I just noticed that the bottom of the doors go far enough down to become the rocker moldings. That leaves the area where the back of my pants legs rub as I get out covered. It stays clean so no...

I did not mean the CT6 is not a great car. My point is the Johan insists on pricing it at a level too high for its current status. They may have repositioned it downwards, but they did not move the...

Camry sales in June were about 32000 compared to 28000 for the Accord. Hardly "crush" numbers. The Civic in June was at 31000, getting close to Camry numbers.

I just did a lot of testing before selecting a new RX350. The GLC is a lot smaller and so far only comes with a turbo 4 cyl. With similar equipment it is about the same price as the larger RX350. ...

My feelings exactly. White is popular here in Tucson, but makes the big grill and floating roof even worse. The dark blue hides both a bit. Plus, it is only hot here about 8 months or so.

The Highlander really doesn't match up very well with the Sorento particularly in the SXL trim. The Murano is even uglier than the RX without the pluses I see for the Lexus.
