    Best New Car UNDER $20k?

    All my vehicles have leather seating. The leather has held up quite well, and one vehicle is 18 years old. Cloth? Some of it in car upholstery is quite sturdy — and some isn’t. Usually an exam will tell which is which. What I avoid is leatherette, which is a thin plastic layer over fabric...

    Tesla cybertruck countdown!

    We don’t know the cost of the Tesla pickup, but nobody should underestimate the prices of conventional ones. A couple of years ago I was thinking of buying a fairly expensive car, and a friend said I should just get an F 150. So I looked at those and discovered that one with equipment I’d want...

    Best New Car UNDER $20k?

    Back to the Mazda 3 sedan, to get leather upholstery you have to buy thr Premium Package that runs the cost to just under $30K. And the cheapest version is just under $25K. I don’t know how firm the OP is on $20K. If he is not that firm, he might want to give one a test drive because all but the...

    Tesla cybertruck countdown!

    Eight hours driving a Tesla truck? I don’t know if that will work our well or not. With trucks used more locally, the EVs should be great.

    Does Mazda 3 have a leather upholstery option? I have recently observed that ant car (even Mercedes) has to have leather seats to avoid getting crap that does not last long.

    BTW, I just looked on the Nissan.com site, and guess what I saw? The 2020 Versa. So, yes, Virginia, there is a 2020 Versa!

    Dave Mustaine diagnosed with throat cancer

    Best of luck and wishes to Dave. People can joke about the cause, but the fact is that nobody really knows what causes (or increases the risk of ) many kinds of cancer.

    Best New Car UNDER $20k?

    Just test drive a 19 Versa, a Hundai, a Honda Civic, a A Kia,a Toyota Corolla, and a Mazda 3. Then make up your mind on which suits YOU best. You could also try out something in the Subaru Impreza line, but I don’t like their handling and lack of acceleration.

    Tesla cybertruck countdown!

    I think (FWIW) that a EV pickup would be a more convenient choice over an ICE truck than an EV car over an ICE car. As wildhawk says, they are very suitable for driving in a local area, such as for a business, ranch or farm. And, contrary to what else he posts, I read that they have huge...

    Ford Mustang Mach E officially unveiled.

    Olds, It sounds like I need to do some more current research on EVs, And education is why I post on this forum. If I can charge up an EV in 15 to 30 minutes, we are getting there, aren't we? And the performance of many EVs certainly is attractive to me as a sports car enthusiast. What is the...

    Ford Mustang Mach E officially unveiled.

    Olds, I am sorry, but I thought I read on this thread that the AWD "Mustang" SUV got something like 330 miles on a charge. I could be wrong. I'm old! And there may be more charging stations than when I looked up those on the Tesla site a couple of years back when I was looking to buy a new...

    Ford Mustang Mach E officially unveiled.

    I don't "dog" any EV cars. You must have me confused with another poster. The Mustang has a 330 mile range with 4WD, which is higher than any other EV I have heard of -- if there are higher ranges in others, what are they? And remember, Olds, I live in a remote part of the US where charging...
