I assume because Lexus/Toyota doesn't want any quality hiccups in the implementation. They'll have it eventually but not until it works perfectly.

Count me in the disagree pile. Nothing about the 3-row current-gen Pathfinder even hints at off roadability. It's as soft as the others.

Nissan was actually just featured in an article saying they'll be using common parts in more obvious places globally. So this change makes sense.

The Maxima, Altima, and Murano are all on the Nissan D platform so its fair to say it comes from the Maxima roots as well.

I would like 4-matic, but would not want the associated weight gain.

Call it what you want. :) I will put money down that this will go over 3660lbs. when it hits C&D's scales. And to be clear, I never presented it as anything but a hunch.

Wowzas. I was not expecting this rear end treatment. I like it but definitely looks kind of odd at some angles...can't wait to see in person for further investigation.

Because I don't think the C450 actually weighs 3700lbs nor the C63 3660lbs.. We'll see- I'll wait for the C&D numbers for both models.

Great to hear it drives well, but it certainly lost some visual aggression from the last-gen. I wonder if the coupe is going to add some back in.

I think C&D is on the right track. The C63 will be the true porker here.

I really enjoyed the Q50 I borrowed recently. All the tech features worked too, so it looked like the bugs with the infotainment system have been worked out.

No car in that segment has waiting lists that long anymore. Touring convertibles aren't bringing in hot sales anymore-not even the Jag F-type. Guess what vehicles have huge waiting lists in that...

I just went back through the sales figures. The SL sold better in 2013 than it has since 2006. In 2014 it sold better than it has since 2008. The data has spoken. :) This all after the economy crash...

This is true. In regards to the current SL's sales- it's important to note that there's increased competition in that space and convertible sales in general have been slipping. The SL really doesn't...

Eh...the later models were more reliable, but bullet proof is a bit much. The 2003-2005 models in particular had a lot of issues. By now most things should've been addressed though. Some typical...

Already discussed above. He says he has a German mechanic friend that will take care of this. Also is it even possible to get an extended warranty on a 12 year old car?

I don't think Acura is trying to, or needs to be, much more than it is now. If they want to stay in the "premium" side of things instead of full-on luxury they're on the right path. As an aside- the...

Right, but I didn't think it'd be that obvious. I don't notice it nearly as much with some of VW's various MLB/MQB models.

Very interesting. They seem to have kept the front windshield and windshield wipers in the transformation from Mercedes to Infiniti.

They tend to get pretty accurate about 6-8 months before a car's reveal. Any more than that and you get crap like this. You're right though the Japanese magazines are hilarious.
