    What a great show. Two of my favourite guests are back. If only you still had the couch, a cooler of beer and your dog at your feet like the old days, it would be perfect. Cheers, Phil

    One Lutz to rule them all!

    Anyone going to mention that the Cruze diesel is dead for 2016. 2 years of production and with all the VW cheating and quit? No is the time to pounce and advertise. Cruze sold only 3,000 compared to 40000 TDIs but got 130 more miles per take over 700 miles. No turbo 4 cyl or 6 cyl is getting claimed mpg as one episode mentioned by the AAA. Torque and gearing get mpg. The 4.2 incline 6 with 90% of peak torque at 1500rpm and driving rpm. The 3.6 in the acadia is high rpm v6 and shifts too much. People hate it that come from trucks and old envoy. It should have survived in trucks with better gearing. Dont get it. I have a 05 GTO and 05 Envoy. Not a product problem but an advertising problem. GM not too bright. What are they thinking?? How about advertising and marketing of which are always a flop.



    130 more miles more than vw tdi……over 700 miles on a tank!!!! And gm cancels diesel after 2 years instead of advertising that it beat the tdi without cheating they just cancel it.
