A Nissan Altima has more american made parts than a Ford F150.
I read that report recently, now I cant find it.

As does a Honda shadow over a Harley Davidson... Genuine HD parts made in Germany and Japan.

The sport edition Toyota Camry. 33+ mpg and will run forever. Holds resale value better than any Ford and more reliable than any Nissan. They don't break, like ever.

Hey, Hey... I am on my third Nissan, and I have yet to EVER spend one dollar on any repairs.
I own a Nissan Altima 2013 , ,get 38-40 mpg on hwy, avg 35-36 running around, ( its the trans)
had it 1 year , not a single problem.

I wouldnt be surprised if its voted Car of the Year.

Toyotas are great cars , but there is no reason to knock Nissan.

If you are seriously looking at new cars, you need to look at new car dealers, too. Whatever car you decide to buy, you are going to have to get along with the dealer. Do your research. How are they ranked for repairs. Do they do it right the first time? Is the shop clean? Your state department of motor vehicles may have a list of upheld complaints against a dealer, too. Check with them.

Regarding the Kia Optima. My daughter got one for a loaner when her car was in the shop. She loved it. I didn't drive it, but the trim level was very impressive, and it passed the butt test. To do the butt test you have to flop down in the seat. If your bottom bottoms out from lack of padding, it will be very uncomfortable on a trip.

I'm gonna suggest my car which you might be able to find for around 30 now. It's a 2008 Audi S4. V8 power at 340 horses out of a 4.2L, all wheel drive, Audi safety, great interior, and one of the best handling cars I've driven. We got it for 40k with 15k miles back in February 2011. Only down side is the gas mileage isn't the best ever..
