2015 Volkswagen Passat Limited Edition replaces Wolfsburg, SE model03/06/2015
Volkswagen slipped a new Limited Edition trim into its Passat lineup, replacing both the Wolfsburg and base SE trims. It costs $1,555 more than the S model but gets $2,755 worth of additional equipment, according to VW.
The LE comes standard with 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, keyless entry with push-button start, a rearview camera, leatherette seats (heated in front), a power driver’s seat with power lumbar, touchscreen radio with Sirius, eight speakers, a leather-wrapped wheel and chrome window surrounds.
Like the trims it replaces, the Passat Limited Edition comes with a 1.8-liter turbocharged four making 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic sends power to the front wheels, and mileage is rated at 24 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.
The 2015 Passat Limited Edition starts at $24,815, including destination, and will arrive at dealerships soon.
EcoReco M3 E-Scooter review notes03/06/2016
What to do? One solution might be something like this that you simply fold up and take with you on the bus/train. This one is an electric-powered scooter with a claimed 20 miles of range and a claimed top speed of 20 mph. The one we tested here is called the EcoReco M3.

A more upscale model called the M5 adds rear suspension for a supposedly softer ride. We didn’t try that one. The steering ratio is exactly one to one, too, so high-speed stability takes a good dose of concentration. The handlebar-mounted hand brake seemed to work jus
2015 Lincoln Navigator L review notes03/05/2015
EDITOR WES RAYNAL: The 2015 Lincoln Navigator is the first major update to the model since 2007!
The biggest change is dumping the 5.4-liter V8 in favor of a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. A more Lincoln-esque front end is here as well. I like the ginormous interior, especially the big knobs for things like volume and climate. It beats the touchsense stuff required in some other luxury utes.
It drives mostly like the 6,300 pounder it is. There must be a ton of sound deadeners because this baby is quiet on the road. Steering is decent and the ride is smooth. Having a V6 in a truck this heavy might seem like not enough, but no worries: Plenty of power here; feels nice and torquey. The in-dash mpg meter said I averaged 11 mpg home and back to work, so wondering where the “eco” is…
Nevertheless, early indications are the changes seem to be working:
