I own a car with a dual clutch transmission and have driven a variety of cars with conventional automatics that allow gear changes. They're barely on the same planet in terms of operation. In my DSG, the shifts are crisp and immediately, very much like a manual operated by someone who's always attentive and precise.… » 7/22/14 4:33pm Yesterday 4:33pm

Millennials will see through Campbell's bullshit, but only because they don't represent the kind of brand they find appealing. Instead, they'll buy into whatever bullshit some SF-based company is selling because it's compatible with the lifestyle they think they represent. » 7/22/14 12:19pm Yesterday 12:19pm

The mistake most people make is that chipping a car gives you cheap, reliable power. Visit the forums and you'll find post after post of some components failing on chipped cars. That's when it's easy, because some guys are endlessly chasing gremlins and have resigned to perpetually lit CELs. » 7/21/14 4:40pm Monday 4:40pm

I didn't know Ford still made these; I haven't seen one in ages. I'm not looking forward to Ford rekindling the market for this pig. We don't yet another one of these monstrosities lumbering across America's parking lots, driven by incompetents who can't handle the size, bashing into our regular sized cars. » 7/17/14 8:26pm Thursday 8:26pm

This actually makes sense. It was a dumb move to get into this business at all given the staggering costs associated with producing and marketing movies and TV shows. I'm not even sure how they ever even intended to compete with the likes of Sony, Amazon and the rest. » 7/17/14 5:30pm Thursday 5:30pm

The rest of the car isn't too bad, but that front end is horrible. It looks decidedly low rent, like some cheap European econobox, and like something from the late 90s at that. I don't think this is the look you want from a car that commands a premium over that class of cars. » 7/16/14 10:59am 7/16/14 10:59am

I don't get it either, but there are some seriously spoiled kids out there. Visit any college campus and you'll find tons of undergraduates driving $30k to $60k luxury cars. Even many of the more inexpensive cars you'll see are practically new meaning they're pushing $15k to $25k. They get these cars just so that they… » 7/16/14 10:53am 7/16/14 10:53am

When Americans don't get SUVs they want cars that look sporty. This is evidenced pretty well by the success of the Kia Soul. Sure, the Kia is quirky, but it's offered in a safe package that leans towards sportiness whereas the Cube embraced it's weirdness. » 7/15/14 8:19pm 7/15/14 8:19pm
