Good I hope we can scare away a few more. The more expensive California gets the better. Let them go pollute some desperate fly over **** hole.

Bingo. Features and tech sell cars, build quality is irrelevant to the new car buyer. They'll just lease another new car when the the warranty runs out.

I'm guessing a new Mercedes would be a sweet ride for about 80k miles. Really sweet.

I got a 2016 Subaru for my dd. Good build quality. Very basic. Smooth ride. Does have a touch screen.

Love my 190e.

Awhile back, I ran into a woman whose son owned a business in California. The taxes were KILLING him. He decided to shop around and found that by moving the business to Texas, his taxes would drop by 50%. Easy decision, he moved the business to Texas and is enjoying the fruits of his labors. Not only that, Texas has better looking and FAR friendlier girls than Cali.

Cali needs to think about this: 100% of zero is zero. You can't tax a business that has vacated the premises. There is no telling how many companies that have chosen to pack it in and LEAVE Cali. As usual, Sacramento continues to operate in a comatose state......
