Good Morning Warren and friends,
So, what did everyone think of the GOP debate? What was your favorite line from the evening?
You know what I realized? I realized I missed Tim Russert. I missed the days when we sat down to hear what the candidates had to say to make a decision, not to see if they would make a mistake. Our question-and-answer sessions are more like people going to NASCAR to see if an accident happens than to see the race. It’s taking on the qualities of a sitcom.
This week I drove a Jeep Renegade and a Kia Sorento.
The 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk was a burnt orange and everywhere I went people looked. The MSRP as tested was $30,245 and I got mid-20s on the fuel economy.
The Kia Sorento was around $30,000 and had all the bells and whistles (not a 4X4) with beautiful tailoring on the interior. I got about the same mpg as the Renegade but loved the drivability so much more.
I think part of the difference was the 9-speed automatic on the Renegade. I asked the President of ZF, the transmission manufacturer, at what point – how many speeds can you have before a transmission is a CVT. I think it is 8, nine is too many.
