Re: Range with A/C

I find watching the energy consumption for accessories is the best way to make this determination. With summer coming on (with a vengeance) in SoCal, AC on (set to 71°) most of the time, I am seeing about 4-5% of my overall energy consumption going to accessories. So that's maybe a ten mile hit to r...

So a company has more flexibility to reduce lease price than it does to reduce selling price. Actually, no. I've looked at the leasing math from all directions. Leasers are not getting any special deals, though I agree leasers are helping the automakers' bottom lines by signing over their federal t...
