I have driven them off-road on several occasions and each time I was disapointed.

A Ford-F Series is much more better off road even if it is set on 2wd.

You seem to be disappointed in any good car because your ass is sore from your other activities.

I'm not too interested in you personnel lifestyle and "activities".

But Subarus are pathetic off-road in comparison to an F-250.
I bet you haven't even driven an F-Series, so there is no point in worrying about your uneducated childish slush.

What myself and a number of other people state is true,
its just that there is a considerable ammount of people who would like to convince themselves,
for some bizarre self-hating reason,
that asian automobile companies,
who have done nothing through their course of existance but simply immatate and copy the designs of technologies from superior American car companies,
make better cars than those of their own country.

Its pathetic how misguided unfortunate individuals like yourself continue to try and convince themselves the opossite of what they no is true.

The best way of describing it is SAD.

That's a good way of trying to get out of the fact that you can't say anything in response to what I have said.
You can't say anything.

I've owned and driven Audi cars since 1986 and nothing compares to them for a pleasurable driving experience. They are very under-rated and share many Volkswagen components, however while they may not be a 'performance car' they are far more reliable and comfortable for normal suburban driving than is a Subaru. My neighbor drove a 2007 Subaru and had nothing but problems with it from day one. He traded it in on a Volkswagen last month and is glad to be driving German quality over a Subaru which the new ones allegedly contains 40% parts content made in China, and we all know that if it's made in China it's usually crap.

Fact:...
Jake Chevylevy spends most of his time hurling cheap, rude, and immature insults at others to defend his dislike of offshore automobiles.
He seems incapable of presenting any sort of reasoned and comprehensive justification for his anti offshore obsession, other than crudely worded and confrontational rants at anyone who expresses a contrary opinion.
Solution:...
Mr. Chevylevy, I challenge you to provide(for the first time)reasonable arguments to illustrate specific comparisons between offshores and domestics which lend credibility to your otherwise empty accusations and insults.
I also challenge you to justify your frequent personal attacks on Americans and Canadians (and their countries of origin) while at the same time you aren't a resident or a citizen of either country, and yet present yourself as a qualified person to pass grossly negative opinion against these people.

Your chance to redeem yourself and your credibility.

It looks like several trips around continental US still isn't enough to satisfy a deraved and bored Canadian hypocrit.

You don't even know what you are talking about.
I'm thinking of seriously doing so in the near future.

What don't you understand about "Say something intelligent, instead of just your crude insults"
Or is that simple statement beyond your obviously limited intellect?
You slam offshore automakers and insult those who speak of them endlessly, but you fail to provide any logical arguments, facts, or otherwise support your incessant rants with something logical to back all your bravado.
