Since everybody seems to be bashing Ricko, I think I'll jump in. The one thing that will keep me from even considering
a Ricko is their pitiful CTS-V. All that wait and for what?! It looks like Picasso made a model car.
well, I'd say not to judge a company on one model but rather on each model you may be interested in. I disagree with bimmergirl on the Lincoln and think it looks light years better than the CTS. Also, the pics I've seen of the Escalade ESV and posts I've read on some forums from people who have bought it make it look and sound like it is extremely well done.
if you judged a company on one miss it would be very hard to find any diecast to buy. Kyosho BMWs are great but their Mercedes stink. Highway 61 has produced some wonderful stuff but in my opinion their new Mustang is a miss. I've seen high end stuff from the likes of Lanes and GMP that were misses and even AutoArt has missed (didn't they do a Lambo with and upside down dashboard?). And lets now even start talking Ertl.
My point is buy what you like and like what you buy and look at each release on its' own merit and not based on a mistake the manufacturer may have made with a different car.
