Washington Post Real Wheels car chat December 4, 2015

Good Morning Warren and Friends,

What was the car you purchased and how much did you purchase it for? Truecar sent me a list of all manufacturers and the average price of the car. What did you pay for your car? with what everyone else paid for their car. (Yes, I realize it is an average of all vehicles in that group)

There’s lots of information, including average interest rates for new and used cars.

I drove the 2016 VW Jetta 1.4 turbo SE gasoline sedan this week. Out the door, it was $20,915! That’s amazing – with heated front seats too. EPA says it gets 28 city/39 highway.

What did you pay for your car? (D-CA) at the Los Angeles Auto Show (LAAS). Pavley authored the AB-32 and SB-32 bill that mandates Zero-Emission Vehicles in California. AB-32 expires soon and she is trying to get SB-32 through to mandate ZEV and near-ZEV (like plug-ins) be sold in California. It will be interesting to see if she can get it passed.

Let’s chat about cars
