I'm In My Prime

I can't speak for other states, but I know most of the power companies including municipal ones burn natural gas to spin up their turbines or whatever it is they use to generate electricity.
It isn't ideal, I agree. However, there is still quite a difference between electric vehicles which rely on burning fossil fuel once to generate the electricity, and a V8 which burns highly volatile and toxic petrol that is made through an even more polluting refining process.Unless the energy is 100% renewable, you're doing very little.
Companies used to criticize that and then they realized Toyota was smart to do that. Which is why VAG cars share engines, including their higher end brands, along with general parts, platforms, chassis. Though these days, the more modern Lexi don't share much like they used to. Which also drives up repair costs. Ford, GM, Fiat Chrysler, Tata, et al. all share parts and engines. You'd be surprised how many cars use engines from other car companies. The car landscape isn't what you or I grew up with or knew up until the last 10 years. It's the wild wild west.Thats a nice looking Toyota....
Good on you for changing your ways. I'll still stick to my 600 HP V8 put together by someone named Hans, probably.It isn't ideal, I agree. However, there is still quite a difference between electric vehicles which rely on burning fossil fuel once to generate the electricity, and a V8 which burns highly volatile and toxic petrol that is made through an even more polluting refining process.
I work in the industry, my wife picked the color. I do the rest. I frequent automobile manufacturing facility's. Toyota is king no one is close. i wish everyone knew their business philosophy if so no one would ever buy anything different. they top every single reliability chart, treat their employees like gold, and stand behind everything they make.So she doesn't have time to shop? That's one busy woman!
Yes, they do. The Prius 4 door comes in AWD flavor. It'd make more sense to offer the Avalon with AWD. Though I'm not too fond of Toyota's AWD system, or their lack of wanting to offer up Android Auto and or Car Play until people became angry with them.I would proudly fly the Toyota badge on the grill of this car.... but they do not make an awd sedan under the name toyota
I can't dispute that. My wife still drives and loves her 1989 Tercel. The odometer has been around a few times and the only signs of wear are in the upholstery.Toyota is king no one is close.
So am I .....(well, not married, because I said no lol)My wife is a full-time wife and mother
Or... and I'm just throwing it out there - she doesn't have any interest in picking it out or he knows more about cars? I know if my other half offered to buy me a car (he won't because I can't drive and have no interest in learning) I'd respond with "you do it, I don't care so long as it goes from A to B and isn't pink or a hairdresser's car."So she doesn't have time to shop?
