A few years ago, the NHTSA hit Fiat Chrysler with a huge fine because so few people have had their cars fixed after they were recalled.

December 5, 2018 David Zatz 0

Reports that cars are dead have been grossly exaggerated. The market for sedans and coupes is falling fast, but there are still hundreds of thousands of buyers in the United States. The #1 best selling car in America, the Toyota Camry, may be down by 9% from last year (year-to-date), […]

It’s the only heavy duty pickup with an independent rear suspension, giving it the best ride and handling in its class. It has an optional Cummins turbodiesel that many pickup buyers would get no matter what body is wrapped around it. And it’s trying hard to burst out of its […]

An electric Ford Mustang is coming, if a brief commercial placement is any indication. Robert S. Miller pointed us to this freeze-frame showing a blue Mustang grille emblem in the middle of a commercial.

Now we know why Nissan-Renault wanted Mitsubishi

October 18, 2018 David Zatz 0

Mitsubishi, known by some for their economy cars and by others for their sports cars, has done a surprising amount of work in hybrid-electric propulsion — which may (along with a bid for the #1 sales title) be why Nissan-Renault ended up buying into the small Japanese automaker. Some of […]
