They removed this option from the Mazda 3 and 6 lines, so I’m surprised to see them adding it to other models. This was not an available option for my 2018 Mazda3 GT (which was mildly refreshed), but it was available as an option on 2017 and prior models (I think only with the 2.5l but I could be wrong). I guess they Read more

For me it’s not about the car, but how cool the music video makes the car(s) look.

Yeah I thought they would have done this long ago. It could give them a huge boost / enable better scaling so they can lower their production costs. Their other features like AutoPilot, charger network, etc could still give them an edge over competition.

Exactly this! But your argument is based on facts and logic, which we know are two things this administration loves to ignore.

I’ve called in a few drivers that I suspected were under the influence / for really egregious road rage. I’d rather call them in and give police the opportunity to prevent an incident than do nothing and hear about it in the paper later.

I still love these weird Nissans and I don’t quite know why.

I was thinking LS as well. You can get them with a super reliable V8, and it will have every feature in the world compared to a Corolla. They can easily fit two adults, two car seats, and a weekends worth of stuff. The styling is a bit meh but it still looks upscale and very respectable IMO. Read more

That was my initial thought as well. Even in photos it looks nicer, I have a hunch Porsche’s materials quality is well ahead of Tesla’s.

Those cars are utter s**t. I got picked up in one once (Uber) and was shocked at how run down it was for something that was nearly new. They really are shockingly bad.

The worst rental car I ever had was a Buick Verano. I was in Hawaii (landed in Kona and drove to Hilo) and had reserved a full-size sedan from Hertz, but no, I got a Verano. It was tiny, we had four people and we barely fit even before our luggage went in. Besides the fact that it felt incredibly cheap and was very Read more

I do take issue with the fact that some automakers bundle better headlights/safety tech with other stuff you don’t need, or only make it available on top trims (although this seems to be changing). I think this article blows it out of proportion a bit, but I see the point. Read more

I agree that tall, boxy vehicles are better without window tint. I actually think most SUVs, Minivans and Wagons look much better with tinted windows than without, but there is a caveat. Read more

When I was in Oakland visiting friends a few months ago, I thought the scooters would make for a fun activity to get some fresh air since I didn’t have my bike. My friend lives in West Oakland, admittedly not in the nicest area. I opened the Bird app and there were NO scooters available within walking distance, but Read more

Agreed, I was a passenger in a Taurus a few months back and I was surprised at how cramped and uncomfortable it was (I’m over 6' and the back seat was pretty small). The materials felt sub-par and I sat there wondering why anyone would buy that over a midsize like a Mazda6/Camry/Accord.

When I bought my Mazda (new) last year from a SF Bay Area dealer, they were upfront about the way the surveys work. The salesperson actually asked me to please either rate them a 5 on everything, or just tell them directly if I was dissatisfied so they could fix it, because corporate will “fail” them if they don’t get Read more
