Only within the past year has bancrupcy forced them to abandon their inherently flawed approach. Maybe their 2013 or later cars will have all-around excellence.
yup, the last american car i had experienced complete electronic failure 6 days brand new from the dealer... after tons of recalls and random breakdowns.. i'd never get another american car.. would rather have japanese for reliability or european for fun
