very odd interior and door handles


not to long now before you'll be able to test drive the dual engine P (performance) model 3. It'll make the one your dad has seem like a subaru!

and yes, i'm not crazy about the interior. hoping they restore some dedicated knobs & buttons in the model Y.

Man Buick is a strange thing these days. For an American car company, it is hardly that.

Small convertible - Poland (Opel)
Wagon - Germany (Opel)
Small crossover - China
Smallish crossover - Korea

You might want to think that they are playing 'best athlete', but all of those cars have some major quirks.

Well the radio is either disconnected or dead -- didn't even think to check that -- but the overall inspection only came to about $300

Here is a weird Pontiac observation, Ontario province is full of them. I was there twice in the last 2 years and it really stood out that these were all over the road. Maybe there is some secret Pontiac stash.

Model 3 w/dual motors available for order now with a 2-4 month delivery. Standard range battery models still 6-9 months out. I guess lots and lots and lots of reservation holders are waiting for the single motor, since they still have 400,000 reservations on the books and are only making 20K per month at this point.

Oh, and the performance model is available in 2-4 months also TCC!!!

EDIT: It's the "standard range" battery models that are still 6-9 months. Of course the single motor (like TCC's dad has) have been available all along, just with the long-range battery.

As I was leaving work, I approached my Prius, unlocked it with the keyfob (old habit), then sat down in it and nothing electrical was working. Dome light, dashboard lights, headlights, nothing. Couldn't get it to respond to the keyfob again either. After a minute or two I noticed a flickering check engine light in the corner of the main driver display area; I don't think that was present when I first got in.

Checked the manual, and yes, it is possible to jump start a Prius if the 12V battery is dead (which seemed likely). Went back into the office and found a coworker with jumper cables; got back to my car, popped the hood and then I heard something whirring. Got back in the car and behold! everything is back on. Except all my radio presets are gone, the clock is off, and the climate controls are all back to defaults.

yeah, that's a real head scratcher when it comes to hybrids (and even the earlier gen teslas). The 12v battery does nothing except run the computers. Why the @#$% can you somehow jumper that to the ~350v massive battery already in the car in the case of a problem....

The ole F-150 finally died this week. The transmission lost its overdrive in October. Cylinder 8 #$!&@ the bed a few days ago. Scored a used 2018 Nissan Frontier with 11k miles on it this morning. Hope it lasts 10 years like my Toyota's.
