An electric VW Beetle and Microbus? Yes!!!
Sales of the VW Beetle have continued to decline, but that doesn't mean that VW is ready to say goodbye to the iconic Beetle. VW is reportedly mulling the idea of an all-electric Beetle, which could make it more appealing. Klaus Bischoff, head of VW design, recently told VW Vortex at the Detroit Auto ...

The days of models like the 3000GT, Eclipse and even the Lancer Evo are long gone! Sad face! Now Mitsubishi is ditching its past and trying to regain market share by focusing all of its energy on SUVs. Even the really old Lancer is about to go away this summer. So what does that mean for the fledgling ...

Back in 2008 when Hyundai revealed its new luxury, rear-wheel drive Genesis sedan, Hyundai grabbed the industry's attention. Could Hyundai, which for years had been known building budget-minded models, actually make a luxurious vehicle that could compete with the best from Germany and Japan?

ouch
Nissan has announced the pricing for the 2017 GT-R Nismo, which is priced at an astonishingly high $176585. If you've been keeping a record of the GT-R's pricing over the years, you will probably realize that the 2017 GT-R Nismo is now over $100k more expensive than the US-spec R35 GT-R that ...

When the all-new 2016 Honda Civic was unveiled last year, enthusiasts loved the fact that Honda finally added some "sport" back to the non-Si Civic models with the new turbocharged model. The turbo was great, but the bad part was that it was only available with a non-sporty CVT, but now for 2017 ...

I was super excited when I moved into this building. Living above a Whole Foods, the amenities, modern apartments, etc. Now 10 months later, I can't wait for my lease to end. Pros: - New Building - Whole Foods - 24hr doorman - Responsive maintenance team - Rooftop pool - Front desk staff Cons: - Why is the A/C unit so loud? You can't even watch TV without it being so disruptive. - The fire alarms. Yes I know that the building is still being built, but come on. Every week or so they go off, especially in the middle of the night. It's fine if you have to run tests during the day, but waking me up in the middle of the night for "false" alarms, is not ok. - Why is there no service elevator? Whenever someone moves in, there is only one elevator functioning in the lobby. - Airbnb is illegal in the building, yet management turns a blind eye to it. There are lots of random people walking around with access to the building, which does not make it feel safe. - Recent water damage: The fire alarm went off again on 9/1 and this time there was water damage. Instead of notifying the residents that there would be major construction, the management decided to just start the work and annoy the residents. Now they want to do work in our apartments, but expect us to live in them while the work is being completed, for a week. This construction involves new dry wall, fans and lots of plastic sheets everywhere. - Bad management: They don't respond to emails and they don't care about your concerns. As long as the rent is paid, they don't care... This building calls itself a luxury building and it is when you look at how much the apartments cost, but not when you think about the fact that you really can't enjoy it. Look elsewhere if you're looking for a new apartment. The amenities may draw you in, but you'll regret it once you actually move in.

Leased a new BMW 3-Series. Julie was amazing. We ironed out all of the details over the phone and when we arrived the car was already washed and ready to go. It was by far the easiest car buying experience ever. We'll definitely be back again.
