      Yup, like Sporin, this here is Subaru country and yet nearly without exception, every Subaru owner I know of who has their car past ~110k ends up with headgasket issues. There is always talk that 'so...

      Above 60? Nope. To 60, it's likely a wash and the Tesla is probably a heck of a lot easier to do it in.

      Off the line it's no contest. The P85d will pull harder by what I'd wager to be a good...

      I am surprisingly interested in this. But then I like boxy, utilitarian vehicles, and this one does it right with a good amount of character. Price is right, I'll have to see the size in person, but...

      I too find this position odd. I have found Volvo's to be reliably simple to work on, with the engineers who designed them usually thinking ahead to how the car will need to be serviced later in life....

      Bags are essentially clothing, so hard to know what your style is, but I bought my first Tom Bihn bag last year http://www.tombihn.com/ and it is truly fantastic. It had to grow on me a bit over...

      Again, where do you live? If it's very cold most of the time as you keep telling us, this is less likely to happen. This happens a lot in areas where it may be at or just above freezing during the...

      Which is pretty much what I said earlier. :)

      This post was just pointing out that there was no particular technical hurdle at the homeowner level to installing a more powerful charger as was...

      I owned the same S4 for years. It's not what it costs to buy or sell. It'll cost you more to fuel, insure, and maintain that S4 BEFORE anything breaks or wears out than it does to lease a LEAF.

      Says the guy with the B5 S4 when many EV's lease for less than $250/month. :laugh:

      I guess I'm not following. Any normal 220v/30a circuit that any home already has installed can do 6.6kW (less in reality - but still way way more than 3.6kW). If you're installing a dedicated line,...

      First hand experience? Of what sort? Be specific.

      Tax credits are absolutely a reasonable solution to push a budding industry. ICE powered vehicles have and continue to have large subsidies...

      It's hard to say why GM chose to limit the charge rate. I suspect that from their user data they found that the vast majority of the charging was done overnight at home or during the day at work...

      Yes, but by the time the Model 3/Bolt actually make it to market, Tesla should have the gigafactory online which should cut the cost of the battery pack, by far the most expensive part of a 30k EV,...

      I have to admit, I've gotten used to having the touch screen in Win 8 on my Surface Pro. As stated, there are times when it's just easier to tap an element on the screen than navigate the mouse to...

      Yes. A 120v/15a circuit has a maximum charge rate of just 1.8kW. (Less in actual practice)

      This would be great. And my wife would be extremely jealous to the point that she'd probably end up driving the car most of the time. :)

      Thanks all.

      Yeah, between living at the top of a hill, and in an area where it is below freezing 4 months of the year, my PiP runs the engine in many circumstances I'd prefer it not to.

      Mine...
    19. Can you or other Volt owners clarify this for me?...

      Can you or other Volt owners clarify this for me? It's one of the things I dislike about my Prius is that I end up running the engine so much in the winter on short trips.

      What is the temperature...

      While I think the original post referenced that meme, GM's response was serious. Blend in this case refers to the ability of the vehicle to move seamlessly between gas and EV drive depending on load....
