Our iTunes feed for the Autoblog Podcast is still busted, thanks to the TV Squad debacle with an update gone wrong. We're still waiting on resolution of the issue, and the real fix may involve each and every one of you having to resubscribe. We'll let you know.

In the meantime, if you subscribe to The Autoblog Podcast via iTunes, you may not automatically receive this week's episode. The easiest workaround until we get this fixed is to use the link below to download the MP3 file directly and drag it into iTunes. We're terribly sorry for the inconvenience, thanks for your ongoing patience.

For Episode #178 of the Autoblog Podcast, Chris Shunk, Sam Abuelsamid, and Dan Roth cover GM's profit announcement, the delayed Honda Civic redesign, the 40 mpg fuel economy rating for the Ford Fiesta, and wistfully pine to have been part of our recent sports car comparison test. It starts with the Autoblog Garage and ends with a couple questions, with 82 minutes between snippets of theme music. See you next week!

      I think Honda is going to have no problem hitting 40mpg with the next Civic. They just upped the Accord's EPA with no major mechanical changes, to 34 highway with the 2.4, which ties the current Civic's.

      you are thinking of the Lexus v6. that has diff heads w DI and port fuel injection. it uses that instead of the intake tumbler devices that create beneficial turbulence at low rpm but get in the way of the top end torque levels.

      in is350 and i assume some other sedans

      GM's one quarter of profit doesn't mean it is out of the woods. If they were smart, they would start raising money to pay for its unfunded pension liabilities

      "GM projects that the contributions needed to meet its defined benefit plan funding requirements will total about $12.3 billion for the years 2013 and 2014, and additional contributions may be required thereafter."
