Thumbs down This just in DODGE sucks

http://autos.yahoo.com/articles/autos_content_landing_pages/310/the-years-poorest-performing-cars;_ylc=X3oDMTE4dWdic2RvBF9TAzI3MTYxNDkEc2VjA2Zw LXRvZGF5BHNsawNwb29yLXBlcmZvcm0-

Dodge has the top 5 out of 10 cars in the Poorest Performing Cars category

As an American Car Industry (not cars) fan, I am happy to see GM get their act together....Dodge / Ford, you guys have some work to do.

I am not a car snob but I do not understand why anyone would buy a Chrysler Sebring.

Name one redeeming feature.

My country's (and that of the US) economy depends on how well the "Big" 3 do. So I hope they kick the snot out of the Japanese / Korean car companies.

I will stay German.

GM started making decent cars that can actually take on the Japanese and Germans. The Buick Enclave is winning praise. The CTS has also won praise. They are finally putting good interiors in their products(look at the CTS, Malibu, Enclave, Tahoe). Ford is starting to get it while Chrysler doesn't get it and is going, " Why aren't we selling more cars? :"

Here's one - it looks like a MB C-class. Maybe not so much in that photo, but a quick glance on the road, and I've mistaken it for the new C-class before.

Or maybe I just need my prescription updated.

With the direction Hyundai is headed in, that's not saying much.
