I'm not so sure I completely agree with Templin's thoughts. In fact, they sound like defensive excuses in light of newly successful competitor models. Other brands do very well selling cars like...

It's not wise of MBZ to price it high, it's pure greed. Hiding the base 2WD models in the beginning is a bold and obvious move to sucker in those who can't wait. If that's the case, let the...

Yet another heavier AWD model producing faster 0-60 times than it's lighter 2WD counterpart. Most interesting trend emerging lately with AWD cars despite the added weight. Must be the...

This is mostly related to the last Jetta and Passat being a shade too bland and boring. We were used to some very bauhaus and dynamic sedans, but the current dumbed-down ones brought everything...

That 8-speed should be standard on all truck engines. Typical chinyzy trickle-down. What better and easier way to gain ground than to just make it standard, like it's going to be anyway in a...

Don't get your hopes up about it looking like any Audi. Chevy is stuck in the 60's and 70's with their dated, bar-through-the-center of grille look. This prominent feature is holding their entire...

The rear slope could be part of the disguise. Many of today's disguises also add a fake shape to the body.

To the above poster, Hyundai is (sadly) sticking with the sloping top and no trunk...

It's too soon for a new Malibu. I can see another facelift (already had an premature emergency one), but four years is throwing tooling money down the drain.

My mom's highly maintained 2005 MDX also blew it's transmission at 100k. If there was any sort of class action lawsuit for the MDX, we never heard about it. She wrote a letter to Acura just to...

Explorer was all new for 2011, but has yet to receive a facelift. Running behind schedule.

Nice car! You'll enjoy the Explorer. It's a hot SUV right now here in CA. Even the police and highway patrol are getting in on the act.

I would still point to the Highlander if reliability is tops on your list. The MDX is solid too. New Honda Pilot should debut in a few months and that could also be another consideration. ...

Credible review and hybrid effort. However, I can't think of any premium brand releasing a current 0-60 in 9+ second car (other than Lexus's own CT). If not for buyers themselves, but for all...

Tough call. It sorta has more of a luxury look, yet the size makes sense for a CRV. Also note the front wing window. Does Lincoln have something smaller coming out? Ford (none planned),...

What could it be?

Caught this going through Will Rogers Beach yesterday. Looked to be a shade smaller than mid-sized. Note the sideview mirrors, rims, and rear window shape.

That of course is true. Then the pricing problem lies with too many options bundled with the nav. The car goes from affordable to another class. Poor marketing in my opinion. I see this...

I'd have to give it an overall thumbs up from what I've read. The power and fuel economy trade-off meets a nice compromise. However, the front end is most certainly unattractive. There is no...
