    My new Buick Insignia... euhhhh... Regal turbo

    I was looking in the Opel Insignia's brochure to see the differences and I was wondering what was that limiter button. I tried the active cruise control on a replacement car I had when the Focus was in the garage for a defect main fuse... it was a Dodge Durango Hemi. That feature is cool, as the...

    My new Buick Insignia... euhhhh... Regal turbo

    It is very similar to the Insignia. In the first production months (mid to late 2010), they imported the car from Germany. Since then it is made in Canada. So assembly is not as good as the German cars. I never drove an Insignia, so I cannot compare the two cars. I had my car 2 days ago and the...

    My new Buick Insignia... euhhhh... Regal turbo

    My 2015 Ford Focus EcoBoost was approaching the end of the warranty and the list of mechanical problem was bigger and bigger. In the last month, they changed the turbo and the head gasket... That would have cost me more than 7000 $ if I had to pay... so it was time to do something. I had 2...

    Ownership Verified: My new 2015 Ford Focus EcoBoost

    Before the roadtest, i was thinking that those 123 hp were not enough for a Focus. The 120 hp of the Fiesta were just enough. But the torque and the gearbox do some magic. I would say that the turbo and the gearbox gives the feeling of a 140 hp car.

    Ownership Verified: My new 2015 Ford Focus EcoBoost

    For me, they didn't have to put an automatic transmission... I don't like them. :P But I compared back to back 3 different packages. My previous Fiesta with a 120 hp 1,6 liter 5 speed manual, the Focus with the 123 hp EcoBoost 6 speed manual and the regular Focus with the 160 hp 2,0 liters...

    Ownership Verified: My new 2015 Ford Focus EcoBoost

    My dealer send me a letter where they say that they had great deals and thousands of $ of rebate... so I went there to see what they were offering. The result... 6000 $ off (more than 25 %) on a new 2015 Focus SE EcoBoost. It is in my driveway ! For the European people here, Ford introduced...

    What is the best car in the world?

    I always thought that the best cars are the small european luxury cars. So you chose between the BMW 3 series, Mercedes C-Klasse, the Audi A4, Volvo S/V60 and the new Jaguar XE. I pick an AWD wagon version... probably a V60 Polestar or V60 Cross Country T6.

    https://youtu.be/YiC8jSEALi8 Live on TV... after an accident in the opposite direction. The Toyota Echo is too slow and the Kia Forte is too fast. Both are probably looking the crash. Bang.
