Auto Prices To Be Much Higher

5 posts in this topic

Did you link the right article? That link pointed to an article about letting states set more strict emissions standards and also making vehicles more fuel efficient....something they should have done a long time ago IMO.

The US auto industry would need a major overhaul to ever get me to consider purchasing one of their vehicles. My husband drives one and that's all he's ever driven. His cars have been crap. I've had a Plymouth, a Datsun (before they became Nissan), a Mazda, and now a Honda. I got rid of the Datsun because I had a child and wanted something bigger. I got rid of the Mazda because I had my second child and they had made signficant changes to vans to where I wanted a new one. We donated the Mazda to a charity who in turn gave it to a local family. I saw that van on the road for years after that. I'm in no hurry to get rid of my Honda. Only way I probably would is if they made a hybrid version of it.

They can raise new car prices all they want. I've bought used cars under $10,000 my whole life.

Connect the dots.

I agree with you. But it cost the auto makers a lot of money to do this. It must be passed along to the consumer.

I have owned a Dodge Caravan. It blew a head gasket at 13,000 miles. My Chevy Astro's transmission quit at around 13,000. I have been buying rice burners for a long time now with no problems. I have a '99 Camry(made in Kentucky) And a '04 Honda CRV. Probly bought 10 New Toyotas over the last few years. My next car WILL be a Toyota. No way Detriot can compete.

A prepwned BMW is looking like a better and better option. Come people buy my stuff!

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
