The second Jalopnik article this week about how crappy Alfas are design wise, but you love them unconditionally. Perfect example of car enthusiasts being impractical nutcases. » 4/17/15 3:47pm Yesterday 3:47pm

Meh, most of the parts you called out are of people “playing” music, and since they took a “music video” approach with this ad, I don’t feel like those scenes are different than what you’d see in any music video. People play instruments and sing in weird places in music videos. » 4/17/15 3:13pm Yesterday 3:13pm

Venza. Looks nice enough, would be comfortable, tied for most practical/functional with the CRV. Compass and 500L too objectionable. Versa sedan too sedany. Mirage too small to put lots of stuff in. » 4/17/15 12:29pm Yesterday 12:29pm

Almost every car that a smartwatch owner would own has a clock in it. They have no reason to check the time on their wrist. Ban all watches in cars! » 4/17/15 11:30am Yesterday 11:30am

While I agree that wagons are awesome and totally the way to go, to say that 5 cubic feet of cargo space is inconsequential isn't really true. 5 cubic feet is the equivalent of more than 4 20" box fans stacked on top of each other. Or, if you don't have 4 box fans laying around, 3 carry on bags. You're telling me a… » 4/16/15 12:46pm Thursday 12:46pm

Even if you could, I would suggest shipping over driving. Don’t know where you live, but let’s just say Columbus. 82 miles of range for a 2000 mile journey means you need to recharge 24 times to get home. If you have to use a standard 120V charger you’re looking at 20 hour recharge time and therefore 20 DAYS… » 4/15/15 1:05pm Wednesday 1:05pm

You’re in Europe...and you rented an auto transmission? In my experience you have to pay extra for an auto transmission in Europe....why did you rent a car with an auto transmission? I has confusion. » 4/14/15 3:40pm Tuesday 3:40pm

4th Gear: I think “Wan” in Chinese means 10,000, and “Xiang” means “feel like doing” or “ideas”. So basically, “Wanxiang” is “10,000 things we feel like doing.” They’ve got money, and they’ll spend it on all sorts of things - solar, auto parts, batteries, real estate. Wherever they think they can make more money. » 4/14/15 9:30am Tuesday 9:30am

Are you telling me an LS400 can run indefinitely without an energy source? If the Lexus engineers found a formula for a perpetual motion machine, the oil crisis (and probably all of our energy problems) would be solved! Unfortunately, it wouldn't prevent parts from wearing out. » 4/13/15 2:46pm Monday 2:46pm

Hopefully Nigel isn’t in charge of drawing the specs. Would hate to end up with a 16” Fusion. It’s not their job to be as confused as Nigel. » 4/10/15 2:56pm 4/10/15 2:56pm

You can do this now...all you need is a bluetooth OBDII reader, a car, and this app: http://www.soundracer.se/?p=514 . I drive a Shelby V8 to work every day! » 4/10/15 12:15pm 4/10/15 12:15pm

Its not the hybrid crap that ruined it. T was the focus on thriftiness and efficiency. Electric instatorque can be fun, but they didn’t priorutize that anywhere but in marketing, or give it enough power to accompany that. » 4/08/15 8:47pm 4/08/15 8:47pm

And more NOx and particulate. (And one barrel of crude makes fewer gallons of diesel than gallons of gas) » 4/08/15 1:10pm 4/08/15 1:10pm
