    Love America but Own European


    Ill make this short and sweet. I have had 4 cars. 2 of them American made and 2 of them non American.


    Every car I have ever owned that was American made consistently broke down on me, costing me thousands of dollars in repairs. It made me lose faith in buying American.


    I have owned a Mercedes Benz since 01 and in 8 years the only thing I have ever had to change was the tires and filter. That says alot about a car.


    I also paid just as much for my mercedes brand new as I would have if I bought an American made car for the same price.


    My Mercedes has been since paid off, im not wealthy by any means. I made payments, paid it off in 5 years, and I feel that in all the money I probably saved with my European Car by not having to repair it constantly, I have saved enough to travel and do all the things I enjoy.
