      It'd be interesting to see what they could do with a relatively low power but torquey engine, like their old 300 cu. in. straight 6 or the econo BMW eta engine from the '80s. Lots of people loved...

      New-looking OEM airbox (taken off and replaced with an intake when car was new) while the rest of the engine bay looks dusty like it has 50,000+ miles or whatever the case may be.

      New-looking OEM...

      The yellow EP3 looks pretty interesting in real life. I had a Vivid Blue Pearl one which fit the car well but was hard to keep looking nice. I wanted a white one but they were impossible to find.

      Not really, since this test simulates driving into a tree, telephone pole or something else totally non-deformable with the extreme outer edge of the vehicle (usually bypassing the bumper beam and...

      I hate the white/gray interior and what looks like fake stitching on the dash, but love the size, power and 6-speed manual availability -- basically a slightly longer Fit with more sidewall and...

      I get asked fairly often -- I don't just recommend cars I like; I kind of factor in the whole situation, like how religious the owner will be with maintenance, their tolerance for minor gremlins,...

      I have Lollipop on my Nexus 5 and don't have plans to upgrade until this phone starts breaking; hope to keep it for at least 2 more years.

      Android 5 is a nice upgrade -- the battery life is...

      Using MSRP to calculate support for a traditional penny pincher diesel option is kind of weird, especially on a Chevy where there are typically lots of incentives

      I rented a Corolla L (4-speed automatic) a few months back and it is an order of magnitude better than the old car. The suspension was pretty competent (not all floaty and loose like the old car)...

      I give a courtesy flash -- if it is ignored, my high beams come on and stay on. Enjoy those floating purple and green circles.

      Around here there are a lot of drivers with one low-beam bulb out...

      Growing up, my parents had an '86 Trooper; I inherited it as my first car. Literally everything broke on it at least once. The Prado is on a whole other plane of existence. I'd happily drive a...

      Prado is one of my favorite vehicles but I have no interest in the gas US version that only gets 14 MPG.

      Yesterday I took the Mirage over to the dealer for its first service (free) and was amused to see that they had a circa '02 eMac (PowerPC) in the waiting area for customers to use.
