      Right. It says as much - "Note: This vehicle is NOT for sale as it has been restored for display purposes only."

      Why the price? Might be satirical but I'm not sure. Might be a reading...

      What I've read is that a team can use a device to boost the signal from the fob, if it can be picked up near the house, and relay that to another device near the car that imitates the key. This...

      Yep. When we were thinking of a new car, before we had decided on a PHEV, I looked into the Lexus. Made my eyes bleed so I didn't look again. With so much going for them I'm just surprised they...

      Beyond cost, there's availability for the bigger batteries. If they want to keep sales volumes up I don't think they can rely on plug-in cars until the whole battery supply chain is much better.

      Interesting analogy, but not quite. The infrastructure has changed out from under the older phones, something that isn't likely to happen with the cars in 10 years. For cars the infrastructure will...

      It does look like Volvo Trucks are suspending production in Gothenburg. I wonder if that's what the OP saw?

      I didn't know they did that rack for Thule, though I did see the similarities.

      The final straw that saw us get the air suspension for the XC60 was the ability to get the roof just a little lower...

      I'd suggest that it depends in part on what type of bikes you're carrying. We've got an ATOC Tandem Topper for our long bike and it, or something like it, is probably also the best solution for a...
