the 10% ethanol hurts mileage. I changed to a K&N air filter and replaced the stock muffler with a pair of Magnaflow mufflers recently for my ATS 3.6. Just got back from Florida, a 3200 mile round trip and averaged justo ver 28 mpg. In May the same trip averaged 27.3. At one point the mileage average was 28.4, but I got a bit carried away. Oh well. Love my Caddy ATS.
So far as your indignation. I remind you that you called the CEO of GM a #$%$" which is absolutely hateful comment. And then you attempt to scold me? Then winona_wizard chimes in and calls me a "convicted pedophile"? I got news for the both you. I know my rights and count on this being pushed with Yahoo. Both of you just stepped in a warm pile of bovine fecal matter (you do know what that it?)
What? You might just find yourself in very, very serious trouble for defomation in a public forum. For the record - I am not a convicted pedophile who had the UAW help him avoid prison time. An Abuse compliant is going to Yahoo.
They don't just lock the doors - because #$%$ idiots like yourself would have absolutely nothing else in life to do but post #$%$.
I stand behind using the average tranaction price as shear volume numbers don't directly translate into profit values. The new Colorado and Canyon units will go out the door much closer to sticker because they're new and apparently a "hot ticket". Using the figures from previous posts - Ford did $2.27B in sales and GM did $2.56B in sales. That's from multiply units sold by the average transaction price of each unit sold.
And sadly enough they elected that "blowhard" Ted Cruz - now come on he's really a piece of work. He's got bigger balls and a bigger mouth than Rick Perry. And kisses the TeaPary's behind ever chance he gets (and then some). Greg Abbott is the hier apparent of Rick Perry - maybe. Wendy Davis keeps lowering his lead in the polls. She just might pull off another "Ann Richards". You guys don't understand what a closed little society truly exists out here in Midland TX. What all these "white bread" Republicans don't want to understand - Hispanics are out breeding everyone else and add 50,000 18 year olds to the overall population nationally EVERY MONTH. Midland even has their first ever Hispanic Mayor - a really good guy thank goodness. I find it overall a strong level of poetic justice that the Democrats will, most likely, field Hillary Rodham Clinton for President and Julian Castro for Vice President. The Democrats fielded and won twice with the first President of mixed race. And ultimately exposed the true reality of racial hatred which continues to exist in this country. Unless the Republicans wake up to reality (which isn't especially likely), we'll be virtually a one party system in about one more generation, give or take a year or two. Republicans cannot field a winning Presidential Ticket from present "possibles". Can't happen and won't happen. Hope I've offended every Republican and offer this - you'll get over it.
How true. One doesn't buy a "performance" vehicle for it's high possible fuel economy. Oh please. LOL Yet I'd much prefer a new Corvette with the 8 speed automatic. Let the "tree huggers" drive their Prii. LOL
During a recent service my Cadillac dealer's service dept checked 2 open recalls - found nothing needing repair - as I expected. I knew nothing needed repair - I was aware of the 2 very minor issues for the recall. This type service makes me even more confident in GM's commentment to safety and quality. Love my ATS even more than my 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP - which is an exceptional vehcile. A good friend bought the GXP and just absolutely loves it.
Bulk of the recalled vehicles consist of models no longer manufactured and many nearly 10 years old. GM's taken the problem to heart and increased their review of possible issues and notifying vehicle owners of the need for inspection. I consider this a positive program and support CEO Barra and GM in this matter. Important to consider other companies increased their issue review of possible problems and grew their recall numbers also. Overall a positive move within the ENTIRE industry.
I would not watch him even if he was the last man standing on national tv. Just like I avoid FoxNews.
And a new Bugatti Veryon in mat black. The coming senior Cadillac sedan'll sell out before it even hits the ground out here. Escalade's and GMC Denali's are the HOT ticket. Local chevrolet dealers get special GM allocations of Corvettes. Jeez they're literally all over the place out here. Love my ATS - just had a new pair of Magnaflow's installed - sounds so much better.
You speak the truth. Between he and Cruz - it's a toss up over who's the most ridiculus. I wish Wendy Davis luck winning over Greg Abott for Texas Governor. Greg Abbott turns my stomach.
I haven't decided - who's the bigger fool. Rush or those who listen to his line of #$%$.
