Seriously, what kind of sick bastard does this to a Miata?
I don’t have any words.
The 2017 GM car VIN decoder is up, and lo and behold, the SS and Caprice are still listed. Engine options have not changed, though (so no LT1 for the SS).
This popped up in my Facebook feed (a friend shared it).
The good: the car is getting some interesting updates.
Ford Racing is now selling Quaife diffs for the Fiesta ST and the Focus ST.
A quick check of the 2016 GM VIN decoder reveals that the LKW, the 2.5L Ecotec 4-cylinder engine, is gone. The 2016 Impala order guide shows it as being replaced by the LCV, which is the same engine less the iVVL system, and the 2016 Malibu Limited (which is the current car, but likely only available to fleets) will…
I'll let y'all figure out the puns for this one.
However, as has been pointed out to me (and according to my own Googling), no one else has picked this up, plus James May's last tweet is the own about how it has been a week since the incident.
I'm sure most of you saw the post about Caddy getting ready to debut a new family of V6 engines next month, likely at the New York Auto Show. Well, thanks to having the GM VIN decoder page bookmarked, some key information can be gleaned about this and other GM passenger cars (and I can probably get in trouble).
Any ideas as to what it is? I thought it might be a Genesis for a second, but then I remembered that the Genesis is already out and not due for a mid-cycle update for another couple years. Guys in my FB group think its definitely something Korean. Dash-to-axle looks long enough for RWD to me.
Seriously, there's this one idiot who can't accept the fact that Honda isn't what it used to be. Guy comes after me because I had the gall, the nerve, the gumption to say that a Honda wasn't a good car a few years ago.
Anyone have any ideas as to why? SEMA stuff? GM fucking with us? The world breaking?
Problem is, they're trying to take a page from Subaru's playbook. Acura is not Subaru, and will never be Subaru. I could understand it if they were looking at it from the point of view of 'hey, Audi is doing pretty good with AWD, maybe we should try and see how that works for us'. Problem is, they aren't Audi…
If the configurators on cars.com and the NADA site are to be believed, the GS350 can no longer be ordered with both the F-Sport and Cold Weather packages. I'm really hoping this just an error on both sites parts, as if I ever win the lotto, one of my first stops would be at a Lexus dealer to order a GS.
Why can't they just call it ETS (or OTS, for Omega Touring Sedan)?
