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.

Navigating to and around this site is again veeerrrry sloooooooowww..........
#67 of 88 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.
#68 of 88 Agreed with all- new "What's Hot" is terrible

So....Edmunds, you screwed the pooch on this one- IL was a great site. The new site is terrible and I find myself frustrated with the poor organization and navigation. I don't think I'll be visiting this site nearly as much anymore.

Sadly, I must concur. I used to visit IL every day, often multiple times a day. I no longer even bother with the What's Hot section. It is dated-looking, delivers content very awkwardly, has tiny images and there is a severely restricted comment facility. I will find other sites. This is just really sad and quite awful.
#70 of 88 Bring back IL!

Add me to the list of frustrated users. If there is any way to roll back to the old Inside Line, I would hope that Edmunds considers it. The redesign/merge/lobotomy/whatever you want to call it is a resounding dud, in my opinion.
