      It sounds complex if the car is totaled, but most owners will still get the restitution amount. Just no buyback.

      Is there such a thing as top tier diesel? I thought that top tier designation is mainly from detergents and so on. But maybe those stations still have better quality or fresher fuel.

      Good job...

      I'm dense. Where are people finding this compensation chart that is being discussed?

      I expect that you will end up waiting much longer than a few months for VW to buy back your car.

      Never driven a vehicle with one of these gear selectors so I don't get it. Does pushing it all the way forward not put it in park or something? Or is there no feedback or way to tell what gear it's...

      Their first goodwill offer had a few conditions, one of which was something like people had to own the cars before the dieselgate news broke. I am sure the upcoming offers will have conditions as...

      VW may submit their plans tomorrow, but I'm not sure if we get to hear the plan until it's reviewed and approved or rejected.

      Autonomous cars don't have to be perfect. They never will achieve that. Simply being better than the average driver will be an improvement. And they can continue to improve from there, much more...

      If the key turns to the "off" position, won't the steering wheel lock too?

      Back on topic, I am getting tired of waiting to hear a solution. Heck, even knowing that VW has submitted a proposal for...

      I wonder how much of that LED headlight rating is due to the sharp cutoff that HIDs have. That would really reduce the headlight range if the aim is not optimal, whereas a typical halogen reflector...

      So were they just kidding when the March 24 deadline was set? Or was that one for something else?

      That one's tough as a cyclist. I wouldn't want to get too close to the parked cars in case somebody doesn't see me and opens a car door right as I'm passing by. Personally, I'd rather risk...

      VW doesn't have a lot of spare cash to buy companies right now.

      That's pretty interesting. A common perception about autonomous cars is that they will stick to the letter of the law and hold up traffic. In this case, it sounded like the car was following...

      No cars, gas, diesel, or EV, can sustain their performance in all foreseeable conditions. They will all suffer an efficiency penalty, with EV the penalty is just more severe. There isn't really a...

      Android Auto and Carplay are rendered on the phone then sent to the car's display, where the car's hardware more or less acts as a touchscreen monitor and displays it. The nav functions will only be...

      The loud fan noise in those trucks is often the fan clutch sticking. With a longitudinal engine, the cooling fan is simply connected mechanically to the engine by a clutch that slowly locks up as...

      I don't know if I'd call the Prius' two-motor setup more complex. It does have one additional electric motor, but doing so enables them to eliminate the clutch and entire automatic transmission that...

      10Ah is a measure of energy, not power.

      10Ah = 600 Amp-minutes = 36000 Amp-seconds. If you decided to empty the entire battery's capacity in 10 seconds, you could theoretically get 3600 amps...
