truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomActually to be more accurate, the Ridgeline is identical to a Honda Pilot from the B-pillar forward; much like how the GMT900 Avalanche was identical to a Tahoe from the B-Pillar forward. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
truckofwinandawesome replied to Zane's topic in The GarageI agree; they must be waiting for enough trucks going in the same direction. with the amount of distance Baby Blue has to go, you can pretty much guarantee she's traveling by rail. (with the way Norfolk Southern works, they want a FULL train going east.)

truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The Newsrooma quick trip to the Local Dealership's website, and the VIN Code for China is "L"; The "L" probably stands for Lethal; as most Chinese built cars are. (cars like my Aveo, and the Spark built at the Bupyeong plant in Incheon, South Korea start with the Letter "K")
truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The Newsroomfrom what I gather, Spring Hill is at capacity building XT5s and Acadias (both LHD GMCs and RHD Holdens) as fast as they can; as well as the upcoming Cadillac XT6.
went to the link provided; and surprise surprise, its Carboagez; he marks up 50-100% OVER the retail price at Helm. for example he charges $322 (that includes shipping) for the service manual set for my Aveo; I got a brand new manual set from Helm for $244 including shipping! for my Mom's new (to her) Dodge Journey, Carboagez charges $220 a pop (that's with shipping included) for the repair CD; i got the Repair CD from CHRYSLER THEMSELVES (through their TechAuthority service) for only $163.46! (and that is WITH taxes and shipping included!) because of greedy jerks like Carboagez, its sometimes MUCH cheaper to go through the official channels to get service manuals!
From what Barra said a little bit after Ford made the announcement that they were cutting all of their car lines, GM has invested too much in their small cars to axe them now; and when gas prices spike again (and it’s not a matter of IF they will spike, but WHEN) ford will be scrambling to bring back their small cars. My Aveo might have been from the Bad Old Days at GM; but I get 29-30 MPG consistently, and that is WITH DTCs for Evaporative issues, leaking heater hoses, and a False P0420!

Ford charges nearly $50K for their NEXT TO BOTTOM trim level F150; you will pay nearly $50K for just the privilege of having a V8 Mustang, they want nearly $80K for an Expedition Max, and the biggest Super Duty has cracked the Six Figure Barrier! Something tells me that Ford is going to go into a panic when gas prices spike again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
As Steven Majoros once said in an interview, the Crossover is now king; mainly because safety regulations have turned sedans into hard to see out of pillboxes. And it also doesn’t help that boomers want vehicles with a high seat height and easy to see out of, something that crossovers do quite well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
You are the ONLY person to say something good about the new Blazer; everyone else has completely rejected it because it isn’t like the K5 Blazer. News flash: the crossover is now replacing the typical sedan and Body on Frame SUV! Everyone has forgotten about the Blazer/Jimmy of the 80s to early 2000s, and how small it was.

More than likely, Spring Hill is at capacity running Acadias and XT5s; and I believe Oshawa is at capacity building Equinoxes and it’s platform mates as well. And because they are sending Truck production to both Fort Wayne and Flint from Mexico, it gives the Mexican plant something to build. And now my reaction to the Blazer name being brought back: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
truckofwinandawesome replied to Zane's topic in The NewsroomUnfortunately, 3 little words are going to scare buyers away from the Envision: MADE IN CHINA. Let Oshawa or CAMI build them, and maybe sales will go up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The Newsroomthe problem that I see with iSeeCars study, is that they used Biased data from Import Reports; the Most Recalled list has over HALF the list filled with American cars (and the special contempt they have for Chrysler is shown glaringly with 4 of the 6 spots taken up by FCA vehicles) and the least recalled list is made up with mostly Asian cars (with Honda showing up the most at 3 times) and the only two American cars BOTH being on the GM Theta Platform.
truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI'm a Millennial and even I think Ford is making a huge mistake; because if nobody hasn't seen them yet, Gas prices are starting to creep up again!
GM Will Add 700 Jobs To Crossover Plant in Tenn. - Partly To Build Vehicles For Export - Guess Where To
truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The Newsroombasically, Holden is doing now, what Pontiac did towards the end of its life: Captive Imports.
