Brose’s New Ideas for Old Technologies Commented on: 1 year ago (February 28, 2016)

Yea, I wonder about the hood that barely opens. I assume mechanics who need to be underhood would know how to get there. And yes, even the engineer demonstrating the "automated load fixation"...

Cadillac Growing Up With CT6 Flagship Commented on: 1 year ago (February 1, 2016)

Direct from Cadillac Communications:
Estimated 0-60 (sec.) 6.1 for 2.0T
6.0 for 3.6L
5.3 for 3.0L twin-...

Boxster Gets 4-Cyl. Power and 718 Designation for ’16 Commented on: 1 year ago (January 27, 2016)

Good catch Jlesaffre. That's 280 lb.-ft. of torque from 2.0L turbo-4, which converts to 380 Nm. Sorry about the mixup. Story fixed now.

10 Best Engines Field as Broad as Ever Commented on: 2 years ago (December 9, 2015)

VW, Audi Excluded From 10 Best Engines Testing Commented on: 2 years ago (October 9, 2015)

And hopefully VW will shed enough light fairly soon so we're all seeing this episode a bit more clearly.

Road to MBS in Colorado: Pure Michigan Kick Commented on: 2 years ago (August 5, 2015)

Understood, Jefe von Q, but most modern automatics are more fuel-efficient than manuals, so you can see where that trendline will take us as CAFE requirements tighten up. As for the diesel, I've...

Chrysler Building Ram 1500 Diesels, But Sales Lag Commented on: 2 years ago (July 21, 2015)

Excellent question. Selective catalytic reduction, which injects urea into the exhaust stream to burn off oxides of nitrogen, is not cheap. There's also a particulate filter that adds cost. Yes,...

Finally, Voice of Reason Commented on: 2 years ago (July 9, 2015)

If we transition to fully autonomous vehicles by addressing that remaining 20%, I may be the last person to believe the technology will get me safely to my destination.
