One Way That General Motors Trails Crosstown Rival Ford Motor Company

I own an older, 2006 Ecotec engine on my 2006 Saab 9-3, which had GM with turbo charging many years before Ford spent millions promoting its new "Ecoboost" engines that have terrible turbo lag. Saab realized to reduce

9 Cars That Average 50 MPG or Better on the Highway: You'll Be Shocked By No. 1!

"Number of battery issues and recalls" - I saw this on the Volt ranked at #5. Very interesting, as that link goes to disappointing sales - not to battery issues and recalls. I know of one recall - batteries that caught on
