completely refine not only their manufacturing practices but the cars we manufacture.
