Just want to clarify because I and other Cars.com staffers were on the thread, that we pay our way for airfare and hotels and don't accept gifts either. Items like a pen and notepad are acceptable. I'm not stating that as a slam at journalists who do take the trips, just want to clarify it for the record since the… » 12/12/14 5:20pm 12/12/14 5:20pm

So the Accord, Camry, Fusion, Altima, Sonata, 3 Series, C-Class etc. are all doing poorly? Or is there just more variety in the market? Those sedans still exist and sell well. Automakers' ability to offer more varieties of 4-doors is what's new. Kia just came out with two new sedans in the past year (although they… » 5/02/14 3:30pm 5/02/14 3:30pm

If you look closely at VW sales the decline can almost all be attributed to Golf sales. There aren't many current gen Golfs on lots and the new one is coming in a few months. Even if it doesn't set the world on fire a new Golf should push VW into the positive. Now, if they only could figure out SUVs... » 4/02/14 9:59am 4/02/14 9:59am

Like we said in our post on this, Matt's right, the 303 number is meaningless until you can tie it to the recalled ignition switch. There are many reasons airbags may fail to deploy. What any good journalist would do and the Center for Auto Safety did not do, was take a comparable car/s from the same timeframe,… » 3/14/14 10:02am 3/14/14 10:02am

The point of most of the turbo fours tested isn't to do better than a NA four cylinder it's to replace a V-6 in the lineup like in the case of the Sonata and Escape. I haven't read the CR piece yet but I would hope that was mentioned. » 2/05/13 2:55pm 2/05/13 2:55pm

I'd say the White Sand Beige on the 2011 Kia Sorento I reviewed. I have to think the negatives I had to say about this paint color in the review and video are the reason it is no longer offered on the 2013 Sorento. http://www.cars.com/kia/sorento/2011/expert-reviews/ » 10/04/12 1:45pm 10/04/12 1:45pm

Hopefully you're not seeing this as rampant on Cars.com. I just did a search for all used BMW 3 Series in the country, 19,436. It looks like 8 are showing up as FWD. I'll forward your concerns to our product team though especially since there are a few hundred "unknown" drivetrains. We list drivetrain in our… » 6/26/12 12:26pm 6/26/12 12:26pm

If Autoblog's reviews had more punch and actually made a call on if the car was good or not it would be a stronger site. They could also cull like 20% of the posts for a better experience. I think the model of so much content is over. But who knows. » 9/29/11 4:35pm 9/29/11 4:35pm

I have a feeling PJ20 out next month will overwhelm any financial numbers. Whether Cameron Crowe's rock doc will be "better" than Senna I'm not sure. I'll admit, I just casually watch F1, will I like this movie? And when is DVD release expected? » 8/16/11 1:37pm 8/16/11 1:37pm
