FOX News Radio begins a new weekly podcast… “FOX Wheels”. It’s all about cars and trucks… and anything else that drives. Today… going nowhere to car shop and reliability.
FOX News Radio’s Jennifer Keiper with more in our weekly look at the industry:
If you have your eye on a shiny new car, walking onto a lot can be like something out of the movie “Used Cars”…
(“Used Cars”) “I was just looking.//Oh hey, terrific. Nobody’s going to pressure anyone around here, Stan.”
GM’s CEO says stay in your pajamas and buy his cars and trucks online…
(Daniel Akerson) “Doesn’t mean we’re going to try and bypass our dealers.”
By the end of the year, GM dealers will have the option of joining program called “Shop-Click-Drive.”
How safe is your car?
Consumer Reports has dropped the Toyota Camry, RAV4 and Prius V from its reliability report because they failed a crash test. The 2014 Subaru Forester was best overall. The Ford C-Max Energi was at the bottom.
You may have seen the video of a Tesla car-b-que – Mike Quincy with Consumer Reports says it was tops in their performance tests. It’s an all-electric..
(Quincy) “While it is running – it is an amazing piece of machinery and we have data that shows it’s reliable.”
We love our road muscle.
Truck sales – still going strong in the U.S.
