  1. True-given what I do for driving, it would work for me 90% of the time.
  2. But at the same time how many times do you drive that much in a single drive? I get some people will, but for the vast majority of people its going to work and running errands
  3. Not really....consider the fact that you can recharge your car every night at home...
  4. Yeah I the only thing I can think of is that Job 2 Broncos are changed some how outside of losing Navigation and the digital displays on the HVAC controls that they aren't as affected by chips?
  5. Freaking finally....though I wonder why its taking almost four weeks to get it vs 10 days almost 2 weeks the last time.
  6. Doh! I got my Bronco build notification this morning when I saw this article....and it was way too early in the AM before coffee too Fixed

  8. Apparently there is some sort of Ford wide issue with chips-people who had Broncos built in January that are on chip hold just got notification that their shipping dates got pushed back another 60 days-so they are looking at July/August delivery date worst case. As for shipping-it might be a rail issue. My Bronco was built earlier this week and I got a shipping estimate of 6/13-19, when my first one only took two weeks to get to me the last time after the MIC top.
  9. dealerships have the right to mark up vehicles that are dealer stock…it might not be popular, but it is their right to do so. The thing people get pissed about is when they do it to a retail ordered that is basically a “done deal” outside of driving it off the lot.
  10. I was messing with the configurations of the Vette-they start at 60k and a well equipped one is about $20k more. I think Ford is making more selling a F-150 limited at $76k vs selling a 30k XL
  11. I browsed through that and it looks like its not taking development costs into consideration and is assuming a BEV CUV would lead to huge sales increases? The Vette starts at 60K and goes for 80-90K depending on how its equipped. Lets say the costs to just build the Vette around 20-40K in parts then figure in whatever engineering costs etc that need to be factored into that...still not sure how it can make a 16.5% margin

    VW to use Scout name as electric pickup

    I know about the Cherokee, but also remember it wasn’t marketed for that and part of the reason it was popular was because it was cheap. the Scout is going to have a lot of people shitting on it because it’s a VW and BEV. plus don’t forget this was a thing too
  13. You might not want to be a douchebag either to a moderator
  14. Its on the assembly line as we speak. It was started Friday. Going back to this whole thing about them sitting around for a few months or whatever...I count myself as someone is "picky" but I'm also a realist too...I know for a fact that cars that driven every day can go months without being washed by their owners (mostly because its winter time) and if was that big of a concern, more people would be refusing delivery of these vehicles. It boils down to the old saying "picking the pepper out of fly shit"-is it really worth doing or worrying about? The internet makes it really easy to bitch about something (without doing anything about it)
