#735989 Biggest one day stock drop due to auto Fire in Seattle Suburb

Posted by Dodgefan on 02 October 2013 - 10:56 PM

Leaving one to wonder just how easy is it for these electric auto's to catch on fire and possibly kill someone.


That's cute. Because vehicles carrying a payload of highly flammable fluids never catch fire.


Those last two links are especially incredible when you consider that they are related to electrical problems. In a GASOLINE powered vehicle you say? Clearly this is witchcraft and we should go back to horse drawn carriages.

#672848 Buick Regal Wagon Is Not Happening

Posted by Camino LS6 on 09 September 2011 - 04:59 PM

CUVs are all awful, just terrible-looking things - all of them. And, I think this wagon would have sold pretty well. But that isn't why I called this decision a mistake.

It's a mistake because the car is in production and all of the parts to make it happen here are in production. Anytime an opportunity like that exists, the bodystyle should be offered - even if on a limited basis. GM has been toying with the idea of creating families of cars (multiple bodystyles) on a single named model, and that's a great strategy. Every opportunity to re-introduce this concept should be taken to get folks used to it again. This approach is what made GM so successful in the past, and it will work again - if they commit to it.

So, boo to this decision.

#667399 Rage... is it ever justifiable?

>>"Damaging another persons vehicle during the operation of yours is a property-damage accident."<<

^ Not sure how tandem/tri-axle dumps can get away with signage 'not responsible for debris from road' were this to be unilateral.

What's quite amusing in this thread is how the person advising one make a discreet right turn and avoid confrontation were he in the same scenario, reacts to the relating of a story with belittlement & shouted obscenities. A bit oxymoronic... :smilewide:

#660305 How much car can you afford?

Posted by Drew Dowdell on 26 April 2011 - 09:26 AM

I wouldn't buy new. I would buy certified pre-owned.

Let someone else take the depreciation hit.

#628250 2011 VW Jetta SEL *Now With Pics*

Posted by Croc on 11 October 2010 - 04:30 AM

I feel like this is getting circular. Honestly, there's nothing wrong with VWs. I'm not knocking the company, but I'm definitely questioning the wisdom of their conscious business decision to go downmarket. I mean, they've had quite an enviable market perception that has enabled them to command the MSRPs that they have...just because they have a VW on them. I really want to stress that my comments are based on my analysis of their business decisions. The only automaker I dislike is Toyota...I think the industry is better when ALL manufacturers are doing well because then designs become the differentiators.

I WANT VW to do well, but I don't think they've thought this strategy shift through and are making the same mistake GM did in pushing Oldsmobile and Cadillac toward volume at the close of the 70s and then into the 80s.

#706976 Industry News: Fisker: Can Someone Loan Us $150 Million?

Posted by Drew Dowdell on 17 August 2012 - 08:18 AM

I'm disappointed that any of the long timers here would wish a domestic car company, especially one with attractive and interesting designs, close up shop REGARDLESS of how they are powered.

Don't like the power train? Don't buy one... but don't wish them dead and then complain that GM only sells FWD, 4-cylinder, 4-door jellybeans.
