Matt, that was eons ago.
The number one selling cars in the United States are Japanese cars: Toyota and Honda.

Ford has ceased making cars (except for the mustang). Smart move since nobody in their right mind was buying that junk.

GM should scream "uncle" and also cease and desist from producing cars. Only reason Ford is better than GM is because GM cars are worse than junk. When you see a GM car on the road (and that includes the god-awful Cadillacs), nothing wrong feeling some pity for the ownwer of that abomination.

The rage is SUVs, so if you're buying one instead of a car note that you'll be paying a "popularity premium." And if you got no problem paying this premium, make sure it's either a Toyota or Honda.

Also remember that the smart buyers of Mercedes cars dump their cars after the 5-year warranty is up and get themselves a new one.

Worst SUV on the road that pretends to be a luxury vehicle?

The BMW X-5. Money pit... and that is putting it mildly.

German cars are overrated and overpriced.

Bringing inexpensive Chinese cars to the North American consumer is a sin.
