Don't Buy That Crossover; Get a Wagon or Minivan(Jun 25, 2014)I don't think people bought SUVs over station wagons only because of styling. I'd bet most people in northern climates bought them because they wanted something 4wd for when it snows. Outdoorsmen who drove trucks when they were younger, bought SUVs when they had kids and needed something to fit a couple car seats in. That's why I bought one.
Volvo Wants to Hit it Big in the US(May 19, 2014)I really like Volvos, but I think they need to give a little more value for the money before I go out and buy one for myself. They seem just a little too pricey for what you get.
Audi Reveals US A3 Sportback with Diesel Engine(Apr 17, 2014)I can't say I would definitely buy one, but I will certainly test drive one next time I'm in the market for a new car. I like hatchbacks, I'm intrigued by diesel mpg, and I'm impressed with what Audi's been doing lately.
No Joke: All New Cars Must Have Backup Cameras by 2018(Apr 03, 2014)I don't mind requireing them for new cars. It seems like a lot of newer cars don't have very good rear visibility (the Chevy Camaro comes to mind). My question is will they be a required item for state inspection? One more $$$ thing to fix.
London Cyclist Slugged by Audi Driver(Jan 28, 2014)I don't have a problem w/ cyclists in the city, but when I'm on a 2 lane country highway with a 55mph limit and I have to jam on the brakes because some jackass wants to pedal along at 20 - makes me hate bicyclists.
Toyota Wants Next Prius to Look Cool(Jan 27, 2014)Toyota May want the Prius to look cool. Problem is, it will still be a Toyota, so it will actually look offensively dull and as "cool" as a puss-filled zit.
Toyota is Trying (Again) to Make the Camry Cool(Jan 20, 2014)The Camry is really a car for people who don't like cars and font like to drive. It's reliable and economical which is fine for most folks. But it's boring and ugly, so gear heads will probably never care about it
All New 2015 ATS Coupe to be Wreath-Lighter?(Jan 13, 2014)Why is something "outdated" just because it's old? Does the logo need to be changed? Is Cadillac missing out in sales because of their logo? How about keeping the same logo and concentrate on building the best car?
GM Unveils 2015 Full-Size SUV Family(Sep 16, 2013)I think they look fine from the front but there's something about the back that's not balanced right. It's hard to put my finger on it, but it's like there's some angles that are off or something and it takes away from the looks
Lincoln Showcases New Black Label Trim on MKZ and MKC Concept(Aug 17, 2013)I still say anyone who drives a Lincoln on public roads should be shot for forcing other human beings to look at it. Lincoln's are still collectively the most offensively ugly objects ever created by human hands, including modern art.
Chevy Dealers Debating Corvette Stingray Markups(Aug 14, 2013)If they are only going to make 1/3 as many this year as next year, it's going to be a collectors item and thus it will increase in value (if properly maintained). So let the dealers charge what they want for them and roll the prices back next year.
Subaru To Become Uncool by Going Mainstream?(Aug 11, 2013)If Subaru is making money and turning a profit by making "niche" cars, why would they move away from that? Here's a novel idea: Subaru should make the best "subarus" it can, for the best price it can and people will buy them.
Bieber Speeds Past the Wrong Guy(May 30, 2013)If JB wants to go out on a canyon road with no traffic and thrash his Ferrari, that's fine. In a residential neighborhood its just being an A-hole. I applaud Keyshawn for chasing him down, but did he have to use a Prius?
Fisker Looking to Buy Back Fisker?(May 26, 2013)I think there's a definite market for the car, IF it could be properly built and sold at a reasonable price point for a profit. But even so, it will take decades to payback the $millions needed to get to that point.
Lamborghini Unveils Veneno in Geneva(Mar 05, 2013)What is it with ugly cars this year? The new Ferrari is hideous and this thing looks like a cross between an Aventador with shingles and a semi-decayed moose carcass
5 Affordable First Cars(Feb 28, 2013)The Kia Soul absolutely does NOT look better than an xb, Element, or Cube. From the front, the Soul looks like an angry rat, and should be smashed with a baseball bat
Chevrolet SS Not Coming to Canada, Israel(Feb 24, 2013)Makes zero sense. Following that logic, GM shouldn't sell the SS in France, Norway, Belgium, Holland, Austria, Czech Republic, Greece, Poland...
Or they could translate "Super Sport" into Hebrew and sell it in Israel under that name
Lambo Urus to Offer 670HP Hybrid?(Feb 21, 2013)"Hybrid" is still a dirty word in the car world. The combination of fuel economy and power that hybrids actually deliver is not worth the expensive price tag, the sub par reliability, and the high cost of repair/ maintainence.
Audi to Release New A4 in 2014(Jan 02, 2013)180 HP seems too low for my tastes. But more importantly, what's the power:weight ratio and how much torque? In the real world, I'm never going to be driving over 90mph, but I do need a car than can pull out onto a highway from 20mph to 60 ASAP
