The at-fault driver’s insurance company has admitted liability for all repairs, rear and front, for our Cadillac ATS. They have committed to sending a check for the estimate as provided by their adjuster. Apparently, the five-figure amount is not enough to get them to total the car.
While my wonderful wife and I really like the ATS, I know part of me was looking forward to buying something else. I guess neither of these cars will be parked in our garage:
Not that I needed any more proof, but the fact that buying another car had some appeal is yet another example of my automobile fanaticism. I REALLY understand how so many people end up owning multiple cars. For me, a car is not just something to transport me from A to B.
From Corvette Blogger comes this list of the top ten Premium Sporty Cars according to J.D. Power as ranked by APEAL: Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout. Their survey “questioned verified owners of new vehicles, in an attempt to determine the makes and models that are most satisfying in terms of their overall appeal. To be eligible to respond, owners must have had their cars for at least 90 days and share with J.D. Power their likes and dislikes about the vehicles. J.D. Power then took that information to come up with an overall appeal index score.” Without further ado:
10. 2021 Toyota GR Supra – 841
9. 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class – 845
8. 2021 BMW 2 Series – 853
7. 2021 Audi A5 – 861
6. 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class – 865
5. 2021 Porsche 718 – 880
4. 2021 BMW 4 Series – 892
3. 2021 Porsche 911 – 897
2. 2021 Lexus LC – 899
1. 2021 Chevrolet Corvette – 907
Sorry, European car snobs. (No, I’m not really sorry although tomorrow’s post will be in praise of a European car company and the identity of that company will shock regular Disaffected Musings readers.) Obviously, I am happy to see the Corvette at the top and the Lexus LC at number two.
All that being said, I still think it is highly unlikely that a C8 Corvette will find its way into our garage or wherever we may be storing cars. Variety is the spice of life.
