    Hey vw,what goes around,comes around.Looks like you’re going to get a proper comeuppance.Long overdue imo.

  2. MJB Says:

    You’re right about fully autonomous driving having a psychological component. Heck, I get edgy enough when I’m in the passenger seat while my wife is behind the wheel – with all sorts of idiosyncrasies that keep me from ever feeling relaxed enough to doze off while on road trip.

    …Can’t imagine how long it would take for me to trust a computer.

  3. Roger T Says:

    Maybe this is just me but I still struggle in crediting Korean cars with a Luxury image.

  4. FSTFWRD Says:

    I wonder how Lexus is going to heat and cool those seats?

  5. M360 Says:

    Can anybody shed some light on this consideration: What happens when you’re in one of those autonomous cars and something unexpected happens? What if a tire goes flat? What happens if another car hits your car? Maybe snow pours down unexpectedly, then what? It’s not a simple world out there even though we might try to make it that way.

  6. Kit Gerhart Says:

    So will the be a Genesis Genesis, and a Hyundai Equus? I guess the Equus will be kind of like the very successful VW Phaeton, or will the Equus nameplate go away?

  7. Ukendoit Says:

    Kit, I don’t know about the Equus’s fate, but it looks like once Genesis is the brand name, the models will be alphanumeric like G80, G90.
