Do Jewish people have a problem with German autos?

I live in a highly diverse community and am fortunate to have friends of a wide variety of racial backgrounds.

I've observed a number of my Jewish friends to predominantly drive Lexus sedans and SUVs. My other White, Asian, Latino and Black friends of different races seem to prefer BMWs, Mercedes and VW.

Given all of the history between Jews and Germany, is there an unsaid preference toward non-German luxury cars or am I just projecting patterns where there aren't any?

I've test-driven a number of Lexus models and I don't see a whole lot of rational reasons to choose a Lexus over a BMW or Mercedes.

Reliability is a pretty rational reason and one that many value. As well as very low maintenance costs.

Jews have an innate fear of powerful Germans.

If you couldn't read english and saw everyone stopping at a stop sign... what would you assume it meant?

Now, employ that same logic to your question... and Voila!

Sooo now that it is settled....

I've got a better one...

Does anyone know any jews that drive large gas-guzzling pickup trucks? I've sure as hell never met one.

Lots of Jewish people in my area and plenty of them drive German cars. WWII ended almost 67 years ago.

Sorry, I know the question was asked in earnest, but this thread and topic is inevitably headed towards being trolled or argued over.
