I have a hard time believing every car flop is American made. I can think of a few foreign flops right now!


And to the environmental groups voicing concerns about the Excursions... Here's to you They're just angry because it was actually a useful vehicle that could dominate their little hybrids!

What a load of crap. "the environmentalist group says" "only gets 12mpg"

The environmentalist group that says that is a joke, and 12mpg must be refering to the V10.
