      The GM V6 rips out to 7000 RPM pretty nicely but the Challenger really needs the V8, IMO.

      The 2.3T Mustang with the Performance Pack (the one in the pic you posted has it) is a pretty...

      A diesel and a slightly hotted up version of the 1.0T with eAssist.

      This is essentially a swoopier Ecosport, right? (Same Fiesta platform?)

      Costco has additional sizes on the website.

      I just bought about five of these - I like the blend fabric because they breathe a little better and don't fade so fast. This guy is pretty much...

      I have thought about those... I feel like there should be something the size/price of Mitsubishi i-Miev, with more of a sporty bent and less of a golf cart vibe. I feel like there is a need for...

      There have been a lot of comments how how they're so much cheaper to run and maintain that it makes up most of the difference. But maintenance on a basic Toyota is so cheap that it's almost...

      That is what we paid for ours new. You can get '19s for about the same price.

      They have various scenarios and if you scroll down there is one with cheap gas ($2.10 and electricity).

      I'll be ready then, especially if we can trade a little performance (0-60 in 7-8 seconds would be fine) for a little more range and getting the price down to $20-25k. I'm not comfortable leasing one...

      I'm an early adopter of most technology but I feel like EVs are still in the $7500 plasma TV stage.

      My Yaris is about the perfect use case for an EV since I pretty much only drive it to work...

      I ran into this with our Mitsubishi when the A/C stopped working properly at about 20k miles. It had 1 year/12k...

      Cut it with the sheep stuff. We do road trips once or twice a year. We have driven the Corolla to both coasts (east coast 3 times) and in 33k miles the total outlay on gas has been $2200. Adding...

      The best current, relatively attainable ones don't meet my needs given the price. I would definitely entertain the idea of something fun and funky like a $15-20k Honda E as a second car. But we are...

      No additives. Mainly, try not to drive it too roughly - avoid mechanical shocks, like slamming on the gas.

      I hit the rev limiter pulling out of the dealership when I bought my '03 Si -- it is...

      We do a drive like that a few times a year and the car gets a LOT of bugs and grime -- it takes a long time to polish it off (plus it always gets a few dings and chips in the front bumper cover). I...

      I'll probably buy two more. I like the carefree ownership of reasonably priced new cars, not having to worry about repairs or that new leak/smell/etc. The Corolla will easily last another 10 years,...

      I always go in if there are more than 4 or 5 cars. I usually eat Mexican food when out and about and normally want to hit up the salsa bar/get some pico.

      It asks so it can fill in the location/gas station information. I just have an icon that goes to m.fuelly.com (add to home screen).

      The Yaris ECU is on the firewall a few inches away from the exhaust manifold -- I guess these hardened systems can handle the heat.

      That looks like a pretty cool package with the downsized engine...
