US Auto Sales nose dives in April; 50%+ decline year to year. 633K vehicles sold.
\- Fiat was willing to practically give me the 124 Spider Abarth to get it off the lot for free, but the car didn't impress me that much. You'd think dealers would stop playing games, but no, they aren't hurting enough apparently to stop their normal awful antics which is why I try to avoid dealerships altogether.

What's your "never again" car brand?
My never again brand is Fiat. Not because my 500 Abarth was necessarily unreliable, but any issues that would come up had about a 0% chance of being fixed correctly, or at all for that matter. Most FCA dealers by 2016 had 1 or sometimes zero Fiat trained and certified techs in their shop. So they'd either turn you away or mess something up.

Tell us your funniest car related joke.
A guy changes his Fiat 500 for a bigger car and complains about increased road noise. The salesman comes around and says: "Can't understand how it could possibly be the case, the new sedan is so much quieter". The buyer responds: "When I sat in Fiat 500, my knees covered my ears".

How much power is too much to have fun?
300hp, 130hp, 210hp. The GLI (middle in power) is least fun to me because I didn't feel engaged. It's a nice sports sedan that dulled the drive to the point I got bored. The Fiat is engaging because I get to drive it 7/10th on the road and not get a speeding ticket.
