Further proof that you are a simple minded moron. Neither are better or worse across the board. Now if you wanted to compare two specific cars under a specific set of criteria, you could determine a better car for a certain use. Otherwise, you're just blowing smoke out your ass.

Did you not read anything hobo said?....You cant possibly ask us what country makes the better car because there simply isn't an answer. Yes, people can prefer certain cars in gerneral, but asking them to chose a contry's cars and compare them is to broad a request!

There are things wrong with all different type of cars. Whether they are American, Japanese, Italian, German, Swedish, whatever. Some things I can point out in the American category are, one, the GM Quad 4 motor, two, the early Ford 2.3L, and the GM LS1 motors' tendency to spin bearings.

Japanese cars arent without their faults either. Most Mitsubishi 2.0L DOHC engines they put in the Eclipses and Talons wont live past 120K without blowing a head gasket or overheating for some reason or another.

You can always find something wrong with any car. I, for one, prefer some American cars to Japanese, and some Japanese to American. It doesnt really matter to me. I just look at it as a love for cars and thats that.

Jap cars are--in general--more reliable and have better fit and finish. American cars are--in general--more powerful and just freaking cooler. It depends on what you want in a car. Hondas are really the only Jap cars with any power at all, all the other ones are awful. If you want a car that runs for 300,000, a honda or a toyota is where to go. If you want a car that burns rubber and is just freaking cool ... get a dodge.
