2010 Honda Accord Crosstour Review
MPGomatic.com puts a 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour 4WD EX-L Nav to a
week-long test drive, rolling up over 400 miles. [ Full Review:
The 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour delivers a sleek, unique, well-mannered and
comfortable alternative to conventional SUVs and more pedestrian
Crossovers. The Crosstour's aerodynamic design and i-VTEC V6 with Variable
Cylinder Management allow light-footed drivers to crush the official
highway mileage estimates. With a plenty of storage space and a
comprehensive electronics package the Crosstour is a solid choice to
replace a larger and less thrifty crossover or SUV.
JVC KW-V20BT Review: Slambo Gets Bluetooth/USB/Pandora/Nav - Ain't Fuelin'
Slambo's audio system gets an upgrade with a JVC KW-V20BT double din LCD
head unit. This DVD receiver includes hands-free Bluetooth, USB input,
Pandora integration, SiriusXM capability, and AppLink.
Applink allows the unit to display a handful of popular Apps on the LCD
screen. I take a quick run through Waze, DashCommand, and I Heart Radio in
this Ain't Fuelin' behind-the-scenes segment.
I need to post links to Honda Civic dashboard removal vids.

2014 Ford Fiesta SFE EcoBoost 1.0L MPG Road Test
We put a remarkable new 1.0 liter EcoBoost Ford Fiesta to a three-part MPG Road
Test. Can the tiny three-cylinder turbocharged engine deliver 40 MPG? 50 MPG? 60
It all depends on how, when, and where you drive it ...
The first leg of the road test is a round trip from central NJ to Pottstown
PA, primarily on Interstate Highway 78. The second leg is a run from
Allentown, NJ to Long Beach Island through the Jersey Pinelands on Route
539 to Route 72, over the Causeway. The third leg is a trip up the Jersey
Turnpike into Manhattan, via the Holland Tunnel.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost
is a $995 option. It is only available on the SE model and is only offered
with a five-speed manual transmission.
I'll post a link to my full review in the Autobytel channel once it's ready

2014 and 2015 Nissan Altima Detailed Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB

The "family sedan" may not be very exciting, but without midsized sales
auto makers would be in a pickle. Ponder this: the five best-selling
midsized sedans in America accounted for 1.3 million of the 12.8 million
vehicles sold in 2011. With numbers like that, it's important to get your
mass-market people mover right. This means competitive fuel economy, a low
base price and swipe as much tech from your luxury brand as possible.
Either that or just wear a Nissan badge on the front. Say what? The last
generation Altima was the second best-selling car despite being long in the
tooth and filled with some questionable plastics. This Altima has a tougher
task however, it needs to compete with Honda's new Accord and Ford's sexy
Fusion which is selling like hot cakes. Can Nissan's traditional value
proposition make up the difference? Or does the Altima have something else
up its sleeve?
A design that doesn't alienate the customer you expect to return and buy
their second or third car is critical. Just ask Ford how that bubble-Taurus
redesign went in 1996. Still, midsize sedan shoppers demand some style so
Nissan's design team jammed a bit of Maxima, a pinch of Infiniti M and a
"whole-lotta" Versa into a sausage press and cut the Altima off at 191.5
inches. This makes the new Altima longer than a Camry, a hair longer than a
Maxima and essentially the same size as the Accord and Fusion. Nobody will
confuse the Altima with an Aston Martin, nor will they think their neighbor
is driving a budget Bentley. Instead the slab-sided Altima delivers clean
lines and elegant good looks. Think of it as the Midwestern farm girl to
the Fusion's Los Angeles call girl.
Since our tester was the top-of-the-line SL, the cockpit featured a heated
tilt/telescopic steering wheel, an 8-way power driver's seat and manually
adjustable lumbar support. Shoppers that chose the 3.5L V6 will be treated
to a pair of the best looking and best feeling magnesium paddle shifters
this side of a BMW M6. Seriously. There's just one problem: paddle shifters
on a car with a CVT make as much sense as a parking brake on a french
poodle. (Yet for some reason I found myself caressing their magnesium
goodness non-stop when I was behind the wheel.) Like the most entries in
this segment, the front passenger seat remains manually adjustable
regardless of trim level and upholstery. Thanks to Nissan's "Zero Gravity"
seat design, the front seats proved comfortable and didn't' aggravate my
temperamental knee during a 2 hour road trip. Since manufacturers "march to
their own drummer" when measuring legroom, take your family to the dealer
and jam them all in the car before making a purchase.
The crash diet and CVT pay dividends at the pump. The Altima 2.5 manages
27/38/31 MPG (City/Highway/Combined) and does so without direct injection,
start/stop, batteries or aero packages. What about that V6? Nissan's focus
on weight has made the Altima 3.5 lighter than the Accord V6 and Fusion 2.0
EcoBoost by over 200lbs. In our 3.5
SL I averaged an impressive 27.6MPG over a week of mixed driving. This is
notably above the 25MPG combined EPA score despite my commute and the
2,200ft mountain pass I cross twice a day. You can thank the light curb
weight and CVT for that. The Accord V6 matches the Altima's combined EPA
number and the Fusion trumps it by one MPG on paper. In the real world, the
Altima beat both by 4MPG.
When the road curves, a light chassis will only get you so far, thankfully
Nissan tuned the Altima's suspension to be compliant but surprisingly
agile. Adding to the fun-factor, all V6 models are shod with 235/45R18
rubber, notably wider than the V6 Camry's standard 215 or optional 225
tires. The suspension, curb weight and tires combine to give the Altima a
slightly higher road holding score than the Fusion 2.0 EcoBoost we got our hands on, but numbers aren't
everything. The Fusion's steering may be numb, but it manages more feeling
than the Altima and even I have to admit the CVT sucks the fun out of
aggressive driving. If that matters to you, drive past the Nissan dealer
and pick up a Fusion 2.0T with or without AWD.
Some may call this a cop-out, but in my book the Accord, Fusion and Altima
tie for first place in my mind. Here's why: each of this trio plays to a
different audience. The Fusion is gorgeous, more dynamic than the Altima
but has stumbled with the 1.6L EcoBoost quality issues. The Accord is a
traditional choice with a solid reputation and greater visibility thanks to
an enormous greenhouse. Meanwhile the new Altima is a stylish elegant sedan
with a powerful and seriously efficient V6. If I were dropping my own money
on a sedan in this category I would have a hard time choosing between the
Altima 3.5 SL and a Fusion 2.0 EcoBoost.
