There has been no shortage of mistakes in any era of the auto industry. I've learned a lot from readers the last couple of months. I'm looking forward to more comments.

Actually it is both. Beautiful cutaway that shows inner workings and layout.

Readers and Facebook friends have suggested 4-wheel steering, lost-foam casting, space frames, EDS, Saturn, Jack Nasser also belong on the list. I may gather these up along with others and write...

I think the new Fusion is gorgeous, but suggesting the new look is not inspired by Aston is disingenuous. Check out side-by-side images in February WardsAuto World here:

A number of excellent light-duty diesels were ready for market until everybody but Germans and Chrysler chickened out in 2008.Nissan and Honda bailed too. RAM may get light-duty diesel option in...

My editorial opinions are based on facts, logic and deductive reasoning, not political dogma. A strong national auto industry is good for all Americans. It should not be a partisan issue. George W...

I beg to differ. I've been covering the auto industry as a professional journalist for more than thirty years. Evaluating someone's expertise based on what their father did 40 years ago is pretty...

It's true Volt is eligible for $7,500 federal tax incentive, plus numerous state incentives that certainly make the price more accessible in addition to low-cost leases. In the short term, this...

Personally I think allowing police to pull over anyone not wearing a helmet just to verify insurance is more disruptive to personal freedom than just requiring everyone to wear a helmet. Michigan...

Pedestrian-sensing technology is available on some Volvo models and is coming on other makes. We can only hope it works for motorcycles as well. Also, many TV advertisements touting blind-spot...

The article clearly states WardsAuto did not do the survey, we are reporting on it. The article then cites the Center for Auto Research which has studied in depth the impact of fuel economy...

Thanks for making my point, ROKHED22. As for the validity of my research, I invite you to click on the related stories at the top this page. Data from CDC, AAA, NHTSA, IIHS is very clear. Even...

I just don't get it. Today's helmets are light, well-ventilated and have lots of great features such as built-in sun visors. There are no visibility or hearing issues. Those fighting helmet laws...

It's not old to those of us in Michigan who suddenly are seeing a stunning number of riders without helmets and now hearing about motorcycle fatalities every other day. In a crash last week,...

The idea that larger-displacement, slower-spinning engines last longer than smaller engines is long out of date. It's all about engineering now. You can find plenty of examples from the 1980s and...

We address that issue in cover story of WardsAuto World digital magazine above and on wardsautocom. Older qualified engineers have moved away to other jobs, don't want to return to auto industry...

I really was expecting to see some dissenting opinions. Is this argument so compelling no one disagrees?

Tuesday, April 10, 2012 - 09:23

My dad was an auto engineer. He made it sound like it was the most exciting job anyone could have. Are folks who live in emerging economies the only ones these days who get excited about...

The open-pored poplar wood trim pictured is interesting, but I can't decide if I like it or not. I'd be interested in what our readers think.

Hmmmmm. Ford fans seem to have left out fact Camaro is outselling Mustang in all their smack talk and funny videos .

Tuesday, March 6, 2012 - 17:11

There was a time when U.S. auto makers complained the value of the yen was artificially low and giving Japanese manufacturers an unfair advantage exporting products. These objections were...

$5.00 may spur folks to finally trade in their 11-year old gas guzzlers for something more efficient. We can only hope.

Not with a 15 million SAAR.

Ford and other GM competitors are doing very well in spite of GM tax advantages. Furthermore, Ford would have been devastated by the loss of suppliers that would have resulted from GM closure. As...

Creditors/bondholders would have ended up with zero if GM and Chrysler would have closed their doors.
And how was the payment of loans descredited?
Facts are facts no matter who utters...

Environmental lobbyists and federal regulators need to visit this place called Europe where almost 50% of new vehicles sold are diesels and innovations are coming every day. Mature technology? Are...

I'm just happy to see that a fist fight between Ford and Chevy once again can draw a crowd.

Most automotive journalists, including those at WardsAuto, thought VW was taking the wrong path with the new Jetta. However, Jetta sales show VW knew what it was doing when it offered a bigger car...

Studies show that the youngest teenagers with the least amount of training and supervised driving are most prone to crashes, so even though it's tough on parents, it's a good thing licenses are...
