I am selling my 2001 Chevy Tahoe, as pictured here. This has been a great truck. I'm the 2nd owner. Highlights:runs great, needs nothing (turnkey)meticulously maintained - some of the work since I've owned it: all brake lines replaced, brakes x 4 within the past 2 years, driver's front wheel bearing, intake manifold gasket, spark plugs, oil + filter changes every 5-6 thousand miles (always with Mobil 1 full synthetic), accessory belt replaced recently, water pump replaced in 2011, alignment last summer (suspension tight), transmission service (tranny is solid, doesn't skip)interior and exterior are in excellent shape for its age (CONSTANTLY getting complimented on the car)all electrical - lights, windows, seats, compass, etc etc work properlyAftermarket (Pioneer) head unit installed (on otherwise stock system w/ subwoofer) - w/ bluetooth a2dp streaming audio and phone, ipod hookup (oem head unit will be included, easy to switch back out)AC blows cold, heat hotseat heaters in frontlumbar supportTow package - great tow vehicleLED spot-light in the grille - installed last year, lights up with the high beams (no separate switches installed) - see photos. Buyer has the option to exclude this, in which case I will replace the grille with a completely stock one (in this case, LED spot will NOT be included with purchase)Areas of Imperfection: Exterior - very minor dings and scratches here and there. No major dents, no keying. One small area of penetrative rust in the left quarter panel at the very bottom about the size of a quarter. Hardly noticeable unless you're on the ground, but worth mentioning. Car has wintered in the north, so it has the expected degree of chassis rust, but nothing terrible. Interior - driver's seat has some scuffs/wear and tear (other seats are in great shape). Driver's seat armrest is suprisingly torn up.

It's been a little over a year and a half since General Motors first confirmed plans to offer a diesel-powered Chevrolet Cruze here in the United States, and we've now learned that the oil-burning compact will debut under the lights of the Chicago Auto Show in February. According to GM Authority, the Cruze Eco-D will be introduced as part of the entire 2014 model year Cruze range, set to go on sale in the second quarter of this year.
Earlier reports have indicated that the diesel Cruze will be able to achieve fuel economy numbers in the range of 50 miles per gallon. For comparison, the similarly sized Volkswagen Jetta TDI is rated at 30/42 mpg city/highway, but as we found out in our long-term test of the 2011 model, hitting 50 mpg was a piece of cake.
Official specifications will be released at the time of the 2014 Cruze's unveiling, though reports have stated that the sedan will be powered by a reworked version of the 2.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-four found in the Holden Cruze CDX overseas. In that application, the four-pot oil-burner produces 160 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque - increases of 20 hp and 29 lb-ft over the 2.0-liter engine used in VW's Jetta TDI.
The Performance Data Recorder with Valet Mode available on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seems like a fantastic tool for many owners. Whether they are taking 720p video while lapping the track in their new 'Vette, or just want to protect their purchase from inconsiderate joyriders, the system offers a lot of functionality in one package. However, one of the PDR's features might get buyers in trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with recording some illicit high-speed driving on a favorite back road. The problem hinges on the various state laws concerning a person's right to privacy.
According to a letter posted by Jalopnik, Chevy dealers are asking 2015 Corvette owners not to use the Valet Mode portion of the PDR because it records audio in the cabin, in addition to performance specs. That's a problem because privacy laws vary from state to state with some requiring just one side's consent to tape sound and others requiring all parties to agree. According Jalopnik, 15 states mandate everyone's permission beforehand, but it's not clear whether these numbers are up to date. (Actually, the report varies, saying 13 states in some places and 15 in a list.)
According to the letter, Chevy is already working on a software update for the near future to rectify the issue. It's possible that simply adding a warning to drivers and the ability to turn off the audio recording function in Valet Mode might solve the problem. Obviously, this doesn't preclude Corvette drivers from using the performance aspect of the PDR, and owners are free tape lap after lap at the track.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo's gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it's time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM's technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.
Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM's troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that's slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?
