So Nissan goes from having 2 truck based mid-sized SUVs to none after converting the Pathfinder to a crossover. It was the right move to go crossover for the Pathfinder although in my opinion they...

I wouldn't be too hard on Samsung, we are at a stage where the progression in phone tech has slowed drastically compared with a few years ago. A fundamental design change would make the phone worse....

I had read that the new Prius was supposed to get conventional behind the wheel gauges. Apparently, this will not be the case. Interesting that they would stick with the center gauges that are...

The battery pack in a Tesla Model S costs about the same as a Toyota Camry. I don't see how they ever bring down the costs of electrics to the equivalent ICE cars. No government intervention (tax...

Sorry you couldn't get more use out of it. Looks like a good financial hit after putting only 9K miles on it. Apparently you got the $32K Leaf for about $18K. And really, this competes with ICE...

Big grills do look more modern. Cars with small grills (go check out the '90's) look so outdated now. They look weak. The large grills add boldness, presence, and better distinction. Not saying all...
