To a degree, it’s a sound strategy. Someone willing to pay whatever is going to be an easy sell. Better to focus on that more profitable customer and let someone willing to work for a better price go elsewhere. Read more

I think that should be regional specific training. Where I am the strategy for winter driving is to stay home if you can. If it snows, the roads will be clear in a few days.

I will say this- the Blazer looks really good in person. Don't know why GM didn't figure out a way to build it here

People bitch about the US’ useless licensing standards but I’d say it’s the near non-existent or politically driven traffic law enforcement. No need for strict licenses to get people to stop left lane camping/tailgating/doing stupid shit. We have laws on the books for that that just aren’t being enforced.

The Mustang is a top selling coupe in Europe, and an inch here is the same there, so yes, in Europe too.

The C63 is basically the size of a Mustang, so the notion of an engine of that size in a car that size isn’t crazy at all. Plus packaging isn’t the issue here, nor is handling, or really anything else besides MB appeasing to environmentalists and the EU. Read more

My only point was it seems like a lot of them shouldn’t have opened in the first place. IIRC Toyota has never closed a plant down.

Why can’t they modify the gas guzzlers? That’s the low hanging fruit. Switching from the Pentastar V6 to a turbo 4 hybrid system would be huge for their fleet. Read more

1st- I don’t have an exact count, but I get the feeling GM just has way too many fucking plants. Why is that? Seems it would make more sense to have a handful of huge facilities, at least in the US. A shotgun blast of plants makes for much worse press during a shutdown and more complications with labor on both sides. Read more

I unsubscribed from VinWiki when Ed tried to convince me that supercar owners should be exempt from property taxes everyone else pays. I’m paraphrasing, but his logic was that if they had to pay property taxes on the cars they couldn’t afford them. Can you hear my palm contacting my face from there???

Exactly. “Tesla kills Germans” generates more clicks than “Too Much Leasing Impacts German Residuals” though, so here we are.

4th gear- If you tally up all the cars Tesla has been claimed to have impacted or taken sales from, you’d have several multiples of the total auto industry. Read more

Though to BMW’s credit, no DLO fail. That and the engine must be where the extra $10K goes.

For sure, but that’s across the board. I do think there is a reversal though. The new Versa and Corolla have much smaller back seats than their predecessors. I think this was done deliberately to force anyone who needs a back seat into something more expensive. Which is kind of shitty. Read more
