    FreedMike, The market for midsize wagons isn't dead, it's just been renamed 'the crossover market'. Egad, I saw a couple of Venzas on the road yesterday...what are people thinking? The new CAFE regs at least give wagons a fighting chance. But as long as there are suckers out there who will pay an extra $10K for a crossover vs. the same product with more glass and cargo space (i.e. a wagon), I don't expect much progress.

    Nah this isnt hard at all. Just like figuring out why the TB was canned.. the the Equinox is now just as big. Or why CUVS are as big as SUVS for GM. At my work.. there is one motto. Only thing ya can rely on.. is change itself. (The rest is a hunk of shit)

  • Kat Laneaux I get the point that Musk is making. I wouldn't want everyone to know my secrets. If they did, they could or would shout it out to the world. But then, if Musk certified certain folks and had them sign Confidentiality agreements, which would allow them to work on cars that Musk had made, that could allow others to work on his cars and not confine vehicle owners to be charged an arm and a leg for the service. It's a catch 22. People are greedy little buggers. If they can find a way to make money, they will even if it wrong. People...sad.
  • 285exp I have been assured that EVs don’t require maintenance, so this seems pointless.
  • Slavuta "The fuel-economy numbers are solid, especially the 32 mpg on the highway"My v6 Highlander did 31 over 10 hour highway trip
  • Aja8888 As I type this, my 4 months old Equinox's Onstar module that controls the phone is broken. Yep, 4 months (never worked right from day one). Replacement will be a REFURBISHED unit since no new ones can be obtained (from China?). I really don't miss the phone via Bluetooth. And I have a great Garmin that I have used for years for trips which has free lifetime maps and traffic.
  • Bd2 There's a reason why talented American execs have been leaving Stellantis in droves.Tavares seems intent in following "Le Cost Cutter" Ghosn into driving his company into the dirt, whilst "justifying" his ever expanding compensation.
