    How is this anything but good news for the US automakers? What demand there is will go toward cheaper better US made cars instead of the cheap cr@p we’ve been conditioned to believe is “the good stuff” from Japan. I’d be checking any car I got from Japan for water damage too…

After seeing the lastest in foreing car issues, one wonders how they will ever rise again. CHEAP INDEED>>> now water damaged and potentiall worse issues.
