  1. I'm all for a small diesel however was really hoping to see them consider the bi-turbo 3.6 being an option. The LS motors just don't (and never have) give the low end torque. They are revvers and not luggers. Problem with diesel will be the premium $$ to get into one due to all the gov't regs.

    quit Ferrari-esque. Looks nice though
  3. yeah saw a green one already
  4. The issue with the 5.3 and such is while the 340 hp rating may look good, the torque band absolutly sucks. No 1/2 ton GM truck has had a better pulling motor than the late '90ls 5.7. While down on power they pulled way better. This is where the Ecoboost F150 shins, turbo's give a gob of torque down low. Our 2007 Tahoe, as much as I like it, sucks when a trailer is attached behind it. The motor has no low end. GM... stop with the HP wars and tube a motor for what it is supposed to do, not for peak hp.
  5. I did buy one back in '97. Sold it in '01. Kinda miss it. Hard to believe it's been 10 years since I last drove it. Doesn't seem like more than a couple years.
  6. My uncle in Grand Rapids is one of the first 2 in that side of the state to get one. He came down to our place today with his black Volt. He's had it for 3 weeks. Got to take it for a spin. Nice driving car. When first powered up and pulling out of the driveway it was on battery until getting on the road and starting to accelerate (keep in mind I'm over 2 hours away from his place so the battery was already depleted). Only when I started slowing down for the stop sign did I hear the motor running. When did accelerate hard for a stretch and you could then hear the motor rev up higher due to the

  8. Did any of you guys see C&G mentioned in the latest MT mag about the Cadillac ATS-V speculation?
  9. Ok... well there was no Cayenne opened up when I was there on Friday. The majority of the makes had full leather seating areas in the back seat. Merc, BMW and Audi was full leather seating area and even sides (again referring to the rear seats).
  10. Since having attended 10 of these in the last 12 years I thought I'd throw some opinions of this year. First off, it was better than last year by a bit (can it get worse than last year?). Porsche was back (woo hoo!). Guess we'll see Nissan Infinite next season. Mercedes was letting people sit in their vehicles again. GM booth was back to 2 levels again, but still not back to where the booth was in the early '00's (same with Ford). Was kinda hoping the show would've gotten moved out toward Novi back when there was discussions about it (rather drive up to Novi vs downtown - not a big deal thou
  11. Our Aura's trunklid opens almost straight up and down without the goosenecks
  12. I think it actually looks pretty good... almost makes the Verano look outdated.
  13. Yeah fresh motor and COLD outside. 29 ok good at this point. Figure your loosing at minimum 3-4 mpg's over summertime temps.
  14. Yeah both him and John Gibson. I like these guys and agree with most of thier veiws but this is bad mouthing only because of the bailout (which I was against but won't keep me from buying their vehicles).
  15. Hope it doesn't look like a large Cruze. I've been tired of the large front end overhangs as well.
