  1. Honda News: 2013 Honda Accord Order Sheet

    The current Accord has arguably the best driving dynamics of any midsize car and is still at or near the top of its class even at the end of its life cycle.
  2. Cadillac News: SPIED: Cadillac SRX

    This car would look much better without the huge, dopey headlights.
  3. Facelifted Chevy Cruze photos emerge

    Pictures of the wagon show the updated front-end. Sedan would look much better with the wagon's taillights, too.
  4. Cadillac News: LA 2011: Cadillac XTS

    If people buy 7ers and S-Class' as status symbols and nothing else, GOOD FOR BMW AND MERCEDES. Decades of consistent engineering, design and branding gets you somewhere after all. The fact that brands like BMW and MB can attract buyers on name alone is a GREAT thing and might have something to do with years and years of consistency. Yet somehow this is reduced to dumb luxury car buyers with more money than brains who don't know or care what wheels drive their car. How could it possibly be perceived as a bad thing that a brand has reached the level of being an aspirational product? Cadillac might want to think about positioning itself as a marque these mindless idiots will spend their money on based on name alone.
  5. Cadillac News: LA 2011: Cadillac XTS

    The argument that "there is a market for this car" and "not everyone wants a CTS-V" is not valid IMO. I'm sure there is a market for this car, and GM has Buick to cater to it. Cadillac should be focusing on aligning itself with tier-one brands if it wants to be considered a world standard. And 'Pervez,' calling the XTS' infotainment system "the Apple iOS of the industry" is premature. Everything we know about CUE at this point has come from Cadillac's PR team. Every brand in this segment puts out highly advanced technology. We don't know yet how CUE will stack up against Audi's MMI, BMW's iDrive, etc. Ford and Lincoln's MyTouch is touch-capacitive like CUE and has been met with universally negative critical reception. Let's hope Cadillac's execution is far better than Ford's.
  6. Cadillac News: LA 2011: Cadillac XTS

    So, essentially, this is a competitor to the 2012 Hyundai Azera.
  7. Giving Thanks For Car Spots

    Ah, yes. And having moved to Philly in March, it wasn't until just NOW I even knew of such a thing...taking a closer look at that picture. Interesting. These look very, very cool in person with great presence. Spotted another black one yesterday. A red Veloster pulled up opposite me at an intersection the other day. I couldn't quite make out what it was until I passed it--this car looks very different in person. The rear is still a bit overdone for me, but I tend to like simpler designs. The front is much better in person. And the shade of red looked great. Also, I've been seeing new Civic sedans all over. Very few coupes though.
  8. GM News: LA 2011: Buick LaCrosse GL Concept

    This looks great.
  9. Even More FT-86 Items: Leaked Spec Sheet

    Love the concept. >2,700 lbs is impressive.
  10. Fisker Karma Arrives Onto Dealer Lots In July*

    The Greenwich, CT dealer is about 15 minutes from me. They have Ferrari, Bentley, Alfa (8C only, for now), McLaren, Bugatti, Maserati, Aston, Rolls, and now, Fisker. I go up there occasionally to look around and can't wait to check one out.
  11. Jeep Compass & Patriot: When Two Become One

    I don't see what's so impressive about that. I wonder if he did any damage while teetering on the car's underside more than anything else.
  12. %$#@*&# SNOW!

    Got about 8 inches here in SE NY. Roads were a mess on Saturday.
  13. Rumorpile: BMW Coupe To Be Named 3 Series or 4 Series?

    Because names like "Cruze," "Verano," "Sonic," and "Spark" are so meaningful.
  14. Coming To SEMA: Lexus 2013 GS 350 F Sport

    Preliminary reviews point to this new GS being a class leader in terms of driving dynamics, so this should be interesting.
  15. Cadillac XTS Struts Its Stuff At LA

    Do I think the XTS will outsell the A6? Yes. Do I think buyers will cross-shop the two? No.
