??? Where'd you get that?

Vauxhall, Opel, Holden, all a part of that huge turd known as the GM family. The new Saturns are simply rebadged Vauxhall/Opels and in the case of the upcoming Pontiac G8 and outgoing GTO, Holdens.... Aussie GM.

No they are not. I would say Toyota and Honda are ahead of Mazda. Mazda simply refuses to do recalls (99-00 coilpack failures ring a bell? CAS?)

:gay: over here, the American GTO/Holden Monaro is badged as a Chevy, and the model appears to be just "SS". Weird. There's also a kickass looking (for GM) Lumina over here that I've never seen in the states. I think it's a badge-engineered Opel Calibra.

the holden stuff is way better in aus. Its detuned heavily for the US. The new g8 running on the zeta platform will be here soon. all independent susp. ls2 motor and rwd. If you want to see how the new camaro will be before it actually launches go drive that car. Same thing but with 4 doors.

I actually understood that the Holden was beefed up for american market. that the Aus motor wasn't as beefy. 4 doors is a no go.

The new camaro will be a pig.

4 doors or not 400hp would be a fun and practical car. The camaro will be a pig compared the corvette, but it will still have last years ls2 so it will move. Not quite like the miata though...

It's not a good list.

All companies have their strong points and weak points. The way they phrase it, it implies that all Mazdas are rock solid.
