Illustration for article titled BMW Thinks CAFE Is Unfair, Wants Special Treatment

Instead of manning up and facing the engineering challenges brought on by the Bush Administration's 2011-2015 CAFE regulations, GM Ford Chrysler BMW is crying to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about how the new targets are "not feasible." Instead, the automaker is proposing a special category for manufacturers like themselves, which would allow them to make fleet-wide economy improvements of just 4.5% a year beginning in 2010. Yeah, pretty much a bunch of bellyaching from an automaker who's seen record sales the past few years. Sounds like somebody needs a nap. [Auto News, Sub. Req.]
