Doesn't that happen on a regular basis though? Usually destined for the middle east?

Hey Fen when will the new Colorado hit the showroom? I asked because I just saw a commercial for a local dealer and as pictures if the new Chevys scrolled across the screen one if the new Colorado was mixed in with them.

I think reveal will be in November but they probably won't show up until sometime next year.

Tour works fine as a relaxed, eco-minded mode, but sport is a little too sporty, locking the transmission in lower gears for far too long as the engine, which is heard partly through the car’s audio system as a recording, wails at high revs. The sportiest modes should be called “track” and “track , seriously.”

Weren't people making fun of the Mustang for doing this? Why would GM do that with the CTS?

Fen, a friend is looking to get a 2013 Malibu... mainly due to 2500 dollar incentives. Do you have the skinny on the two engines offered? I am liking the 2.0 litter turbo... mainly cause of the HP.

The 2.0T is a really good engine. I'd recommend it as well.

If he's looking more for efficiency then I'd go with a '14 2.5L.

I was reading the Motor Trend artical on the Spark EV. They seemed to like the fact it had 400lb-ft of torque and 140HP. If they sold them around here I would consider one.

I thought ford used a tube from the intake to the firewall? As for the vette maybe the cabin noise has become so quite that you have a hard time hearing the exhaust? Better build quality maybe?
