    Thanks. And all because I placed a cube type shelf perpendicular to the desktop, and a little further away! I know I'll be able to use it for other things at one time or another.

    So, my take on the Diesel "Scandal"

    Fine, but that wasn't what he was arguing about. His argument was about diesel efficiency v. hybrid efficiency. And the Volvo S90 PHEV sounds really good... more like a 5-cylinder than a 4... not sure how they did that one.

    Subaru News: Subaru Still Sees Traditional Cars As Important

    The 3 box sedan will never die, and gas prices are rising, SUV prices are rising, at some point the economy will take a downturn and people won't be looking at $40k mid-size crossovers for transportation when they can get a mid-size sedan for $30k. I think people do like AWD though, Subaru is smart to make that standard. if they keep these cars fresh they will get sales when Ford leaves the market.

    Subaru News: Subaru Still Sees Traditional Cars As Important

    AWD is NOT fuel efficient at all compared to FWD. Since Subaru has an all-AWD lineup, they will need a cheaper FWD sedan or two sooner rather than later.
  6. EVs comprise 1% of all new car sales, and that is optimistic. Somebody in some lab will probably find a new way to create a battery without cobalt unless multiple new discoveries of cobalt ore are found and mined soon.

    Cars that should come be brought back (And how)

    I saw that, I was researching Tacomas and considering one for purchase. Would be cool to have a ZR2 Duramax manual, or even a Z71 with six speed stick.

    Subaru Still Sees Traditional Cars As Important

    Ford's announcement of dropping most of their lineup of traditional cars likely caused a number of automakers to consider doing something similar. One automaker that will not be doing this is Subaru. Dominick Infante, Subaru’s national manager of product communications told Motor Trend one of the key reasons they keeping traditional cars is increasing gas prices. “Gas prices are starting to come up now. So a good hedge for better economy is having a sedan,” said Infante. “So we still make the Impreza and the Impreza hatchback. They do get better gas mileage than say a comparable CUV like the Crosstrek so we do sell those so if the market does change that’ll help sales of sedans.” Subaru's entry-level Impreza helps bring first-buyers in and performance models like the WRX/STI and BRZ draw in customers in their late 20s and early 30s. Still, Subaru's car lineup is taking it on the chin. Here are the sales numbers through April, Impreza: 22,287 (Down 16.3% YTD) Legacy: 14,730 (Down 13.9% YTD) WRX/STI: 9,854 (Down 8.2% YTD) BRZ: 1,286 (Down 10.1% YTD) Their crossover lineup is doing slightly better. Again, here are the sales numbers through April, Crosstrek: 45,728 (Up 66.6% YTD) Outback: 58,205 (Up 2% YTD) Forester: 50,783 (Down 9.7% YTD) Source: Motor Trend

    I've bought the Amazon Basics ones from Amazon with no problems..in general, the cables, (phone charging cables, etc) from Amazon's in house store brand (Amazon Basics) have been fine in my experience. https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Extension-Cable-Male-Female/dp/B00NH136GE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1527033764&sr=8-3&keywords=usb+2.0+extension+cord

    That one car...

    You always wanted to drive. EVERYONE has that one car they've either seen, read about, knew someone had (Personally or at the office complex/on the block/etc.) that they've always wanted to drive and experience, but haven't yet for whatever reason (Like dealers not letting you unless you're actually gonna buy it) Got a lot of cars, but to keep it simple, gonna list... Mk2 TT RS! Even before I owned a Mk1 225 Roadster, even before I drove a mk2 3.2 and was disappointed with it's jelly soft clutch, always loved this beast and would love to own one! While I'm new here, should be picked up on I'm a manual guy, so it's Mk2 or Bust, even if Mk3 is supposedly better That's my One car, how about you?

    Be nice to see a new Trans AM, and a revived Solstice What I say we need is a Compact pickup that can be fully loaded, 4x4 AND offer manual! If Toyota can do it, why can't everyone else?

    Tesla's Model 3 Gets Even More Expensive

    GUYS, CORRECTION. THE CHEVROLET BOLT IS A CROSSOVER ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURER. IT CAN BE FOUND IN THE ONLINE ORDER GUIDE UNDER "CHEVROLET TRUCKS". lol
  20. Oh but there is no comparison in sound magic. I would much much rather hear the XTS-V Sport under my foot than the Hoover CT6 Pee-HEV.

  22. Yeah not only do you waste a legendary name like Mach 1, but you do it on a tarted up Focus Electric.

    This became a random issue all of a sudden. I've got electrical extension cords but, for the first time in my life, I need to buy a male-to-female (or vice versa, whatever) USB 2.0 extension cable about 6' to 10.' The big box stores with recognizable names charge ridiculous amounts for these. From unknown third party retailers through known merchants, they run from $3 to $10. Just as good? Never bought one before. Thanks!

    Tesla's Model 3 Gets Even More Expensive

    But the #2 thru at least the #8 best selling EVs in the US are hatchbacks. Bolt finished #2 last year on the EV charts, and so far is #4 this year.

    Hatchbacks don't sell very well in the US at all. I wish they did... Well not ones that look like the Bolt.

    Tesla's Model 3 Gets Even More Expensive

    Bolt is a small hatchback, which are gaining in popularity, vs. the Model 3 as a sedan, the fastest shrinking vehicle preference. Model Y should have been built first.
