    very disappointing with the MPGs of the Volvo. Looking at them last week while my car was in the shop.

      The XC90 gets 20/25, vs. 16/22 for the Q7 and 17/21 for the GL. What were you expecting?

    If that was the most exciting car there, I'm glad I didn't spend the time, effort or money to attend the show.

    Two many doors (and too high a tail).

    We checked out a row of new Civics this weekend. The first words out of my friend's mouth was "it looks like one of the ugly Crosstour's in the back. The base plastic hubcaps look terrible and the interior was both cheap and odd, especially the fake cloth covered center console and the lowest supply bidder carpet. Mileage ratings were impressive enough at 41 highway for the 2.0 and 42 for the little 1.4T. The prices seemed reasonable at a little over 20K for the base sedans and around 22 for the EX with moonroof.

      @Pch101 He's jealous because the Civic beat out the Malibu.
