Yes--suspension and brakes are amazing today compared to the 70s, and it's very easy to forget that until you drive an old car. I loved the original Charger, and their remake looks great, though I...

Tesla owns the Tesla charging stations. There are several third parties that own chargers for non-Teslas.

I bought my car 5.5 years ago when they were still including free charging for life, so I...

I haven't driven any car that far since 1985, so I'm not sure that's meaningful.

I guess I should have added "to a comparable gas vehicle.." 4Runner is a great vehicle, and I don't think there is a an EV equivalent yet. Someday, when you try one, I think you'll like it.

Hybrids are a a great way to dip a toe in the water of EVs. My wife bought one a few years ago; she'll go full electric next time. Another thing to consider is that if you're a two car family and...

Once you've tried electric, you really can't go back to slower, rougher, noisier.

Very interesting. I don't say this often, but a very good time to be armed! (haha) A friend of mine is a bow and arrow hunter for deer, but always brings a handgun in case of bear.
