  1. Front end looks great but not the side or the rear. Interior is beautiful. Wouldn't buy one!
  2. Thanks David. The autoblog article is also from September. i'm wondering if they've fixed the issues at the plant. I got the impression they had some disgruntled workers there. I guess we can't expect much from Chicago auto union workers as far as taking pride in their work goes.
  3. This topic deserves an update. Is this still an issue? The reason I ask is that I'm shopping for a new car for my wife and the Aviator is in the lead as far as features, price and looks. My first choice was the XT6 but the Aviator has some features that are important. The air ride with lowering when in park for easy in/out is one. The instrument panel is another. The Aviator is completely electronic and Cadillac's is just a Chevy cluster with a tiny LCD between mechanical speedo and tach. I waited so long for a decent size SUV from Cadillac and it's lacking right out of the gate.
  4. I remember putting playing cards onto the front forks of my bicycle to hit the spokes just to make some noise. Looks like someone will have to invent something similar for EVs.
  5. Where will he move the N. American VW headquarters to, I wonder.
  6. I've always been here and comment only occasionally. It's where I go for my automotive news.
  7. Sure, you can say that but it’s a segment that’s untapped. Hyundai could make it into something that everyone else abandoned years ago. I think Australia Proved it was viable until Holden shut down. I’m ready for an El Camino SS equivalent. Chevy could build one off the Blazer and I’d buy it as my daily driver and let my Camaro 2SS spend more time in the garage.
  8. The prices are out of control. High volume sales need realistic prices. Cars and truck are getting to the point where a 10 year note is needed just to make them affordable. That falls into the home mortgage space.
  9. They should advertise it as a “Ute” or El Camino remake. Don’t try and sell it the the traditional truck buyers, that won’t work. I like this thing actually but then, I’m not much of a truck guy. I prefer sedans with two doors.
  10. One has to wonder if this happened due to creative accounting or is it real. Only time will tell.
  11. I feel sad for Ford getting rid of their passenger cars. If the trend is towards higher fuel prices, they better pull a rabbit out of the hat to make trucks and SUV's super fuel efficient. Electric is still a long way off from being mainstream.
  12. I like it. Especially the front end. Very tastefully done without trying to go over the top. Lexus, are you paying attention?
  13. I guess I may be one of the few that isn't bothered by the poor visibility of the 6th gen. I tend to drive using my mirrors rather than the windows anyway. But what gets me is the naming convention. From the article: "Chevrolet has cut prices on the Camaro 1LS, 1LT, and 2LT as part of the 2019 refresh. They have also introduced a 1LE version for the 2.0L turbo-four to better compete with the Mustang EcoBoost. The 1LE brings a chassis package from the 1LE V6, 20-inch wheels, and a six-speed manual for only $30,995 (includes shipping)." What's with all the trim level letters? I'm s
  14. Nice try but I think Kia will want their grill back.
  15. This quote from the article: "This will save Ford $11.5 billion and up their cost-cutting goal to $25.5 billion by 2022." is about as dumb a thing to say for a major corporation as I've ever heard. Why not stop production of every vehicle and save all the money? Oh wait, they have to build something to stay in business. The issue isn't that sedans aren't viable. It's the shareholders causing this because they don't care what's coming in the future. It's about this year's dividends. Sad. What am I going to buy next if no US automaker is building a sedan?
