I like the car quite a bit. It cerainly isn't as balanced as my '99 Cobra was, but it is a hoot to drive. They needed to cut out some of it's heft. It is more of an autobahn cruiser than previous Cobras. I have to agree with the buy American plan. I won't put up with junk and I have had no problems with American goods. Our stuff isn't dying on the road and leaving people stranded. Buying an Accord because you don't want your wife driving a Taurus or Malibu or whatever is a bit insulting. The difference in quality probably isn't measurable and they certainly aren't any safer in the foreign stuff. Fit and finish may be an issue to some, but engineering and mechanical quality seem to be on par, for the most part. Green 94 5.0, regardless of your opinion on your Cobra and Cobras in general, you picked the fight here. Your first post had about as much tact as Hitler speaking in a synagogue. Nobody likes a crab. Have your whole clutch replaced or go to an outside shop, as is your right. Do it yourself, even. Either way, quitcher****in'. Find a shop that you can trust or sell the car at a loss. You state in one of your posts that you make a fair chunk of change sitting on your can, so you can afford it.
