Cadillac's problem is that their cars are what poor people think rich people would buy. Which is totally different from what those of means actually buy.

More Cadillacs sell on the basis of them...

This is why I love my S4. It has subtle rumble/shake at idle due to aggressive cam timings. Acceleration from a stop is smooth and torque is plentiful. I can hit 60 mph in 6 or 7 seconds without ever...

There's no reason to dump your Touareg because the damage to resale is already done. In fact, right now might be the worst time because of the market's volatile reaction to the scandal, meaning the...

Why does it matter what was purchased? A bad financial move is a bad financial move.

Don't rush from one bad decision into the next. A Q5 is still a pretty solid car; it's not like the RX is that much different.

Live with your car for the next few years and let it be a lesson to...

This is a bit silly of a statement considering the Camry does 0-60 in 5.8 seconds. V8 =/= speed.

If you go to a concert, is the sound "fake" because a speaker is transmitting the sound the guitarist is playing, and you're not hearing the "real" sound from the guitar? Is the sound engineer, who...

Maintenance is more costly than Lexus, but it's not considerable. If you purchase Audi Care, or negotiate into your deal, then most of your maintenance is covered.

OK, but 1) Jaguar has no 3 series competitor until this launches, and 2) people don't cross shop a 320i and a 335i/340i. I don't disagree with you but it's sort of a red herring. I'm talking about...

Looks looks like a phenomenal deal. This undercuts the 340i by $4,000 on base price, has a better suspension, handling is better even though it weights 100 lbs more, the same transmission but better...

Truth is, you're only going to add on total cost by making pretty much any option to refinance. If you were planning to buyout in 2 years, I would assume you have some cash on hand as a seed for...

OPEC has always been the swing producer. OPEC has only ever sold oil after every non-OPEC entity has sold every barrel of oil they could. What we're seeing is a power struggle to be the swing...

The physical answer to your query is "basic supply and demand economics". Gas in California is not fungible with the rest of the country, so when supply decreases (refinery issues), your price...

The power difference is not that extreme. I'm willing to bet this will run the 1/4 mile in about the same amount of time as the Mustang GT, which is somewhere around 13.0 seconds.

The STI is ~13.2...

4.88s seems quite terrible given that people were getting under 5s in 2nd gen. IS350 (with just intake and exhaust because there is no ECU tuning on that car).

I guess so. The base engine starts @ $18k, but if you're going for the larger engine, you might as well get the 6 for nearly the same price.

No one has mentioned the Mazda 3? You can get literally every option you'll find on an A4 or C-class or 3 series for $20-grand less (except for power, but the 184-hp I-4 is pretty solid).
