A BioDiesel Plugin Hybrid, That is what would make me consider buying.

I have a 2008 Toyota and Chevy Silverado, so will not be buying this year. But I did help my daughter do her research on her next vehicle and she chose a Honda CRV. We drove and inspected them all and the Honda was clearly the best, had good ratings and we obtained a good deal by using the internet. BTW, GM and Ford dealers need to get rid of their attitude. Talking down to a buyer and trying to convince the buyer to switch to another vehicle on their lot is not the way to win over a customer. My daughter was clearly offended.

I have benefited from GM and I will continue to support GM with my new vehicle puchases . I have found their vehicles to be durable and problem free .

GM has put many millions of dollars into the economy of The Mahoning Valley . May they prosper and put many more millions into our economy .

If I purchase a vehicle it will be another Ford truck. The majority of truck buyers haven't been stupid for the last 30+ years!

Ford is the only one that decided to address their problems themselves instead of letting the tax payer bail them out. That tells me which manufacturer has a clue! Their sales and stock price reflect that. Happy to be the owner of a few thousand shares.

I haven't bought a brand new vehicle since the mid 80s. Brand new is way too expensive for my budget. Have to buy them 2 or 3 years old when I do buy anything. 25 or 30 grand for a new vehicle is ridiculous.

Got to agree with you peacelover, I usually buy one year old vehicles. I let someone elses big ego take that first year hit.

My daughter walked into a well known dealer on Market Street in Boardman prepared to purchase in cash a new car. The salesman greeter her with "Hi Sweetie" She informed him just how ignorant she thought him to be and walked right out of the store. She drove to Hubbard and closed the deal that same day. It is time the car industry solved that condescending "salesman" persona once and forever.

Got that right, redvert. I have enough expenses with two out of my 3 kids in college. Number Three will be going in 2 years. They all have jobs, and contribute, but still..... I'll let some one else break that new car in for me.

Have you seen the ratings on the new Chryslers and Jeeps?

I used to have a 2000 Jeep Wrangler and it was fun to drive, but the new ones have Chrysler bodies and engines.

I hear one of the reasons Fiat bought Chrysler is because they had the Jeep line. The other reason is Fiat needed a dealership network in the US. Can we expect to see new Jeep's and Chryslers soon? You betcha...so that is why no one wants to buy Chrysler right now.

The new Jaguar and Porsche sedans look nice. I have never owned a Toyota and since the news on recalls I never will...I believe Toyota hid reports on the gas pedal sticking.

Jaguar is no longer owned by Ford. They sold it to Tata, a company from India. Porche (by VW) has always made good cars, but they are expensive. That 4 door sedan is nice looking. Good eye candy.

My sister has a Camry and it has the little hook on the driver's side floor to latch into the factory floor mats to keep them from sliding. Wonder how many of these problems were due to not using a properly designed mat? More than a few I would guess!!!

Some car salesmen today do not respect the customer the way that they should. If you are a women you still don't get the respect that you deserve. Hi sweetie, and Hi honey show a total lack of respect. Good for you young lady who walked out of the Boardman car lot and went to Hubbard to make your purchase.

To those of you who voted other why don't you move to the other countries? Toyota no longer holds the top dog award. I worked at GM years ago and the quality wasn't that good. I'll satick to my Fords thank you very much. Buy American made by companies that HQ in America and lets keep our money here.

The Ford 2011 Fiesta will be a big seller...take a look at what you get for the low price...super mpg and navigation...

Honda insight is a excellent buy ... superior to the Prius.

Those born after 1990 are called the igeneration...just think what today's toddler will be driving.
