Cant be much worse then what we've got now. Quality went out the window in the 70's. Every part has a expiration date now. Like it or not thats the way it is now.

:thumbsup:

Made me think of my wifes old Ford Taurus, the head gasket went bad on it. Apparently that is very common in that era of V6's. Of course Ford won't do a recall or anything so if your car is not under warrenty it's about $3k to repair.

The idea of a vehicle falling apart, I don't trust American cars anymore... :flowers:

I was at a LAN party and one of my friends mentioned that about some V6's. I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu and he said something about all 3100 V6's were made out of Toronto at the time and had the gasket problem. Of course he referred me to a "friend" who could fix the whole ordeal for only $400... Some random person he "knew down the street."

I just acquired a Chinese made 250cc scooter for the "fun of it".
Inexpensive compared to other manufacturers of similar.
Fit, finish, assembly is quite good.
2,000 miles on it with no problems at all.

If they can build their little cars with the same attention to detail I've found on this scooter - I'd buy one just for the "fun of it."
I'd prefer a hybrid of course.

//Update: Just watching the news. The USA has banned importation of Chinese Shrimp due to contamination. Argh!
The only easy day was yesterday.
