6M, W/T package, 4x4 - bring it!

There doesn't need to be more dealer effort to write bad loans. We've seen this before in the mortgage market. That ended well ,,,,,,right?

"What I don't like,,,,,,,,,,Plus, the transmission seems quick to find lower gears on roads that are not particularly steep."

This wouldn't be an issue with a decent manual transmission...

The big 3 are sadly negligent on this one.Not everyone needs a 1/2 ton or larger vehicle. They basically ignored the fact that America has become more urbanized, which requires a different...

1) As a currently attempting-to-be-a-former smoker, I don't know anyone who actually uses the 10V cigarette lighter!? For those few who still want to use it, BUY A ZIPPO!
2) The seats...

The "midsized" truck market didn't exist 30 years ago, as stated. It was refereed to as the "compact" truck market. That market has been entirely abandoned. There's very little advantage to these...

ABS, Trac, Skid Control - good.
Mandatory sensors interpreting the world around you and telling you where/how to drive - not good. (not even as optional equipment!)
As far as...

I do not agree that young people have no interest in working for a car company due to layoffs, parents, ect.,. It doesn't hold the same apparent impact on their lives due to their consolidation in...

And you omitted any mention of the diesel for what reason? It's not like there's a wide array of power plants to confuse the reader.

"Loing believes Nissan’s Juke CUV is a competitor of sorts to the BRZ and FR-S, as it has similar performance characteristics, as well as a DI turbocharged 4-cyl."

No manual transmission. I have nothing good to say about this change.
Not that anyone's going to read this anyway.

You're talking about dealership service advisers, however the issue goes beyond the dealership. Many chain service shop (regional and national) advisers are instructed to stick to the standard...

"A new continuously variable transmission is standard on both variants."
This was the model year that I died (more than a little) inside.

We REALLY don't need a close up shot of Bernie. Don't do that again please.

Outside of city focused cars (Smart, IQ, Fit, Mirage, ect.,), the answer to a better highway car is low end torque. If the torque is properly utilized, the vehicle is quite and fuel efficient. The...

Nonsense! A close family member (the one who likes to consistently tell me how wrong I am) insists that his Chevy 1/2-ton Z71 really gets mid to upper twenty's in mileage on the highway. Why?...

What I've been saying for a while; put that engine into the Charger/300C, with optional AWD. For the 20k mi/yr + crowd in North America, this would be a great addition to the marketplace. Big and...

Hopefully, they visit no-dealer shops also. I can think of one chain store (with a south-central Wisconsin store) that really isn't up to snuff when it comes to lift maintenance! But, no one wants...

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 21:36

This is a great looking vehicle. It will probably have pretty good performance also. However, the seats that they've been using over that last few years have been some of the worst that I've ever...

Well, let's get to it!
But,,,,,,there's always a 'but',,,,,,,we just need to ensure that we aren't utilizing farm land/food and forests for this process. I'm sure most of us can figure out...

Not that I blame them for not wanting to talk about it, where are they at with the fuel being dumped into the crank case?
Oh, and when can we get this engine in a Miata?! 310lb-ft of torque...

Yes, this type of engine is still very relevant. A small displacement, high tech engine does not guarantee good fuel economy. Grab a well maintained 2001 Buick Park Avenue 3.8L and a 4-cyl 2001...

Your assessment is skewed in the normal direction of the automotive writer. Shiny plastic, arranged according to the latest trends, does not necessarily make a quality interior. As a very NVH...

Unless you're in city traffic most of the time, try a 2005 Camaro SS with a manual for fuel economy. You may be uncomfortably surprised.

The primary issue is our sudden ability to remember something from the past (That never happens when it should). People remember cars that are noise and don't start in cold weather (my area). Also...

What, no one else cares?
Ref: I'm a former dealer employee (sales).
Either the industry has to openly/publicly acknowledge that serving the customer is not it's primary focus, or they...

"Nice price, impressive specs, fun to drive. But ... it's still a Cruze. An image makeover may be called for."

That's pointless snobbery. The car actually looks pretty good. The opinions of...
