Cars Cars Cars and one Jag

August 18th, 2011

I’ve been in Texas (Dallas) now for 5 + years and my experiance with cars here has changed the way I view cars.
I’ll start with all  most rice burners (Japanese cars) are worthless! why worthless do I say? ok they arent worthless..
I simply think if you live in the US and you want to support the US economy why should you buy a rice burner when you have better options.
Back in the day (December of 2007) I went in a got a brand new (new body style) 08 Camry LE  my regret was that I listened to all the people who recommended getting a toyota/honda as I’ve owened a few american cars since then.
What’s my beef with the Camry/Toyota/Cars from Japan?
* Price is too high for what you get
* Gas Mileage is not that amazing compared to other cars (I did 24mpg with the V8 Merc combined and the same with a 2.4L Camry)
* Reliability is not better then other American/Euro/Korean cars
* Parts are EXPENSIVE for Japanese cars (When comparing to American not European)
* They (most of them, not the high end) are tin cars
* Not comfortable ride
The list is longer but that’s the major points….

Now y’all can say I got lucky but that’s simply not true as my experience with two rice burners is limited to an older accord and a brand new Camry while my american experience is limited to a Merc (not Mercedes) Grand Marquis and a 5.7 HEMI Jeep Commander.


Instead of the mid level Camry I should have gotten a new V6 loaded Malibu or a Charger (didn’t like the interior) or even get a Ford Fusion (that should have been the right choice) but regardless that’s not the point here.

Now I own a nice Supercharged Jaguar XJR (after my old Merc got totaled by the elements of the weather) and I still miss that old Merc… It ran for 150k miles and would run for another 100k miles without issues or complaints.

hmmm now after reading what I’ve wrote this is truly a post about nothing.

Bottom line if you live in the US buy american cars! the parts are cheaper and they have more bang for the buck (and now the buck ain’t worth that much).
So if you buy/lease a brand new car every three years that has a bumper to bumper warranty there no point of getting a Japanese car you might hold on to a car for five years and if that’s the case go with Hyundai/KIA who have made a MAJOR jump with their cars over the past few year.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on American or non american cars

Best Full Size Sedan Ever!!!

August 8th, 2011

Well it’s my title and this post is a IMO…

I’ve owened some good cars and some bad cars through the years.
Some very bad while living in Israel (mostly french cars) and some just vanilla (Mazda…) but after moving to the US and traveling every other week I had a chance to rent most Rice Burners and Amaerican cars in the past few years.

Let’s start with the new Toyota Camry.
I bought a brand new one in 2008 and regretfully I have to report that I regret buying that car.
IMO Toyota, Honda, Nissan and other rice burners (let’s put Lexus, Infinity and maybe Acura on the side for now) are too expensive for what you get from the car!
When buying a brand new car and replacing it every 3 odd years I must say I would never ever buy another Jap car again.
At this point in time in the US Hyundai and Kia have much more value for money and have full 5 year warranty.

But let’s get back to the title.
My best full size Sedan would be The (well three of them but they are the same car) Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis and the Lincoln Towncar.
Why am I saying so now that I don’t own one anymore?
I just landed in NC and I recived a crown vic from the rental company and I started missing my old Grand Marquis.
It has a great V8 that does 22MPG city and 30+ MPG highway, the car is built like a tank, it will run forever, it’s comftrable and if you get one in white everyone moves out of your way.

I had my Merc for 3+ years and I put 50K miles on it without anything! yes anything (except for two things I broke so I can’t blame the car) breaking on it, I gave it back to the insurance company with 145K miles and it would run for at least another 150K miles

Now you might say hey now he drives a Rice burner but that isn’t the fact, today I drive a Supercharged Jaguar  XJR which I love but would go back to an american car in a heart beat.
As you live in the US I say buy american!

So FORD, bring back the Marauder and make it look like this!
