We visited a Ford factory at Hamiton Ontario and Honda factory at Kitchener last week. Their QC are very good..... I will say 96 to now, ford cars are very good. Japanese cars have some problems, too. There is a figure shows the problems in America cars is 22/100 and Japanese car is 16/100. But you can save 10,000 dollars to get a bigger american sedan with a powerful V6 engine than to a TOYOTA Cramy V6.
