2012 Toyota Camry (Autoblog Canada)

Aug 23rd 2011 3:05PM Hmmmm. I can understand Toyota's desire to maintain their customer base, but...

The trouble here is that the bar is rising, with both the Kia Optima and the Hyundai Sonata each striking out at a different aesthetic. We're going to see a new Ford Fusion soon, too.

I think BOTH the Camry and Accord could be in trouble...

2012 BMW 1 Series leaks onto Internet ahead of Frankfurt reveal (Autoblog Canada)

Jun 5th 2011 3:32AM Interesting. Don't know where the "ugly" is coming from, because the current 1-series coupe is awful.

The back end looks surprisingly Golf-like, though.

How not to flip a car carrier back over (Autoblog Canada)

May 29th 2011 2:37AM Idiot.

And, yes, as Jake said, having an anchor point on the other side would definitely help.

Not absolutely necessary, though. A careful hand as the truck approached its tipping point may have kept it from going all the way over. If you notice, the operator gives the line a final jerk just as the truck is about to come over.

Why U-Haul won't rent you a trailer for your Ford Explorer (Autoblog Canada)

May 26th 2011 1:04PM "Every time we go to hire an attorney to defend a lawsuit, as soon as we say 'Ford Explorer,' they charge us more money."

OMG that's funny...

Next-gen Mercedes-Benz S-Class to come in four flavours (Autoblog Canada)

May 17th 2011 2:24PM Ooooo... CL-Class cabrio...

Yes, I think I actually WOULD prefer that to an SL...

Aston Martin configurator launches with Virage and Cygnet (Autoblog Canada)

May 15th 2011 9:36PM Okay, okay, so the whole idea for the Cygnet is goofy. I'll be the first to admit it.

I have to admit, though, I could almost go for one. I know that short of a major lotto win, I'll never own a Virage, but I conceivably COULD own a Cygnet, with its beautifully-detailed interior.

How far off is this from a Mini, anyway?

eBay Find of the Day: Chevy Citation trike can't decide which way to go (Autoblog Canada)

May 15th 2011 12:36AM Okay, this one is... wow...

This custom is clearly a labor of love. If GM, for some perverse reason, had decided to offer a Chev Citation trike back in 1980, you could imagine that it would look just like this. I'm not really sure what that means, but... wow...

Renault Twizy priced at $9,923* in UK, reservations begin (Autoblog Canada)

May 14th 2011 7:10AM These are remarkable numbers. For an AWFUL lot of households, there's a compelling business model (ยค65 a month to lease a battery? That TOTALLY works if you don't have to worry about replacing it!). I never would have believed that RENAULT, of all companies, would produce the the best value proposition for a real EV.

Within 3 years, someone will seriously offer this to the North American public.

Where big cats are made: A photo tour of Jaguar's Castle Bromwich plant (Autoblog Canada)

May 14th 2011 6:58AM Sorry, but the tour guide couldn't have been in charge of the manufacture of Nash Metropolitans.

The last full model year for the Metropolitan was 1962. There were a few hundred built for 1963 (less than 400) and that was the end of the line.

I swear, I wouldn't care, except that my Mom actually wound up owning one of of the rare '63s, and it was one of many vehicles I learned to drive manual in (&^#$@ 3-on-the-tree!)

Consumer Reports calls out six cars it says are worse than their predecessors (Autoblog Canada)

Apr 24th 2011 3:17PM ...I can't help but wonder if the new Civic would have been on this list had it been released a few months earlier...
