Steve, do you have any manufactures that you find are more cooperative and giving when customers are having issues? I ask because I went though a 10 month ordeal with Ford. It's a long story, but did end up with them repurchasing the vehicle. Anyway, while dealing with that, I heard from numerous sources including… » 9/26/14 4:07pm Friday 4:07pm

Or to put it more accurately, Torque is a measurement of forced applied. Horsepower is an calculation / formula by James Watts to show work performed over time, using torque. So torque will definitively show the most force that can be applied (at any given point if your taking about, say a dyno graph,) while… » 9/23/14 12:52pm 9/23/14 12:52pm

Another example of why I'm in love with my Abarth. Because it's something I can use in many ways, including commuting to work, sliding around in the snow, taking it to auto x etc. It almost begs to have the snot beat out of it, and then it thanks you when you do. » 9/17/14 3:48pm 9/17/14 3:48pm

Kinetic energy and energy dissipation are a BIG deal when you look at the factors that make a crash more survivable, especially with high speeds like we get in racing. Having the ability for something heavy like the engine to… » 9/16/14 11:57am 9/16/14 11:57am

Why the Hell can't Mazda make an attractive front-end?! They ruined an entire generation of 3's (and Speed 3's). And to make it worse that was after, producing a generation of great looking 3's. It's even worse because the rest of the Miata is gorgeous, or at the very least, good looking. I don't understand the trend… » 9/13/14 1:22pm 9/13/14 1:22pm

True story I actually threw my keys out once. Had the key ring around my finger and a some trash from the car in the same hand. Threw it all out in one shot. After a few hours I remembered I had the trash in that hand, rummaged around and found them. » 9/11/14 3:00pm 9/11/14 3:00pm

I work for a dealer in NYC (Staten Island,) but not in sales so I can have my own uninfluenced option, or so I'd like to think. What I can say is that I feel like NYC (Manhattan Brooklyn mostly) has a lot of these dealers that act like their offering to sell you a car is doing YOU a favor. It's ridiculous and I can't… » 9/09/14 9:39am 9/09/14 9:39am
