Thumbs down 10 cars detroit should copy...WTF?

What a tool this guy is...why should detroit have to copy anyone? Typical...He fails to list cars that Detroit already makes or are on the way, that are similar to the cars on the list.

(Fit): Okay we do need a great small hatch that's fun to drive and affordable But NOT made by toyota or wearing the destroyed Cobalt name.

(Tiguan): Thinking you can charge an entry level car at Premium prices. Yep. We should do that. idiots.

(Infiniti EX)(???) It's basically a G35 hatch. What's weird is- while it's a good idea, American's don't like hatches. (Sales booming in Japan while dwindling here.)

(Honda Insight): Ah yes, make another Prius competitor and hear the endless shouts of vaporware, and for Americans copying the Kamm-Back shape from the 1930's. IMO, I say we're better off without one.

(Audi A4)
Quote:
Yet strong engineering, slick interiors, and edgy design cues like the "eyeliner" LED lights that accentuate the headlamps have made the A4 a top-shelf alternative to more commonplace luxury sedans.
I guess the CTS doesn't have edgy design like Cadillac's heritage Vertical-stacked Tail Lamps or even carrying out a V-Shaped theme throughout the interior. I bet the interior isn't better designed than the A4's and also comes with more features....

(MX-5). Yes I agree after the death of Saturn and Pontiac, we need another fun small two-seater to compete with the Miata. Maybe some time GM will realize this.

(Volkswagen GTI)

it's a poor man's race car,

Quote:
The Chevy Cobalt SS is a GTI imitator, but it's based on a middling economy car and isn't nearly as refined. Keep trying.
Because the GTI isn't based on the Golf. IDIOT.

(Hyundai Genesis): We don't need 5-series features at a 3-series price, but the CTS takes care of that. (though it may be a few inches smaller)

(Subaru Forester) Chevy Equinox is bigger, faster, better looking, gets more MPG, and costs only about 2K more. Who'd pay 2K extra for a better car?

Thanks tagline, you pretty much summed up what I wanted to say...I just didn't feel like typing all that.

Seriously since when has an A4 ever been considered "top-shelf" or "luxury". I guess they no longer offer the performance 1.8L engine

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

Suburu Forester is the designated driver's party wagon; the buddy who gets volunteered to drive you and your stoned friends back from Dead concerts.
