A new owner of a Buick Envision asks about some details with blind spot management, lane keeping assist, and other things. I do my best to answer, largely from memory, referencing my review of the Envision earlier this year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ka4nB4lfLY
A fan asked me a question about recent statements made by Ford’s COO regarding autonomous vehicles. Ford says that autonomous vehicles will likely only have a four-year lifespan. Why would they say that?! I got answers.
In this Q&A session, I’m asked about Tesla’s open patents and why other automotive companies haven’t taken Musk & Co up on the deal. For background, Tesla announced a few years ago that the company was going to “open source” its patents and allow other automakers to use them “in good faith.” There’s a catch. A big one. That’s why no one has jumped on board. http://www.AaronOnAutos.com
In this interior review, I get into the Lexus UX in its hybrid model, the 250h. This is a great looking crossover with a smart interior. There are some things that could be fixed, but the signature Lexus interior goodness comes through.
In this Q&A, I answer a question about the Coda electric car and where it went. I get the dates wrong (fixed), but the rest #seemslegit. The Coda Electric story is interesting, not the least for the things it teaches about how fickle automotive can be.
In this interior shaky cam review, I get into the 2019 Nissan Altima and have a look around this all-new sedan after spending a week getting to know it. Turns out, there were still things I missed. Like how to change drive mode to Sport mode. Kind of important! Here’s the ins and outs of the all-new Altima.
If you’re in need of a new car for your small family (2 adults, 2 kids), then this list is for you. These are my picks for “Best Of” in the small family category of crossover-SUVs. If you need a good vehicle for everyday that balances price, efficiency, and spaciousness, this list should get you started in your shopping process.
I don’t rank vehicles in a “top 5” or “best to worst” because everyone has different styles, wants, and needs. Instead, view these as a shopping list you can start from. I’ll do more videos aimed towards other demographics soon.
The lists and my commentary organize these vehicles by manufacturer in alphabetical order.
Below are links to reviews I’ve written for each of the vehicles detailed in this video.
