Rivian R1T

Charles.D. | August 11, 2022

This makes my large Lexus GX460 look small, and my vehicle is not small. I think it’s a nice-looking truck, and to be an EV, times are changing. Pickup trucks are huge in the US, and Rivian put itself in a good position by releasing this before Tesla. I think […]

Zero Motorcycles

Charles.D. | November 5, 2021

So I love tech and especially the idea of electrified vehicles. I have an electric skateboard that I do not feel comfortable riding at my age, I have a Segway mini that isn’t safe to ride with the learning curve and the amount of power required to control it, and […]

Why Ford

Charles.D. | October 5, 2021

As usual, I was minding my own business and driving a 2014 Ford Escape Titanium 4WD, and look what happened. Not sure if this is a reliability issue but come on! Some folks rely on this when it comes to having an SUV. The camera would not engage.

My Mercedes-Benz GL450

Charles.D. | August 10, 2021

One day, I was driving around in New Jersey, minding my own business, trying to buy a used Toyota Hylander. I entered into a car dealership that, of course, posted some very deceiving prices online. When I went to take a look at my desired SUV, it did not drive […]

Error on 95

Charles.D. | July 14, 2021

This is the fate of the world when everything goes digital and relies on computers. Maybe if we set up neural networks with self-awareness, these issues can fix themselves and we would not have this kind of problem. Oh, wait! In all seriousness turn the sign off, don’t let this […]

Charles.D. | July 14, 2021

So I’m in Far Rockaway, Queens minding my business and I happened to stumble upon this mix-match of a Cadillac Escalade. I’m pretty sure this is not how it came from the factory. Props to anyone looking to spice up their old ride. I’m curious as to how much effort […]
