I went to Brooklyn yesterday to visit my sister and on the way home I passed through Baltimore. The Fort McHenry tunnel is normally four lanes running in each direction but because of construction 2 lanes were closed so everyone had to squeeze into two lanes. I waited fifteen minutes just to get into the tunnel. I get in and am driving down the left lane when all of a sudden traffic just stops. I look up and there's a sign that came on that said x-stop y-go. I'm thinking some moron up ahead doesn't know how to drive and caused an accident so I had to shift lanes (of course no will let you in) so I cut off a bus. What was the blockage - a piece of crap "oh so reliable what a feeling Toyota Camry" that broke down. What's normally a 5 minute ride turned into 25 and seeing something like that makes grateful that I don't buy Japanese and buy into all the hype of reliability.

LMAO I had a funny incident 2 days ago.

I was comming home from the gym and i see this guy pushing his honda accord fart exaust altezzas and everything. It was raning alittle and i felt sorry for the guy. SO i helped him push it to the gas station.

I asked whats wrong he said the car just shut off he had done some header work and came from the shop. SO i went to my house to get some jumper cables and i didnt even work.

I felt sorry for the guy but it comes to show you, Imports arent better than american.

ITS HOW YOU TREAT YOURE CAR.

Hey BK, I live in Baltimore and use both tunnels frequently. I feel for you, it totally sucks when it's only 2 lanes but to have a breakdown, whoa that can be some kind of ugly. You're right about no one wanting to let you in, when there is a bunch of traffic there it's motor city madhouse. Even worse with the new booths that the cars have a sensor and can keep going thru the special booths. It always creates extra excitement.

Of course Japanese and American car quality is the same, if both cars are made in AMERICA, most japanese cars are made in Canada/America now.

The camry/accord u speak of was probably made in canada/mexico.

Cars acutally made in Japan do have better quality.

I don't know if u guy's noticed, but american cars are built for 3 years because they sell more cars to fleets than they do people. Not all their cars of course, but most of them are built to last for 3 years.
