>TL;DR German if you can afford it.

America makes some of the best engines, but leaves cars with ancient suspension setup, and rather flimsy interior.

Japan makes great responsive cars that produce feedback feel like no other along with LSD's everywhere you look, but they leave most cars somewhat underpowered.

Germany makes maximum comfy cars with a range from decent to tons of power. These cars are both difficult to work on, and costly to maintain. German cars were made in Germany, land of tight and frequent emissions, they take care of their cars like children.

Beggers can't be choosers, automotive industries can only give you so much in a car before exceeding the cost that their target audience will be able to afford.
Hence the reason why german isn't and never will be cheap.

This board generally seems less than interested in automatic transmissions. I think all you can expect out of this thread is verbal abuse.

It's subjective depending on what your preference is in an automobile OP..

I can tell you who wins in general at existing, here's a hint...it's one of the countries that doesn't need an entire continent to compare to it; and the other country's greatest political ally(if you google it also) is this country.

American here, I agree with him.

"Of course you do, you're American"

No, but the British are especially the shittiest....at least we aren't shitty until you talk down to us publically, Americans have a problem of taking themselves too seriously; and that's about it.....unlike Russian youth having a game in which they throw feces, or German 13 year old middle school harems with "Progressive thinking" parents, but the British....everywhere they go you cannot please them, they are not happy; when they visit other countries...you wonder why they left Britain because the entire time you talk to them they are pointing out reasons why their inferiority complex of an island is somehow superior.

American cars are confused, german cars are sterile and clinical, french cars are hopeless, and the japanese know when to make a well built cheap ecobox or a good sportscar, depending on the economy and what people will actually buy.

Household italian brands seem to mostly have forgotten rear wheel drive. (looking at you alfa, and fiat) and still as unreliable as ever.

My vote goes to japan, honorable mentions to england and italy for having made most of the greatest cars ever

>>10833289

Jaguar is owned by indians

Lotus is owned by someone in asia

Mini, rover, RR and bentley is owned by nazis. Only cars left are really caterham and morgan tricycles.

British autos died at the millenium.

Compare the size of current models to mid-'90s ones. Even the A4 will achieve barge-status within the next couple of years.
