I think I'd be able to concede the Wrangler, though how realistic is it that it would survive when gas got back to $4/gallon. Its primary role as a frat boy mover would quickly be replaced by something more practical (save on gas = more dough for beer). The rest of the vehicles are niche at best. I drive a Ranger; it isn't an anti-Ameircan bias it is a anti-junk bias. My old neighbor is a mechanic, owned 5 Chrysler vehicles, and spent 95% of his free time repairing them. It is probably better to say they owned him. One was a brand new (2006) Ram 2500. All but one was "late model." When vehicles with a few thousand on the odometer leak oil, you got to wonder... Of the fleet vehicles I have driven, the GM truck and the Ford cars did well. We have a new Prius that is pretty nice.
