Apr 10th 2011 12:36AM Cadillac should offer is a small BMW 1 series-ish sedan AND coupe for when gas is $8 a gallon.

Apr 6th 2011 12:11PM The WRX is constantly one of the ugliest cars on the road.
Apr 4th 2011 12:36PM Hmm...I find myself in the minority. I still like the Beetle. I like the old New Beetle. They still look unique on the road, where as so many new models from other companies immediately look staid and boring.
Me? I'm a VW Golf kind of guy, or a Polo, if it ever gets here. But with my height of 6'5" I find my friends 2000 VW Beetle has plenty of headroom. Very nice.
My 1991 Volvo's still running like a top, but sometime something will appeal to me.
Mar 31st 2011 4:45PM I hope its smaller and lighter.
Mar 31st 2011 4:42PM How much does it weigh?
Mar 24th 2011 8:26AM I'm 2000% non-union but I understand his point of view. But still, its just hard to read or hear this kind of rhetoric from a union rep. If we started a list of self-defeating decisions the unions have made over the last decade it would be a mile long...and growing.
When they clean up their act, getting away from the mafiosa thuggery and admit to the astounding excesses they required the car companies to agree to, maybe I'll start paying attention.
Mar 18th 2011 12:06PM Ever since the supersizing of the Golf/Rabbit I've been waiting for the Polo. I love the idea of great MPG for when gasoline gets to $5+ per gallon.
Give me a Polo with a 6 speed transmission, no power windows, no sunroof, no fanboy GPS, no conestoga wheel/tire set-ups, no electric seats, and a pretty basic radio set-up.
If I can get something like this I'll keep it for a long long time.
Mar 14th 2011 5:57PM Not sure how a hybrid is a good environmental move. This is a debatable topic. For a number of reasons it can be argued this is not the case. Immediately topical...Considering Japanese problems, less likelihood of new nuke plants being built that would be the best way to recharge plug-in hybrids.
But...it might be a good 'eco'-nomic move. The present administration is doing everything it can to raise the price of oil and gasoline - think weakening long term dollar outlook, no domestic oil drilling...etc., etc., etc. Oh, and the high likelihood of endless money printing induced inflation...Plus, long term oil will go up anyway because of rapidly increasing emerging market demand.
So...you might want to consider any vehicle that simple gets better MPG. If gas gets to $7 you'll be setting prettier than those that don't.
