  1. Isn't transmission used in the G8 V6 same as the one in the gen. 1 CTS?
  2. Insurance for my 06 CTS is ~$740 per year, with $1K deductibles. Thats the best of all cars I owned.
  3. Then car manufacturers should do their best not to build the best cars.
  4. The people complaining about the Focus are the same people complaining about the 08 Escape. last time I checked the Escape is doing good.
  5. One more thing, Ford can't move up the Focus until it has a car smaller than Focus in the lineup.
  6. You put that car in Mercury's showroom and ask ~$30K for it and you'll sell 5 units per year, if you're lucky.
  7. Cadillac deserves almost as much criticism as Lincoln these days. Clearly Lincoln is down because of lack of investment, on the other hand GM made a huge investment in Cadillac just to end up with no 3-series competitor, no 7-series competitor and two cars competing with 5-series of which one is not good enough to do the job and the other one nobody even knows it's competing with 5-series.
  8. Lincoln is getting sales on cheap. Considering the situation that might be a responsible thing to do. If they get lucky MKZ/MKX/MKS combined will sell ~100K units, that's about the same as what CTS/STS/SRX are doing for a while now. I bet that assuming a similar volume Lincolns trio is more profitable.
  9. They should be able to sell ~20K units a year, considering a relatively low investment this vehicle required that might not be a bad number.
  10. The only thing the Impala proved is that fleets don't care what kind of engine is in there. Personally I have nothing against pushrod engines but the standards are set by the market leaders.
  11. The competition is using DOHC engines so you have to use DOHC engine too.
  12. Anyone disappointed with the 3.6 engine fuel economy? 17 MPG in city versus 19 MPG for the Accord, and that's with an extra gear. Does Accord's V6 require premium?
