• Not the XF

    This is a picture of the next Jaguar XJ interior.As you can see, the are doing what they’ve been doing for many years now: the same interior design for all their cars.This will just look like a bigger XF interior.Which is OK. I sat in a couple of XFs and the interior is fine. Very… Continue reading Not the XF

  • Day 5. The little things…

    GM then and now. 30 years.Here are a few small annoying things I noticed about the Astra.All cars have them no matter what the price… When you only have 30 miles left worth of gas, the info screen goes into this default mode. Blocking any other modes. Like the radio.So you can’t adjust anything until… Continue reading Day 5. The little things…

  • Testing.

    The next Buick Lacrosse (Or whatever they’ll actually call it) is testing with much less camouflage on it.GM keeps hinting this car will be great. It will have a tough job competing with other cars like the Lexus ES.Buick’s image isn’t really the best….

  • New Seat???

    Seat might be getting their version of the small VW Up.And it might be a hybrid as well. Which means the VW version would also get a hybrid maybe later.The VW is scheduled for the US. That should be interesting….

  • Day 4

    To answer some questions:-The headlights are very bright at night.-No rattles or squeaks whatsoever. The car feels like a tank.-A slight lag in the gas pedal when starting from a stop. But that’s because the engine doesn’t have that much torque under 2000rpm.I have gotten used to it. Pushing it a little more. The car… Continue reading Day 4

  • I know, I know…

    You have seen these before.But they are still the most amazing pictures of the new Camaro. First, they are the only ones around showing the final headlight designs. All the prototypes caught on the streets still have the temporary set ups.And they are the only pictures of the production version of the gorgeous convertible.

  • Very Funny

    A commercial for the Euro version of the Aveo.Making fun of the Citroen C4 commercials… Below are some of the original Citroen spots:Enjoy…

  • A sad little man…

    Edward Smith makes Douchebag Jones look like Mother Theresa…. The world is a pretty sad place for some people….

  • Day 3

    The Astra is still looking good. Although no one ever seems to notice it.The “lack” of power doesn’t seem to be a problem to me anymore. I just don’t drive that fast.And the car still has that amazing tank feel. And the back seats are pretty roomy too.Especially for a coupe. For some reason, the… Continue reading Day 3

  • Inside…

    here is a picture of the new Kia Soul interior.And it seems pretty nice.Keep in mind this should be cheaper than the $15 000 Scion.I still think this should be a breakthrough car for Kia. Small, roomy, cool looking and fuel efficient. Their timing couldn’t be better….

  • G8 test drive video

    This took me a while.. I know… So here it is. The video version of my drive of the all new 2009 Pontiac G8. Both versions, the V6 and V8. Driven in the beautiful San Diego country side a few weeks ago….

  • Day 2

    This is actually my 1st full day with the new Astra. I took a drive to Malibu with it. Even though the weather was less than perfect. The car’s handling is really superior to most small cars on the market.Again, it has this great German solid feel to it.The steering as also really nice. A… Continue reading Day 2

  • Please give

    A special Mini for a special charity event. I’m not sure, but I think this is to raise money for AIDS research…

  • Renault Laguna Coupe

    Again, I think this is much better looking than the sedan. But I haven’t seen the sedan in person either…. I guess it’ll use the same Renault 4 cylinder engines, and the Nissan 3.5 Liter V6. (That should be fun with European gas prices…)

  • Got it

    I got my 3 door Saturn Astra today.For a week. I will try to report it every day, if possible.So far so good. It feels very solid and very well put together. Almost upscale. In a word: German. A few things I miss:-The sunroof. Not available on the coupe.-An armrest. Not available at all.-An iPod… Continue reading Got it

  • New Gol???

    The Gol has been VW’s entry level in Brazil for decades.And a new, redesigned one is due very soon. VW did mention will would get something smaller than the Golf in the US.It might turn out to be way to expensive to get the next generation Polo over here. I just wonder if the next… Continue reading New Gol???

  • 30 years ago.

    Some of us might remember 1978… Not much to say. Just enjoy the small time machine….
