    Audi Q8. Great proportions vs the Q7. I can see why it’s popular.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    Saw another E wagon on the highway this morning. I tried to catch up for maybe some brotherhood recognition, but I had to exit.

    I've also seen a ton of the big boy Subaru lately.

    I've seen a couple Ford Ecosport lately, more than I have seen before. Those small SWB CUVs still don't look right to me, like they are intended for a less developed market. Then again, given some socio-economics, maybe that's good planning.

    Weren't they originally for India?

    I think you may be correct, it has that or a China look to it.

    I’m pretty sure they originated in India.

    I like Chevys, lifelong thing the way other people like a sports team, and have had good service with them, but I just can't like the new Blazer. I think "Nissan" when I look at one, with the quarter panel kick-up. Made in Mexico, too.

    RE.: Your wife being a 'brand snob'; I am too, but a reverse-brand snob, LOL. I'm proud that the most I ever paid for a new vehicle was $24K and that was our '05 Uplander van. Our '19 Equinox LT was two grand below that. And I think that's too much money, LOL.

    Another Chevy I just can't like : Camaro. I've tried. I don't.

    On the other hand, I very-much like the C7 Corvette in base trim. A good buy too in that class I think.

    I read they take their last C7 orders on June 23.

    I agree that the Camaro is ugly and the Corvette is gorgeous.

    A BMW 228i. Looked older, like a 5-10 yo 3-series. Was this a 3 series with a smaller engine from overseas? Or a different series?
  • explorerx4explorerx4 Central CTPosts: 13,611
    My next door neighbor brought home a new A220 sedan.
    sat in the passenger seat to check it out a bit, seems nice.
    It's red, but almost exactly the same color as the 10 year old 3 series she sold, kind of amazing.
    I told her Mercedes really wanted her to buy one of their cars, so they made one in her color. :)

    Saw a new style G-Wagen on the road today, and yet another new Corolla.

    A red Civic Type R shined up to beat the band. Man, that wing is big.

    I’ve seen a couple new corollas. And a few altimas. Was expecting more of them, but might just not notice them.

    The other day in a parking lot I walked behind a new Camry - I think it was the top-line model, the XSE. White with a black roof IIRC. But since I went behind it I got to see those black things hanging down from the taillights.



    I was surprised to see they are apparently black plastic fake slit vents. They have louvers of a sort molded into them. Once again I am reminded of Nancy Kerrigan: "Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?" :'(

    The new Camry does have a sporty design, but those fake vents and taillight corners that look like the red broke off diminish the look.

    I was in Japan again two weeks ago and saw a number of US Camrys being used for taxi service. Mostly hybrids, but still a big car in Japan. I was a little surprised.

    Those aren't plastic slit vents, they are tears of joy B)

    Saw a Karma Revero on the road today, appeared to be an almost 50s looking pale blue color.

    Video of new Explorer being assembled, about 5-6 minutes long.

    My neighbor who bought the red A220, is now driving a black CLA
    After 5 days, SRS and service required popped up.
    So now waiting of some part.

    Have them call @driver100 and he can explain the many advantages to owning a Benz. That should make them feel much better. :D

    First year model might have a quirk here and there, breaking news?

    I am surprised at the very few A sedans I have seen on the road. But maybe not, given the CUV craze still in high gear.
  • tjc78tjc78 South JerseyPosts: 8,520
    Sedans just don’t sell.

    I was having a conversation with a guy at work about this the other day. If you want an SUV you have tons of choices, sedans are much more limited.

    At least they are discounted well.
