Why can't the government just mandate the automaker runs a random sample of, say, 5-10 customer cars with tamper-proof Automatic devices (https://www.automatic.com/) that track fuel economy over a week or two of real-world testing? That would at least provide a range between best and worst case scenarios. » 2/24/15 2:40pm 2/24/15 2:40pm

I faced a similar decision and went for the Fiat 500 Abarth. I enjoy how it feels like we're in it together (there's winter up here in Canada) and how it doesn't feel all that well-made *to begin with*…both have given me naughty thoughts about 10 years of long-term Abarth-driving bliss. » 2/17/15 1:46pm 2/17/15 1:46pm
