This Summer's Hard-to-Find Cars
Newly redesigned and fuel-efficient models top a new list of the most elusive cars on dealer lots.
I knew my initial comment about BMW being the best would stir up lots of controversy. I still stand by my view. Speed channel featured a challenge between the Lexus IS and the BMW 3 Series, if my memory serves me correctly. BMW beat out the Lexus in 3 major categories. Lexus was very close in the speed category. BMW still won overall and impressed the drivers with its sophisticated performance and handling.
Mercedes Benz is definitely the granddaddy of the German cars. It's about time they redesigned the SL class. Finally it looks more streamlined and youthful. It's not a matter of affordability that has kept me from coveting a Mercedes over a BMW. My family has had multiple Mercedes. I just never felt passionate about the aesthetics of the MB.
The bottom line is that there are multiple automobile makes and models to please multiple tastes. For those people who see a car as an essential tool to get from point A to point B, I can respect their opinion. However, I see my cars as a work of art to be cherished and enjoyed like an expensive toy. Driving is such fun.
Obamanomics, mmm, mmm, mmm. I can make my monthly car payments with food stamps now.
