Emily Litilla just logged on and complained that destination charging is just another profit center for the manufacturers, along with ad fees and doc fees.
Tesla needs gated parking slots that only open when you press a button on your EV dash.
Something else to break though. Never mind.
Don't put hot grits in a jar and shake 'em to distribute the butter.
Luckily it was a plastic jar....
I was better after I realized from reading @corvette's response that it was 24,000 we were talking about, not 24 miles.
I'm at a total loss.
A Chronic Car Buying story we can all relate to. I have a friend whose stable includes a Tesla Model S P85D, a 2016 Escalade, & a B7 L X-Drive Alpina, & 2 Harleys. Both he and his wife just can't stand the Alpina. They've only driven it 24K miles in the 30 months they've had it. The lease is for 39 months. He's at the BMW dealer right now trying to see if they'll eat his remaining 9 lease payments ($1600 each) if he drives off their lot in a 2016 X5 ///M. Stay tuned folks to see how the story unfolds.wow
Where are those studies that link increased speed to increased fatality rates? I'd like to see even just one."During 1993-2013, a 5 mph increase in the maximum state speed limit was associated with an 8 percent increase in fatality rates on interstates and freeways and a 4 percent increase on other roads." (IIHS)
I'll leave it to you to skim the footnotes.
Sorry, no time to read, busy setting up a "What would it take for YOU to speed in a diesel SUV wearing your Tag Heuer?" discussion....
