Yeah, but they're making the same mistakes all over again, with sub-par product AND marketing missteps. The first comments raving about the car on their own website are coming from...their own...

What were they thinking? A commuter AND it's expensive? A hybrid AND it gets crappy mileage? A tiny two-seater AND it's bloated and heavy? Pick one Honda!

I think the colossally bad product...

It was! The difference between concept and production is HUGE. And sadly, American manufacturers in particular have been terrible at making the translation. That's mainly a symptom of their...

How Cars Are REALLY Made

Having seen the car development process first-hand (it's like sausage: tastes great, but you don't want to know how it's done), this captures it awefully well!

Agree. I would've bought this car had it been available here.

From all that's been discussed by BMW execs, FWD will never happen. That's just not what BMW is about and their dynamic heritage...

I think that's bamboo. Looks the floor in my house! I've seen a few of these this week in Santa Monica. I think it's just press drives but it seems ready to go.

Still no word on official MSRP?...

I second this.

I owned a new RX-8 for nine months and got rid of it ASAP (I've never owned a car for that little time). As was mentioned, it was a huge gas hog and burned oil like crazy - this...

That's 100% preposterous.

If Ford asked for bailout money to acquire another money-losing company, they'd be pitched down the capitol steps, pronto. The constituents of any member of congress...

That sound is amazing. The previous RS4 (RS8) and the Aston V8 Vantage were the kings of V8 rumble. I think we have a new contender.

Actually, the average buyer does order a nav system. Well over half of all Prius made have been sold with navs (which dealers charge a premium for) and non-fleet Civic Hybrids have sold a little more...

I like these things but I wonder if it'll sell in the US market. The people-carrier segment does very well overseas but never really caught on here. Perhaps it's the tall hatchback image baggage. I...

The monkey wrench in all of the armchair planning (I'm guilty too) is the dealer base. They all have investments and agreements and will require a HUGE payout to close a brand. Oldsmobile cost GM...

Oh no, I'm not suggesting the 1-series is a success at all. As I said, "flawed." As in FAR too heavy, and WAY too expensive. Swizzle said they're overpriced at $40k but it's closer to $50k+ for a...
