    If they don't like a car, they tell you to stay away. I don't think I have ever seen an american car magazine give a fully negative review of a car. The car company would never give them a car to review ever again.

    The Mexican car magazines, at least 4 Ruedas, always say glowing things about the cars but they also have positives and negatives about the car.
    Actually the 'Vette is pretty well designed, Chevy had to go cheap on a couple of things that make little squeaks and noises here and there but where it counts the car is solid. No other arguments with this.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    They ripped the Viper pretty badly, sure they are fair at the end but they start with a pretty bad bias, at least the stuff I've seen.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    The Viper is a suicide machine.

    If you are rich and want to kill yourself, that is the way to do it.

    Yes it did, it never worked worth a damn and that's Ford's fault. In fact, he bought the GT twice and twice, it was horribly unreliable. Richard Hammond, on the other hand, is a huge fan of American classic muscle cars and last I knew, owned a 1968 Ford Mustang 390 GT. As for James May, I don't know that Captain Slow has ever owned an American car, he tends to go for slower classic British cars.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Which is why they're now making the Countryman and Clubman vehicles. The Countryman is a 4-door family vehicle. They're slowly moving toward a more mainstream selection.

    I use it for when I get the urge to drive while stoned or drunk. The golf course at the country club is my international waters.

    And I'm betting they'll still be expecting far too much for them.

    Eh, if you can't drive well whatsoever it'll kill you. It drives like a damn hammer but has tons of power.

    That is my point. They don't offer a drving class with the purchase of the car.

    When I was buying crashed cars, every one I saw was broken in half. Never did I see one with front end damage or anything like that, always broken in 2.
