    Tesla motor

    The electric motors used by Tesla ARE NOT made by Daimler AG. They are made in-house by Tesla, as has been highlighted by at least two television programs. One was National Geographic's "Megafactories" documentary series, and the other was the Canadian produced "How It's Made: Dream Cars"...

    New Experience - Crown Vic - Breaks Itself!

    Glad to hear that you're okay. Poor Camry, a car always seems to resent having been relegated to the body shop. As to the Crown Vic, you can hardly describe the fact that you powered the seat forward into the cup-holder until it broke as "auto-destruct". I'd say the Crown Vic didn't exactly...
