    I agree, the new Colorado could be a big hit. Tacoma is just a toy, too small to be a real truck. The Colorado is bigger, just big enough to do the jobs of many full-size trucks but small enough to be more convenient and get better gas mileage. It reminds me of the Dodge Dakota which had moderate success, even though it was a cheap piece of #$%$. The new Colorado looks well executed (as all recent GM vehicles seem to be).

    FIAT worst rated by Consumer Report

    Nice choices- all great looking cars which are reasonably priced and perform well. Back to Fiat, I'm sure the automated manual transmission and the small turbo engines which are common in Fiats are the source of a lot of customer complaints. A lot of people don't understand these technologies and how they affect the driving experience and may interpret normal behavior as a "defect".

    They also list the Ford C-Max as one of the most unreliable cars. My girlfriend bought a 2014 in July and loves it. Except for a loose fitting glove box door, the car has been perfect. The car reeks quality. Plus it has averaged 44.7 MPG after 5000 miles, again better than what Consumer Reports said. They also said my 2008 Dodge Magnum was unreliable. Except for front suspension work, the car has been close to perfect after 107,000 miles. Paint, interior, engine, tranny are all holding up beautifully. Still has the original battery!

    Market Cap of the 2 companies values Ford more than 4X times than Fiat Chrysler. Before Ford's freefall it was more like 5X. Looks to me that Fiat Chrysler is very undervalued compared to other major car makers.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Down 20% in the past month on basically no news. Several of my stocks are at, or close to, their 52 weeks low so SQM isn't tanking all by itself. Still, this is my biggest loser by far. I'm surprised SQM doesn't get bought out given its reasonable market value.
