Synopsis

Sometimes Spring has all the certainty of the spin of a roulette wheel. You're never sure what's going to come up. Take the weather...in many parts of the country it's unpredictable to say the least. Then there are your favorite TV shows--Cliffhangers galore-- who lives, who dies, and that's just when it comes to the shows themselves. And of course, the automotive industry isn't immune from this uncertainty either. With the major consumer shows in the rear view mirror, you're just never quite sure where the major industry news might come from. That's why, on this week's show, John McElroy welcomes three top automotive journalists to discuss what has happened and what will be happening over the next few months in the mercurial world of manufacturing cars and trucks.

Joining John for the full show are Dutch Mandel from AutoWeek, Doron Levin of Bloomberg News, as well as John Stoll from the Wall Street Journal. They'll be tackling a variety of topics like bankruptcies, strikes and sales. Of course let's not forget the subjects of issues, plans and personalities. And as always on Autoline, you can count on plenty of talk about fresh product. So join John and the panel for a show that's never a gamble no matter the season...Autoline.
