Tech features have made trailering a breeze, even if you're a noob
Does it make a difference?
On this week's Autoblog Podcast, Editor-in-Chief Greg Migliore is joined by Green Editor John Beltz Snyder and Consumer Editor Jeremy Korzeniewski. We talk about the possible rebirth of the Dodge Viper and Jaguar XK, as well as the recent goings-on at Tesla. Then we share some of our experiences driving in Europe. We also discuss the cars we've been driving, and help spend another listener's hard-earned dough in this week's "Spend My Money" segment.
Everyone, please, secure your loads — this his second close call.
One of the biggest changes to the 2018 Ford Mustang was the addition of a 10-speed automatic transmission that we've seen in different forms in both Fords and Chevys. And because of its newness, and the fact that nearly half of you readers wanted to know more about it, we ordered up our long-term Mustang with the 10-speed to see what it's like on a daily basis. We also, as luck would have it, got a six-speed manual Mustang at the same time, so we decided to take a close look at them back-to-back
With the manual transmission becoming less common as time goes on, there are fewer opportunities to learn how to use it and subsequently order a car with one. In response to this, Honda hosted an experience in the Los Angeles area near Angeles Crest Highway called "Shifting Gears." There Honda brought out a bunch of its own manual-equipped cars to teach people how to use a manual transmission.
Tesla said on Friday that a Tesla Model X involved a fatal crash in California last week had activated its Autopilot system, raising new questions about the semi-autonomous system that handles some driving tasks. Tesla also said vehicle logs from the accident showed no action had been taken by the driver soon before the crash and that he had received earlier warnings to put his hands on the wheel.
We've all seen examples of drivers who don't square their turns, instead making left turns that are too tight and cut well into the oncoming driving lanes, making you glad there's nobody approaching to make their own left turns.
