    Amazing level of pride in that building. Optimism. Promise.

    It Ain't Easy...

    Leasing is OK for my mom, she ends up with about 1/3 of the mileage limit at the end, but I am almost at the 36k mile mark and my Jeep isn't 2 years old until the end of April... I could never lease.

    One of our painters just leased a 2019 Terrain SLT AWD 2.0T, he got it CHEAP. Black over black, panoramic roof, etc. etc.

    It's like they're building the need for giant rebates into the MSRP... structurally. How can this be good for resale value?
  7. GM's "corporate engine" strategy sucks.

    It Ain't Easy...

    Was braving the quickly dropping temps and high winds to look at an LT Cloth AWD Blazer today. Black over black, $39k with an option package that has things I would like to have (auto kick liftgate, roof rails, auto start) coupled with a bunch of other stuff that I definitely don't want (blind spot detection, etc.). The safety nannies are a reality as standard equipment on just about every competitive make except GM (with a price competitive with Blazer's base MSRP) but to get a few useful items, one has to pay a gazillion dollars to get the full-boat package with a GM vehicle. Not good!
  9. ??? Moving more production out of the USA is a retreat. Chopping large swaths out of their model portfolio with nothing coming in the low price range behind them is a retreat. Mismanagement over many years... cut & run instead of fight... definition of a "retreat".

    Well, to me it is a good looking, chunky little useful conveyance. Love the diesel with stick. Europeans still love stick shifts. If you want something more whimsical, choose its sister vehicle, the Citroen Berlingo... Plus, ya gotta know how to switch hands, otherwise certain things get very boring!

    Much more sensational in its day than the "unnamed EV concept" Cadillac of now. Sad to see such a tremendous loss of relevance in what was once the absolute pinnacle of aspirational automotive greatness.
  12. Regardless of the superior ICE to inferior EV argument, GM is still (and has been) in retreat mode. They are retreating from their home soil. Plenty of people with long memories are not pleased by this fact.

    LOL it's entirely different. Why would you laugh (reaction to olds' post reiterating a known fact about repeated, even days later, fire flare-ups with EVs) at that post? Really.

    LOVE the green color on the Kia Telluride.
