Good Morning Warren and friends,

A federal judge has set March 24th as the deadline for Volkswagen to come up with a fix for 600,000 diesel models violating emissions standards.

We have a lot of really smart people that chat with us. Do any of you try to figure out how this emission issue could be solved? I do. I haven’t come up with anything, but I wonder what it will take.

Would you buy a car with a diesel engine? Why? Why not?

This week I drove the 2016 Infiniti Q70L V-8. Most long-wheel bases are built for the Chinese market and sold in the United States. It’s not only a status thing in China, but the wealthy are also driven in China and want more legroom and plushness in the back. 416 horsepower, 414 lb-ft of torque, four modes of driving pleasure to choose from, cooled-heated seats, lots of flowing leather and wood grains. Q70L EPA mpg is 16 city/23 highway and starts at $67,050, mine out the door was $76,770 The competitors would be the BMW 7-series and the Jaguar XJ. I would also look at the Hyundai Genesis, Kia K900 and the Lincoln MKC.

Let’s chat about cars!
