Taking iPhone-like technology to the automotive console, MyLincoln Touch allows you to engage your car like you’ve never imagined before.

The Detroit Auto Show) earlier this week as a guest of General Motors. As always it is great to start off a new year with my “other family” of journalists, PR pros and automotive executives at what I call the mother church of the auto industry – Detroit.

Six Automakers Score 100 with HRC

HRC CEI 2009

9/2/2008 – The Human Rights Campaign Foundation just released its 2009 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and 6 of the 259 major U.S. businesses that scored a top rating of 100 percent are automotive manufacturers. Listed in alphabetical order they are: Chrysler, Ford, GM, Subaru, Toyota and VW.
