You've probably heard about the latest Consumer Reports survey which found, yet again, that American cars represent superior reliability when compared to their European counterparts.

From the Detroit News

In spite of that, you always hear the tired cliche's about "American junk" from the arrogant wing of the European car crowd, which is why this particular quote from the article is so sweet...

Chrysler's European partner, Mercedes-Benz, slipped in the Consumer Reports reliability survey, as did European brands Audi, Jaguar, Volkswagen and Land Rover. Only Saab, owned by GM, and Volvo, owned by Ford, were in the top ranks for reliability.
...did you get that? The only European brands that score well for reliability are those that are owned by GM and Ford! You gotta love it!! :lol:

...unfortunately, the CTS didn't do too well, but don't tell anyone... :eatarrow:

How far can Jaguar slip? Isn't the essence of a Saturday Morning Mechanic an owner of an MG or Triumph? Ohhhh, Mercedes with those black meatballs regarding realibility.

Even when there is good news the media slags GM referring to the Regal as a rental car only. Check out the news on autoweek's site. Too bad because it is much better looking than the Camry and Accord which Autoweek compares it too.

ah- the looks are a matter of opinion... I still find the car attractive, but the styling is getting a little dated.
