Used Vehicle Prices Dropped Four Months In A Row

How Far Have You Traveled To Buy A Car?

I tell car buyers all the time that the best deal maybe several hours away if they are willing to take the drive. Trying to get a deal on a Honda in NYC illustrated that it is worth going out to the suburbs to avoid the stealerships. But would you travel across the country to get exactly what you want? » 9/17/14 9:10am Today 9:10am

This Ridiculous Race Car Proves Even Clown Shoes Are Better With A V8

I'll be honest, I love German performance cars. It's something about their attention to detail and unrelenting power delivery that can't be beat. That is, until you slap a race-tuned American V8 powerplant in one, gut the interior, and paint it matte orange. Oh, and put it up for sale to us mere mortals. » 9/16/14 1:22pm Yesterday 1:22pm

Cadillac CEO De Nysschen: No, They're Not Gonna Get Cheaper, Shut Up

The current Cadillac lineup is full of cars that are every bit as great as the Germans they compete against, if not better in some cases. Their problem is that they're priced at the same level too, and buyers haven't seen them that way. Will that change under Johan De Nysschen, the CEO Cadillac poached from Infiniti? » 9/15/14 8:16pm Monday 8:16pm

Drunk Car Dealership Manager Wrecks Camaro Into Flaming Mess And Bolts

There's something almost impressive about the scale of drunken mess this manager of a Des Moines Chevy dealer is. Steve Luebke is 57, and normally is only allowed to drive a vehicle with a breathalyzer interlock. The dealership-owned 2010 Camaro he "borrowed" lacked such a device, and is now a smoldering ruin. » 9/15/14 4:36pm Monday 4:36pm
