Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You may have noticed that Americans generally couldn't care less what outsiders think.

The crazy thing is that people are taking out 8 year loans now--on cars and trucks that only have 3 year warranties. Average purchase transaction price is around $40,000. And the passenger compartment of the big pickup trucks is so long that the bed is not big enough to carry actual big stuff. They are more like giant cars with open trunks/boots.
