    Subaru Plugs-In the 2019 Crosstrek: Comments

    Yes, kind of pricey..that's in the upper Outback price range. I wouldn't buy one of these over an Outback at the price.

    Hyundai Palisade leaks out ahead of LA Auto Show: Comments

    Curious about the platform...I assume it's a unibody FWD/AWD w/ the short front wheel to door distance. Though wasn't the Veracruz BOF RWD/AWD a decade ago?

    No surprise, these are major metro areas with a large pool of tech talent, and likely to attract more tech talent. Now I'll probably get recruiters contacting me often about Amazon gigs in those locations. I get recruiters several times a month pinging me about gigs at Amazon in Seattle and Tempe. On a related topic/rant, yes it's good to have in-demand, marketable skillz--but it gets tiresome when people contact me through Linkedin w/ positions in Columbus, Cincinnati, Atlanta, etc when it's clear from my profile that I live in the Cleveland area... I still get a lot of people contacting me about gigs in Denver, though I haven't lived/worked there in over a decade...
  4. Well, it's definitely not bland anymore. And in white w/ the black roof and red interior, it really stands out amongst the black, silver or white generic midsize appliances.

    Nissan News: Nissan To Oust Carlos Ghosn After Being Arrested

    So it sounds like 'Le Cost Cutter' is actually 'Le Tax Dodger'.
  6. Interesting..way more flashy than previous Toyota sedans. Maybe they can come up with a slogan like 'we build excitement!'.

    2020 Toyota Corolla Becomes Much Bolder: Comments

    Except for the GTI, Civic Si & Type R, Focus ST and RS and a few others, this is a class of car that thrives on boring...just as their buyers want it.

    Industry News: What Vehicles Depreciate the Slowest?

    True, anything 15 years old/150k miles is going to have issues. Been there, done that. Won't don't it again.

    Industry News: What Vehicles Depreciate the Slowest?

    Real SUVs to me are on dedicated RWD/AWD platforms or truck BOF construction. Wranglers, Grand Cherokees, the larger Range Rovers, Land Cruisers, Tahoes, Escalades, etc. Not weak transverse engine FWD car-based CUVs. Vehicles such as a Wrangler or G-class are certainly more ruggedly built than some transverse engine FWD appliance...and off road capable.

    Industry News: What Vehicles Depreciate the Slowest?

    Real SUVs may be more rugged and longer lasting, but you are talking about CUVs---which are just common FWD transverse engine appliances---just tall cars, nothing special. Alas, consumers don't distinguish between SUVs and CUVs.

    Cadillac News: Cadillac Drops the CT6 Plug-In Hybrid For the U.S.

    Maybe a tie-in with an Ant-Man movie? Not sure if I saw that one. The GMC product placements in the opening scenes for Sunday Night Football (or Monday Night Football) are pretty cheesy also...

    Have fun..that sounds like my kind of vacation. Wine, water and mountains.

    Yes, not feasible in the US. Getting a driver's license is a way more expensive and lengthy process in other countries also..

    Yes, I think inclement weather is one of the big issues that will prove difficult to achieving Level 4 or Level 5 autons. I'm assuming some sort of radar or x-ray cameras could be used to see the road surface under the snow, ice, etc. I was under the impression that some European countries had foul weather training as part of their driving licensing programs...I know in the US getting a license is trivially easy.

    Nasty weather driving forces drivers to focus on driving, which is a distraction from playing on their phone like some are used to....driverless cars are needed for such useless drivers that shouldn't be on the road, IMO... I saw the 'moved from dry states' phenomenon when I lived in Colorado..so many people moved in the late 90s-early 00s from Texas and So Cal, had no clue how to drive in inclement weather. Having grown up driving in NE Ohio, I found Colorado's winter driving easier, since there usually wasn't ice but dry powder.
