It’s your call, folks.  Is Yahoo trying to single-handedly save GM, Ford, and Chrysler, or does it just suffer from ridiculously bad timing?  Either way, something interesting’s occurred, as the company has seen fit to freshen Yahoo Autos.

A Yodel Anecdotal post describing the move encourages readers to examine the 2009 Toyota Prius page.  Lesley Kao writes, "You’ll find the page is now cleaner and easier to use, especially for reviewing the specific trims available.  Selecting the Touring package allows you to then drill down to more detailed information including bigger photos, virtual tours, comprehensive user reviews and expert reviews from partners like The Car Connection, as well as pricing data, including our new streamlined price with options functionality."

Kao then continues, "We’re also pleased to introduce hundreds of new vehicle videos through WheelsTV as part of this launch – like a virtual test drive to save you time before you hit the dealerships."  And in the event you’re not in the market for 2009 or 2010 models, much of the same stuff is supposed to be available for cars from 1997 forward.

The overall result is nice enough, putting Yahoo Autos more or less on par with most other vehicle research sites.  It lacks knockout features, though, so the update may not attract a lot of new users.  Also, even some of the current offerings don’t work so well.  Look up the Lotus Exige (a $60,000 sports car), for example, and Yahoo Autos not-helpfully reports that people who visited the page also viewed the $350,000 Lamborghini Murcielago and the $20,000 Mazda6 sedan.

We’ll see what happens, then.  At least the major car companies haven’t made any headlines so far today.
