In your opinion, what do you think is the most underrated and the most overrated luxury car brands out here?

Most underrated: Mercury(yes, Mercury is a luxury car brand). Although Mercury got discontinued earlier this year(the Grand Marquis, which is the last Mercury ever made, came out this January 4), they've always had quality and reliable cars. The Grand Marquis is the best-selling Mercury brand in history.

Most overrated: Land Rover(Range Rover). Range Rovers are one of the best-looking SUV's on the market, but they're also one of, if not the most unreliable luxury brands around. They also have little to no cargo space. Was thinking of putting Lincoln or Hummer as the most overrated, but I pick Range Rover by a little.

    Im assuming you are shopping for cars.

    Get something that has relative ease to get parts for. I remember talking to a guy who was a car dealer, and he told me he makes his money off repairs, and not too much off the sales. Sometimes people get cars and after 8 months they hate it.

    I wouldnt touch a volkswagen, or majority of those overpriced SUV's. Honda's are cool for the most part, but every person on the road has one.
    I keep hearing Ford has really improved their quality on cars, but thats just from word of mouth.

    I've always loved Buicks. When me and my neighbor used to deliver paper last year and early this year, he would let me drive his '95 Buick Regal to the Depot with him on the passenger side. Very smooth ride.

    it's that old-school "cool" in my blood Moe lol....

    Owning a Caddy meant you were IT, you made IT, and you have arrived (as a kid in the 80's)


    If you had a Benz, Beamer, Audi, Jag, etc. you were considered RICH

    Toyota isn't considered a luxury car brand, but I do agree with you. Lexus looks nice, but non-luxury car brands like Toyota, Honda, Chevrolet, and a few others look better than it.

    lol I feel you, fam. I'd rather have a Cadillac(old school Caddys only) than the other 4 that you mentioned.

    Well, I don't know about them rims, but yeah. lol The rims are nice, but I'm not a flashy person. If I don't get a Grand Marquis, I'll check into them '06 Mercury Mountaineer SUVs.

    Sports cars look nice, but I'm all about the big cars. Nothing expensive, but with a lot of room in them.
