Ssangyong in America? 911 Turbo driven, New Tesla, : What's New @ The Car Connection

August 24, 2016

Back in 2014, South Korean automaker Ssangyong said that it was planning to bring its lineup of cars and crossovers to the U.S. in 2016. Those plans never panned out, but thanks to the U.K.'s decision to bail on the European Union, Ssangyong's U.S. debut is up for discussion again.

Over the past few years, car owners have become increasingly dissatisfied with their vehicles. But a new study from the American Customer Satisfaction Index suggests that for most automakers, consumer sentiment has made a turn for the better. 

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is recalling select 2015 and 2016 Jeep Renegade crossovers to fix a problem with their trailer hitches. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall affects 8,561 vehicles registered in the U.S.

The more the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo talks, the more it sounds like the end.

Dear Everyone Who Attends Cars and Coffee-type events, Stop. Just stop. 

I'm not sure if you're aware, but Jeremy Clarkson was fired from his job with the BBC. He worked for a show you might've heard of called Top Gear. There was a fracas. There was an apology. There was no turning back really. Still, it seems the head of the BBC at the time wishes it all shook out a bit differently.

From Green Car Reports:

The first time may have been a Pyrrhic victory. In April, an updated 90D emerged with a kinda, sorta 300-mile range and a new face.

With the notable exception of Tesla Motors' company-owned stores, electric cars must compete against internal-combustion models for space and attention on dealer lots.

Last month, regulators released a "Technical Assessment Report" on how well automakers have done thus far in meeting Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards.
