Im going to speak for myself. I said that i hate American cars, cause they'r big, ugly, with V8 5lt, 6lt that produce 250 bhp . But what I really cant understand is why the Americans get so excited with trucks... Take the Dodge SRT, or the Ford Lightning... Totally useless... But then again, Im a European and its very hard for me (an all europeans i quess) to understand American taste...

And this is why you're opinion is wrong. I'ts based on non factual information.

1) Not all american cars are big. OTOH, we don't live an a country the size of a postage stamp, with 1000 year old cities that have streets barely wide enough to walk on, so it really doesn't matter.

2) Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. But most of them aren't any more ugly than cars from anywhere else.

3) Most dont' have V8s. I4s and V6s are much more common anymore,and have been for years. In fact, all three cars I've bought new have been American, and none of them had V8s.

4) if the V8 makes 250hp, it usually also makes 280-350 lb ft of torque. You are of the mistaken impression that hp/liter actually means anything outside of a racing class that requires a fixed displacement, or a country that taxes cars BASED on displacement. In both of THOSE situations, a smaller engine with maximised power output is dsireable (though for very different reasons).

In a street car, however, making a wider powerband with more low end torque, in an engine that is lower stressed, less complex, and less expensive to build, repair, or maintain, is a better engineering solution.

Of course there r some american cars that I like. But they r xtremely limited. Still, I m going to stick to my opinion, cause its my personal opinion, and say that American cars suck... I have to admit though, that I havent driven any american car...Perhaps when i do drive one, i may change my mind in some matters, such as the engine. But as far as the looks, stability, driving pleasure is concerned, u dont stand a chance against the Europeans. Childish? Perhaps... But nevertheless 100% true.
