Jay Leno tells Detroit to make better cars - Autoblog: "Americans just can't seem to build a low-bucks economy car. 'In order to make the more expensive car more appealing, U.S. companies feel as though they have to dumb down the cheaper car,' the comedian reasons. 'When you get into a high-priced, well-made American car today and the key is in the ignition, you hear a melodic bong, bong. But when you get in a cheap American car, like a rental, and the key is left in, it goes plink, plink, plink. It's just horrible. Every time you use the turn signal, it's like breaking a chicken leg.'"
