  1. It looks better in "real life" pics. I think the promo pics might have just been photoshops? Chicago Auto Show Gallery: http://www.autoblog.com/gallery/furious-fuchsia-dodge-challenger-r-t-at-chicago-auto-show
  2. Next-gen Chrysler 300 previewed in auto show video?

    Here's a much better pic of the new 300 front end: Looks like it's going to be pretty sweet!
  3. This is the only pink car I'd ever be caught dead driving......and only because of the 70's "Panther Pink" ones. Pics from: http://www.pantherpink.com/
  4. 2012 Dodge Durango SUV Pictured in U.S. Patent Drawings

    The new Durango/Magnum will share a platform with the 2011 Grand Cherokee.....which is unibody. It will also utilize Chrysler's brand new Pentastar line of V6's, that achieve excellent fuel economy. The HEMI, with MDS, already gets good mileage for a V8.
  5. Apparently Sebring is not that bad?

    Maybe that's just your perception from not actually looking at one. Here is the Sebring interior. Nothing is really "straight-edge"ed except for the center vents and radio.
  6. I would have to argue: YES....somewhat. The workers at "transplant" plants get alot of the benefits of being union members, without paying any of the dues. The very existence of the UAW forces the "transplant" companies to pay their workers a comparable wage, with comparable benefits. A UAW presence in "transplant" plants is just one simple vote away. The execs at Toyota have already announced that they plan on scaling back US factories, because it's "getting hard make a profit there". Yeah, like for over 100 years??
  7. Apparently Sebring is not that bad?

    From the same article:
  8. Japan's economy is doing "crappy", because it has been doing artificially good for so long, due to currency manipulation. Japan's economy died when they couldn't devalue their currency enough against the extremely weak dollar. Plus, the Chinese don't like to buy Japanese goods like us Americans do. We buy and buy, and expect nothing in return.
  9. Apparently Sebring is not that bad?

    I have never been impressed with any rental car I've ever driven. They are usually base models with cheap interiors....and people tend to beat the ever-loving crap out of them. I can see why the Big 3 wanted to cut back on their rental fleet sales.
  10. Apparently Sebring is not that bad?

    So....now Motor Trend is saying that the Chrysler Sebring isn't as bad as all the press made it out to be? Full Article: http://blogs.motortrend.com/6595321/new-cars/chrysler-sebring-pleasant-surprise/index.html Who would have thought a member of the press would admit to getting caught up in the hype of trashing "the worst car ever made", and then admitting that he might have been wrong?
  11. How many American cars are sold in Japan? How many American automakers have gotten subsidies and incentives from the Japanese government to build their plants in Japan, to sell cars to the Japanese? The answer to the first question is hardly any. The answer to the second question is exactly ZERO. No wonder why the world's population thinks Americans are stupid.
  12. "Fiat is clueless"....."and no idea on how to build a great car" ? Did you know that FIAT also owns Alfa Romeo, Maserati, and Ferrari? I think they might know something about building "great", and luxurious cars.
  13. 2010 Dodge Caliber gets new interior, Europe gets new diesel

    From Autoblog: 2010 Dodge Caliber gets new interior, Europe gets new diesel Chrysler doesn't really have anything in the way of all-new vehicles for the 2010 model year as it works out how to get Fiat derived cars onto American roads as soon as possible. That doesn't mean the engineers and designers in Auburn Hills have been sitting on their hands, however. They have attacked at least one major sore point by giving the Caliber a much-needed interior makeover. We haven't seen it in person yet, but at least in these photos it certainly looks much better than the one it replaces. We'll have to wait to get our hands on for final judgment. The inside isn't the only thing that changes. Under the hood, European Caliber buyers will be able to opt for a new 2.2-liter diesel engine with 163 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. That version gets a combined mileage rating of 40.6 mpg (U.S.). Back here in the home country, we are still stuck with the much unloved 2.0- and 2.4-liter gasoline World engines. Come on, Chrysler give Americans a chance at an affordable diesel – and not just in the (overpriced) Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Caliber will be on the Chrysler/Fiat stand in Frankfurt later this month – in the meantime, check out the press release after the jump and our high-res gallery below.

  14. Subaru Legacy and Outback, Dodge Avenger and Chrysler Sebring new IIHS Top Safety Picks by Jonathon Ramsey (RSS feed) on Aug 27th 2009 at 6:29PM Four 2010 model year vehicles have just been awarded Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: Subaru's Outback and Legacy, the Dodge Avenger and Chrysler's Sebring. Top Safety Picks are given to those vehicles that come equipped with electronic stability control and receive front, side, and rear crash test ratings of 'Good' in IIHS testing. The Legacy has boasted a 'Good' rating for a few years now, while the all-new Outback takes the cake on its first try. The Sebring and Avenger continue their runs of 'Good' form in their current generations. [source: IIHS] Source article: http://www.autoblog.com/2009/08/27/subaru-...ler-sebring-ne/
  15. What about: ? Those douches could be driving something other than stupid Priuses, and having a bunch of other copycat douches buying them because Angelina Jolie and Miley Cyrus drive them. I thought actors were in a union? Why don't they support other union members and buy and American car?
