They needed a bailout? I see...

Well, while a nice 0-60 time, what is the top end and how much more weight do all these "features" add to the car? I'm more concerned with how it handles in the end than how fast it can go in a straight line.

its not that they needed a bailout....

its that why not get a slice of the free money when its being passed out.

Actually, in the LONG term it HELPS the economy when big businesses go under.

I would love to see an explanation how the economy did better when a company like Enron went under? At least in a way related to Enron's fall.

Easily explained with another question. How the hell is it good to have an Enron in business? Big business falling opens up the market for small business. Small business does more for local economy because the money STAYS THERE. Economics 101. Wal-Mart is BAD for America. Why? Because when you buy cheap Chinese made crap a portion of that money goes to foreign investors, China and a lot of it goes into the bank accounts of the three Walton kids who all happen to be multi-billionaires. With small business, you have more business owners who live LOCALLY and those billions are divided up among them instead. They spend money on each other's businesses LOCALLY. Get it yet? If you want to send your money to Abu Dallah in Saudi Arabia who owns a large portion of Wal-Mart stores, go right on ahead. But I prefer that my cash stay here and I would rather be earning a bigger paycheck and work for MYSELF than work for $8 an hour for the Waltons.

Read the article. It failed in cornering. And you only had 55 miles of fun before you were done for the day.

I read the DT article - nothing at all is mentioned about its cornering ability, just an upgrade to tires/suspension/sway bars.
