Fresh back in from a test drive in a nice black one. I'm favorably impressed! But it won't replace the Sport Coupe...

It's good to see an American car MFG directing their company in the right direction.

Quite right - if they'd been in "Top Gear" mode, they would have seen single digit MPG, at least right up until the impact with the caravan (or something).
If it weren't for the internet I'd have never seen or heard of Top Gear; best car show ever produced.

Now I think I've seen all 14 seasons and the past 3 episodes!

I've been a fan since William Woollard did the first series in the 70s and before it became the Jeremy Clarkson show.
