2015 Volkswagen Passat Limited Edition replaces Wolfsburg, SE model

03/06/2015

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.

While a gasoline-fueled car can only move you 5-6 miles on $1 of gasoline, you can travel more than 500 miles with that same dollar on an EcoReco scooter.

EcoReco M3 E-Scooter review notes

03/06/2016

WEST COAST EDITOR MARK VAUGHN: One problem urban transportation engineers are always trying to address is what they call “The Final Mile.” No, that’s not what you cross at the end of your long and storied life; it refers to the distance getting from your home to the bus or train station. It’s the reason many people don’t take public transportation, because they don’t want to walk, take a cab or have to get picked up for a ride on that last mile. Or the first mile, the one in the morning. A bicycle would work in many cases, or a Vespa-type gasoline-engined two-wheeler, but then you’re always worried about it getting stolen or vandalized while it’s parked at your local train station. And you still have to cover the final mile when you get off the train and go to work. So you’d need two bicycles/Vespas, one at each end of your commute.

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. It has suspension in front and a driven rear wheel that’ll whisk you through city streets and over sidewalks with ease. OK, maybe not ease. Even with front suspension the M3 thwacks over sidewalk cracks with a kersmack that’ll lighten up your tib/fib and make you start doing one of those little gyro jumps to avoid it. 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

Control Trac four-wheel-drive system enhances traction on slippery surfaces, helps improve handling on dry roads and enables off-road capability.

2015 Lincoln Navigator L review notes

03/05/2015

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: Lincoln sold 916 in January compared to only 375 in January 2014. Mercedes-Benz moved 2,121 GL-classes, Cadillac 1,100 Escalades, and Infiniti 1,248 QX80s in case you wondered.
