      This. Honda expects dealers to hold profit on the Si, Type-R, Odyssey and Ridgeline.

      Holy, you lucky SOB! I second whoever said put a Lojack on that.

      ...where do you live? Around here, old Lexuses are driven by old people. They're probably the same personalities that would buy a Camry and keep it for 10 - 15 years (dents and all), but want...

      I think Canadians are going to be in for some sticker shock. A base RDX starts at $43,000 CAD. A poverty spec 330xi is $53,000 CAD. Acura has been very clear that they no longer want them to just be...

      Sure, but they stopped--for a long time. You can buy a Z that is 8-9 years old and it's mechanically identical to a new one on the lot. That's lazy.

      If they got lazy and let it sit, then it's not the LX approach. The LX approach was major refreshes followed by constant, engine, transmission, interior and exterior updates.

      Awesome!!! I can't wait to see more N cars from Hyundai. The Koreans are killing it lately.

      Honest question: if they are hoots, why not spend a bit of money over the years setting up the Z and Q60 properly? The LX platform approach makes a tonne of sense for a company under financial duress...

      LOL. The same VW Group that made that sexist UK AD, or thought "we can cheat and gas monkeys and no one will give a ****"? I needed a good laugh. Thank you.

      I'm hearing the Type-S is not eligible for the Employee Associates Program at launch, yet the Type-R was. Honda...you make no sense.

      That and the Charger is realistically in a class of 1. I would've given the SS a hard look, but oops, they didn't even offer it in Canada. No one else makes a full-sized, RWD sedan with powertrain,...

      There are dozens of us! In all seriousness, you are right that the people carting market has more or less moved on to SUVs. Having said that, I don't care how good SUVs get or how much people say...
    14. LOL. Oh wait, you're serious.

      LOL. Oh wait, you're serious.
    15. Thank you. This is very well said. I will also...

      Thank you. This is very well said. I will also add that VW has a history of behaviour that suggests their corporate culture is very insular. From the outright cheating on testing, to the horrific...

      They're a new "FWD platform" in a similar way to the MLB. They are designed from the ground-up with SH-AWD and the goals of the RDX in mind vs. having to modify the CR-V or Accord. Unfortunately,...

      I agree and I think that's reflected in the sales successes of the Mustang and Challenger. GM tried to chase the M4 with the Camaro (with zero regard as to what makes the M3/M4 so desirable) and were...

      It's not worth the expense for a sedan. The RDX is already a huge success and quite a few of their competitors are FWD-based (Q5, XC60, Macan). The MDX was also extremely successful for Acura. The...

      Packaging, technology and cost. Yes, there are brand new platforms for the RDX (and soon MDX), but all their engines, transmissions and drivetrains are setup for for FWD-based applications (except...

      Ehhhh, I wouldn't go that far. For some reason, their 4-cylinder turbo engines are miserable, the LF3 had some serious reliability issues and the Blackwing was panned for weird tuning (TT V8 with...
