I think Cadillac needs to sit down and think about who they want to be, because right now they seem to be shooting for “sportier Buick with dumber names”, and we all know where that’s going to end up.
Cadillac has one problem: it doesn’t make Cadillacs anymore. They are trying to compete car for car with the Germans, but it’s just not working. No one wants a compact 4 cylinder sedan from Cadillac. The CT4 is not even remotely what the average consumers mental image of a Cadillac is. Until they start making… Read more
Why not skip over fixing the roads and put the money into public transportation (at least for urban areas). That way we use the roads less and produce less emissions as well. Win-win.
You can negate the original manufacturing, that’s a sunk cost.
*Whispers* that’s not how taxes and government spending works
We can do both
The only Nissan that shares a platform with Renault is the Rogue, which is a Nissan design. Also, Renault is in an alliance with Nissan - they don’t own them.
Someone should also tell him that 3 of the 4 manufacturers he mentioned actually build cars in the US; and that there’s only a small market for American cars in Europe because they’re generally too big and too thirsty.
Oh, how I wish we could, though.

The only shared Nissan/Renault platform cars for sale in the US are the Rogue/Qashqai, the last Juke, maybe the Kicks? I’m sure that’s what he meant.
The ones made in Alabama?
Cadillac would be on easy street if it wasn’t for those damned Delahayes!
They did do a limited-edition Grand Convertible that was based on the Mulsanne. I believe 19 were built.
The Mulsanne is a lot more stately-looking than the Phantom.
By all measures, the Mulsanne is still built that way. It has the heritage 6.75-liter pushrod V8 with a couple of turbos bolted to it, and it’s hand-built by Bentley in Crewe. The only thing is that it has an Audi-supplied electrical architecture that’s much more robust than anything Bentley could have come up with if… Read more
The MX-6 (I assume the final generation) deserves respect. It looked great among its contemporaries.
