    It always gets a little tricky. As Yogi Berra said, it's hard to predict, especially about the future. My guess would be prices will be a bit lower in a couple of months but I don't think they'll be...

    If you want a Model S this would be the way to go. Even better would be a four year lease.

    Accepting free use of a Tesla was not a good idea. Definitely did not meet the standard of being above reproach. But in today's world, where Governor Christie brags about "squeezing all the juice out...

    I think we need to cut the OP some breaks. When you buy what is presumably a luxury car you have, and should have, somewhat different expectations. I'd also say that if Cadillac is going to succeed...

    As you can tell from the detailed responses, not many differences. I'd think the warranty is the biggest difference. Hold Mode is nice. Everything else is relatively minor.

    Toyota sells about 40K Camry hybrids a year. But Toyota is known for hybrids so it has a big mindshare. GM has roughly zero mindshare when it comes to hybrids, and, as a consequence, I think GM will...

    GM is just so out of touch. This is so completely brain dead, it's hard to know where to start.

    No doubt this has way way way more to do with the Chinese than Tesla -- or at least you have to...

    Yeah, this kind of thing can be fun from time to time. Most drivers aren't professionals and they can lose a lot of time when shifting. It's why the Model S is so much fun for people. You don't need...

    No doubt using the same transmission and, in the case of the CT6, the same battery, is a brilliant strategy. However, in the short term there won't be that many sales of the Malibu hybrid and the CT6...

    I had similar problems. We had a scratch, a piece of trim on the drivers side was misaligned, and the carpet on the sides of the center stack had glue coming out of the seams. We also had the center...

    My guess would be the incentives would be for the CARB states. If GM needs the ZEV credits it's probably cheaper to discount a ZEV vehicle than to buy the ZEV credits. Sales outside of the CARB...

    I don't think I've ever experienced this so I'm going to say it's abnormal, though it might be that I'm not as sensitive to it as some others.

    That said, it wouldn't hurt to take it in since at...

    The artificially high resale was the reason I didn't want to lease. It actually hurts in two ways. One is that, as you've found out, you really don't want to buy the car even if you do want to buy...

    I think it's a fair and insightful look at what's been wrong with GM marketing the Volt. The ads and marketing for Chevy trucks are quite good, but not great for cars and absolutely abysmal for the...

    I think 150 kW is roughly right. The new pack has more NMC, but, while NMC gives you greater energy density, it doesn't have any greater power density than the LMO it replaces.

    You could question...

    The problem started with the worst roll out imaginable. They put the spec sheet and price sheet out three months before anyone actually got to drive the car, which allowed the whole meme of "it's...
