Test Drive Two of the Year's Hottest New Products, the Jaguar X-Type And Jeep Liberty, in This Week's Edition of TheCarConnection.com

Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from The Car Connection

    DETROIT, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Shift into all-wheel-drive, as
 TheCarConnection.com takes two of the year's hottest products out for a spin.
 Will the $29,950 Jaguar X-Type redefine the "affordable luxury" segment?  And
 is the Liberty a worthy replacement for the long-lived Jeep Cherokee?  See
 what TCC reviewers have to say -- and then get the details on what the Liberty
 might mean for ailing DaimlerChrysler.
     Speaking of that trans-Atlantic automaker, TheCarConnection's shutterbug
 spies offer an advance look at the '03 Chrysler CS -- the vehicle that could
 help revive the mass-market station wagon.
     Better buckle up!  The U.S. Supreme Court says you could be carted off to
 jail for any number of minor motoring offenses, such as violating seatbelt
 laws, having a taillight out, or an-out-of-date inspection sticker.
 TheCarConnection.com has the complete story.
     Children are three times as likely as adults to suffer from heatstroke.
 So why do so many parents think it's okay to leave their children locked in a
 hot car?  General Motors has a high-tech device that could save kids and pets
 from heatstroke.  TCC has the details.
     Other reviews this week include a little something for every taste and
 budget.  Check out the BMW X5 3.0i, the Chevrolet Venture minivan, and the
 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Ltd., and Subaru's wild WRX, in this week's edition
 of TheCarConnection.com.
     In business news: a $1.2 billion loss at DaimlerChrysler actually came as
 good news for the troubled company.  TCC explains why.  Diesels are cleaner
 and greener than ever.  So why are they all-but gone from the U.S. market?
 Here's the scoop.

 snarls with TCC's real-time traffic alerts.  Keep on top of the latest in
