Chrysler 300, saturn ion and ford fusion are some goodlooking eg of competitive cars.
But the big 3's image has been tarnished so bad by the media that even the good cars are not being taken by the consumers.
Last year when all the manufacturers submitted the data of cars sold and cars recalled. Toyota didnt give out the numbers. After the data was published the recall was done. It was never publicised in the media.
and here's a recent case
WTOL-TV Toledo, OH: Toyota: No comment on reports of no charges in recall probe

The tarnished bad image is due to poor reliability. I won't have to worry as much while buying a Honda Accord with 120K miles on it as much I'd have to worry about buying a Dodge Intrepid with 90K on it who knows when the auto tranny might fail and the cost to fix it would be equal to that of the car itself because it depreciated like a rock because it lacked quality and reliability in the first place (the FIRST POINT I MADE remeber whole circle completed right here.
