In an effort to help skew the brand towards a younger demographic, Cadillac has announced a logo refresh to be introduced at next month’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. A result of almost 40 changes throughout the brand’s history, the current logo features a wreath surrounding the Cadillac crest. The crest had previously featured silhouetted rows of ducks that faced the chopping block in 1999; old people like ducks. Continue reading

If you were car conscious in the 1980s, you may think you’ve seen this movie before: General Motors takes a compact sedan with econobox underpinnings, re-skins it, puts an upmarket badge on it, and sells it as a luxury car. Yep, we’ve just invoked the infamous Cadillac Cimarron, which was based upon the Chevy Cavalier. It was a laughably awful car. Continue reading
One of the vehicles which was introduced at this year’s New York Auto show last spring didn’t garner blockbuster attention. As the Dodge Durango’s real tale is one of grim survival amidst the decimation of the mid-size SUV segment, it’s kind of depressing. Continue reading

We at CarWoo! are privileged to partner with some extremely hard working dealers. These guys personally respond to every pricing request that comes through the site. And they do it fast!
How fast is fast?
The top salesperson from last month averaged a 2 hour turn around time for your pricing requests. Keep in mind that responding to a request is a lot of work – they have to locate a car that meets your preferences, log all the details of that car; year, color, trim, options, VIN and mileage, and then enter in pricing and fees, all before sending off to you, the patient shopper. And they do all of this while working on the floor at the dealership, taking their kids to school, walking the dog and blowing off some steam at weekly knitting classes.
So, this month, our collective hats are off to Mr. Daniel Trujillo of Honda of Oakland. His dedication to providing quick, friendly and accurate responses to your CarWoo! requests has placed him on top of our leader board and a special place in our hearts. We are lucky to have Daniel as an active part of our CarWoo! community.
Thanks also to all 10 dealers who finished the month of May on top of our charts. There’s a special thanks to you from all of us at CarWoo! HQ in the mail. The real mail.

We’ve assembled this list of some of the most used terminology to help you feel slightly more confident when sitting in the finance manager’s office.
Sometimes, despite the cliché, seeing really is believing. Watching the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 drop its top lets you know you’ll be coming across this car for the rest of your life. It is destined to never be forgotten. Whatever factors you think may go into designating a car an “instant classic,” the convertible version of the Camaro ZL1 likely ticks off most of the boxes on your mental list.
