Back to the future: Chrysler finds solution to old Jeep recall

In a Jeep recall that originated back in 2011, Chrysler’s famed SUV division has devised a solution to the unsolved problem.

Dodge possibly recalling Vipers for suspension issue

Long before Sergio Marchionne rechristened it the SRT, it was known throughout the automotive world as the Dodge Viper, the snake on four wheels that is a beast to handle.

2014 Alfa Romeo 4C

At long last, after what seems like years of renderings, spy photos, and the on-again, off-again relationship between Alfa Romeo and the States, they’ve finally launched the 4C! Don’t call it a successor to the limited-production 8C, but rather a car that will spearhead a revival of sorts for the Italian automaker, as well its plans…
