Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

There have been some really seismic shifts in cars in recent years. 20 years ago I would have taken a Saab or Volvo with 100K miles over any new American car. Not any more. European cars seem to be maintenance nightmares as they get a few miles on them. I looked at a Mercedes 300GLC? (their midsized SUV)and they charge $330 for every 10K service to 40K. On my Jeep it's been $42 every 8,000. On top of that they seem to need a lot expensive routine maintenance. On my Jeep all the major service items are 100,000 plus. The thing that really amazes me is how cheap and plasticy European cars have gotten. I was at an auto show a couple of weeks ago and got to sit in a lot of cars. I sat in a top of the line Land Rover (and I like Land Rovers) and was surprised how cheap the interior felt. The same was true for a BMW X3, several Audis and Volvos. The Stevio was better but still plasticy in spots. On the other hand, two cars (that I've also driven) that were head and shoulders above any of them were the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Chevy/GM Acadia/Traverse. They both have a very high quality feel. Also a number of Japanese cars (Pilot, Four Runner, Acuras) were better than the Europeans. Obviously this is completely contrary to what most of us have believed for many years. The only thing I can say is that if you're looking for a new car, you might want to look at some cars you wouldn't have considered a few years ago.
