2016 Chevrolet Cruze First Drive

Automakers of the world underestimate the engineering acumen of General Motors at their own peril.

Volkswagen will buy back most Dieselgate cars in US

Volkswagen will offer to buy back every diesel car in the US that cheated emissions standards, a vast and expensive undertaking covering nearly half a million vehicles.

Low-speed cruising down the Promenade des Anglais in the Mercedes-Benz S550 Cabriolet we’re a spectacle, as well we should be — top-down, sun ricocheting off 14-spoke 20-inch AMG wheels, two figures lounging back in white Nappa leather Designo seats with pillow-top headrests. I’d look at us, too.
