It can't all be the price. Most luxury cars, including Cadillacs are leased. And here in L.A., they lease for dirt cheap. Yet that hasn't seemed to make one bit of difference. Let's also be...

I believe the Caddies sit on the lot due to their still strange styling that does not mesh with current trends or speak to today's crowd. They get good mechanical and fundamental reviews (rightly...

This could backfire. All that time could get someone over the initial hype and come back down to a more practical sense. The majority of car sales have a high emotional factor built in. Once those...

VW is a mixed bag. I have a customer who owns a 2013 Jetta SE with the 2.5 and he hates the whole car. Says it's tinny and gutless. Then I've talked to another who loves his newer Passat. ...

Car & Driver just did an initial test and also came away very impressed. Perhaps if one can get past the sedate styling (I call it clean and modern), this is a hidden gem. I just hope they give...

CVT's I thought were declining, not gaining in popularity. Audi just dropped theirs and I recall another brand doing so as well.

It's ruined. Adding the lamented Acura shield to the grille will be a decision I will never understand. The pic above isn't so bad, but Honda's press release reveals the choked grille look.

From everything I've read thus far, the Qashqai (horrible name for America) seems too similar in size to the Rogue. I hope that doesn't mess with sales, as the Q looks pretty decent. If only...

Prices went up one dollar per gallon in two days here in L.A. We are now at $4.60/gallon for premium. Absolutely ridiculous and a record spike. The official word I'm hearing is there's a...

Haven't washed a car in twenty years. Water is the enemy and an aging accelerant. Wipe down regularly and there's no need to wash under most conditions.

Great memories. The announcer's voice truly had a big part in laying down the law for Lexus.
What really stood out to me back in 1990 was a 20-20-type show on tv that showed what today's...

I applaud these numbers and tests, but it's disappointing the A4 has lacked a U.S. diesel option all these years. We've been promised for the last two generations, but it has never come. I would...

One CA. tax expired and was eliminated last week. It was for an additional six cents. Did prices drop six cents at the pump? Of course not. Yet they did go up six cents when the tax was...

All modern Lexus's are reliable. There is no difference worth reporting. So do not worry about one being a dud.

All the models you listed for consideration are solid. I'd just make it...

That's exactly my point. They keep the reserves low on purpose so two days of extra traffic is suddenly something they cannot meet the demand for (?/!). Are reserves that fragile in CA that they...

I would expect these cars and this company to go down in history. It will be very interesting seeing which offerings they have thirty years from now. Hopefully some of us will still be alive by...

It happened again today. It's been very hot and humid here in L.A. and so far this latest batch has been during the heatwave. Has anyone else noticed the weather conditions when it happened to...

That's only a certain percentage of the total upcharge. If the price of gas here in CA was tallied up to include just the clean-air taxes and the cost of the special blends, we'd still only be a...

Who do we blame for it going up 5 cents overnight for the Fourth of July? Old Ben himself? Are we that busy of a nation to cause a gas shortage driving to Aunt Edna's for the holiday bbq? ...

It's different in CA. The price of gas does not reflect the price of crude. If someone sneezes, our price goes up. If there's a storm anywhere in the country, our price goes up. If there is...
