AeAe: I'm getting a kick because i just bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee.
vudukungfu: That's communism at the worst.
packman_jon: Anyone RTFA?Suppliers gave GM low marks on all kinds of key measures, including its overall trustworthiness, its communication skills, and its protection of intellectual property.So basically, their Tier 1 suppliers (the firms that sell parts directly to GM) hate them.
loonatic112358: Cyclometh: I love my Volt.Driven about 8 thousand miles, put gas in it three times. Drives great, handles well, gotten good support from my dealer for the few minor issues it's had like the outlet cover sticking, and is super comfortable.I want one, but I worry that It'll fit me like a clowncar
Flargan: LazyMedia: All of the competition is subsidized by their home countries. When a car company dies, you don't get more and better competition, you just get one fewer car company.^ThisI don't think people know how awful Toyota was in its early days. (They narrowly avoided bankruptcy and needed government support to put them back on track.)
The more you eat the more you fart: Gf has a 2014 Cadillac ATS and loves it...
bungle_jr: fyi, they paid it back
realmolo: bdub77: Tr0mBoNe: I can see it... most of their cars have the aesthetic styling of a pancreas.It's so frustrating that for a while the only semi-affordable EVs that didn't look like death traps were the Volt and the Leaf because I've never driven a Chevy I didn't hate within the first minute of stepping into the vehicle, the cabin is always poorly designed. Every time I step into a Toyota I feel like they built the car just for me. And with the Leaf it was merely an issue with distance - definitely a good commuting car but only 70 miles under less than ideal conditions is not good.Fords are kind of in between, and Nissans always feel great except for the fact I always feel they have high center of gravity and I could flip them in an instant.I won't have money to buy a new car for 3 years but then I'm definitely going with an EV or hybrid EV if it's within affordability - the Teslas are looking amazing.Or, if you really care about the environment, and our dwindling oil supplies, and all that stuff, you could buy a used car.I won't even get into the economics of buying a new car. Suffice it to say, a new car is pretty much the worst way to spend your money.
