PALO ALTO, Calif. — Is there a light at the end of the tunnel for car sales? What happens in 2010, as General Motors and Chrysler work their way back from the brink? And what should consumers know about the new cars arriving in 2011–the Cadillac CTS-V, the Chevrolet Volt, the Ford Fiesta and Ford Focus, the Toyota Sienna and Nissan LEAF, and more?
High Gear Media’s (www.highgearmedia.com) car experts know the answers–and the team of experienced car reviewers and industry reporters will be on hand for live coverage – and available to comment for you – from the 2010 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit as it opens to the media on press-preview days, January 10-12.
