      In 2035, how easy will it be to get gas?

      I predict Tesla is a better bet to still be driving around.

      All the wireless parts of the system now are vulnerable. Remote entry systems are very simple. Hacks for them have been around for years. But it's so easy to physically break into cars that the...

      Toyota Prius, except they don't come in manual. With the price of gas today, you'll get a smokin' deal.

      Two years from now, when gas is back or even higher than before, sell it.

      VW doesn't really have the infrastructure to actually build to order.

      In the past, if you build to order and contact a dealer, you get to have a salesman look at your order and then search...

      High mass does not always equal safety. Here a few large vehicles that made the least safe list.

      nacimiento-fergusson road. Start from highway 1 on the coast of Big Sur, where you will think there could be nothing more scenic on the entire planet, and then drive east and find out how totally...
    8. Why Santa Cruz?

      I don't get the name. If it's Santa Cruz, CA, then the car is a very, very bad match for the namesake. Maybe if they were marketing a mountain bike?

      Young, impatient people who know everything,
      except the location of the speed trap where they now sit,
      parked, waiting for their ticket.

      Subaru owners change their vehicles infrequently. So their old Outback gets 18 MPG and eats tires. Compared to a VW that is more reliable (according to Consumer Reports), just as big as their 10 year...

      The coolest thing about the new Golf is that there's a plug-in hybrid with the potential for US release. Much as I love the BMW i3, the Golf is a better fit for my needs.

      The Golf TDI is a very popular car here. I doubt that the Mk 4 gets better mileage than a Mk 7, or is more reliable than a 2011 or newer TDI. I don't like getting the first year for a model, so I'd...

      It's required to be oxygenated if it's sold for motor vehicles. While Ethanol-free gas could contain MTBE, it's more likely to contain ETBE derived from ethanol.

      The appeal of an pure EV varies depending on your local geography. I live in a place where a solid 20 mile range would do a lot of good, like 95% if my trips. But because of my geography, I also...

      It's still b-01 just like the rest of the country. Bio-diesel is cheaper than synthetic additives for ULSD, so there is basically no commercial B-00.

      I live in a high-crime-rate town, so most of my friends do not lock. That way when someone wants to check if there is anything valuable in the car, they do not have to break the window. I lock...

      Great if you win your bet and make 8% per year. If you lose 8% per year, your GTI cost $100,000 or more. The average return in the stock market or in real estate is less than 8%.
