“These are incredibly unusual times,” GM Chief Executive Officer Rick Wagoner said today at the 100th anniversary celebration of Harvard Business School in Boston. “All the sudden, somebody blows the whistle and credit stops flowing. It really requires you to say, `Let’s think about this business one more time.'” Oh, go on then…

    By the time the Caliber was introduced, the dealership was closed. I drove a Caliber as a rental last summer in Minnesota (it spent most of it's time parked while I canoed over the border in Canada, but still...). I thought it was OK. I didn't like the restricted visibility in the rear...in particular the vertically-restricted visibility, but that was my only major complaint from the rental. It felt solid at real highway speeds, which is often not the case with "fleet queens". I'm not saying I'd buy it...without AWD CalTrans would require tire chains in the Sierra snow, while they wave me past as soon as the see the Subie logo. But it's decent enough. Getting back to the subject of Robert's post...any port, I mean excuse, in a storm...

    Can anyone confirm Canucknucklehead's claim of "push vs pull" (D3 vs Transplants)? I was not aware of this...but it does seem to make sense, based on how the D3 discounts cars every day of the year, and the transplants don't.

    I like the Caliber with the right wheels. Haven't driven one and b/c I buy cars at 100K miles I won't consider a Chrysler product. Don't know many that last much longer. Can't slam them too hard though b/c the Chrysler owners I've known were mere mortal consumers and not necessarily the type to really care for their vehicles. Not a comment about Chrysler customers, just a comment about the ones that I know. Who knows how long they would last given a good owner.
