Detroit Auto Show - First Impressions

I usually start the auto show with a quick walk thru, just to see who’s here and what has changed from last year. My wife sent me on a mission this year to find her next SUV so I made an uncharacteristic stop to see the VW Atlas and the new similar Subaru. Both were contenders and in the low $40s pretty well appointed.

I also stopped and looked at a competing again and Ford product. OMG what a difference. First you notice they start in the high $60s, then you start to see the cheap plastic, analog gauges from the 70s and the disparity grows from there.

Americans need to get their act together. Never ever would I spend so much more money for so much less of a product. 

Just my first impression. More to come....
