Not sure I know either, I just happened to be grazing over it and I thought it to be remotely relevant to the whole American VS. Euro thing and so up it went.

Lot of ignorance in this statement. I'm pretty sure there are Americans working in Nissan, Honda, and Toyota factories in the United States.

I had a BMW 3 series in HS (given to me by my grandpa) and OMG....worst car ever! It could have been because it was just a lemon but wow...I'll never buy another BMW.

BMW's/MBZ's/Audi's are special cars in that their buyers understand and forgive the fact that these cars will break often. They are amazing cars while they are working and many people generally buy new or within the warranty period and then sell them as soon as the warranty runs out. I will never own any of these makes as a used car, which means that I'll never own them at all because I always buy used to let the new car buyers eat the first year losses.

LOL, sure. They are great as long as you're covered under warranty. Unless you are a good mechanic I wouldn't own one once the warranty expires.
