uh... I guess I just don't see it?

Some of this Camry bashing is mean. I had a 1988 Camry DLX before my Bonneville, and the car was very dependable. The only problems I ever had were just flukes (spark plug tip broke off and bounced around the engine) or old age (the tranny finally died after about 150,000 miles on it, and those high performance tranny'* are expensive to fix).

Of course it'* just scrap metal next to my new Bonneville, but it was a nice car for the time I had it (highschool car).

Now on to the bashing. I can't stand almost anything made by Mitsubishi, especially before 1996. Dodge is also something I don't even ride in. I have never known someone who had a dodge that didn't have ALOT of problems with their car. Their V6 is a joke in power and dependability.

Anything that is customized poorly. If you just do a shoddy cheap job on customizing your car, you just need to be punished.

Well, since this is the car bashing thread,




I personally feel the 2000+ interior is a disaster

I wish they didn't use so many shades of grey, and that it was a little less platic, but I wouldn't call it a "disaster".

Yes, I was trying to get myself hurt. I like the GA, but not a fan of the SE. GT is nice, but I don't like the 3.4.

There is however one GA that I would LOVE to own by me... It turns the right wheels... with an LS1....

definitely gotta agree with Custom88 on the interior part... our interiors are pretty beat compared to his, at least in my opinion...



i would also like to take the time to bash the crap out of GM. the '05s are up to like $35k while the mustang gt is at around $25k and is barely .2 slower. also looks like a million bucks compared to the gto'* bland *** (sorry felt the need to say the "a" word) grand prix/sunflower looking body
