Last week, the Free Press had a story about the domestics’ eroding SUV market share; turns out that, given the choice, more Americans are choosing gas-guzzlers made by Japanese and European automakers. But the bombshell was buried within, a quote from a woman whose husband works for Chrysler, claiming that her recently purchased Toyota was “the best car I’ve ever owned.”
Ooh, that was the wrong thing to say. I don’t have to come up with an analogy, do I? Didn’t think so.
Well, they’ve been duking it out on the Freep letters page ever since. My favorite single quote:
I used to own a Toyota and was razzed by my buddies for putting 10 Americans out of work, so I bought an American-made car and put 10 American auto mechanics back to work.
