  • After a steep drop in sales at the beginning of 2019, Tesla was scrambling to raise cash, slashing costs and closing dealerships. It slowed spending on new models, and even analysts who had once been very bullish about the company’s prospects soured on it.

  • arley Sitner was in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn for a wedding in March, feeling as if he’d just been sprayed by a skunk. Sitner’s hometown, Seattle, where he owns a camper-van restoration, repair and rental business called Peace Vans, was the site of one of one of the first huge coronavirus outbreaks. “People were like, ‘Stay away,’” he recalled.

  • The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S plots our escape from New York, luring me to play hooky from coronavirus home-schooling. The latest, wide-hipped version of the classic sports car burbles happily in eighth gear.

  • Ford Motor Co. confirmed on Thursday that it plans to end production of the luxury Lincoln Continental sedan in the U.S. at the end of 2020. A 2021 model year vehicle will be offered to the China market before the sedan says goodbye forever.

  • The Prius, which means “to go before” in Latin, debuted in Tokyo during 1995, began production in 1997, and came to the U.S. for 2000. Much has occurred since.

  • There are ways to remove the locking nuts. Many professional technicians know how to do it. Of course, they will be damaged beyond repair so your friend will have to buy a new set of locking nuts that will include the proper key. The other option is to take his chances with standard lug nuts.

  • A sports car racer for decades, I’m an on-roader. But the 2020 Jeep Gladiator Mojave pickup could convert me.

  • If you haven’t figured out how to learn from your mistakes by the time you’re 94 years old, you’re probably doing something wrong. After missing the mark with its first subcompact SUV, Mercedes-Benz — founded in 1926, if you just got on the metaphor bus — learned its lesson and got just about everything right with its second try, the 2020 GLB250.

  • There is something about looking back that seems perfect right now, given the realities of the present time. And there’s no better wayback machine than the 2020 Dodge Charger Scat Pack Widebody.

  • The temperature under the hood will be it highest when you turn off the engine. It gradually cools down (called hot soak in the industry) and all you are doing is stretching out the hot soak period.

  • While it may be no surprise that people love their trucks, Ford Motor Company commissioned an online Great American Truck Survey of 2,000 owners to find out just how much people love their trucks.

  • Tinting your windows can decrease the sun's intensity and reduce heat build-up in warmer climates(e.g., the Mojave desert.)

  • Most of the attention on adopting electric vehicles is focused on passenger cars. California, for example, has set a goal to have at least 5 million zero-emission vehicles on the state’s highways by 2030.

  • The coronavirus and the related drop-off in travel have pummeled the rental car industry. That means car shoppers may find deals on used vehicles this summer as the rental companies trim their fleets — but not necessarily bargain-basement discounts.

  • Americans lease cars more than people in any other country. Perhaps it’s a fear of commitment, at least as it pertains to a vehicle.
