Nice. I think everyone but the die-hard american car lover knows that American cars are not what they used to be. Maybe back when owning a Ford meant something it would have been a bit different, but now Euro and Asian car makers are on top.

Proof is in the headlines these days...

Why didn't they use the H1 or any other vehicle for the off-road test? The Escalade for off-roading! Come on.. This was all bullshit. The H2? Jesus.. British people are stupid :P

The mustang could have won if he didn't get the back out from underhim

Neither did I understand the water filling thing..

american cars are leaps and bounds better than they used to be :what:
they are more reliable and better constructed than ever before.
the problem they are having is overcoming their old image

a lot of american cars do suck just poor quality all around. I dont get y they put out so much heat. A lil off topic but my friend got a mazda6 for a rental and we went to the store 3miles away and when we stopped to get out of the car there was so much heat coming from under the car and it wasnt even overheating. His 03 buick regal did it too and his old mercury grand marquis. Yeah those tests were rigged pretty bad i mean an escalade in an off road test?? wtf! y not on off road version of the tahoe. Made it pretty obvious he doesnt like americans, pretty uncalled for and irrelevant to cars. It was kinda funny how he was comparing the sound of an old carbed v8 to somethin in a new european v8. Anybody with any sense and half a brain would pick up on his cheapshots and pettyness so its just gonna hurt his credability.....that mustang vs the lotus was a joke. Mustangs handle like shit and are really just meant to go fast in a straight line, Ex. at the track or on the streets. Pls dont argue with me on the mustangs handling its obvious handling wasnt somethin givin much though when they designed it. The water thing was just stupid what was that supposed to prove, that door seals suck in a lincoln after 18yrs?

the mustang just doesnt have the suspension for tight high speed cornering... especially downhill
even in america the mustang is known solely for it's straight line performance, there were much better alternatives to take on that lotus.... which is primarily japanese btw
