That's not a particularly extravagant budget. The average new car is about 40k these days
What if someone is more annoyed that low mpg and a small tank mean you're all of a sudden best buds with the guy who works at the gas station
And upwards of 34 people were disappointed
Lol. Nobody buys manuals anymore. I've driven manual all my life but autos are faster and more efficient than manuals now.
Manual customers have to be enthusiasts, but how many enthusiasts want the slow version?
My next car will be auto, maybe...
It's not mainly diameter that causes the mpg dip
It's the 255, 265, 285 mm wide instead of 315 wide
Wider tire is harder to roll and harder to push through the air.
30-60 mm of extra width per tire is enough to reduce efficiency
Think of how a road racing bike has skinny tires and a mountain...
The minivan is actually cool now, because soccer mom's are all driving explorers, pilots, X5, highlanders and the like.
Power sliding doors are so cool, opening the door as you walk to the car is cool as hell for the passengers

I like the chrome door handles. EDIT... they white
I thought OBX was supposed to have painted handles, but I probably stared too long at that tiny spec sheet
Also, should be inside the garage not in front of it
Those are the exact trips that eco mode has zero effect on
Eco mode will not give better steady state freeway mileage
It costs a certain amount of gas to cruise at 75 mph.... Pushing a button can't change that
You got it exactly
Eco just gives changes the throttle curve, so if you ask for 30% it gives you 20%..... But if you need to get up to speed you will just push the throttle further and basically negate what eco mode does
Eco mode does nothing to boost steady state efficiency
Do you guys...
