I think the absurd American demand for SUVs and "rugedness" is our biggest threat. Combine that with loopholes, tax breaks, and fuel efficiency skirting/run-arounds for SUVs with our CAFE standards and we're f*cked. I'm afraid car manufacturers will only offer SUVs/crossovers and jacked up hatchbacks and wagons with body … » 4/13/14 8:45pm Sunday 8:45pm

Just watch these take over the narrow city streets and highways of New England. LOL. On a side note - we NEED a gas guzzler tax for "light trucks" too, or abolish the tax completely, as it only applies to cars and wagons. » 4/12/14 11:39pm Saturday 11:39pm

The only and closest thing resembling this is the SEMA Action Network, which is a pro-hobby, pro-aftermarket lobby group.

But what about the crash structure? I thought the crumple zones were COMPLETELY different. Wouldn't they have to crash test the Euro version? Or they have to petition Ferrari to say that it's close enough to the US version. Or this. Nevermind, I'm just confused now. I really think that the IIHS and Euro NCAP should… » 3/21/14 5:47pm 3/21/14 5:47pm

I think GM should have kept Saturn, or at least resurect it. Remember the Saturn Astra and that sedan that was a re-worked version of the Opel Vectra? Since the smaller and more fun Opels contradict what Buick is known for in the States, the smaller Opel cars could go under the Saturn name while the larger ones go… » 3/03/14 12:46pm 3/03/14 12:46pm
