  1. In my case, I posted the source weeks ago on another thread but you are very correct sir.
  2. Then post them for all to see. I posted mine a few weeks ago and you went into denial about it. Think about it. How is it that the Challenger, which again I love, goes from a perennial third place sales position for years to all of a sudden, a marked increase while offering only modest changes compared to the competition? Higher incentives and rebates. These are simply facts you cannot deny.
  3. Ford News: Ford Plans Downtime At 5 North America Plants

    “Planned downtime”. The words we are looking for here are “temporary layoffs”. And 162 days for the Continental? Holy crap! That’s not good for a car that’s been out barely a year.
  4. Not if you’re upside down from trying to take a corner like you’re in a Porsche and not a Jeep.
  5. And my information came from an unbiased third party source for manufacturer discounts only and FCA was tops overall. Yours were dealer rebates, hence my point of distinction so if you have a problem with the unbiased facts....
  6. It’s rebates. Got a problem with that so much that you have to bring it up? Sounds like the truth bothers you regarding the rebate leader FCA (and again that is based on factual manufacturer data and not typical bait and switch dealer rebate ads). And before you even go there, I have made it known many times that I would take a Challenger over a Camaro or Mustang any day of the week so you please just hold on to that GM bias card for now.
  7. Genesis News: Genesis G70 is Korea's 3-Series Challenger

    I’m sorry but did he just compare the ride of two cars, that have been complimented for their rides, to a 4 decade old box on wheels? Seriously? Is he just arguing to argue? I fail to see a real point here otherwise. EXACTLY!! Not one of those drivers around here take those off road, not one! Now, I know there will be the “well most SUV drivers don’t go off road”. Well, they are idiots for it since that is one of its primary functions. Don’t opt for a Wrangler when an Edge will do. The G Wagon is a massive rip off made for elitist suckers, end of damn discussion. Hell, I’ve moved furniture in my dinky ass RAV4 and didn’t have to pay $140K for it.

    It is also an outdated $h! of a deal (and proving there are suckers everywhere) when you can pick up a two year G for about half the price of a new one. Barnum was truly right.

    Yeah, after a little research I realize that was not the case. It could have easily been done on those though. It was the best upsell of the old Astros and Safaris. Maybe they are not available and practical (economically speaking) because of the extra weight in this CAFE age?

    While talking about the the high end that Cadillac doesn't have, he will completely sidestep the low end that Cadillac also doesn't have (Looking at you FWD CLA, A Class, and Metris). "Look ma! There's a bar over there! Can I just kick it for the hell of it?"
  11. Random Thoughts Thread

    I swore I've seen some older commercial model Suburbans (before Tahoe existed) that had them but maybe I'm getting a little foggy in my old age. Still love the concept and wish more SUVs had them. It's that versatility that I'm such a fan of.
  12. Random Thoughts Thread

    Dutch doors are definitely the best of both worlds. The older Suburbans used to have them as well (early and mid 90s models I believe).

    The bar moving is simply baffling nad unprecedented and that is saying something given the history of rabid fanboys I have seen over the years.
  14. Genesis News: Genesis G70 is Korea's 3-Series Challenger

    Actually you will not see me defending that once. I am pointing out sales and how you keep moving the bar to suit your argument. Big difference there because I have been very clear about my disdain for CUVs on this site. Btw, that very same argument can be applied to you in reverse. And in yet another bar move, you attempt to compare mainstream brand Chevy to luxury maker Mercedes. I have no words for the pure grade A bull$h! fallacy of that "argument".
  15. Genesis News: Genesis G70 is Korea's 3-Series Challenger

    First bar move (all of this is paraphrased btw) "Mercedes outsells Cadillac in China" responded with "Buick outsells them both by light years" Second bar move "Well FWD CUVs will phase out and Benz will rule all" and "Buick is not luxury" (even though their cars get compared and cross shopped with MBs FWD offerings) Just kick the damn bar over already and be done with it.
