    I hear Hitachi makes womans vibrators.

    If they can make a woman cvm, then they should be more than good enough for powering your home and getting from point A to point B.

    This reminds me of when Howard Stern had a roasted chicken hanging off a fishing pole in the face of some guy he was interviewing who lost 300 some odd pounds. lol

    Hitachi is Japanese; their price point rubs people the wrong way.

    Definitely don't buy a North Korean one unless its a Type O Dong.

    Buy a Hyundai (they're Korean).

    Just don't tell GMC/Nike.

    Why can't some US automakers, like GMC, have a 100k warranty like fine automakers like Hyndai? They truly stand behind their vehicles.

    They are fast too - when you see them on the highway, best to move over a lane.

    No warranty because U.S.autos stink.
    Hold off on Korean cars with a potentail war starting. Hard on parts replacement as Toyota owners found out after the tsunami.

    I bought a Champion generator a few years back… it’s a copy of a Honda from what I heard and it runs fine, no issues at all.
    Think it might be Chinese. There were some models that were blowing up at one time, so you gotta just research to ensure yours isn’t one of them… mine isn’t.

    Here’s my advice for the car - If you just want a well-made car for not a lot of money that you don’t plan on ever selling and you aren’t scared of being labeled a geezer… then buy a 2-3 year old Ford Taurus, nice/roomy and powerful… They ride nicer than Caddy’s imo… Ford makes a solid V6, 200K miles is not a problem… they depreciate like crazy the first few years, so good deals are to be had if you are patient.

    If you are looking for a smaller car, than take a look at the Mazda 3… fun car, dependable, reasonably priced and made in Japan and with a hatch, you might be able to fit the generator in the back… 

    The 100K mile warranty is nice, but unless you drive an exotic, 100K really isn’t a lot of miles for today’s vehicles.

    luckily, i'm still young enough so i don't require a hard on parts replacement for the time being.

    Can't tell if this is a serious question but I just got a 2012 kia Optima SX and I absolutely love it. Its got a turbo 2.0 liter with 274 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, it really gets up and goes.

    Bought mine used with 17577 miles on it. Certified pre-owned though so it still has the ten year warranty. Paid $24500 out the door. Has every feature you can imagine. Push-start/proximity key, dual sunroof, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, infinity speaker system, bluetooth, nav, etc... It even has a cooled glove box to keep drinks cold on a road trip. Also highest safety score possible from both govt and insurance safety institute.




    I did a lot of research prior to purchasing and this was far and away the car that offered the most for the money. Take it for a test drive and I think you'll be surprised at just how nice it is.
