Finally a " new VW Golf hits U.S showrooms

Might be new, but same problem as its predecessor with the too large diesel engine. It should be no larger than 1.5 litres.  (May 31, 2014 | post #1)

ACA will raise premiums for 65% of small firms

Nope. It's reality. Otherwise Obama wouldn't have extended existing policies for another two years. The fall elections have the democrats retiring in droves.  (May 18, 2014 | post #5)

Should SUVs be banned from USA?

I certainly won't buy a GM now. Too many problems.  (May 18, 2014 | post #24)

GM To Follow Ford With Aluminum Body Pickups By 2018

Be sure the check out the new Ram Ecoboost with the 3.0 diesel. It reportedly gets 28 mpg highway.  (Feb 24, 2014 | post #11)

GM To Follow Ford With Aluminum Body Pickups By 2018

Yeah their carrying capacity is limited, but most people don't need a lot. Sounds to me like you're better off with a half ton.  (Feb 21, 2014 | post #8)

I doubt you'll see even small trucks lose their advantage. Even a small truck can carry a fridge or a washing machine. Do that in a car.  (Feb 21, 2014 | post #6)

GM To Follow Ford With Aluminum Body Pickups By 2018

And the Ram Ecodiesel is selling like hotcakes. 8000 customer orders in 3 days. This will force Ford and GM to follow suit, hopefully, with a smaller diesel than the 3.0 litre in the Ram.  (Feb 21, 2014 | post #5)

GM To Follow Ford With Aluminum Body Pickups By 2018

Do something original maybe. How about come out with a unibody half ton pickup with a 2.0 litre diesel engine for real good gas mileage? Or maybe what about a compact pickup with a turbo 1.6 litre diesel?  (Feb 20, 2014 | post #1)

Nissan Frontier Diesel

Why put in such a large engine? the best diesel would be a 2.0 litre 4 cylinder. It'd get way better mileage than that 2.8 litre V6 diesel. http://www.autospi es.com/news/CHICAG O-AUTO-SHOW-Will-C ummings-Diesel-Pow er-Finally-Give-Th e-Frontier-The-Edg e-It-Needs-80064/  (Feb 7, 2014 | post #1)

Chevrolet's new van aimed at Ford Transit Connect

what this van needs is the 2.0 litre diesel from the chevy cruze. It'd sell like hotcakes assuming it got 35 mpg on the highway. But god forbid GM or Ford sell cars that get good mileage like the Europeans models do.  (Feb 7, 2014 | post #1)

Bring back the F-100!

Ford would be better off dropping the aluminum in the F-150 and resurrecting the F-100 and making it a unibody. Not everyone needs the capability of the F-150. Plus without the frame it would get great gas mileage with a 2.0 litre diesel engine. http://www.4wheels news.com/ford-plan s-a-13-week-downti me-at-f-150-produc ing-sites-to-prepa re-for-alumi/  (Feb 1, 2014 | post #1)
