    Where are the 30 or so instantaneous f^#*king comments about the "Gillette" grille, huh? I mean, yesterday everyone seemed to be using talking points for the new Honda Pilot saying that it had nothing but Ford's Gillette Razor grille (which of course it does not). But now here is a MEGA copy of Ford's "Aston" grille and "Gillette" grille morphed into one, and nary a peep. As usual, Honda, Acura, Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, and Infiniti continue to be bashed incessantly for every design detail on this site, and Hyundai, Mazda, Kia, BMW, Merc, and select others get a complete pass on their... ahem...

      @Corey Lewis I don't know about your area, but when I see Elantras around the Chi, they all seem to be well cared for. Haven't seen a rolling wreck yet. And they don't seem to be bad drivers either ... and while they may cost less than some other cars in their class, they ain't being given away by NObody, dude. As far as style goes, I'll give it the nod over the Sentra and the Corolla.

    Kind of makes me wish that they brought back the Elantra Touring, though this "Golf"-like Elantra is cool. Not much more than the current model.
