It's a little disappointing that Ford is going the electric power steering route. My fiance had a Cobalt in college with the electric assist, and while it was super easy to manipulate, it created no feel at all.

Yes, Chevrolet -- please get that Z28.

Prolly just waiting for Whitacre to get the company back on the stock market and in the black again before pushing that car.

CTS-V and coupe will probably be low volume vehicles and can eek by at the moment.

As for the electric power steering thing; dullards gotta be able to drive their fast cars without becoming statistics ya know.. <_<

And we know who makes up a good chunk of the Mustang customer base..

Eh..my G5 has the electric steering..and while it takes a little while to get used to..I love it.
Plus it has the added bonus of not having power-sucking hydraulics.

Better do something with the GT500. The 2011 GT350 is crap and costs about the price of 2 Camaros SS's.

The GT350 is a Shelby vehicle -- like Hennessey or SLP. Ignore it.
