I agree - the Cadillac line of cars would definitely be worth buying. I have always driven American cars but can see why many have chosen not to for some time now. For so long, SO MANY American cars have been of inferior quality (reliability, lifespan, mileage) when compared to foreign cars such as the Toyota Camry/Honda Accord. This is a basic instinct thing: people are going to buy what will LAST regardless of who makes it.

American car manufacturers need to improve the quality of what they produce and do it at a REASONABLE PRICE - don't jack the prices up just to compensate for possibly unreasonably high wages the UAW won't budge on or CEO bonuses.

I believe the Camaro is bringing the quality back to the American car, that's why I will be buying one once the convertible comes out.
