Feb 8th 2011 2:50PM Funny how different media outlets frame this story. Rather than highlight the positive for Toyota like Autoblog does, the Atlanta Urinal Constipation used this tease for this article: "US: Toyota flaws mechanical."
Dec 18th 2010 8:54AM As a quick sidebar, I wonder if people on Usenet had this same debate about the GM EV1. A lot of people talk about how revolutionary the Volt is, but the reality is that GM designed, built and sold an all-new from the ground up purely electric vehicle more than ten years ago.
Oct 20th 2010 12:56PM No, I don't, nor do I have to. In my 20+ years of commuting, I haven't had the need to know more than 2 or 3 ways...and I know every restaurant, gas station and ATM along each path. Seems like if I can save $1,500 and not have a nav system in a car that will likely follow the same, short, familiar path every day, I would opt out of it.
Oct 20th 2010 12:42PM Just curious, but why does a vehicle that will be primarily driven back and forth to work, 20 miles each way, need a navigation system?
Apr 24th 2010 8:24AM Some say that in China the Stig is one in a million, which means there nearly 2000 just like him. All we know is he's called the Stig's Chinese cousin, MStiG.
Mar 25th 2010 1:35PM Beautiful car. But depreciation is going to hit this car, IMO, even more than other AMG's. Next year's E-Class AMG is supposed to have a twin-turbo V8, which makes this car a one-off of sorts. My friend just bought a perfect 2006 E55 with low miles for $37k. The car stickered new at more than $95k. Be patient and in a few years you'll be able to pick one of these up for $35k.
Mar 24th 2010 5:35PM We have a Super Speeder law in Georgia, so why not a Super Slowpoke law? If the reason for passage is deemed to be "safety" then I think there should be a fine plus an additional fee for each mile per hour under the posted speed minimum. (just to be fair to the speeders)
Feb 22nd 2010 2:09PM Beautiful car, but just to add to the pricing speculation...
A fully option Audi S5 comes in at over $65k, so I would have to think the RS5 will start at $75k or more. That makes it a lot more than the M3 it is supposed to compete with. Tough sell at that price, regardless of how gorgeous it is.
I hope I am wrong on this, as I was thinking about this as my next car once it hits the resale market in a couple years and takes the depreciation hit.
Feb 13th 2010 9:20AM I honestly do not believe that Danica's presence in NASCAR is going to bring a lot of new fans to the sport. NASCAR already has a very strong and passionate female fan contingent. I don't think it's sour grapes by Kyle, especially given how important the run-up to Daytona is for all of the teams to get television time to promote their sponsors. It's all about the sponsors and the more time to media talks about Danica and GoDaddy, the less time they are talking about established drivers with big ticket sponsors paying for the attention.
