Re: A bad cell and a reduce range

The bad cell discussions makes me think back about a problem with the old VW bugs. (I earned to drive on a black '61 bug and rebuilt a couple of engines on bugs and vans). They were air cooled back then and number three cylinder would many times run too hot. The problem as I recall was an oil cooler...

Has anyone heard or have personal experience with purchasing their own car at an auction after the lease has run out? What is the used market looking like? 2012, ES mod...

Re: Kia Soul EV commercial

Great video. Very cleaver. My daughter told me about this last night at dinner. Unfortunately, this car will have limited distribution on the west and east coasts only. Can you say, "Compliance car". Too bad, the specs look good. Rats, one less car to choose from when my lease expires in F...

Re: I replaced my i-MiEV with this

Happy driving with the new car. The spark is definitely a car I would consider after my lease expires except they are not being sold in Texas or nationwide. This car has a definite advantage over the I-miev and the Leaf as far as a greater range. The spark is kind of in a range class by itself. Come...
