Ford desperately needs to do something for Lincoln, and I think offering a Lincoln-only performance luxury sedan is that thing. Not a car that is plainly a Fusion with extra body cladding -...

End of the year decision: 535xi or 550xi? (both drivers chime in)

I want to talk you out of xDrive. BMW uses the soft, non-sport suspension on the xDrive models, so if a sport sedan composure is of any value to you at all, DHP is a critical option. Then:

Not on the E60, but we also use them on our Volvo XC70, and it is generally fine.

I see what you're getting at there. Although, LeaseTrader does a pre-credit check on prospects before they expose them to "sellers" as interested.

Please school me on lease negotiation.

Seriously. In ten or twelve conversations of mine, only one person has even bothered to explain to me that they don't want to put any cash into the deal. The rest just stop talking to me the second I...

My case was a down payment, not an MSD. As the lessee, I get a little of it back in each payment. ;)

There was a horribly annoying rattle in our Volvo XC70 at one point. It was "moving behind" and I thought it was the hatch. I tried everything I knew and it wouldn't go away.

Then one day I...

Logically, yes. The reality of the lease transfer market is that 19 of 20 "buyers" - or more - are there to get into a lease quickly with no cash out of pocket.

It's going to be hard for BMW to let go of the profit they're making on $2500 navigation systems. Plus, I don't see them as too excited to open up their hardware architecture to be able to interface...

Depending on model - it's actually $3500 on a 5 series. Amazing, no? So, on an xDrive 5 series, you pay about $2500 for xDrive itself and then $3500 for DHP - a whopping $6000 premium over a...

Normally I would post something like this on Facebook, but that is where all the grief is going on in my neighborhood, and I feel like it's better to be silent about it there for a while.
