I can't seem to see any 'posts' (replies) to long term tests either, when I follow the main Edmunds' link to read them. Each editor's post has a "See full article and comment" link, but following it just shows the article, no comments, and no way to add any that I can see. If this is the improvement Edmunds' thinks is being made by merging InsideLine back into the main site, it's going to be removed from my Favorites soon. Half of the interesting stuff on IL was reader comments to the various articles.

I can't see any comments anywhere either.
After Edmunds killed Insideline, my time spent on Edmunds is less than 10% of what it used to be, if that's what they want to hear.

The "we're moving" post says that "there will be a commenting feature on LT updates. It hasn't been implemented yet but should be coming soon." That comment was posted yesterday.

So, no more responding to news items? I have to say, even if posting comments is eventually re-enabled for LT posts, I don't really find what I see from the Edmunds' site nearly as attractive or useful as what was on InsideLine.
This is a definite downgrade, so I hope Edmunds is saving lots of money, because I'm sure the number of page hits are going to drop significantly. I only really visit(ed) Edmunds when I was looking to buy or sell a car. InsideLine was my main resource for what is (was) happening in the automotive universe, and a place to see what other similar-minded (or not) people thought about it. The current content on Edmunds, even with 'links' to some former IL stuff, seems mostly centered around that 'researching' a new / used / selling my car mentality, rather than the car enthusiast feel that IL had.

Not sure where you are looking but comments for What's Hot > Car News is working for me. Look for the blue Comments box.

The implementation, like the rest of the section that is supposed to replace InsideLine, is just horrible though.

Yeh, not sure why, but the number of posts on boards I follow seems to have dropped significantly.

#67 of 163 New Site in not an upgrade

I'm sorry to say that I have found the new site quite disappointing. What I liked of the old format is that is seemed to be designed for true auto enthusiast. It was simple to navigate, something interesting to read everyday.
Now it seems like any other site, like Cars.com, or MSN Auto
The future cars section seems to have disappeared.
I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking this way.
