Just what happened to Daimler and Chrysler, Daimler thought they could
boot-strap Chrysler into a maker of reliable cars for the American
market, instead Chrysler pulled Daimler down to it's level, now after a
messy divorce, Daimler's reliability is seriously in question and
they're having to through a lot of money at building reliability and
prestige again.

Yes.  Mind control and flouridated water are terrible when used for
destructive purposes.
Even when the source is a relatively small production line in
California, the tenacles of evil can rapidly spread, encompassing the
earth in a surprisingly short time.
I recommend bringing all water to a rapid boil for at least 3 minutes,
and the wearing of a tin-foil cap when near strangers.
A 2000 mile check of precious bodily fluids is also a good precaution.

You really don't know much except a bunch of smart-ass retorts, do you?

Well, I know that you're a Toyota fanboy who can't mention Toyota's
current problems without bringing up 30 year old GM cars like the Vega,
the Citation, etc.
And I know that you are so far gone as a fanboy that you even affect a
Japaneses name.  Tin hat territory, fella.  Stems from fanaticism.
I know that.
so there.
BTW, I only read the tech group, so perhaps I'm just not accustomed to
the fanboy wackyism spillover from the Toy groups.
But it's no big deal.  Usenet is a refuge for wackos.

I could pick on some newer ones as well. Cobalt, perhaps? Warmed-over
Cavalier but with a new set of problems? Check it out, owners are so
unhappy the lots are almost giving them away to get rid of them.

HHR? Base 4 cylinder and AT that can't get out of it's own way?
TRY to find one with the 172HP and a 5-speed. Nearest one to me was 2,500
miles away.

"Japanese name"? Know what a "hachiroku" is? Thought not.

That's because our cars have treated us so well over the years. Fanboi?
Perhaps. I've only had about 12 of them. Not a bad one in the bunch,
either. Why they don't even develop the kinds of problems most cars do at
100,000 at 175,000 or even 225,000 miles. Or more.

And if 'you're not used to it', don't respond. Nobody says you have to.
But this is usenet, and that's why almost all news readers have Bozo Bins.
You can roll around with the few morons in there that have nothing to say,
but need to say it anyway. And why is there a whistling noise attached
with all your posts?

HINT: Put some cotton balls in your ears...
