If Sergio and Ralph shut down Chrysler's Nascar program I will be very disappointed. Since I bleed Hemi orange I will deal with it.
Rami Wilson Mar 03, 2012
I'm glad to see Chryslers numbers are up. I'm still a little down today. I was excited yesterday as I put the finishing touches on the 440 Magnum for my '73 I learned that Penske will switch to ford next season.

Good to see they're making a comeback. I've seen about a dozen new Chargers and 200s in my little po-dunk town

Hi. I'm a period. I'm looking for my friend Clayton. Have you seen him?
Shane Gardner Mar 05, 2012
Why is this considered a political issue, GM didn't sell many cars compared to Chrysler (who also got bailed out) because Republicans did or said something? Can't be any particular issue with the GM lineup at all.
Clint Edwards Mar 03, 2012
Many republicans blindly follow what politicians say? No Clayton, that's 90% of all people
Shane Jansen Mar 03, 2012
What's republicans have to do with the sales of different types of cars? You liberals are so ignorant.... Yall are lucky Obama gave GM all your tax dollars to otherwise it wouldve died

Chrysler is looking much better these days. The 300 is a nice car. I like the transformed design looks a bit more refined now.
Ryan Douglas Hie Mar 04, 2012
PJ: I've never owned an Audi, only coveted them. I have read in Consumer Reports and on Edmunds that they aren't as reliable as many other companies. Their re-sale value tends to back that up. Also, a friend of mind had an A4 that dumped it's trans.
Henz Herrero Mar 03, 2012
Well just think this.. Average joe will get a 300 but if youre making bank, theres no way ud get a 300 rather than an a6..
Patrick Joseph Mar 03, 2012
Ryan. What do you know about audis reliability? You heard that from a friend of a friend who's got a garage? They are actually very reliable.
Extremis Colson Mar 03, 2012
I just rented a Chrysler 300 last week and it was beautiful, remote start, heated seats, satellite radio, surround sound system. at first it was a bit to big for my taste its a nightmare on congested roads Damn car too wide but with a lil finese its a smooth ride!!!
Ryan Douglas Hie Mar 03, 2012
I'd take a 300 over an Audi if I was paying because Audi doesn't score high in reliability. Audi's are definitely more beautiful inside and out though.
Patrick Joseph Mar 03, 2012
I agree that for the money the 300 is ban better It's like the gtr of luxury. But the a6 is still a little better. There's no way I'd take a 300 over an a6. However if I wanted pretty much the same features without breaking the bank I'd go for a 300
uptown Mar 03, 2012
This is the best luxury car you can get for the money.
Patrick Joseph Mar 03, 2012
Tony. You're out of your mind. This over an a6? What the hell are you on. For the money it's nice. But there's a reason the a6 costs more. It's better.
Shane Heid Mar 03, 2012
Nope not really you troll
Matt Piccolo Mar 03, 2012
It's okay, but for the money their are nicer cars
Pfc Tomb Mar 03, 2012
Great cars. We deliver these on a big rig and from what I know if them they are great cars.
Shane Heid Mar 07, 2012
Because your a douchey troll on every American car so I take the liberty of trolling your favorite car as often as I can
Colby Church Mar 04, 2012
@Patrick What GM vehicle are you referring to? Last time I checked, they have the best looking cars all around, entry level and luxury. Buicks look fantastic and luxurious now, and Cadillac looks phenomenal. Chevrolet also looks badass, sooo....?
Matt Piccolo Mar 03, 2012
@ tony, u are correct when u say this looks like a bently compared to a supra cuz IMO, bentlys are some of the ugliest cars on the road... They perform well and i totally understand why people buy them (for their performance) but they are way to bulky and just plain ugly
Matt Piccolo Mar 03, 2012
@ Shane wtf do u have to bring up a supra every time I say something
Ryan Douglas Hie Mar 03, 2012
Boring. The Passat looks marginally better.
Phillip Coy Mar 03, 2012
Bentley next to a supra? I don't know about that. People will take a second look at a supra way before they make a second glance at this.
Igor Natsioks Mar 03, 2012
I think it looks good. Simplicity is key. Most of the new cars look like blown up fishes, with too many rounded edges, bulgy lights, and tumors.
Devin Babyn Mar 03, 2012
Jetta's ugly and bland as hell but you can't deny they're a great car
Patrick Joseph Mar 03, 2012
It's not that bad then. It's not like you said boring like a GM.
Shane Heid Mar 03, 2012
Ya boring like a supra
Matt Piccolo Mar 03, 2012
Nothing special.... Pretty boring
Josiah Thomas Clements Mar 03, 2012
My dad has the overland summit and wow is it nice!
Paul Lissona Mar 03, 2012
I drove a v8 one of these new and it handles nice and was very powerful.
Patrick Schalk Mar 03, 2012
I want an Overland GC so bad. You talk about nice AND capable.
Shane Heid Mar 03, 2012
Whole thing is amazing, only the most awarded suv ever no big deal
Matt Piccolo Mar 03, 2012
Not a fan really, th fronts cool but the rest is boring
Pfc Tomb Mar 03, 2012
Best damn SUV out there. I'll take the SRT!
Paul Lissona Mar 05, 2012
Yah toyotas usually have horrible lack of handling, like camrys etc. Hondas are usually somewhat sporty and German cars, or European ones the best handling.
Aaron Snyder Mar 04, 2012
I love my VW! I find the Toyotas to be boring and more for the older crowd(senior citizen). Scion to be immature. Honda used to have design and actually changed the models completly (civic, 7 years and thats the best they could do?). And Hyundai I'd rather slit my wrist in shark infested waters then ever drive those.
Patrick Joseph Mar 03, 2012
That's true. You cannot hate on them unless you have no clue what they are really. VW isn't perfect. But they offer a brilliant driving experience. The drive is so different from anything else.
Patrick Schalk Mar 03, 2012
I like the CC a lot and the Tiguan/Toureg. I think VW makes some pretty solid automobiles. You can't hate the GTi and Scirocco. It's impossible.
Patrick Joseph Mar 03, 2012
Pointless arguing with people who never drove the cars I mentioned. The r32 for instance is probably the most fun to drive in its category. You get as much fun driving one as an rs4.
Matt Piccolo Mar 03, 2012
Tony, those r all lux or super cars bud, and they don't make the phaeton anymore... And for all the vw's listed, they ma not be horrible but aren't the best in their classes so they don't really make anything special IMO
Patrick Joseph Mar 03, 2012
You're insane Zachary. Go test drive an r32 or even a gti. It'll change your opinion on VW. Not to mention the scirocco. The corrado. The Tiguan. The Touareg. The jetta with a vr6.
Zachary Fix Mar 03, 2012
VW suck the only good car they ever made was the original beetle
Patrick Joseph Mar 03, 2012
It's nothing special. But how are it's competitors more interesting look wise? The only reason why I'd say it's looking more and more boring is because they try to make it less German and more American.
