    Too many signs of economic and market collapse

    You’re talking about the K4, yet you’re showing the K5 🤨

    I love the gray body with the red roof and side mirrors on the Nissan Kicks. I hope that is a production option. In general, I was able to attend the NY Auto Show once several years ago. It was amazing. At that time it covered something like four floors of the Jacob Javits Center. If you get the chance, definitely attend.

  4. The VW Microbus has been on sale in Europe for some time, so it’s for real. Just not here yet.

  5. Nice job noting the cars on display painted in an actual color. So sick of all the white/black/gray vehicles these days.

    Google Honda recalls–I can’t get into a dealer before July—18 Clarity-fuel pump, airbag, air compressor, seat harness, screen update, battery cell check

    13:34 Not all disabilities are seen equally. Sorry but it’s true 🤷‍♂️
    Perfect example April 2nd

  8. I want to see more cars. Focus on the cars not on the people.

    The last new car I bought was a 2016 Hyundai Sonata at 23,000. Because of its high theft profile, I wanted to replace it with a 2024 Honda Accord hybrid. But with an MSRP of 34,000 and the dealer trying to stick on an extra $2,000 in profit. That was not acceptable. So I bought a used 2020 Honda Accord hybrid for 19k. And I am happy. Went from 33 mi to gallon to 51 mi a gallon᜵, with my used Accord.

  10. I agree about the Prologue, why would i pay a higher cost when they share equipment, materials with Chevy. Id buy the Chevy instead.

    Call Quincy “Mike” and Crossen “Michael”

  12. Automakers aren’t there yet, they still think ‘affordability’ means 120 month payments

    That trio of orange cars definitely looks good!

    Any updates on the Rav4 2025?

  15. @JackTheSkunk | March 28, 2024 at 5:41 PM |

    For the life of me, I don’t know what Honda was thinking when they decided to jump in the sleeping bag with GM. I hope they don’t regret it.

    The Kia made me think of the 1964 Plymouth Barracuda.

    Motormouth citing at 17:39 😄

    And speaking of colors…I think the Honda CRV and Ridgeline look great in Radiant Red. Manufacturers need to brighten up their SUVs a bit. I would like to see all pickups offered in flashy colors…Ferrari Red, Yellow, Orange and Plum as well as the standard, boring offerings.

    “yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah”

  20. Comparing to all the international car shows outside U.S., this is still ICE centric traditional cars. The elephant in the room is no Chinese EV.
