GM is recalling almost 51,000 Cadillac SRX because of a problem with the transmission control module. GM says some drives have experienced a 3-4 second hesitation when the driver accelerates uphill. General Motors said the problem would happen if the transmission upshifts from first to second gear and then the driver presses the brakes, slowing the vehicle to less than 5 MPH, and then accelerates again.
After a 20 year hiatus, Alfa Romeo will return to the US market with a 2-seater, sports car called the 4C. The 4C will come with a 237-horsepower, turbocharged, rear mounted 4 cylinder engine. The 4C will be sold through specially selected Fiat and Maserati dealers this fall for $54,000.
