Exelero Exelero

I think if Ford, Chrysler and GM want to turn their business’s around then they need to roll out a 10 yr 160km bumper to bumper warranty excluding tires and brakes and fluids. The problem with these companies is perception and I will give you a poignant example of my 79 mother who says they (big3cars) are unreliable and one should go out and buy a Toyota Corrolla. If my 79 year old mother who doesn’t care the least bit about automobiles is telling me this, what message is a 20 year old hearing except cheap financing.. Now look at the Pontiac Solstice and the Saturn Skyline. Beautiful cars and a trunk that everyone complains about and they had a development team devoted to this car. Do they not read what the critics had to say about the Miatia? So what does this have to do with wood boats…design function style reliability and fun.
