Last Call: Top Gear News Edition

As you may have heard, there has been a kerfuffle involving a Top Gear host that has put the remainder of the current season’s shows up in the air as far as, well, airing. We don’t go in for digging that kind of dirt and so won’t be making mention of the issue outside of this post.
Instead, for your enjoyment or otherwise, here’s a picture of Top Gear host James May with a flowery tie and awkwardly short hair.
Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    I like his haircut. It makes him look years younger.

      He looks like the fifth (or sixth, if you recall Brian Epstein) Beatle.

      He -was- younger at that time.

    Way to go, GM, this builds consumer trust.

      I have given up on GM….an the company AND its products. Disappointment at every level.

      Such an odd move when everyone else is in an arms race to offer the biggest warranty numbers. It seems so obvious that any new car should go to 60k without problems. One comment I read was that this might allow GM to be more flexible: they don’t have to keep as much cash on hand with shorter warranties. Seems feasible.

      See that is actually the point though. If you need a hugely long warranty, ie Kia and Hyundai with their 10/100’s, it’s because the customers don’t trust the brand and this is to convince you in their product. If the customer trusts the product then they don’t need a giant warranty.
      The problem is that we don’t see it that way anymore. We see it as a perk now. We expect a longer warranty. In fact I own a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan that is bumping up against it’s 60,000 powertrain warranty. Since I had a 2009 Kia in the family as well I got used to that 10/100 warranty. So when the power sliding door on my Dodge had an issue I was rather upset to remember that my Dodge had a 3/36 bumper to bumper. This actually made me look at Kia in a more positive light. The reverse of how it should have made me look at their reliability.
      On the flip side with recalls being put on vehicles that are a decade old now. Maybe longer warranties aren’t really out of the question since the manufacturers are being forced to take care of them anyway.
