    Cadillac News: Cadillac Drops the CT6 Plug-In Hybrid For the U.S.

    That's terrible.... I get the point they're trying to make... that the Terrain is powerful for its size.... but they don't do a good job of making it.

    This one is pretty darn good too.... I like the sneaky gay innuendo in it.

    Cadillac has had some great commercials over the years. Different topic, but still wish they would bring back the "jingle". This is one of Cadillac's best. There should have been an entire campaign built around the "Fame" theme.

    yeah, it's sad they could only move that many. They're an impressive car, but RWD only and not a crossover. I'm betting an XT5 PHEV with the same spec would have sold significantly better.

    On the EV part, sure.... But that's going to be true for any EV. The EV parts of a CT6 are just from a Volt anyway, so the skill set is the same there. Changing the oil is the same as any GM 2.0t. I'm most likely going with FCA vehicles next time though.

    Silver lining: I can scoop one of these up after major depreciation hits.
  7. Hope you liked that tax cut. It looks like it will end up going right back to the government.

    She pretty gentle on it? If so and she is staying out of the boost, she has effectively gone from a 2.4 liter to a 2.0 liter. She also went from a 4-speed auto to a 6-speed auto. It will probably end up under 33 after a while, but should still do better than the '09. You could also just reset the average reading.

    What did you do to your ride today?

    Definitely, I just can't do a new(er) vehicle right now.

    What did you do to your ride today?

    Left the CRV at PepBoys for the list that needs to be repaired on it.

    Chevrolet News:What Does $48,045 Buy You? A Colorado ZR2 Bison

    Most people who have EVs never have to sit there in a Panera with $9 Mac-n-Cheese because most people are not doing 400-mile journeys every day. The car gets charged up at home. What's going on is that the Tesla owners are overusing the free SuperCharging. They're being cheap wads and potentially harming their battery's life in the process. They still haven't switched their mentality away from gas-powered cars. The only people who should be at a Supercharger should be those who don't have enough juice to get home. Based on my driving habits, I'd have to charge up once a week at most... I can do that at home. Charging every night is not necessary. Plugging a Bolt or Model S in at night once a week when I'm done driving for the day takes far less of my time than filling up with gas at the local Costco.
  14. There are people out there who will never buy used. I'm not saying it is a good prospect... but if Mitsubishi can keep the lights on, so can these Chinese players.

    Random Thoughts Thread

    I disagree with @dfelt that the falling price of oil is a sign of recession. If anything, low price oil will help to prevent one. However, it will cause job losses in the energy sector, particularly in Texas and other mid-west oil-producing states. If it stays that way for too long, those job loses can start to ripple through the economy. No, the issue to watch is interest rates, housing sales, and some of the big names on the stock market.
