a tyre blowing flat has nothing to with the make of the car ...blowouts can happen in a jap make , european make or an american make ..
i didnt like american cars much either ..but i think this dislike for american cars is more of a stereotype ...
there really are some very good looking american cars ...(transams , grandprixs , mustangs
they have a class of their own .. i am somehow begining to like the heavy stance and bigger looks ...they have a class of their own ... americans tend to produce the most horsepower ...altough power delivery is another story ..

turbo_lover, mate I was joking!
of course the tyre had nothing to do with the car..it was a Continental btw
But I'm not wrong when I say most of the family sedans/mid sizers from US are crap looking and boring....and they are too big for their own good.
Their idea of cars is very different to Europeans/Japanese (which we tend to like)

Yes there are some American cars which look decent and even I like them...
th ones you have stated - Mustang, Trans-Am, Pontiac G6 (?) but so many of them are downright horrible.....
again looks are subjective but "most" would agree on this assesment I think.
