The Auto Sleuth</br>May 21, 2018

If you could have only one automotive feature, this should be it. At Wheelbase Communications, we’ve chosen to stay away from providing an automotive-news column until we could do it in a non-traditional way. And here it is: the Auto Sleuth. Our worldly gumshoe has his ear to the ground, digging up the latest news on everything from product launches and updates to names in the news. The column is solely driven by reader interest. No boring statistics or auto-company pap here, just the straight goods peppered with the Auto Sleuth’s commentary and speculative, gossipy-style.

Loading and unloading is difficult without a ladder, however, as is washing the roofs of tall vans and utility vehicles. The Utility Step hooks to the front door latch of virtually every car and truck made over the last 40-plus years, which literally give you a step up to the roof.

Buick Verano: 2012-’17</br>May 7, 2018

For not a lot of money, the Verano came with plenty of standard and optional luxury features. Compared with the Cruze, the Verano provided owners with a quiet, refined ride, thanks to plenty of added sound-absorbing material. The front seats were also more comfortable than the Cruze’s.

Audi A3: 2006-’13</br>April 30, 2018

The A3 proved to be an excellent introductory model for the Audi line. Not surprisingly, there was a reasonable amount of stowage space in back and the rest of the interior was clean and uncluttered. The standard 200-horsepower turbo four-cylinder was a smooth-running jewel of an engine with enough spunk to propel the A3 to 60 mph from zero in 6.5 seconds (according to Audi). The optional 250-horsepower V6 made the Audi even quicker, while the torquey TDI’s arrival turned the car into quite the fuel miser.

A modern solution is at hand with the Cassette Adaptor Bluetooth from Ion Sound Experiences.

The Discovery’s mostly aluminum unitized structure integrates the body panels, floor, firewall and roof, replacing the LR4’s hefty body-on-frame construction. The result is a weight reduction of about 1,000 pounds (to about 4,750), despite being slightly larger overall. The base supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 makes 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Optional is a 3.0-liter V-6 turbo-diesel rated at 254 horsepower and 443 pound-feet.
