You see, over here we've been exposed to US, european AND japanese cars longer than any other western country, and hence we haven't really devoped a lean to any country of origin, merely a lean toward good product.
No offense here mate! I've known and complained about this for years.

See, this is what I mean by "bubble". You're vehicle market is highly protected by artificially high import taxes on overseas vehicles, which effectively makes your home-grown trucks more attractive price-wise.

Over here, a 2010 F150 is the same price as (for instance), a new Cayenne S........ they're both taxed the same, nothing artificial..... hence, we see it differently.
Not just the taxes bro! Almost all foreign vehicles are de-tuned and substandard to their host counterparts. Even the Hyundais in Korea seemed much more substantial than the shitboxes they sell here.
