I get your point though. On one hand you’ve got Americans (justly) complaining about lacking the freedom to register certain cars while others write these new ‘exotic’ vehicles into the ground with every chance they get, all the time every time. As a Pavlov reflex.
Either people are voting CP becaus “the French” or they are clueless. Yeah, it is a death trap but so is a 1970 beetle convertible. You need three wrenches, two screw drivers, and a hammer to work on the engine.
I mean were you really expecting Buick to offer a manual in a lifted wagon that sells against other wagons that also don’t have manuals?
Have you ever actually clicked the link below to read more of someone’s thoughts on auto trader dot com slash oversteer?
I never have, but if I did i’d love to feel some guacamole oozing through my fingers.
Thanks for dropping in! Formula E’s a blast to watch, but I always get some hum-hawing from people about too-quiet race cars and such when I talk about it.
Just how tailhappy are these cars in real life?
How dare they use wheels!
They honestly tried their very best, but the market was just too small by the time the C6 had had its run.
Citroën is already abandoning hydropneumatic /hydractive suspension on fucture vehicles. They’re expensive to support and maintain and apparently there aren’t enough customers willing to pay the premiums required to justify continuing to offer the system. Besides, today’s conventional suspension is good enough for…
Well of course, but in America, they weren’t taken care of as well (at least so I’ve heard). Something along the lines of fixes on top of bodge jobs, on top of fixes.
They also tend to become hysterical and are used to spending all day in front of the range.
Chapter 4: Broads Behind the Wheel - Since we let the skirts start driving, they have become one of the deadliest forces on the road. This is not their fault as their brains are only 2/3 the size of ours and their menstruation attracts bears.
Exactly...I was just commenting on the subtleties of ignoring so many of the cars that actually perform well in the comparison tests. As it stands, the list above would be fine for the European market, but this is a US writeup, so it’s a wee bit biased. I do it all the time as well.
Which Asian or North American crossovers compete with the Stelvio? The Lexus RX? Infiniti QX60? Buick Enclave? Cadillac SRX? Whatever Mazda, Honda and Ford have in this class?
Meh, Alfa has been building somewhat mundane cars since forever. While I loathe crossovers like this it isn’t all that much worse from a ‘purity’ point of view than the Alfa Romeo Mito, just to name an example. The Mito, which was introduced in 2008, is still in production.
The Italian Army would like to continue this discussion outside, in a field, now…
Hey, they switched back to a rwd platform for the first time in 30 years, that has to count for something!
As an almost for-sure future Alfa buyer, I’ll say “rabble rabble rabble brand purity not a real Alfa make more sports cars”
