Just wanted to repost that to get that D-bag Joe's blood pressure up. I want him to go to therapy.

This D-bag sits in front of his computer all day!

What a waste of life, what a loser!

Those Chinese Buicks are for the Asian market, not for the North American market.

I'm sticking to my Honda Accord for the near future. And by near future, I mean like 5-10 years, until it dies or I win the lottery. I can't afford to spend 6 months of my salary on a car that will last 10 years. that is crazy.

Too bad it's a darned gas guzzler, getting 18 mpg in the city according to the Tribune's review. Ford's just been better managed than GM, but its executives still don't have a clue that they've got to stop offering gas guzzlers or the nation will never recover.
Wow... guess what amazing city mileage a V6 Camry gets? 19 mpg, with less power and weight than the Taurus.

The Accord V6? 19 MPG.

So, a "gas guzzler" gets 18 mpg but 19 mpg is ok?

Amazing...

Some are going to Saudi Arabia. At any rate, it kind of lays bare the pathetic lies given for allowing free trade to decimate our manufacturing base with claims that once the Chinese and others standard of living improved they would buy goods from us. What a joke. Eventually we would export to them and the whole trade imbalance thing would work out -- can we put that bridge in Brooklyn back on the market yet?

Your eyes are deceiving you. The new Taurus is essentially the largest car on the market and has the most trunk space as well.
Ok, I looked at the specs, and it claims to be 20 cubic feet for the 2010 and 17 for the 2000. It is bigger, but I am wary of the small-looking shape of the trunk lid, which can make or break on what you can squeeze in there.

I am not trying to trash Ford just because I am not so keen on the new Taurus. I do like the Escape - a lot. And I will take back earlier what I said about crappy interior - as far as the Fusion 2010 - looks decent.
