This week on Let’s Talk Cars, it’s all about consideration, brand consideration that is. AutoPacific founder and president George Peterson and VehicleVoice contributor Jim Hall have another go at polite conversation while tackling a new AutoPacific consumer survey that has American automotive manufacturers slipping, Mercedes tanking, and Toyota doing back flips, albeit in a deprivation tank.
And with 91 octane fuel going for well over $3 a gallon in California, we give you the Lexus GS450h – the newest hybrid from the luxury arm of Toyota. Worth the money? Hear what Jim and George have to say.

This week on Let’s Talk Cars, we take on the juicy subject of “hangar queens.” These are the vehicles automotive companies wish they hadn’t decided to sell. AutoPacific founder and president George Peterson and VehicleVoice contributor Jim Hall have another of their signature dialogs and take on the entire automotive industry while they’re at it!
But it’s not all negative. Jim Hall thinks Audi has done something extraordinary on the race track that might soon trickle all the way down to a showroom near you.
And we wrap things up with an OpEd piece from George Peterson on the new flood of small (we mean really small) cars hitting the market.
