10 comments on “Automobiles: The Best and Worst of It

  1. In all my years of driving and owning cars, I have never heard one good thing about a Ford Escort. Not even one! Your article confirms I was wise to stay away from one.

  2. Dodge put in some great engines back in those days and even before the 1980’s. When I was a teenager in the 1970’s, I had a Roadrunner and that thing would fly down the road, had a great engine that just wouldn’t die. I wish I still had that car.

  3. The Ford Escort was replaced by the Ford Focus which is also regarded as a worthless piece of crap.

  4. I think I’ll keep buying Toyotas. Have never had a problem with the ones I’ve owned.

  5. I traded in my car but a bicycle a few years ago — best thing I ever did. Now I’m in better shape physically and saving money too. I don’t even look at gas prices anymore — don’t care.

  6. Ford = Fix Or Repair Daily. As for American cars, I’ve had good luck with Chrysler products; for foreign cars, it’s hard to go wrong with Hondas.

  7. I also like Hondas but you can’t hold on to them long. Like your old Dodge Aspen, they tend to turn into rust buckets.

  8. Where are you buying your Hondas, Vic? I’ve been driving them for years and I’ve never had a problem with rust.
