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.

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.

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.

The best new cars make the best used cars. There's a reason Honda and Toyota have some of the best resale values.

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.

At this point if I were to buy American I would buy a Ford just for the fact they were able to fix themselves without bailout money provided by the Government. Honestly I agree with Search4Answers, in that resale value is a very big determining factor when buying a car. Take for instance the new 2010 Buick Lacrosse, GM thinks they are going to run out and compete with Lexus with this car when in fact they should be competing against Accord, Camry, and Fusion for volume sales, especially with the decision to dissolve Pontiac. A base Lacrosse starts at $28,000, which is what you can get a fully loaded Accord for. Lacrosse is a nice looking car, I’ll give them that, but unfortunately it’s still a Buick, and we all know GM resale values are usually half the value in 3 years, meaning you’re stuck with the car for the term of the loan. Let’s face it, nothing says old man more than a Buick. That’s why GM has Cadillac, and the CTX should be the Lexus competitor. Man these guys don’t have a clue and the reason I probably won’t buy a GM car.

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.
