Stretch helped me out this week and went to Las Vegas to drive the 2017 Hyundai Elantra Sport with a starting price of $21,650 or the Elantra Sport automated shifting with a 7-speed DCT and paddle shifters for $22,750. Stretch got around 28 miles per gallon.
How many of you are worried about car hacking/cybersecurity? NHTSA has come out with a layered proposal on cybersecurity. I talked to Ian at Magna about cybersecurity, and he told me what they are doing to counter-attack the hackers.
I drove the 2017 Nissan Titan V-8 Platinum Reserve 4WD crew cab this week. The starting price was $55,440, out the door was $55,595. The vehicle was impressive, but when I realized everything on the truck was standard – not one option – I was more impressed.
Chevy showed off the tricked out Hurley, Kia and Hyundai showed off their autonomous and pimped up machines, but Stretch’s favorite was the Indian motorcycle.
I love you guys when you want something. For the past year, since his buddy Sam has gotten a BMW motorcycle, Stretch has been showing me motorcycles, “I’m not going to get this, but I just wanted to show it to you.” Because I have so much interest in motorcycles? No, because he’s priming me. His fixation right now is a BMW R nineT.
