hrmm forgot one...

I might have chosen different poll answer choices, the "one of their models appeals..." choice might have been better as " I'd consider one".

Then again, simple yes/no choices might have been more revealing.

The choices suck. Some are redundant, some are missing from the poll.

Anywho, looks like I'm the only one absolutely willing to own an Asian branded vehicle. Har har. :P

I stand corrected. Someone else voted after me.

My vote is "I'd consider one, but not in the market currently" for Euro and Asian.

Euro/Asian cars I'd consider:

Mazda RX8

Subaru Legacy GT

Subaru SVX

Volkswagen Pheaton

Audi A6 or A8

Alfa 159 <actually, just about any Alfa>

Peugot 407 coupe

Most of the Citroens

Ones where I'm not sure how to count them:

Opel Astra Twintop

Opel Vectra

Jaguar XJ

Saab 9-3 Cabrio or Combi

and "Absolutely, own one, and happy with that decision, willing to do it again" for domestic.

I'm confused by this poll? What if I drove a Pontiac Vibe, would that be Asian or American. What if I drove an Opel, would that be European or American, what if (God Forbid) I drove a Holden, is that Australian or American? GM is a multi-national corporation and this poll does not factor that in to it.

Bad Choices, my answer didn't fit into any, except for domestic, Absolutely, own one, and happy with that decision, willing to do it again, since that is what I own. I would consider a select few Japanese cars, mostly only Nissan/Infinitis or certain Mazdas.

For European, I would definately consider a lot of them except VW, but I don't own one, so my answer wasn't there.

Absolutely for domestic, never for Asian (nothing they currently make appeals to me and I doubt anything ever from Asia will appeal to me), and the European cars I like are certainly not in my price range.

okay okay i get it... I F-ed it up

but can we all come up with a poll that would try to figure out this boards affiliation...? because obviously there are some anti foreign people, and anti this or that.... but it would be interesting at least to me...

especially after reading that article about how only like 3% of americans refuse to consider an asian car

The trouble you're going to get into with this is how you count certain brands.

Are Mazda/Land Rover/Jaguar/Volvo/Saab foreign or domestic?

What about imported Pontiacs or Saturns?

I'm going to live in Germany next year. If I buy an Opel, am I buying domestic <Germany> or am I buying domestic <US>?

I think this thread should be resubmitted with better choices...like "I'd consider one"

After all, while I mainly like domestics, I'd consider anything that appeals to me...Like a GTR :D

Maybe you should break it down into brands.

What Fly said above is basically where I stand as well.

I'll own just about any domestic brand (except maybe Saturn), I will never own a Japanese car, and as far as European goes...I'm really only interested in Itallian sports cars and British ultra luxury cars. No V-Dubs for me.

I'd rather kiss a girl than buy a Japanese vehicle! But, yeah, I do realize I am driving a Korean made vehicle, if only partially owned and marketted by GM.

You talking about cars or a wife? I'm so confused! :scratchchin:

Cars. As far as wives go, blue/green eyes = :drool:

But you knew that already :AH-HA_wink:

No prejudice or brand loyality here...I've owned domestic (Ford, Chevy, Jeep) and European (BMW)....I'd consider domestic again (Ford, Cadillac, Jeep), and there are several models from Japanese makes I'd consider (Acura, Infiniti)...though I likely wouldn't consider Korean (Hyundai and Kia are at the cheap and nasty end of the spectrum, IMHO).

I know, you're looking for a Herty Gerty Swedish girl who drives a Saab, should be easy to find a million of them in Portugal! :rotflmao: I'm going to Iceland soon, you want me to look there? :scratchchin:

She doesn't have to be Swedish, she just needs to have blue or green eyes :drool:

As for the Saab thing, that's definitely on the find-a-girl shortlist :P
