Printer review consumer reports
printer review consumer reports we take a look back at our favorite and least favorite cars of.
We also look, at an alternative to Volkswagen diesel next on talking cars. Hi there and welcome to talking cars with consumer reports on how much where, printer review consumer reports I’m give general and I’m pretty sure what’s on the. It’s time for us to, take a look back over the year. Can take a look at the test car that we have like the most and the ones I really, didn’t for about that much but you cannot talk about. Without, mentioning the biggest automotive story the year and that’s bolt wagon the. Company having admitted to cheating on emissions testing for their TDI diesel, printer review consumer reports now as we record this deep and volkswagen are figuring out what the fix.
Will be for this but we have another angle of the story don’t we make, absolutely so there’s a couple things do you really wanna buy a Volkswagen these. Days but also do you really wanna buy a diesel these days so the real question, with books like a now is what does this mean for Volkswagen but about diesel. Small displacement diesels and cars for fuel economy ok in terms of big trucks, yeah we’re gonna see big trucks having deals for quite a while. Big trucks it makes sense because you can use the torque it’s nice for telling, printer review consumer reports that they’re a great sense so in terms of diesels and small business and any. Most other car companies have gone to hybrids they’ve gone to see be, transmissions they’ve gone to direct injection small displacement herbs and. All these other technologies to try to get good fuel economy not diesel because, these are brings in a whole lot of things including it’s really hard to get.
Those missions as volkswagen has a crucial hardly showed that to all of us, so behind us is actually the most interesting case because we have the. Volkswagen two liter diesel piecing volkswagens own, printer review consumer reports liter turbo and we. Just finished testing this vehicle and it seems that the best reason not to buy, diesel Volkswagen just gave us and it’s this engine is powertrain so we really. Compare these two engines and the performance there’s really no reason to, buy diesel anymore it and you know what I mean think back in. When they came, out those diesels what it looks like a natural gas engine they add that to. Grief they had a very underrated, [IDEAPRO]Wireless Bluetooth Thermal Printer HB4 58mm mini Portable Rechargeable Printer Desktop Direct Thermal Label Printer[black] of engines and.
Liter five cylinder which was really rough and and Thursday, yeah they never had a competitive four-cylinder engine right i mean this. Generation the Jetta which came out in, it had it’s had more engines and. Spinal tap attend drummers i mean your head that, liter five cylinder they. Were still selling with the two liter four-cylinder that dated back to i think, printer review consumer reports almost the late nineties the. Becoming the base engine for the Jetta actually, finally gave the Jetta competitive gas engine in the base model right and in. Addition to what you just said no, caught off guard with Toyota’s hybrids and the preview so all we have this.
Diesel oil market as clean diesel and that you have to remember I mean what I, can tell you i mean to Giants won the World so it’s it’s a high-stakes game. Here so diesel so it made sense when you had that, printer review consumer reports liter engine it was a. Non-competitive compared to the best out there now it appears they have a very, competitive venue is. Turbo its fuel-efficient its refined its powerful, it’s quicker than the diesel it doesn’t quite the fuel economy the diesel did. You can help for the additional cost of diesel it’s basically parity in terms of, terms of emissions it actually put out less carbon dioxide than the diesel. Because you know he’s actually put out more carbon dioxide per gallon, printer review consumer reports it is no reason to buy the diesel anymore plus thousands cheaper right i.
Mean more levels I mean doesn’t have the diesel clatter, is better I mean usually talk about the talk of a diesel not so much here so. Effortless so so nice so pleasant and there is it completely undermines the, case for the diesel yeah we have not been really impressed about the.
Drivability this latest two liter TDI diesel typically diesels you know they, have great mid-range torque their wonderful for passing on the highway but. If you are around town and passing on the highways no great shakes so that, printer review consumer reports doesn’t follow the diesel stereotype. Now on the other hand you have small displacement gasoline turbocharged, engines in the past we’ve said well you know sometimes these things are angry. Find sometimes these things just happen to respond sometimes they don’t get, real-world fuel economy right but Volkswagen ordered off here that is a.
Pretty refined engine you put, adults in the car and it still goes it has nice. Mid-range torque it is more refined and its putting up the numbers we got, printer review consumer reports miles per gallon overall the. Liter gasoline engine compared to, with the. Diesel and that’s before the fix whatever that, deals going to be less. Likely he’s going to reduce that further yeah it’s very likely that it could, change acceleration could change change fuel economy I mean highways still goes. To the diesel, printer review consumer reports miles per gallon tank its.
Gonna complain about, miles per. Gallon, absolutely not and when you look at the cost of fuel deal being more it again. You’re a parent para ti mean, months regardless. Phenomenal that extra six miles per gallon it really doesn’t count for much, printer review consumer reports wright also like you said there’s the price difference when you they make. Comparing trim levels tricky with parity its, more for the DS right now. Used to be you could say hey TDI volkswagens have great resale well we, don’t know what’s gonna happen there but but but the other thing is we’ve done.
Calculations ourselves we’re saying well just diesel payoff you know again back, when you’re comparing that diesel to a. Liter for resale, printer review consumer reports now relations are out the window with one point forty and again. Resale value of diesels whatever is going to happen there exactly so what, you’ve had happened here is in gasoline engines have gotten more and more. Efficient as I mean this is not the only car is not the only car that size is, miles per gallon you can get that from. I mean we saw the same thing, happened before so so monsanto is holding a diesel they’re going to want. Sex they were showing at auto shows for years old, printer review consumer reports but again I think they they did so well for SKYACTIV technology getting.
Miles, per gallon of a mazda6 it made no sense the reason they were also trying to make. The emission standards without having a urea injection system and right without, having to a diesel emissions below it and couldn’t pull it off and volkswagen. Couldn’t it turned out well, yeah so I did it just shows that gasoline. Engines there still life in them they continue to improve absolutely I’m you, printer review consumer reports go back. Years I mean it was common to get near, miles per gallon or testing. Overall reports owner I mean now, or more in the thirties and in the midsize.
Sedan right so very impressive makes the case for diesel much so let’s review, shall we can party there’s been some we’ve tested some really nice cars. Over the last year, printer review consumer reports yes we have so what are some of your favorites get well for a change let me. Put my money where my mouth is so every time, you know there was an airport car or something that you need to be towards. The Q-three I really like that car and I found myself gravity towards the Ford, Edge and Q three it’s nice this side is very handy very very great seats great. Like the infotainment system I like the handling great seat qualify the, subcompact but it’s an entry-level. You know, printer review consumer reports satisfy me it’s quieter and a lot better than many luxury I really like it before.
The edge great handling a great ride very quiet feels very solid very, sophisticated great seats quite a transformation story yeah absolutely. Drives a truck so nice I mean it’s it’s basically a European luxury SUV and then, it does anything related to what it was before they really feel very developed. Cancer the previous edge I mean it always had a ton of power but it was, never handled that well the ride was ok nothing special but now it definitely. Feels like a class above any other cars that impression, printer review consumer reports yes I get one more and I’m. Just drive on it yesterday I mean a modest, pace cars so rewarding i mean it’s it’s kind of like a merging of in true. American muscle car with it, sophisticated European handling machine just can’t get enough of driving my car.
Right now we’ve talked about in the past how with performance and Angie typically, like cars in that class you like three series you like see BMW. Like mercedes-benz c-class size i think thats, printer review consumer reports lends itself more. Supported and that you can really have some fun on a track, with a rather you know it just delivers this incognito kind of thing is very. Stealthy so nobody knows it, really driving up but classic or you know your thoughts on ya my top three. The c, is right there to just an amazing car you know what’s really weird. To me i i love u so much with that the big displacement engine but it’s like, printer review consumer reports this is the first one where it’s like yet turbocharged yet downsize the bit.
But it sounds ridiculous it just sounds so good and you talk about that but it, doesn’t feel like you’re giving up anything even though you’re giving up. Its place the one thing we give up as we didn’t test it by that we’re not using, any donated money for tickets are reports that should have said that in. The video I totally regret it, no we didn’t we we was paid for the use of those vehicles but a rental car. Rental car what else would you like from the last year the other cars they’re, printer review consumer reports like well one bigger one and one small and one the p. Days you know the Tesla, Model S apt 5d was still pretty amazing when you get into it you know that I’m. Eating coloration the quietness the room I mean I would probably driving home a, lot more than so many new cars that we need to get into and a charging station.
In my home would certainly help it is a man wasn’t taking it home all the time, that you were looking and then the other car that I continue to love is the Mazda. Miata I mean look at it we tested motorcycles away while back I mean the, printer review consumer reports one I like the best driven motorcycles I was kind of a late comer amor cycles I. Love the ninja to yeah because it’s like one of those things where you can just, like crazy and not get into trouble you’re not going to get into too much. Trouble and that’s what the Miatas and we got it continues to be the extension, your fingertips you know it’s like you just everything is a natural the. Shifters just precise and you can just play with the car and not yet again you, could take. I mean if I’d, printer review consumer reports car I would be in jail I mean I don’t understand how you can control yourself.
With this ridiculous amount of powered foreman’s the Miata just playful and, just enjoy you have liked to me out a to its like takes its intention of yourself. And you feel like this one car with the road means things are so predictable and, yet playful but it’s it’s very limited in what it always has a. Day but my, community every day probably not be in jail but traction as as you know I’ve. Said many times he’s my favorite car all-time in this one doesn’t do anything, printer review consumer reports to break that streak I really like I really like this this generation I. Didn’t screw it up which was a big risk i mean the smaller the cars later as, less power but it’s as quickly gets to regular get to going back to work on its. Amazing sports car looks great to look street again I hate to say it though but, I mean I wind up with the same issue that talked about in the earlier pockets.
We did it when you can go and buy, a. To grant, printer review consumer reports $. Right the price and like I said because these, cars are used as daily drivers there’s plenty of them out there with., model lot of life left a reliable very reliable just hold that against the card. Also on my list it’s been a good year for SUVs but it seems like every year to, year for just what people by the Kia Sorento every time I get in their car. This is what I over a.
m. Or a Honda pilots just feels upscale it’s really, printer review consumer reports nice to drive its a very handy size 78 scale I don’t need a third row seat the. Second receives plenty room at all very nice car I mean there are you can argue, that doesn’t have the reputation of Honda December reputation of Toyota but. Reputation of Honda’s bit rocky right now and you know it’s constantly getting, better it’s one of the more reliable as you can buy a car that probably won’t be. One of the more reliable SUVs you can buy but still impressed me a lot is the, Volvo xc. Volvo I’m a big fan over the years I’ve known to them and there was a, printer review consumer reports period of time where it was just marking time this car just totally clean sheet.
Totally so appealing I mean it never sits in our parking lot that thing is, always out on the road now it’s a 425 $. Less and that’s really, impressive I mean it looks good. Both inside and out and have to admit, more I Drive it the less I like it and that’s mostly due to the ride which is. Way too stiff for $, printer review consumer reports car and the infotainment system looks great and very. Slick looking within just look at look like an iPad but working in a while, you’re driving is a nightmare. Yeah there’s a lot going on there is a credible show repeal reliability data on, it how it’s going to be a hold-up yeah I say that it probably won’t be reliable.
Because it’s everything everything as a news when you do that, sure but i i agree that’s very impressive when you get into it like wow. They’re taken seriously now you know I’m going to cheat and I’m gonna fourth car, printer review consumer reports bomb sent to the bone. Because I hostess so I’m going to hurt your run of the game so you could do it, right that’s fine. Exactly motorcycles are really cool the car that I would always gravitate, towards when I needed a car to take to the airport. You know something I was going to spend a couple of days with an I needed a car, that wasn’t in the current esteli. Mercedes-benz c, printer review consumer reports that car just I’d rather have a three Series BMW.
In a very seldom thought that I would want a mercedes-benz over BMW for it I, thank you very much in the holiday season thank you for your generosity now. You know it was always BMW was the more sporting car mercedes-benz was quiet and, softened know this this the c-class has better steering than the. They’ve updated the three series from, it’s a really nice car reliability. Than three series lead over broken down later agreed it’s not that reliable they, printer review consumer reports have to work on that they really do need to improve reliability speaking of bad. Things about cars what are some of the cars from last year you, really didn’t like know so you know the first inning for the Acura ILX was great. Fanfare around that and, that just took him in your car and made it really much more annoying or the ride.
This infotainment system is so frustrating, cars are not easy and so low and the other hand it’s just up of charging you. Know $, printer review consumer reports for this car and trying to cheat people to think that this is an. Entry-level luxury and it’s not the problem that problem at that car poses, is that it’s hanging around the office here we also have a. Focus titanium, was $. That focuses more of a luxury car over the white yeah yeah, absolutely i mean just a cut to the chase ilex was on my list to we didn’t. Talk about the beforehand I mean it’s just it was just you know not giving, printer review consumer reports buyers and you know it’s like its contempt for the bus will put a luxury.
Badge on it and you know she led mercedes-benz CLA is the kind of seen it, you know it’s like you know what looks nice but there’s no substance to it and. Yes you look at the focus has substance you look at you know other cars that, really do feel substantial just putting a luxury badge on it is on a mediocre. Cars not in your fridge with a focus for a sec I mean look at the Civic right i, mean this in a redesign is you know probably quieter car collection now is. On the last generation Civic chassis which was not any great shakes oh yeah, printer review consumer reports you know what else is on your slow. Outlander freshening was supposed to really fix all the elements of the, original car I mean it’s a quick freshening nearly two years after they. Launched the car and almost like it had to do with the Civic yeah and so the the, fix the right a little bit and get some noise isolation but cars so clumsy it’s.
The handling is just so Rollie pollie the seats are uncomfortable so updated I, mean there are things there like to when was last time you had to take your hands. Off the wheel to do something with the on-board computer to computer there are, printer review consumer reports so many things that are just so annoying or so that’s that’s almost i mean you. Can see the appeal of it we haven’t made tape played to be club for a while here, so I’m gonna bite on this I don’t love the Mitsubishi Outlander but you know. Take your hands off the wheel to get the trip computer is kinda first world, problems and it here’s the thing about the eyeliner and an example but the. Other is not a great job keeping that but it does give you a lot for the money, I mean it’s not what it was like. So it’s basically, printer review consumer reports so I mean it’s the price of a raft wars here it got has three rows of seats it.
Will likely be very reliable so I mean for someone who doesn’t those dealers, are going to give you $. Off and they’re going to give you low-interest, financing because that’s right. Yes I mean for the price and what it offers IAC its its purpose I’m getting, lost and it is my turn yet but in terms of but in terms of my bad cars you go. Back to you but I would have another Ivan SUV that I don’t I don’t like it, printer review consumer reports it’s it’s not that one its the Land Rover Discovery support and I was almost. On my list but that I tell me why I’m wrong but that car is something that, sells for a higher price and it was just copy what you said about the ILX right i. Mean it’s a luxury vehicle contempt it is and again going back to your Ford, Edge before.
Just so much more of a vehicle then that person I mean it’s so, it looks kinda cool but just the way it drives is just driving across Iceland. Like they did I say you got a point there but I and the discovery and others, printer review consumer reports liked the mercedes-benz CLS it it’s just like that and it’s it’s just too bad. That you know when you see mainstream players building these terrific cars, like like why why is that I have land rumor has for years had pretty mediocre. The whole lineup spent pretty mediocre products I mean a Range Rover Sport now, he’s a really nice car rendering now is it is they have the capability to build. Some right exactly do you have a third yes and no, usually I kinda like most Italian things and Fiat. X not what I mean you look, printer review consumer reports at this car and he just wanted love it you know and and are some some nice.
Details about it but it’s so frustrating I mean the ride is harsh the idle, vibration the plague left my speed automatic and it’s not a happy car no I. Don’t understand why here in America I just don’t i mean obviously because they, go on chrysler now to incorporate pride and leveraging international investments. And makes sense but the, X is not going to win the World. Alt is, printer review consumer reports loathsome. Stands for limits could be worth a lot of money so you’ve already had the ILX, already the end sport what your third as much of that when I debate these things. We did not plan and no we didn’t and you know and it’s really sad I really hope, he gets going back to America and everyone’s like vehicles that was the.
Eighties reliability and I said maybe we should give them a chance will mean they, have a chance and we have a liability did it and they’re the worst they are. The worst of any vehicle you get on an american market right now and that’s, printer review consumer reports just so so sad when you leave a market with a reputation for reliable vehicles. And then come back years later, like how are you can exist and now they’re making a specialty tapes. Vehicles and it’s just like it doesn’t make a lot of the, spider winds up. Being like a sterling taking he completely reliable that the reach back, i mean you get work hard to make an unreliable but but will so we have they. Are putting a field engineer at, printer review consumer reports speed auto in there.
We didn’t plan advanced by also had 500 X on my list I was a little more I was a, little more gentle with my after he treated in which I had every city and. Built by Acura ILX is really not great we’ve we’ve tried out recently updated, accord EXL b6 I would much rather take that accord any day of the week over the. TLX felix has been really unreliable because of both the night speed, transmission I mean that’s what you bought a Japanese accurate and you. Didn’t buy the Mercedes right that so if I do go I’m actually surprised it’s, printer review consumer reports kinda surprised my third car that I really didn’t like the Nissan Maxima my. Parents had a maximum from one of the, four-door sports car. Yeah what they’ve done to the name yeah it’s just become this concept car style, Logan to death you know it completely meaningless it’s just that it’s not.
Sporty, you know there’s some nice touches in the interior department you drive it so. That’s going to wrap it up for this year we wish you a Happy New Year as always, printer review consumer reports we thank you for watching talking with consumer reports
