      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.

      In my scientific sample of one TDI with DSG, no problems in four years.

      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...

      Some businesses and governments here are buying electric cars for employees that just need to run around town. The limited range is an advantage, to keep the cars where they belong. The low operating...

      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%.

      I'd rather wait for the Apple system. This one has too many parts redundant with the phone. I like the larger screen, but I keep my car for a long time, and the software will be as obsolete as the...

      I think Camry looks bad for what it is. I'm not buying it to look exciting.

      Hybrid SE is brilliant. This is what Camry has needed for years.

      XSE is a good marketing idea and if I was designing ...

      No. Murder is wrong, even if the victim steals my car. Even if state law says it's justified, to me it's still murder.

      Imagine if I let the guy live. I make a claim and the insurance company buys...

      Why do you think that the Golf TDI won't have independent rear suspension? How about GTD? Is that going to have an IRS? How about Audi A3 diesel? IRS? I thought MQB was supposed to make this kind of...

      There is spare capacity coming to the electric grid. As more efficient lighting and appliances come on-line, people will be using less electricity. The electric grid needs to be modernized, but that...

      I don't think it would be popular everywhere in the country, but I expect there would be 5 GTEs sold just in my immediate neighborhood.
