A car made in North America. Stereotyped to be large, ugly, slow, thirsty, poorly manufactured, terrible handling and shoddy. For the most part, this stereotype rings true. Just look at all the fanboys who defined corvette
. It is a really awful car with shit handling, nil suspension, dreadful ride, alcoholic consumption, abismal comfort level, but these jackasses seems to like cheap cars that go well in staright lines, because american road
s don't have corners.
Wow, 90K miles, isn't that a lot... /sarcasm
The cadillac has 99,995 miles on the clock. The scrap yard is six miles away, and I only have the energy to push it half a mile- see my dilema?
Something that no longer exists, and hasn't for a long time. Many of the cars produced "Big 3" (Chrysler is now owned by Italian company Fiat BTW, so it's really the big 2 now) are made in Mexico or other foreign nations, while Toyota, BMW, and other foreign car companies have plants in the U.S. Either way, the majority of the parts in the car come from Japan, China, and Korea anyway.
Chevy Owner: "Junk that Beemer
and BUY AN AMERICAN CAR!
BMW Owner: "That piece of shit Cobalt was made in Mexico, my 325i was made in South Carolina."
Also referred to as Domestic cars. These vehicles are not neccisarily bad (Ford Focus, Dodge SRT-4). American cars in general have lower build quality than thier European and Japanese counterparts. However, Amercian cars are catching up in build quality in order to be competitive with thier imported rivals.
I cannot understand why people just can't like both import and domestic cars. I think a Camaro is just as cool as a turbocharged honda civic. Both are cool. No one is better than the other. so can't you ricers and muscle-heads shut up?
A system of parts created in America in order to get from point A to Point B. In fact, its the least it can do; spend $35,000 on a chunk of steel that could fit a circus and takes more fuel to get to the corner grocer if compared to the amount of fuel needed to get to the moon.
Stay away from American cars. Mercedes-Benz was the first; I think by now you realize who knows how to engineer.
A can on four wheels.
look at that gay can on four wheels!
Quite possibly the worst cars ever made. They are generally, giant, loud, slow and have super soft suspension. They have giant V8 engines that make a lot of noise and aren't actually that fast, whether that be because they are poorly manufactured or because the car itself can weigh up to 5 tonnes.
The main companies making these shit-box cars are: GMC (who owns Buick,Cadillac,Chevrolet,GMC,Hummer,Pontiac,Saturn and Oldsmobile), Ford Motor Company (Who owns Ford, Lincoln and Mercury) and Chrysler (Who owns Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Plymouth, AMC and Eagle).
These major companies are years behind in their car output, in that they still seem to think it's a good idea to make large cars, even though basically every other reputable car company makes small cars, and often these small cars are the best-selling in the range. This is evident in that the best selling car in the US is the Toyota Camry.
American Cars are useless.
They were shit. Now they're the best cars available these days. Can make more power with less fuel and cost than their Asian and European counterparts, and also reliable. Contrary to beliefs, they can actually turn, in fact they're one of the best handling cars ever. Corvette
ZR1 and Dodge Viper
ACR are slower than Nissan GTR
, but they managed to smoke it on Nurburgring track by 20 buses length.
Chevy Volt > prius
> VW Golf
American cars are bigger, faster, more powerful, cooler, cheaper, less fuel drinker, and less rice than euro and azn cars.
Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta are one of the best selling cars in Europe.
Did you know that the newest Mustang Shelby GT500
makes 662 hp while still getting 24 mpg? Grab this car for less than 60 thousand bucks.
