Chevy hybrid, VW buyback, WAZE and WAPO carchat

Washington Post car chat Real Wheels

Is everyone getting ready for the Fourth of July? Want some ideas about some new foods and old foods with a new twist? Read about some of the new foods I’m packing in my car, for eating in the car or eating at a BBQ with friends.

I drove the Chevy Malibu hybrid this week. The starting MSRP is $27,770, the one I drove was $31,130. The EPA fuel estimate is 47city/46 highway/46 combined. I got 40 mpg for my driving.

You may have heard that Volkswagen settled quite a bit of the emission financial compensation for deceiving its customers and the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Volkswagen still has to settle with other agencies, states, and countries, but cutting a deal with CARB and California is a big step.

Let’s chat about cars.
