      Great news. Now we just need to get a whole bunch more states onboard. Also, I'm sure the dealer lobby is not just going to roll over and accept this ruling either.

      a couple of the other posts reminded me, I've already been through this - twice.

      You didn't really specify anything short of runs to local hardware stores, so I'm guessing you aren't worried about...

      2wd gives you a ton of options. For the kind of stuff you're describing I'd say buy the cleanest 2wd domestic full sized truck you can find. With $5k my money would be in an early 2000's chevy full...

      I like it. So with the 5 door hatch setup is this sized pretty comparably to the Fit?

      Past couple of free days have been spent working on the plumbing supply and a little on the electrical. I'm in a bit of a funk and really just want to take a few days off to do jack squat, but that...

      No worries. The state incentives seem to fluctuate quite a bit. A few years ago you could get HOV passes and pretty hefty state breaks in a lot of places. Most of that has gone away and all many...

      I think you're confusing the federal tax incentive with a state perk. Federal is $7500 - afaik Texas isn't offering anything additional.

      Congrats OP! It's fantastic seeing so many people getting onboard with the EV movement. I'm hoping the next wave of EV's that top 120-150 miles of range is my ticket in.

      That sucks, I really hope the guy just comes clean and gives you the money back. He should absolutely not be allowed to do any kind of home repair for pay with that kind of quality.

      I'm still waiting to see my first one of these anywhere around DC. I haven't even noticed them at the dealerships I drive by.

      LOL at the folks trying to downplay the practicality of CUV's by throwing out $45-80k station wagons (and particularly ones that aren't even available in the US).

      I don't like wasting vacation days to take the car to the shop, and I like to be reliable for my family and work, so boring it is. If we're talking about a spare vehicle, then I have no issue with...

      We have. It doesn't mean I won't consider various hatchbacks or full sized SUV's in the future, but our CUV is pretty fantastic for 98% of what we do on a day to day basis.

      The perfect range extended car for me would be 100 miles of EV range, so I would never have to commute on gas, with the ability to go anywhere else on gas on a moment's notice. I'd like to see GM...

      Sorry, I thought I was linking an article I read earlier on the same site. I'm not positive which article it was now, but they thought that it wouldn't be the Volt afterall. I'll have to dig that up...

      Glad to see more progress on this. At the rate Tesla wants to build cars, one gigafactory may not be enough, but this is a huge step toward the model III being a reality.

      Bringing this thread back up because I figured it was better to respond to this article already posted than create a brand new thread related to it. Greencarreports has been indicating that the new...

      I'd say they're more pessimistic just on the basis that they don't employ a bunch of CC antagonists.
