I don’t particularly care for that approach either, as it penalizes you for taking trips out of state (which makes sense from a gov. POV, why give other states your residents’ revenue?). I’d prefer that they issue a surtax on electric vehicles. Take the average amount of miles driven for a given area, calculate by… Read more
Illinois is talking about switching from taxing gas to taxing you for miles driven. It makes sense to me, but people are up in arms about it.
Fistfights? This is America, son.
1st: I feel like a buyback is penalty enough, to be honest, at least in terms of government penalties. What VW did was wrong, but do the thousands of employees and stakeholders who had no knowledge or responsibility really need to pay for what was done? Read more
Most likely depends on the state, but I doubt any state would fail one as of yet, as the owner isn’t at fault and the owner has no reasonable course of action for a fix. Once VW purposes a fix, I’m guessing things will change. Read more
1st Gear: I still see the TDi veedubs on the road but I’m wondering if state inspections are allowing these to pass? In short, are they still street legal? I may have missed a Jalopnik article on this topic so fire a link my way if it's easier. Thanks peeps!
They just don’t have the money and R&D capability for EV development even if they wanted to. They can make muscle cars and a good V8 so that’s what they’re doing trying to keep the boat from sinking until someone, anyone, buys them up.
If you look at OE job postings you’ll have noticed GM has been trying to hire hordes… Read more
Depends on the agency, the law enforcement can be pretty zealous about prosecuting online crime, especially when it involves child porn. Even if you’re ultimately cleared, there’s the legal costs and stigma of being tried for downloading kiddie porn.
This was the pinnacle year for the Impala, imho. I prefer the fastback version myself.
Everyone will, those 2025 CAFE figures haven't started budging (yet)
Neutral: Duel of The Fates will begin playing ominously in the background, then the double doors will slide apart to reveal not a Sith Lord, but a BP sign illuminated with REG UNL $4.009/gal. People will run and scream in pants crapping terror, and there won't be an Obi-wan to save us.
When I can buy one of these for 1600 bucks drive it into the ground for 5 years and then sell it for 1500 bucks. Yeah a little. Its the perfect disposable DD. If ya wad it up just get another.
4th gear: They are a premium. And if you’re cross shopping a Chevy Volt and Cruze you’d have to drive 500,000 miles to make up for the difference in price (assuming every mile was electric and gas at $1.80/gal holding steady). Read more
Reverse: 100 Million
Fingers crossed that at least a few automakers can see past the end of their noses and keep developing hybrids, EVs, hydrogen, whatever. Those that do it best will be kings when gas goes up again, which it will. It’s only a question of when.
I agree with your sentiment. I also think that maybe they’re being cautious by not giving any details even if it’s how to avoid falling prey, because some perv could trace the steps to find actual child porn. Just my 2 cents though. Like I said, I think your opinion is valid.
Well the warning seems rather unfounded anyway. So you’re browsing a site that contains illegal images, but if you don’t know the “correct” way to navigate (whatever that means), you would never come across those illegal images. Read more
