    WARNING! BEFORE YOU BUY A GPS UNIT FOR YOUR CAR. MAKE SURE THAT THE MANUFACTURER WILL COVER BATTERY REPLACEMENT AFTER THE WARRENTY RUNS OUT. ((( TOMTOM GPS HARDWARE ))) IS NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SUPPORTED AFTER THE WARRENTY. NO HARDWARE MANUALS, NO INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REPLACE THE BATTERY, JUST A MINOR DISCOUNT FOR A NEW PRODUCT. THEIR EXCUSE IS THAT THE PRODUCT IS MADE IN CHINA.

    You know that TomTom GPS units are marketed by TOMTOM and not by Fry's, right? and you can get them at Best Buy, Costco, Target, Wal*Mart and even CVS Pharmacies... and anyways a lot of products will not cover battery under warranty including Ipods and laptops and many other products that include batteries, right?Hiya kids. Here is an important message from your Uncle Bill. Don't buy drugs. Become a pop star, and they give you them for free!

    I think that's with anything you buy. I had a similar incident with my hair straightener. Paid around 130 for one so it would last a long time. Nope...lasted a year, I checked the warrenty and it's only good for a year.

    Really now???? You think it is up to Fry's, Best buys, or any other retailer to cover the battery in a unit they sold you? Think about it. Fry's didn't design the unit, nor did they make or produce the unit, why would they need to cover the unit? And if you look at most items that takes rechargeable batteries, the manufacture only covers the batter for 90 days after that your on your own. The battery is a consumable item just like the lights in you lamp.

    Talk about a gas saver. I drove from San Diego to Las Vegas in a 2010 Honda Insight and got 51 MPG.  
     
    And yes its 71 degrees in Las Vegas, its really nice weather this time of year. On the off-ramp of 15 and Flamingo Rd.

    My average speed was 66 mph. If you are trying to save gas you will can get 40-50 mpg. If you drive like a normal driver you will get around 30-40 mpg. and if your an aggressive driver you will get about 25-30 mpg.  
     
    The electric motor assists the 1.3-liter gas engine if it needs more horsepower, usually when you want to accelerate or the rpm goes up when climbing a mountain. Its like turbo.  
     
    When you've stopped the engine also turns off and turn on instantly when you release the brakes.  
     
    I like the car.

    I know they were never really that great of a car to begin with, but the one my grandpa had before his new one ran ok, barely in the shop. But this new one, its always in the shop. Its suppose to be a V6 but accelerates like shit, my Toyota accelerates fast and smoother. But my grandpa is to attatched, I think to him its to closest thing he will ever get to a Rolls.

    that is why they made the v12 those accelerate like a v6 the v6 is more like a 3 cyl .... remember its the British way of doing cars. If you really work at their engines (redesign the damn things yourself) you can make them have some real power but they will break parts too easily.  
     
    Also that is the first I have heard of a jag not always being fixed ....... I would seal it in a glass case and wear it to on a chain when you go to Vegas.Looking for my head ............... yeah the eight valve one yeah ....
