    Cadillac News: The Move to Electric Marks Cadillac's Last Stand

    Nobody said that Cadillac should drop the V8. Cadillac should build a GREAT V8, better than anything that can be found in a Camaro or even a Corvette.

    Highest property taxes in the nation have plagued NJ for years. No wonder those who can leave the Garden State do.

    Tesla Laying Off 7% of Workforce

    Tesla laying off a few workers sounds like Great American Capitalism to me. Congrats.

    BMW News: BMW Refreshes the 2020 BMW 7-Series

    WAY TOO MUCH grille for the face on that new 7 series. What was BMW thinking?!

    Infiniti News: Infiniti's New President Admits QX30 Is A Flop

    Never understood the appeal of the QX30. I saw one at the local Infiniti dealership and asked myself: why would anyone buy an Infiniti hatchback? Then again, the Mercedes Benz CLA is more popular here than the QX30, which is virtually the exact same hatchback.

    That is no surprise since Florida, Arizona and perhaps Texas are their destination states for retirement. I have seen people move to Florida most of my life, and all of it started back in the 1950s (before I was even born).
  7. Wait a minute. Do we need a good V8 or a GREAT V8? Do we need a good I6 or a GREAT V6? EVs will not be mainstream for at least another 15 years, so GM needs to still make GREAT V8 and V6 engines with Great torque curves period.
  8. I am not a fan of the new CAFE standards put in several years ago. The real issue is keeping up with the Joneses when it comes to everything, not just cars. I cannot blame the president of NADA for lamenting high new car prices. He should blame the automakers for the start of leasing cars 35 years ago in the first place. Without car leases, the race towards higher-priced vehicles slows down. There are also too many 60-72 month car notes out there too. I thought that Hyundai/KIA would actually force prices down. Instead they joined all others in their car pricing too, with slightly lower pricing. Also, cars are not falling apart like they used to 30-45 years back, so new car replacements are less likely. If it wasn't for used car pricing, car sales may end up being half of what they are. Where is the $10,000 small crossover? Where is the $8000 small sedan and/or hatchback?
  9. So why didn't he propose 100% tariffs on all Chinese made goods a year ago?

    Cadillac News: Cadillac CT6: I'm Not Dead Yet (For U.S.)

    You should buy the car you like given your budget. Then again, there are a LOT of badge snobs out there who will look down at you for owning a Cadillac since they LOVE German luxury. The effect is not quite as extreme with those who love Japanese luxury cars for some reason.

    Cadillac News: Cadillac CT6: I'm Not Dead Yet (For U.S.)

    Too bad Deep GM was killed off during BK nine years ago.

    Cadillac News: Cadillac CT6: I'm Not Dead Yet (For U.S.)

    Our prayers MAY have been answered with respect to the CT6. Now if only GM would use the Omega platform for other vehicles as well. . . . .
  13. Sounds OK. I wonder if Ford will get VW to buy up Ford of Europe so that Ford will no longer have to deal with their wobbly economics and really powerful unions.

    Detroit 2019: 2020 Kia Telluride: Comments

    Did KIA ever upgrade their interiors on this one? Too Many KIAs have cheap interiors in their cars and vans and crossovers.

    Detroit 2019: 2020 Cadillac XT6: Comments

    The torque curve on the 3.6 is awful compared to the 3800 and 3900. That is the real issue. Why GM insisted on building a V6 based on those four cylinder engines from Germany is still beyond me. HP is nice, but a torque curve as flat as Kansas is what a LOT OF US want.
