Today at High Gear Media: Volt, Camaro, Verano, Eos, SRX...Whew!

October 7, 2010

The 2011 Chevrolet Volt could join the Feds' fleet of vehicles. Now, where to plug it in? Lincoln Bedroom? Perfect. [AllCarsElectric]

This afternoon, we'll know for sure if GM will build the 2012 Buick Verano in Michigan, or if it has plans to do something else with the space. Our idea: Burning Man East. [AllSmallCars]

Volkswagen is shedding more light on the 2011 Eos, fitting since it's named for the break of day. [TheCarConnection]

Cadillac will recall about 4500 SRX crossovers for a power-steering problem. Owners, fret not--here's an 800 number to call. [FamilyCarGuide]

Shock and awww!: the 2011 MINI Countryman comes in way below where we thought, and makes the Clubman even a bit less easier to figure out. [MotorAuthority]

The 2011 Dodge Durango's been in the wild for some time, but no one's clambered inside for a shot. Now, Dodge's agency folks have...from the roof? How do they get these interior shots, anyway? [MotorAuthority]

The next Volkswagen New Beetle (or will it just be Beetle?) looks more square and more squished, like a baseball cap brim. We like, at least on screen. [MotorAuthority]

Which two automakers hit the list of worst social-media screwups of all time? [SocialCarNews]

Why can't you get a straight answer from a car salesperson? If it seems like an easy question, maybe you're not completely aware of the back-room antics. [BestCarBuyingGuide]
