An AP-AOL Autos poll showed that Americans prefer foreign cars over American cars. Back in the days your first car was a trusty ten year old American made car. Now people feel that the Japanese are more reliable.
“In the poll, 44 percent said Japan makes the best autos, 29 percent said the United States and 15 percent said
Germany. Asked what car manufacturer makes the best autos, 25 percent said
Toyota, 21 percent said General Motors and 17 percent said Honda.”I don’t find this shocking, when I was in college my father would preach to me about the reliability of Japanese cars and they are the only way to go for older cars. Is it American cars just don’t age gracefully? Come to think about it, I have only owned foreign cars so I’m not sure how to compare, but this poll seems to say it all.
