Approximately 1.2 million American married couples divorce each year. While financial issues, infidelity, and control of the remote are generally understood to be primary causes for divorce, I think we can safely say there’s another reason for the all the acrimony: couples aren’t car shopping enough.

2016 Chevrolet Cruze

The redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Cruze starts at $17,495 for the base L with manual transmission, while an LS with automatic transmission — the least-expensive model with automatic — starts at just under $20,000.

It’s going to be hugely confusing some years down the road, because there are now two completely different versions of the 2016 Chevrolet Cruze.

Last fall, Chevrolet introduced the 2016 edition of the Cruze as the “Cruze Limited.” What we now know is that the name modification was an attempt to differentiate it from the upcoming redesigned Cruze, which recently debuted as a “late” 2016 model.

For an auto news geek, one of the more entertaining monthly reports to peruse is the new-vehicle inventory update published in Automotive News. From it, we can deduce what vehicles are in short supply (i.e., probably selling well), and which are taking up space (i.e., selling poorly). The report is not infallible in this regard, however, as factory down time, model-year build-outs, and other factors can cloud the overall picture.

Advertising to men used to be a lot easier than it is now. From an article on 602communications.com, “Marketing to men has changed immensely over the years. Just putting a hot chick up on a motorcycle using your product doesn’t cut it anymore when advertising to men. The key here is to really dig deep down and figure out what men really want to feel about themselves.”

After a nearly 30-year absence, Fiat returned to the U.S. market for 2012. Though the brand’s relaunch has been marred by disappointing sales and dealer unrest, Fiat now has three distinct model lines available to shoppers.
