;Good luck buying anew car that's all built in the U.S., parts come from all over the world, I have to buy what I need, not what some "Info Article" recomends. Slightly less than useless.

I have a Lexus LS, a Z06 Corvette, a Z71 Suburban, several pickup trucks, and a great recliner.

On my best days I drive the Vette, on my worst, I sit in my recliner.  Everything else in in-between.

I can say that a 600 mile trip in a Z06 absolutely sucks and it takes a couple days to recover.

On long trips the Suburban is by far the best.

I have a Miata since 1999 and it is perfect for me.  It supports my back and handles delightfully.

Older people have free time and money. We don't need SUVs, station wagons, and four door sedans. We don't haul kids. Maybe grandkids occasionally. Give us performance or performance/luxury, we can afford it now. Audi R8, Porsche, BMW M series, Mercedes AMG, to name a few. I drive a modded MINI JCW and may get an R8 also. Worked all my life, saved money, can't take it with me, so I want to enjoy it while I can. Kia my A$$. There are too many cool cars that I can have, hard to choose, but the ten you listed are not in the ball park.

It is stupid to say this car is better because it's American or that one is because it's foreign. You can buy identical cars from the same manufacturer, maintain and drive them the same way and one could be the best car you've ever driven and the other the worst piece of junk you've ever owned. I've driven both, foreign and domestic that fit into both categories. Why can the same vehicle come out different than the other? Who knows, but it happens. Which car is best? The one that suits your needs and costs the least to own.

None of these address the rear-vision or the driver's eye level above the headlight glare some older drivers experience.

If it wasn't for the Japanese and Foreign automakers OUR AMERICAN cars would "Still" be krap!

The Japanese and Foreign cars "Forced" Detroit into "finally" building better automobiles.

We should be thanking them instead of berating them with disrespectful racist overtone comments.

Come on America, don't you think being a little more respectful "Is a better idea"?

How about some affordable models that AREN'T variations on hatchbacks and station wagons?  I won't even consider a car that doesn't provide "out of sight" storage.
