As far as i'm concerned buying a car does not depend what name the car has, what factory its from and so on. US automakers always made reliable cars, but they forgot to keep notice big changes that happened in the world over the last decades. People want environmental friendlier cars and those were almost not available in the US auto industry. If Opel-Fiat can make a reliable and environmental friendly car, i dont see a reason not to buy it!

I think right now it is very important for the US auto industry to build environmental friendly cars which, so far, the US hasn't done(but could have!). But if they want to compete in the international auto industry in the future, that is the very thing which needs to be done!

I have the latest model of Opel Corsa and my first car was a Fiat. I would definitely buy a model from a Fiat-Opel company. They both build viable economic cars.

mostly in country like Sri Lanka, after sales service for Europien car is very poor. in the sri lanken markets the spares for Japaense, Korian, mostly Indian and Chinese cares are widely available. then we are thinking lot about second hand cars also, then in Sri Lanka second hand market for Europien cars also very low due to expensive spares, then people are reluctent to buy europien brands. if we would build a culture in these countries that Japan has build or other Asian countries build we can sell europien brands as well. mostly hear we have a little dimand in Mercidies, Volvo, BMW, due to available spares and also availability of cheap second hand spares. hope this will hep u to get some idea about Sri Lanken market.
