I'm pretty sure that the car "enthusiasts" on this board will obviously disagree, but its the truth. 90's Pontiac engines were garbage(I don't care what you say). Interiors on many GM cars had weak control knobs and upholstery. Ford had very weak car offerings with many of the same flaws as the GM cars, though their engines had a different problem than the GMs.

I watched my family blow through 9 or so domestic cars over the past 10 years. But my 89' Honda is still kicking till this day. Yes I know, driving habits and blah, blah, blah. But I know the way they drive and I knew how often they maintained the crap. Things didn't add up period.

But anyway, "domestic" car makers(If you can even call them that anymore) have to work themselves out of the hole that they dug so many years back.
I am not very sure about posting in this old thread but getting old cars is my passion as well as problem. I have been cheated many a times but still I do have good collection of old cars... You are absolutely right. It is very hard to find everything in nice condition in these old cars so we need to make lots of effort in maintenance.. Sorry again
