Preach!! GM always finds a way to cut costs in areas that the end user is guaranteed to notice as well. BMW? Not so much.
Just keep doing your job in China, Buick, and you’ll be fine. That’s the only reason you’re still here today anyway...
The thing that always bothered me the most about those cars is that the front track seemed to be so much wider than the back. It always looked “off” to me... to be fair though I’m not a big fan of Caddy’s 1980's styling anyway, regardless of model.
Nation-wide, Alfa is doing much better. Both the Stelvio and Giulia have outsold the equivalent Jaguar models since they came out, and I don’t see people worrying that Jag is going to disappear anytime soon.
Ever read the book written by Sewell about customer service? That man really got it.
As a current Alfa owner, I disagree. My car has been flawless and it is a blast to drive every day!
My first automotive job was as a “gopher” at a transmission shop. I learned a lot there, including that few things in this world smell as bad as burnt ATF and that the inside of an automatic transmission is just a sea of clips, seals, plates, discs and other items that don’t look like they should go together.
OEMs using third party companies for major components isn’t a new thing. GM makes plenty of transmissions, but for the heavy duty applications they probably decided the Allison unit was better suited.
This was my first thought! I think that was the only thing I genuinely liked about that show... it was otherwise thoroughly adequate at best.
If so, it would be bold of them to actually advertise the type of meat they use right in their name.
YES. That would be a perfect addition to the lineup and I can practically taste its greasy awesomeness as I type this.
I’ve found Southwest and Jetblue to be very fair about that sort of thing. I mean, obviously Southwest won’t charge you to reserve a seat since you can’t... and you can opt IN to Early Bird Check-in which moves you to the front end of the boarding process, but that’s your choice and if you are smart about when you…
Every once in a while I come across one of those ideas where I say to myself “If I had Jeff Bezos money, or won the lottery, I’d make that happen...”
Cherokee is definitely not a wagon, it’s a CUV/SUV. I’d say the same for the Ford Edge, Escape, etc.
“Remember the 9-3X? Regal TourX? Golf Alltrack? They’ve all come and gone...”
Nice to know even GM can’t get the tailpipes to be level on a 3rd-gen...
I’m a huge Elton John fan and had never heard of this interview before, so I’m really looking forward to watching it later.
I agree with you 100%. Las Vegas hotels with their “resort fee”... c’mon guys. If the resort is part of your hotel, then make the associated costs part of the room price. Same with concert tickets, etc. (OH YOU WANT TO PRINT THE TICKETS, THAT’S $1 PLEASE).
The funny thing is that more than one person has said something to the effect of “But that burger is going to cost $2 more!” but the reality is that it wouldn’t.
People are accustomed to having state and local taxes added onto a bill, or airport fees in the case of air travel. That’s not what this is.
