AND also AMerican cars have to be the worst cars i have ever driven. The windows clunk when you shut them, the interiors are cheap and tacky, most of the cars look like s**t, the majority of cars are dreadfully slow and have no chance in rivalling against there European competitors, the Automatic transmissions in the cars are lowsy and jump gears, they cannot turn corners, and other many things.

I will give the americans one thing though which is that your cars have the best names in the world. For example charger, mustang, cobra, shelby, and so on. In the UK we hold names like the vectra, the signum, the corsa, the astra, the fiesta and so on.

Wow. You really know your cars! What standard catalogue of stereotypes is next? Japanese cars have no soul is a thought.

PS Your CLS has too small an engine.

Well Well Well Shane i am sorry to put you down , although the thread was not directed to you. I am relating to the standards of Jeremy Clarkson who said exactly what i QUOTED on the thread, and if you are going to get upset over that then thats fine.

I can admit that the cars of the U.K are total shit, and dont say that britain have Aston Martins, Bentleys and so on. All of these have been undertaken by either the americans or the Germans (not complaining!!!!) As you would know of course.

My CLS, okay i guess you have a point with relation to the engine being to small, although american cars are full of huge engines that cant doo anything, a prime example is the Chrysler 300c. My DIESEL is a far more reliable and faster car than that.


Sorry i am only quoting words from "Jeremy Clarkson" so dont pull a grasp neck on me!!
