      Yes, minus the MSRP I couldn't afford at the time and the failure-prone air suspension and 2.7TT.

      Love it, but they're missing out on a good enginerd joke if they don't call it the Vmax.

      Because only a small portion of the buying public buys Mazdas anyway, and they may as well carve out a niche among people who will appreciate and understand what the company brings to the table. ...

      What there really needs to be is legislation mandating minimum driver education standards, including knowing how to properly adjust your ****in' mirrors

      The giant truck with the enormous speaker stack and a captive slave-guitarist shredding on a double-necked guitar that's also a flamethrower is, quite possibly, the most metal thing to have ever...

      And when it first came out, that was the Tiguan's sole competitive point: it handles reasonably well and has decent driving dynamics. However, then the CX-5, Escape, Forester XT, Juke, Countryman,...

      That's stretching the definition to the point of meaninglessness. For the purposes of reasonable discussion about automotive design, retro is more than a traditional styling theme or cue.
    9. Glad you're happy with yours, but if you think...

      Glad you're happy with yours, but if you think it's competitive - let alone dominant - you're delusional. It's far wide of the mark on packaging, pricing, and value compared to the rest of the class.

      Oh, come the **** ON already. They replaced the friggin' Crown Vic, for Godsake - if anybody ever makes even the suggestion that those retrograde abortions were better handlers than a Tahoe or an...

      It's not a retro car. Retro is dead. Retro sucks.
    12. Jeep already does carry the same level of cachet...

      Jeep already does carry the same level of cachet as any of those brands - just not the same cachet. The G-class and Range Rovers do have strong brands aside from their nameplate, but the fact that...
    13. On what basis? It's a terribly weak brand here,...

      On what basis? It's a terribly weak brand here, but even worldwide, I'd argue it's not a strong brand in the way that Jeep and other brands like it are. VW is kind of mass-market, sensible-shoes,...
    14. What are you even talking about? It's got plenty...

      What are you even talking about? It's got plenty of ties to the original Camaro - it's obviously modern and not some silly retro pastiche, but it's very obviously a modernized and stylized take on...

      Where has he put a dollar figure on what he's thinking? Yes, the most loaded of RRs can get up to $200k, but it starts at $83k. The realistic limit is far short of $200k, but I think Jeep could...

      Overland has a crapload of potential, and I agree that it could be a sub-brand. It's got a ton of history, the word is really evocative, and it fits with Jeep like a glove on a hand. Distinctive...

      Comparisons to VW completely miss the point; VW is not a strong a brand and doesn't have the premium/aspirational positioning that Jeep does. As I said earlier, Jeep has a multi-decade history of...

      That wasn't your statement, your statement is still wrong, and you need to stop backpedaling.

      Which is over $57k now.

      Jeep is FCA's volume brand, but it's not really a bread and butter brand the way, say, Hyundai or Toyota is. It's an aspirational brand, verging on premium. Jeeps carry a price premium, have some...
