    Daimler to launch Smart car in US in 2008

    Looks like auto companies are looking for fuel efficiency to be a hot topic during 2008, perhaps due to the presidential elections. Or will it still be "the high price of oil"?

    Out of the blue, I could not open the sunroof this past weekend, and still can't. I turn the dial knob either way and nothing happens. Any basics to check? I used the sunroof the week before, I don't recall doing anything funny with it when I closed it.
