I still cringe when I see Made in Japan. I actually prefer Chinese made products over the Japanese stuff.
Why? They make superiors products by far.
Heck look at their cars versus the domestic junk.
You always see a real mechanic driving one for a reason...They don't want to work on their crap on the weekend.
I have a friend who "thinks" he's a mechanic. Drives a 04 chevy truck or so. Those were the last few good years of the chevys. Anything later are complete JUNK.
