I don't believe I saw...

I want to also mention another interesting comparison that Fifth Gear
performed. they took a vehicle (a diesel powered one) with Stop/Start
built-in. They drained the entire fuel system, filled it with 1 litre
of diesel, and then drove around London with the start/stop system
disabled. Then, they did the same test but with the start/stop feature
active to see how much further they could get on the same amount of fuel.

In their trial, they got about 10% further with start/stop active.

There are a few vehicles over here now that have start/stop ... not
just hybrids.

Four words that never should be put together but actually were: Aztek
Rally Sport Edition.

HAHAHAHAHA!

This morning, I saw someone driving a Dodge Omni.

Heavens. I worked at a Chrysler dealership when those were around.

A really well maintained Mitsu 3000GT VR-4. Talk about a blast from
the past.

I keep seeing a white Tesla Model S around town, too. Not sure if I
keep seeing the same one or if more than one person owns one in the area.

Got passed yesterday morning by a Fiat 500L. Almost mistook it for a
Mini CountryMan. Surprised at how big the 500L is compared to the
regular 500s I've seen around town.

It's a mini-SUV, basically.
I'm driving one from Toronto to Detroit in January. Not much room in
the driver's foot well ... should be interesting.

Heh. Will be looking forward to your review of that.

{Wheels.9.606}: Jil {rabbit} Thu, 28 Nov 2013 13:48:32 EST (2 lines)

I've only driven it for a short period, so the longer-term drive will
probably have me loving or hating it.

I had a WTF moment last night. I saw my first Nissan Murano
cabriolet/convertible. The Murano softop comes third in my ugly
vehicle list behind the BMW 6-series GT and the Honda CrossTour.

Whose bright idea was that?!?

{Wheels.9.608}: Jil {rabbit} Sat, 05 Jul 2014 07:36:28 EDT (1 line)

I actually liked it, believe it or not. They didn't make many of them.

--------

{Wheels.9.609}: Joseph Kang {jsk} Sun, 06 Jul 2014 14:17:43 EDT (2 lines)

I'm not surprised they didn't make many. What model year(s) were they
available?

{Wheels.9.610}: Jil {rabbit} Sun, 06 Jul 2014 15:06:52 EDT (2 lines)

Looks like they still are.

Gah! My eyes! :-P

Nope.

Last night I saw what was probably only the 2nd Fisker Karma that I've
seen on the roads here. I'm sure it wasn't the same one that I'd seen
previously because that one was a different color.

{Wheels.9.614}: Jil {rabbit} Tue, 29 Jul 2014 14:31:24 EDT (1 line)

Ugly things, they were.

I never got the Lotus thing. I've heard they're the best cars in the
world to drive, but man, they're hideous.

Never thought I'd see one in person, but there's a Maclaren MP4-12C in
the parking lot of my office building this morning. Belongs to someone
in the office next door to us. Winter must truly be over if the owner
brought it out of storage. :-D

--------

{Wheels.9.618}: Doug White {dwhite} Fri, 13 Mar 2015 09:45:33 EDT (2 lines)

You need a raise, Joe, if anyone in the next office is driving a Maclaren
and you're rockin' a Nissan!  WTH?

The next office space belongs to a large pharma. It's a satellite
space of their bigger facility down the street. Not surprised someone
over there can afford it.

Man, the pops and crackles it made as it left the lot were music to my
ears!

--------

{Wheels.9.620}: Doug White {dwhite} Sat, 14 Mar 2015 10:10:44 EDT (2 lines)

Probably not a lot of car seats and empty juice boxes in that car, either,
if you know what I mean.

--------

{Wheels.9.621}: Joseph Kang {jsk} Sat, 14 Mar 2015 10:31:45 EDT (1 line)

Definitely not! Kinda like my car. :-)
