Good Morning Warren and friends,

This week I wrote about the Top Ten most dangerous foods to eat in the car.

Strategic Vision came out with the most loved vehicles in the Nation. They quizzed over 500,000 people and found that if you didn’t love your car you might as well hate it.

If you didn’t love your car and were only satisfied with it you wouldn’t recommend it.

I liken it to the old couple that walks hand in hand down the street and everyone says they want to be like them when they’re older versus the couple that everyone is wondering when they’re going to get divorced.

I drove the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder this week. $40k out the door, 25 mpg. And, no I still wasn’t kind to the pedal. It’s harder to drive a 3rd row SUV that fast or hard, though.

Nissan has a feature in its infotainment system that allows you to capture the song you like and every time it comes on you have the option of turning to that station.

One of the more humorous journalists that had the car before me must have thought they were funny when they set 20 buttons to different commercials. So, you have to either delete the listing or click no you don’t want to hear that commercial or the question stays up there for a good 30 seconds.

I still used my iPhone – Google Maps – for navigation.

There’ s going to be a brand new Jaguar SUV in town soon.

I’ll let you know as more details emerge about the Jaguar F-Pace crossover SUV.

Let’s chat about cars:
