I just want to say that Changli EV is cool and good, just like the Republic of China and a democratic Hong Kong.

I’m more interested in the F-150 hybrids with integrated generators. Range and towing cancel each other out in an EV, but a hybrid that gets decent mileage, can tow, and can act like a generator? Winner winner.

They’re two, they’re four, they’re six, they’re eight
Sequential turbos hauling freight
Big and chrome and forged, it’s true!
They’re the Forced Induction Crew
All with different roles to play
trading goods or pinks the same
Down the hills and round the bends

I had a 2016 Nissan Sentra rental once when my car was in an accident. Coming up an on ramp and tried to merge on the highway with a semi coming up behind, for a moment i thought that was the last car I’d ever drive!!! Oh and the interior plastic was worse than the happy meal toys from McDonald's.

It’s hard to wrap my head around the idea that someone would willing buy a QX80, and then someone else would willingly steal it, presumably with the thought that still another person would want one. I mean yes, after its face lift it’s probably no longer the ugliest car for sale in America, but still...

Cmon, my car is over 20 years old and it’s lights are more than adequately safe. better lighting is always welcome but what we’ve had has been, generally speaking, FAR from unsafe. the key here is to understand that the test is Read more
