>>Been driving and riding without it until now. Since I wanted to insure the 6000 I had to get the license.

When I saw this my first thought was "geez, where does he live -- Saskatchewan ?"

I was close

Nah, I've never been in a car that was pulled over for any reason at all in Manitoba... ever.

I've spent what, about 3 weeks of my life in Saskatchewan, and been in cars that were pulled over twice... in SK, one headlight out is cause for a warning... both have to be out and you have to mow down at least 3 pedestrians for an MB cop to pull you over.

I found this chart in this Consumer Reports article. What's far more interesting to me than the debate over American vs. Japanese is the fact that BMW and Mercedes do so poorly. Jags have always been spotty, but I guess I would have expected better from German engineering.

"Building Down to a Profit" is catching on in some industries. Don't know if it applies here.

The German cars are right down there with the American ones. The Japanese cars are the only ones that do well as far as reliability.

Yea those Contours are oddly fun to drive. I have a 99' Sport as well. They just need some good tires and they handle real nifty. My wife is driving it now. I am in a 04' Murano, the Contour is more fun, go figure. I have had

77 Cutlass Supreme Brougham
79 Crown Vic
85 Dodge Ram
85 Good Times Van (Ford)
90 Prelude
2002 Jetta
2000 Beetle
2001 Stratus
2003 Neon
96 Beetle---the old style in Mexico They just stopped making them this year, scary brakes but a cool ride
Iliked the Cutlass Prelude Contour and Murano, the others were either junkers or just a cheap ride.

"The German cars are right down there with the American ones. The Japanese cars are the only ones that do well as far as reliability."

At least BMW *seems* to be doing something to remedy their problems, it looks as though the third model year has far less troubles than both the second and first years. That's a good sign. Actually my wife owned a little 318i back in the late ninties and other than me thinking it was cramped and didn't have much power it really was a very solid car.
We've got a couple close neighbors with BMWs, one has an M3 and the other has a 330. Both were in the shop a couple of times right after being purchased but after the bugs have been worked out both seem to be happy owners after a year or so....that is until the women who owns the 330 was rear-ended by another woman driving a Dodge 2500 4x4 a couple of weeks back. The Bimmer just didn't fare too well in that little ordeal!

RE: Yugo...I rented a Yugo for 10 bucks with my airline discount in Salt Lake City during a ski weekend. Needless to say, I'm the *&^%#@!) that held up the line to Alta that weekend in '87.

04 sunfire were identical execpt 1 was manual trans, the other auto trans. .. they wasn't from same assembly plan, 1 form mexico (man trans) the other from Ohio.

I can tell you that the one assembled in Ohio has mush quality then the Mexico one.

My actual Mercedes B-200 is basicly my first import car and i enjoy it !!!!
