    All their cars are either/or too tipsy, too heavy, too expensive, too
    unreliable, too hard to fix, too outdated.

    How much are we going to have to pay or how long do we have to wait
    for automatics that don't creep? For systems that are truly failsafe?
    For components designed for efficient repair or replacement?

    The old problems keep coming with the new models. You already know
    the old: head gaskets that fail, timing belt problems, and fuel pumps
    leading the very long list of complaints.

    Here's something NEW to sit and ponder over. To keep interest up in
    the lastest Crapmobile, designers have to keep coming up with new
    gimmicks to peddle. In the past, these gimmicks have been mostly
    nuscisances, like tail fins that do nothing worse than add weight,
    help weathercock the car into crosswinds, and impale daydreaming kids
    on bikes. The latest gimmick WILL KILL YOU! Its the "high
    performance" extra low profile tires (-40's). These suckers will
    hydroplane you to oblivion at speeds as low as 45 mph. To some, they
    look "cool". To me they look like the stupid car is driving on the
    rims. Bet Chrysler doesn't warranty those expensive rims (and tires)
    when you bend one on a pothole that an ordinary tire would just
    rebound over. Even if you don't visibly damage rim or tire, who's to
    guarantee that the tire isn't "bruised" and dramatically weakened by a
    road hazard we have learned from past experience to brush off as a
    mere bump in the road. For your own sake and that of your family's DO

  3. User error!! If you get low profile tires you better read your owners manual.
    They are high performance tires and trade off some comfort for dry grip. They
    are more vulnerable to damage when you hit a bump, but if you are paying
    attention you can avoid most potetially damaging bumps. If you do damage your
    tire, it is obvious. You will see a bulge in the sidewall. If you the type of
    driver who does not pay attention to the road when you drive, then you should
    not get this type of tire. No one forced you to get the tires, so stop
