Kick a dog when it's down

Sixty-three percent of Americans say they wouldn’t buy a car from an automaker in bankruptcy.

When a bargain is to be had, they won't bite?

Talk about taking your moral high ground to Everest.

No explanation was sort or offered for these odd, and seemingly cut-off-your-nose-to-spite-your-face, results.

    Who wants an "orphan" car?

  2. How are they orphaned?

    The car companies in the US are bankrupt, yet they still exist.

    It's not as though parts and repairs would vanish even if the companies did ... which they're not, at least not for now.

    Of course, I'm not suggesting that someone who doesn't need a new car should run out and buy one just because they're going cheap, but boy, the deals can't get too much better than this, err, well, maybe wait a month. :-)
