To those of you who have asked: "Exterior design" is listed in both "Pro" and "Con" categories because it is the first thing folks love or hate about the car.

Cut-and-past link below for a great story on BMW's belief in the future of the inline 6 engine.
However, it has nothing to do with helping do-it-yourselfers. Those days are gone forever....

Good news is new sparkplugs no longer have to be changed regularly. Bad news is it can cost a fortune to have them changed when the time eventually comes.

Well said is228979. Most all the new gasoline GDI turbos are getting roasted by consumer activistsfor for disappointing real-world fuel economy. A very light foot is required to come close to...

Interesting how motorcycles have provided the foundation for several great automakers who are known for great engines. The most notable other example being Honda.

You make some valid points Jefe von Q. Proponents argue a hydrogen refueling infrastructure would not cost more in today's dollars than what the Alaskan pipeline cost in the 1970s. Hydrogen offers...

Brian, what do you think are the best interiors for this year? We're interested in reader opinions.

John, I agree the Focus EV is fun to drive and fine for short jaunts, but the fact remains it is a Ford Focus that costs $40,000 and requires at least one more vehicle in the garage for longer...

That's what I get for skipping Latin class in high school. Thank you Christie, is228979 and ussauto1.

So it's "Foci" instead of Focuses, "Prii" instead, of Priuses. Is it "Forti" instead of Fortes, "Geni" instead of Genesises? Who is making the rules now?

First-generation Prius Hybrid powertrain needs to be on our Mount Rushmore, along with original Ford V-8.

Jef von Q, as an auto writer I resent you saying I'm like a 16-year-old boy when I talk about cars. I believe I'm at least at the 18- or 19-year old level.

The latest Tesla controversy over battery range explains why auto makers are introducing a new generation of hydrogen fuel-cell powered vehicles. They have longer range and can be refueled quicker...

Apparently Murphy's Mount Rushmore only includes living presidents. I think we need to dig a little deeper. Although to Zoia's comments, I think original Hemi is overrated and the current version...

I'd have to think for a long while to come up with four, but Chevy small block definitely would be one of them.

I've been doing a lot of reporting on advanced internal combustion engines and components lately and I think this where we're going to see some really huge strides in next five years, with small 4...

So far I've only heard from a couple of critics who questioned our choice of the two Honda engines.

While their basic engine specs don't stand out, they are both very impressive to drive....

There seems to be quite a bit of discussion about the branding, but the car has been very successful considering the narrow niche it inhabits.

if EVs only are subsidized toys for the affluent, they will never catch on for mainstream buyers who need them for basic transportation. That will severely limit sales volume and positive...

This is interesting reading but "peak car" theory is headed for nowhere. As the late journalist Jerry Flint once put so aptly: "No one aspires to ride a bus."

There has been no shortage of mistakes in any era of the auto industry. I've learned a lot from readers the last couple of months. I'm looking forward to more comments.

Actually it is both. Beautiful cutaway that shows inner workings and layout.

Readers and Facebook friends have suggested 4-wheel steering, lost-foam casting, space frames, EDS, Saturn, Jack Nasser also belong on the list. I may gather these up along with others and write...

I think the new Fusion is gorgeous, but suggesting the new look is not inspired by Aston is disingenuous. Check out side-by-side images in February WardsAuto World here:
