Tony Pimpo is a young automotive journalist who lives in Northern California. He believes the future of the automotive industry will depend in a large part on the recommendation of enthusiasts and Generation Y. More than ever, automakers lately have realized the power of Gen Y. Not only in regards to buying power, but in driving opinion and spreading a brand’s message through the internet and various forms of social media. His appreciation for cars formed at an early age, thanks to his dad, who has always been involved with cars in different ways over the years. Tony has contributed to various websites in his pursuits, and is on staff at GMInsideNews, where he has been writing since the age of 12.

GM Signs Deal With SPNA For Saab Warranty Coverage

If you bought a new Saab in 2011 or 2012 (don’t all raise your hands at once now…) you would know that these cars were sold “As Is.” That means no warranties expressed or implied, or a guarantee for parts or service in the future. A risky purchase indeed. The lack of a warranty resulted […]
