People don’t like to read. In fact, you’re probably not even reading this right now. Instead, you’re watching the video below because for one thing, it doesn’t involve reading and secondly, people like watching animated videos. It’s a proven fact.

Who wants a car that’s “worthless?” Maybe you should. The key is, how many miles can you get out of it before a car or truck reaches that point? By that measure, Toyota makes the longest-lasting cars and trucks, at an average of more than 200,000 miles. [keep reading]
The 4WD vs AWD debate and RWD vs FWD debate has been going on for years and what’s best for you depends on your finances, where you live, your lifestyle and expectations. If what everyone else is doing matters, consider this, 30 percent of all vehicles on U.S. roads will have AWD by 2015.

We saw one of the first used Tesla Model S sedans go up for sale last week and it got us thinking, where can you buy, supercharge or service a Tesla these days? We scoured the internet and bribed our design team to put it all together in a sweet infographic – enjoy!

For example, you can check out a Tesla at Short Hills Mall in New Jersey, but you cannot take a test drive or discuss pricing with a salesperson. If you want to purchase a car, you would have to buy at TeslaMotors.com and then arrange a delivery. On March 15, 2014 Ohio passed a bill that will allow Tesla to sell its electric cars but it’s waiting to be signed into law by Governor Kasich. Read about it here.
