    You can't nominate a 4 year old Opel.

    You just can't. Go for the turbocharged car.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    Why? When is the last time you have seen an Acura somewhere else than in North America? It recently entered the Chinese and Hong Kong markets, 20 years after selling cars exclusively in North America. They haven't even entered the Japanese market yet.

    Well, Acura is headquartered in Tokyo, the chassis are Japanese as far as I know, the engines are Japanese designs, the cars are designed in Tokyo I'd imagine, the parent company is Japanese. They are just built in America. The BMW X6 is built in America but is it an American car? I don't think so. If Acuras are designed in the States, then maybe, but I don't believe that they are.

    The Astra has been a sales figure failure.

    Thank God.
    I agree with Kitdy that Acura is Japanese, there is too much Japanese hardware in them not to be.
