    Oh what a tangled web both vw and now bosch tried to weave.As the red queen likes to say,”off with their heads’,lol.

  2. Kit Gerhart Says:

    I’m sure the Cadenza is a very nice car, but, sorry, I’d rather have a Buick, or a Toyota, or even a Chevy (Impala) if buying a car in that class. I’m less “brand conscious” than many car buyers, but…

  3. Buzzerd Says:

    I really like the Infin-cerdes QX30, a vehicle Cadillac should and probably will be building soon.

  4. Kit Gerhart Says:

    Can we assume that the QX30 will be a substandard high-end Nissan, as the GLA is a substandard Benz?

  5. Brett Says:

    My granddaughter drove a rental GLA when she flew in for a visit. She drives a new Cherokee. Not long after she was shopping the small Lexus SUV. None of us we impressed at all with the Mercedes.

    Unrelated question: When is Ford going to field a Fiesta-based small CUV? Aren’t their competitors flooding into that segment? Chevy Trax, etc?

  6. Jon M Says:

    If VW had taken a shortcut on some part or process that affected the safety of their vehicles that resulted in the death of a customer(s), this whole issue would be behind them. The costs would be paid and a relatively small contingency set aside for civil litigation. Yet even though their cheating should be punished, I’m curious as to how VW’s indiscretion is SO MUCH MORE egregious than other improprieties by automakers that left people dead, some of whom the government winked at and protected from prosecution. The lesson here is clear: kill as many people as you want, but for heaven’s sake DON’T fudge an MPG estimate NO MATTER how inconsequential!!

  7. Rick W Says:

    ? UBER buying Volvo’s?????

    I thought their business model was that the drivers owned their own vehicles which kept UBER out of the vehicle purchasing equation.

    How will this relationship with Volvo work in the current UBER business model.?

  8. Kit Gerhart Says:

    6 VW blatantly, and knowingly violated the law in a huge way, apparently with the full knowledge of people at all levels of the organization. That is what makes it so different.

    Yes, it’s unfortunate when people get killed in car crashes, and yes, a few more have died as the result of cost saving measures over the years. Still, it is a health issue, especially in cities, when the VW diesels emit 40 times the allowable levels of NOx, just as it is a health issue when you drive a car off the road and crash into a tree, when your rear ended car catches fire. The crash into the tree, and fire are more dramatic, though.

  9. Lisk Says:

    Wasn’t Bosch named early in the scandal as being part of the code writers that enabled the cheating?

    If Uber is buying/leasing cars from Volvo cars, doesn’t that go against everything Uber came to stand for? Also will autonomous taxis (oops, ride sharing services)know if a rider has loaded in 8 foot 2×4′s that are hanging out the side window?
