However the 7-8 passenger Japanese Odyssey, like the Toyotas, is slightly smaller than the version produced for full-size Americans. Whether a full-size variant would be produced for the U.S. is anyone’s guess, although one major magazine has guessed it would.
The car is still an ongoing project. Being a student, it is very challenging for me to fund the hobby. Therefore, it takes time for me to upgrade and sort out problems that may arise. I believe the next best product that is not a mainstream name in Bangladesh might work just as well, if not better within the same price. Still, being a car enthusiast, I spend every last penny in pursuit of making things a little bit better. I believe that our cars are a reflection of our personalities, therefore I try to not make any compromises with my car.
There is no need to buy a Subaru if it is not turbocharged. If you want a naturally aspirated Subaru, you might as well buy any of its limp-wristed brown-rice rivals since they each have specific and singular talents that outshine the Forester’s, and I do mean specific. Nobody said those cars are better overall (but I haven’t said they aren’t either): they are good at one thing each, which is why they draw their own fan-dom and consumer base, but the Fozzie provides a kind of anorak’s balance, an all-round jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none persona that makes it hugely satisfying to the discerning user. These words are high praise coming from me. But the fun of having a Subaru is in exercising the turbos. I repeat: if you are not buying a turbo Subie, then don’t even bother, you are missing out on the essence that makes them so endearing to the hearts of their owners that they went as far as threatening me with death for saying a 21-year old Evo is a superior driver’s car in comparison. Yes, turbocharged Subies are that good; they evoke strong emotions in their users.
Through September 30th, San Diego Gas & Electric will offer its utility customers $10,000 toward a BMW i3 or Nissan Leaf. That’s in addition to the state of California’s offer of up to $2,500 in rebates on plug-ins, as well as the $7,500 federal tax credit. Depending on models, SDG&E customers could get up to $20,000 in credits and rebates. That’s a huge amount of incentives, especially on a Nissan Leaf that starts at $31,565. The utility company also offers an annual bill credit of up to $200 for driving an electric vehicle.
Avensis has four conventional side doors, a high-lift tailgate and three rows of seats in a two / three / two configuration. All seven seats can cope with adults, though the second-row centre seat is probably best left to a child. Access to the third-row seats isn’t too difficult, though they are better left to those who are still on the young and supple side.
