    Audi News: Audi wants to give you all the green lights

    I get the concept but I think people using such a system would anoy me. As 442 stated, if the lights are on some kind of timer it may work. However if they are on sensors I could see myself cussing at some driver slowing down for a red light that will not turn green until cars are tripping the sensor. I don't know how much this feature will cost, but whatever the cost is I could do without it. I could also do without people trying to use a feature like that making traffic worse because they don't understand how things work.

    Yeah, I know. But I've driven the proposed route 3 times in the last 5 months. It's about 300 miles of straight flat nothing. I regularly see people doing 100+ in that stretch of highway. I don't simply because I don't want the ticket that could come with going that fast. But it sure would be nice to take a significant chunk of time off of that Journey. And with dedicated high-speed Lanes it would certainly be safer than what's happening there now. At any rate, I don't think it will ever happen. Especially being California. It will likely never be more than just a proposal.

    This would be nice but I don't think it will ever happen. https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/no-speed-limits-california-considering-faster-lanes-on-two-highways/ar-BBTOU0y

    2020 Jeep Gladiator Leaks Out (We Think): Comments

    I'm sure it does. I believe it is a federal mandate thing. All new vehicles sold after a certain time must have a back up camera. With that said, I would not be surprised to see other options for trailering borrowed from the Ram.
  6. I'm so freaking tired of that argument / stereotype. I'm not going to go on another rant about it right at the moment but maybe when I have more time,,,,
  7. Quoted for absolute truth. Because GM will probably shove it into as much as possible, while making the 5.3 a price premium over it. Then offer it on almost every trim level to get them into more. Kinda like Ford does with the Eco VS the 5.0. You know, the exact opposite of what they do with the diesel. So people wouldn't exactly be choosing it as much as it's what's available without costing more. I could be wrong though.
  8. That needs to be addressed before someone gets seriously hurt or worse. It's very common for people to have their head out the window for better tire placement spotting. And apparently it's not just the trucks. Then there is sticking owners with a very expensive tab for a problem that shouldn't exist.
  9. I have found many drivers aren't aware of much at all if anything since texting became big. And aware of even less onee smart phones became the norm.
  10. Batteries get hot when charging. How did they work around throwing more juice at the battery without overheating/boiling issues?

    Tested: How Cold Weather Affects EV Range

    I have lost over half my range in ICE vehicles. You two are doing it wrong

    Tested: How Cold Weather Affects EV Range

    Running the heater and defogger drastically reduces my range. More so than the weather. Around 30 miles of range can drop to around 20 miles simply because of turning on those accessories. The heater in my car is a serious energy hog. I can't speak for other cars like Leaf, Bolt, an do on. Just my personal observation. The AC doesn't have as dramatic effect. It's about to get hot where I live. Do I will soon have a better idea just how much the heat and AC will affect things. I personally still would not buy a battery powered only.

    Tested: How Cold Weather Affects EV Range

    I've noticed about a 1/3 drop in range during could weather. Keep in mind it doesn't get that cold where I live.
  14. It seems this engine was designed from the ground up for truck use. Reviewers have said it has more of a diesel torque curve. I guess I jumped the gun when I said coming to a Camaro near you. Unless they are able to retune it somehow.
