Colorado Won’t Let You Run Your Car Unattended, Unless You’ve Got a Remote Start

00-remote-start

Living in New England, one of the greatest options you can possibly get for a new car is remote start (heated front-row seats and heated steering wheel tied at a very close second). If your car is covered in snow, hit the start button on your key fob from the comfort of your home or place of work, and the head from the car does half the work in terms of cleaning all the snow off your car.

Being the offspring of a Hollywood great has to be difficult. We don’t mean difficult in terms of going to the best schools or having all the latest swag. We mean such a parental dynamic means the kid doesn’t always end up as the most well-developed member of society. But it certainly has its perks. Continue Reading »

00-cadillac-elr

This week, General Motors announced that it will be pulling the plug on the Cadillac ELR. I was extremely excited about this car when it was first announced, and really enjoyed my limited time behind the wheel.

Oil prices are down, and unless you are a small-time oil driller, that’s good news. The last time that there was a historical downturn in fuel prices, hybrids and electric vehicles saw huge drop-offs in sales. Continue Reading »

When you think of New Jersey, garbage trucks, and stuff blowing up, you might think I’m doing a poor job summarizing “The Sopranos,” but in this case, all of those things refer to an actual scenario. That said, it does look like a scene from a movie. Continue Reading »

tesla-model-s-redesign-1

The news of Tesla’s more affordable Model 3 has been out for some time now. Unfortunately, all that talk hasn’t translated into a vehicle you can actually buy (yet).

HyperLoop_TestTrack2_QVCA_copyright_(c)_2015_omegabyte3d

Hyperloop might be the brain-child of Elon Musk, but the mad genius (and possible real-life Tony Stark) left the technology open for others to come in and help make it a reality. The vision of a high-speed transportation system for people and cargo is sure to shake things up, but first it has to get over hurdles that many other innovators have encountered. Continue Reading »

2013-volkswagen-passat-tdi-engine

When it comes to Volkswagen’s diesel cheating scandal–what has come to be known as #Dieselgate–there has been plenty of coverage of corporate moves and responses, but little is actually known about what the consumer can do.
