  1. Any more delays past June and I think Tesla will have officially shot themselves in the foot long term. Benefit is that Chevy is going to win over some skeptics who will find the BOLT to be every bit as good if not better than the Tesla 3.
  2. Short term car shopping. Again.

    My 300K plus suburban does not use oil. I think it is how one does the maintenance or not. Seems those that think they do not have to do maintenance seem to have all the issue in the world.

  4. 1992 Cadillac Eldorado TC | Retro Review

    I can understand your point of view and totally respect it and will agree that, that should be a trim line. I can see the above as a starting point for the Eldorado with 2 more trim lines above that and the top line being a chrome beast.
  5. Nice auto's but not equal to a Denali especially in the looks department. These are too bland to say Luxury or even mid luxury IMHO.
  6. You are so CORRECT, Fiat and Alfa left dealership holding the bag with garbage product and warranty claims that never were paid. Engine swaps because the engines could not last even a few hundred miles before blowing up. Electrical problems that required using American OEM parts to have an auto work. American built Motors to replace the garbage Italian motors that could not last. Families bought into building dealerships, selling product and honoring warranties and then when Fiat / Alfa realized they could not survive in the US walked away leaving hard working Americans holding the bag and worthless product that no one wanted to buy, dealerships that folded and destroyed families. @smk4565 If you had any understanding of how bad FIAT / ALFA screwed over America in the past you would never make the statements you made. Learn the history before saying they have Italian Flair and more value than the US name plates.
  7. Alfa is only worth Billions on the books from the Billions the IDIOT CEO stole from the American brands and pumped into a dead product that has only sold a few thousand world wide. Alfa sold 8904 cars in the World excluding the US and 1648 in the US. Giving them a Generous 75K sales price per auto, that is only $791,400,000, so 3/4 of a Billion dollars and they have spent close to 10 Billion on the platforms and trying to bring Alfa back from the Grave. NO WAY the product is worth billions if they sold it off. Lucky if they could get a Billion. Alfa a waste compared to what they should have done with reinvesting the billions back into better products for the US names plates then maybe try to bring Alfa back.
  8. Badge snobs will buy the Alfa CUV crap, but I really do not see them making profits from the Alfa line compared to the losses they have incured for neglecting the American brands and pushing crappy Fiat here.
  9. This Denali sales thing with the fact that GMC sold approx 33K versus Cadillac 9K does make one wonder if GM shut down Cadillac, could GMC be their Luxury line, Buick Mid and Chevy Entry and reduce costs?

    I honestly would like to know what Refinement and Trimework you think is needed as the concept car is a beautiful thing IMHO.
  11. So the auto no only looks angry but still very butt ugly and spec wise, over priced. I really do not see the justification in the price to auto spec. My gut tells me this brand will be back dead or back to Europe only in 5 to 10 years at most. Wasted money trying to bring back a dead italian brand when they could have better invested it in the US name plates and worked to build a decent Fiat.

    Where is the Auto Love from the owner. I just do not get this use and throw away attitude. So much lovely metal going to waste!
  13. Volvo News: Leaked: Is this the 2019 Volvo V60?

    Weird part is that while my son has a Jeep Grand Cherokee that he loves and his girlfriend likes it too, Kay has stated she loves station wagons and thinks they are better than CUVs. She currently has a BMW and is planning on once she finished her degree as she also works during the day at Amazon. But I sent her these pics and asked her what she thought, she liked the V90 and even better liked the V60, so for this millennial I am surprised that a station wagon is what she wants.

    The more I think about this, I have to agree, limited Halo version and with that, Cadillac SHOULD just take the EL Miraji and tag it as the Eldorado and build it! This would make a perfect Eldorado!
