Truth be told, I stopped visiting edmunds.com regularly at least a couple years ago, after the site underwent some changes (more closely integrating the carspace forums with edmunds.com). This had two effects: (1) the relatively small group of edmunds.com regulars was now inundated with people from carspace, such that my interaction with the editors, photographers, vehicle testers, and contributors was diluted; and (2) I was required to re-login every time I wanted to comment on something. I enjoyed reading the new long-term road test blogs every day, but now these are infrequently updated. I enjoyed reading new news articles every day to keep up with the latest auto industry happenings, but now all I see are the same recall notices. It sounds like you'll only continue to narrow the scope on those two items. . . .
I don't make any claim to represent your typical reader. I still use edmunds.com for research, but now instead of your site making up 90% of my research, it's now shared fairly equally with cars.com and CR, and a little KBB and C&D. You have a business to run, for sure, and if the majority of your internet traffic is people deciding which car to buy, that's the direction you have to go. Still, I sometimes find myself pining for a caption contest, or a contributor soliciting reader input, or subtle Star Wars references, or Takahashi in a trunk, or similar - just some playfulness and interaction.
I think I could convince my wife to let me buy this same car.
"Like Millenials, they lack depth and the ability to hold on to anything for long periods of time." It's funny because it's true.
"Also, the windshield washer fluid was low, so I added a gallon of fluid to that reservoir. It cost two dollars."
As slick as an Evo would be performance-wise, I'll stick with my Focus ST. 85% of the performance for 60% of the price.
