Excalibur 3926TB Review

Dehydration is a really good way to preserve foods. It’s healthy, clean and cheap. It really concentrates the natural flavour of the food. The Excalibur 3926TB has been receiving some rave reviews so we thought it’s time we had a quick look at it.

The fist thing that struck us is the price. For such a professional piece of equipment it seemed like a really good deal. Have a look at the latest price of the Excalibur. Here are some of the key specifications of the 3926TB:

There are 9 trays in total which adds up to a massive 15 square feet of drying space. There really is a lot of space in there! There’s also a built in timer which means you don’t always need to be monitoring it. Just set if off and forget about it. It’s as simple as that.

As you would expect there is an adjustable thermostat which means you can adjust the temperature that the Excalibur dries at.

But what about the most important thing? What are the results like? First of all everything is dried at exactly the same rate. This means whatever is in the tray is nice and consistent in all of the trays.

Obviously different objects dry at different rates so it all depends on what you put in the trays. But the results are great as long as you set the required temperature (there is a rough guide on top of the device). It does exactly what it’s meant to and at a good speed. The following items are perfect for dehydrating in the Excalibur:

  • Herbs
  • Living foods
  • Can be used for raising bread & making yoghurt
  • Vegetables
  • Fruit
  • Meats & fish
  • Jerky

The Excalibur has a strong sturdy design (even though it’s mostly plastic) and is reliable. It’s perfect for families, gardeners, craftspeople, sportsmen and even small kitchens. You can’t really go wrong with it – some of the alternatives seem to be quite unreliable. It will fit almost anywhere due to its size – 9 x 17 x 12.5 inches.

Best Solar Watches

Solar watches have been around for quite a while, and in that time their efficiency has improved massively. You no longer will have to worry about replacing batteries.

The power stored in the solar cells should be able to last for months without light. This means it’s no problem at all when your watch is covered by a long sleeve and during the night. Not all solar watches are this reliable though.

Here are a few of the very best (and stylish!) ones:

Seiko Men’s SNE045 Solar White Dial Watch

I personally love the design of the Seiko. That slightly old fashioned minimalist style looks incredible.

It it’s perfect for both formal and casual situations with its two tone design and polished finish.

No battery change is needed at all for this watch. You can literally put it on and forget about it. It’s incredibly reliable but is protected by a two year warranty.

And that’s even if you go under water too! It’s water resistant up to 99ft. The watch also keeps track of the day of the week and the date.

Casio Men’s PAG240T-7CR Pathfinder

The Pathfinder is very different to the Seiko. It has a much more modern feel to it and is packed with a ton of features. It’s perfect for people who like the outdoors but is great for casual use too.

The watch is powered completely by solar power and can recharge from light sources both inside and outside. You won’t need to ever change the battery.

The watch also has an altimeter, barometer, compass, thermometer, sunrise / sunset information and a light. For a solar powered watch this is very impressive!

Citizen Women’s EW3144-51A Eco-Drive Sport

The Citizen Woman’s watch features a beautiful polished two tone style. As well as its analogue display it also displays the day of the week and date. It’s also resistant to water for up to 330ft.

Perfect, like the Seiko, for both formal and informal occasions.

As you would expect it’s powered by natural and artificial light and so never needs a battery.

Casio Men’s EF340SB-1A5 Edifice

This watch is very very cool. It looks super stylish with its modern analogue design. You’ll notice there are three black sub dials, theme represent the day of the week, the date, and a 24 hour clock.

The watch also resists scratching, which is great. You don’t want to spoil something this good looking! It’s also water resistant up to 330 feet and is powered with analog-quartz movement.

As with all the watches featured on the site, the Casio Edifice is solar powered and can recharge from both natural and artificial light.

Available in alternative colors.

Watches which are solar powered are pretty common these days. If you find a watch which you really like, but isn’t solar powered, a quick search (on Google or Amazon) should tell you if there’s an alternative which is. Try to buy from somewhere who will give you a good guarantee. These watches are reliable, but if something does go wrong, it will probably be during the first few days / weeks.

Buying these watches can actually save money and a great deal of time because you don’t need to buy, and then replace batteries. So it makes sense to get a solar watch rather than a traditional battery powered one.

White Mountain Appalachian Ice Cream Maker Review

If making your own ice cream sounds like a dream, the White Mountail Electronic Ice Cream Maker could be perfect. All you need to do is grab the bucket, throw the ingredients in, and you’re ready to make amazing tasting home made ice cream.

Because there is 3 way movement (the outside canister and the two blade directions) the ingredients are continuously folded. This means that the ice cream comes out very creamy. The motor has no problems stopping and restarting; this is good if you want to add fruit, chocolate or whatever to a nice and thick ice cream mixture.

Probably the best thing about the Mountain Tail is the quality of construction. They’ve not tried to cut costs at all by using poor quality materials. Just look at the bucket; it’s made from real Pine wood and looks like it’ll last for absolutely ages. They could have gone with a cheap plastic bucket and sold the device for the same price but decided not to. It’s not just the bucket; it’s the whole device. It should last for ages. This is even backed up by a 5 year warranty.

So what about the taste? Well that partly depends on how good you are at making ice cream and what sort of flavours you decide to make (there are recipes included). If you get the ingredients right then it tastes delicious. Better than supermarket ice cream. You can really taste the freshness.

Yes, it’s not exactly cheap. But you need to pay for quality. If you’re after a cheap electronic ice cream maker then you’re going to be disappointed. They’ll just leave you with a mess. The process of good ice cream making is actually quite complex. If you’re thinking of getting one of the cheaper devices then you’re probably just better buying store made ice cream.

The only downsides are that it’s quite loud when it’s turned on. However this isn’t really a problem. You expect it to be loud really. The motor uses a 12,000 RPM motor after all!

In conclusion – a really high quality machine which is amazing for home use. It’s probably even OK for some commercial use too because of its reliability and speed. But we’ve not tested it in this capacity so don’t take our word for it!

 

JBL ES20 High-Performance 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers Review

I’m somewhat of an audiophile. I’ve loved loads of different kinds of music since I’ve been a kid. Trust me when I say I’ve been through a lot of sets of speakers! So I know what’s good and what’s bad. If I hear music through a low quality set of speakers it actually makes me cringe!

So let’s look at the JBL ES20 Bookshelf Speakers. First some specifications:

  • Uses UHF drivers cable of 40Hz for which produces excellent highs
  • Computer optimized bass
  • Waveguide delivers sound evenly
  • Includes a 1 inch tweeter.
  • Cellulose-fibe coans for piston like motion
  • Dual tweeters

So down to the details. The JBL ES20 are a very good looking pair of speakers they look very sleek  and stylish. They look modern yet should be able to fit well into any house regardless of whether you have a modern or old fashioned theme going on.

JBL are a brand you can trust. I have one of their Airplay products and even though it didn’t cost too much the performance was amazing. Chances are you will have heard JBL products in action before. They claim their products ”surround you in more than 50 percent of all movie theaters worldwide”.

Onto the sound. The JBL ES20 is designed to provide great audio in all genres of music / film. From soft subtle sounds to heavy booming noise. It can do them all very well. It’s also very good with the ambience and detail of the sound. You will hear every note perfectly. This is especially important if you’re into softer, or more technical music. It’s actually quite surprising the sound is so good in a system this small (10 x 21.8 x 16.8 inches). 86DB should be more than enough volume for even the largest rooms.

They’re a diverse pair of speakers which will suit home entertainment and music use equally well.

If I had to summarize the JBL ES20 Bookshelf Speakers sound, it would be “detailed”. You could easily pay twice the cost of these speakers but receive little improvement in sound quality. For bookshelf speakers they’re hard to beat.

Best Carpet Cleaners & Steamers

Buying a carpet steamer can be really convenient – especially if you have animals or kids. It may also be much cheaper in the long term to actually buy your own carpet steamer rather than renting one. Especially if you need to do it all the time! They work by using steam to quickly sanitize and clean surfaces. They also leave the surface pretty dry. We also look at some pure, non steam based, carpet cleaners. So what are the best carpet cleaners on the market?

MR-100 Primo Steam Cleaning System

The MR 100 is a great little steam cleaner. It kills bed bugs and dust mites as well as other things that can cause your family harm. It’s perfect for cleaning and sanitizing your entire house. What’s better is that it doesn’t use any chemicals to do this. Just the steam!

It’s not just for carpets. It comes with a range of attachments which means you can use it to clean anywhere in and outside your house. You can even clean your car engine, and suits with it. It’s a really diverse device useful for so many tasks. It’s reliable and easy to use too – a good deal.

Hoover MaxExtract 60 PressurePro Carpet Deep Cleaner

The Hoover MaxExtract has a massive 397 reviews on Amazon, so you can get a pretty good idea about what the product is like there.

Click here to see the reviews. Unlike the Primo steam this device is a specialized carpet cleaner. It can’t do as much as the Primo, but it cleans the carpet better.

It essentially deep cleans your carpet (and upholstery) making it look brand new.

It does this by using rotating brushes designed to surround the fibers of the carpet and remove dirt at every angle. The cleaning is further helped by pressurised heated water which loosens the dirt.

Comes with several different attachments.

Reliable Corporation EB250 Enviromate Brio Steam Cleaner

Another steamer with a ton of accessories (21 to be exact!). Very similar to the Primo in terms of pretty much everything – like disinfecting without chemicals. It also has a similar price.

This device is newer though. Does that mean it’s better? Only time will tell. So far it has had excellent reviews.

It’s nice and manoeuvrable (it’s surprisingly light) due to the wheels being able to turn 360 degrees. It’s also very easy to use – the pressure gauge and control panel are very easy to read. As you can see the Brio Steam Cleaner perhaps looks more modern than MR100.

Best Home Planetarium

I’ve always loved planetariums so got really excited when home planetarium system first started being released. Home planetarium devices can create some amazing visual effects right in your own home.

There are quite a few available for sale. Some are really impressive, some are a bit cheap. So here we will look at some of the best offerings.

Laser Stars Indoor Light Show

If you don’t care about the device being educational, and just want something awesome on the ceiling then this is the device for you. It has a crystal clear animated star display powered by glass lenses, plus a green laser.

It has the holographic technology needed create tons of lights – it’s visually amazing (especially the cloud formations). You can also adjust the size of the projection surface which lets you tailor the light show to any room.

Have a look at the video for a rough demonstration of what you can expect to see. It does look better in real life though, video recorders, even in HD can’t capture how good it looks. It may be a bit more expensive than the others but it’s worth it for one of the most impressive star shows available.

Uncle Milton Star Theatre Pro

The Uncle Milton Star Theatre is a really tried and tested product with nearly 100 reviews on Amazon. Essentially it’s a portable planetarium that projects a map of the night sky ceiling . The projection has two discs, a Starfield disc and a earth moon and sun disk.

The display is crystal clear. It is also quite bright, but not too bright that it would stop you falling asleep if you use it to help you drift off. Custom disks are available if you want more choice of what you look at. This was initially one of the criticisms with the original device.

A decent all round device for the money.

Celestron SkyScout Personal Planetarium

This planetarium is a little bit different to the others.  It doesn’t work as a projector, rather you lift up the device to your eye, look upwards, and it identifies the planets around that area.

It does this by using GPS technology and can locate up to 6000 planets starts and constellations. Another nice feature is the way you can select the planet / star you want to look at on the display, and the SkyScout will give you directions and tell you where it is. There is also a whole host of text and audio descriptions providing a wealth of information.

You can also pick the best current objects to view in the night sky (based on your current time and location). Not only is it an effective & educational device. It’s really fun too. Not the best device if you want amazing visuals in your living room though, it’s not designed for that.

These three products won’t disappoint you and we’d advice you to get one of them if you want a good home planetarium system. Some of the others have disappointing visuals or are inaccurate.

Picking Gadgets and Electronics up for a Good Price Offline

Sometimes I genuinely want to help local merchants out. So I buy stuff from them that I could have got a cheaper online. But it doesn’t always need to be this way. You can get some amazing deals with good old fashioned bartering.
You see, shops can sell cheaper, but they don’t because some people will pay the prices for convenience sake. Or they just don’t know how much cheaper they can get it for.

They will still make money if they give a discount. Just not as much. Why sell a TV for $500 when you can sell it for $600? The main competitor of these shops isn’t an online store, but one located close to it. If their local competitors lower their price so will they.

However if you make it clear that you won’t buy for the price they’re selling at, only a lower price, you may be able to get a great deal. Or at least some extra gear thrown in. They want sales, it doesn’t matter if they don’t make as much as they could have. You’ve got the perfect argument – if they don’t go lower you’ll just buy online.

Try doing something like this – go into a shop and look at the product you want to buy. Any shop will do, but independent shops, not big brands work the best. Experiment and see where you get the most success. Someone should come over and ask if you want any help. When they do explain how much cheaper it is online. Say you really want to help a local business – really make it clear you want to help them. Make it look like you’re attempting to do them a favour. (Oh and if you can, try and find someone who looks like they can offer you a big discount – like the shop owner or manager!)

At this point you should get a discount or at least something else thrown into the deal. Depending on how good you are, you may be able to go lower. Don’t have the “oh you can’t barter with shops” attitude. That’s setting yourself up to fail.
Try your luck with a number of shops. Sometimes you may get nothing. You may hear “we don’t give discounts”. Don’t give up too soon, negotiate a bit longer, but if they still don’t budge try somewhere else. You’re not taking advantage of these shops! You’re helping them. Always remember that.

What have you got to lose? If they say no, go home and buy off Amazon. It’s that simple. It’s also a great skill to learn – bartering. You won’t get taken advantage of as much when you next go on holiday! I don’t know about you, but before I started doing this, I never bartered. For some reason we see it as unacceptable. I don’t know why.

It may get annoying for store owners if everyone was doing this, but that’s the point. They’re not!
Can you get cheaper than online? Well sometimes, if you’re good enough. It depends. With enough practice your changes of getting stuff cheaper should improve.

So there’s a little experiment for you to try. One last reason you should try this – you feel great afterwards! You get a real buzz from being able to negotiate the price down. You think “I’ve just done something that 99% of people don’t”.
Have you tried this? Let us know how well it worked. Have any tips or tricks to share? Leave a comment!

Irobot Roomba 620 Review

How awesome are robotic vacuum cleaners? I absolutely love them and only recently found out that they existed but they have been around for quite a while now. The technology is improving all the time.

They seem like a real time saver. But so much can go wrong with them. A poor robotic vacuum cleaner is going to be virtually worthless. You can just imagine it… smashing into your furniture and spewing dust everywhere.

But a good one – well that could actually save hours of your time! It will clean when you’re at work or out of the house. So where does the Irobot Roomba 620 sit?

Irobot Roomba 620 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

The Roomba 620 is a relatively new device which has already receive lots of positive reviews. It genuinely does a great job of cleaning the house. It covers 95% of what you’re going to vacuum. Obviously there are a few places it can’t go (that’s to be expected), but it can also do a better job at cleaning the hard to reach places, like under the sofa. It’s small enough to get into these places so can actually do a better job than cleaning with an old fashioned vacuum cleaner.

Features

The Roomba looks sleek, modern and futuristic. Definitely not hard on the eyes but it may look out of place in an older looking home. But the most important things you need to know is what it can do.

It’s surprisingly good at going over a wide range of surfaces – rugs, carpet wooden floor, rough brick floor. It cleans them all equally well. Luckily it’s so advanced that it knows where the stairs are in a house. So it will never damage itself by falling down them! These sensors also stop it crashing into objects. The Roomba in genuinely an advanced piece of technology.

In terms of the software in use, it’s also incredible advanced. The robot actually learns your house layout and does multiple passes (which should mean less bumps!). All you need to do is empty it! It even recharges itself in its own dock.

How does it work?

The Roomba 620 maps out a 360 degree view of the room so it can clean everywhere. It usually does this by going around the outside of the room. Kind of so it can scan it. This helps it know where it has cleaned, and where it hasn’t cleaned. It even knows when it’s done one room and then moves onto the next. The device uses iAdapt Responsive Cleaning Technology, this means it can use complex sensors to find the most dirty areas of the floor and give them preferential cleaning treatment.

Automated cleaning is a great idea, especially when the device works as well as the Roomba 620. This device will save you time. The only downside is you won’t burn off as many calories doing the house work!

Cheap Karaoke Machines

Let’s be honest. You don’t just want a cheap karaoke machine, but one which is good value. Buying one which is too cheap is going to result in a system that lets you down with its poor quality and unreliability. Some of the very low cost machines are more toys for kids. We don’t cover them here.

Other machines, while pretty high quality, don’t have a display screen. So you can play a song on them, and the audio is good, but you can’t see the lyrics on screen. To us that’s the whole point of a Karaoke machine! There are two machines which we think are cheap, but work well too. You won’t be disappointed with these:

The Singing Machine Smg-901 Professional

The SMG-901 has a screen which allows you to see the lyrics as you sing. You can either use a special karaoke CD or use and ipod/ other mp3 player to do this too. The device comes with two microphones so you can easily perform duets. There are also various ways you can mix and perfect the sound using echo and volume controls. The quality is good, but you get what you pay for. It’s not as good as the more expensive machines.

This device is perfect for a party / fun thing to have around the house. The machine can be plugged into the TV so you can see lyrics on a bigger screen. You can also connect it to a more powerful sound system if you want. If you don’t do this the sound comes out of the speaker at the back which is still pretty loud.

 Have a look at the machine in more detail.

Singing Machine Disco Lights CDG Karaoke System

Want a few more visuals when singing karaoke? Think your living room could look more like a disco? Then this is the machine for you. It has duel rotating disco lights at the top which can really add to the atmosphere.

The rest of the features of this device are actually pretty similar to the one above. So in terms of performance they’re pretty much identical. Essentially the question comes down to whether you want the disco balls or not!

The Singing Machine, who make these devices are the leader in the home karaoke industry. They’ve been making the machines for over 25 years. Also they have an online music channel which is where you can get the new songs.

Buy the CDG Karaoke System.

Devices which are more professional start at the $200 mark. Those are better if you want the machine in a bar for example. These machine are good for:

  • A party
  • Kids & adults alike
  • Vocal practice / training
  • Fun!
  • Band practice

Remote Control Robots for Kids

Now when I was a child, the one thing I would have loved is a remote control robot! Unfortunately I don’t think they made them back then, or if they did they were very expensive. I’m sure young kids will be delighted with any of the robots on this page, but remember some of the technology they use is actually quite advanced. You don’t want to buy a cheap one and end up disappointed with the results.

WowWee Tribot Talking Companion

The Tribot can do so much! First of all you can do the obvious stuff – move him around with the remote control. But he also tells jokes, can play games, guard an area, home in on the user, tell you when he’s fallen over and you can even program him with a movement sequence.

It’s actually surprising how fast and manoeuvrable the Tribot is. He can really get some speed up! He’s really easy to control too – you just tilt the controller and he moves. This is perfect for young kids who can’t read the controller buttons yet.

The one thing you don’t want with this sort of toy is it breaking straight away. Luckily it’s very durable, although not indestructible! It can definitely survive a fair few bumps and knocks though. Take a look at the video to see the movement and some of the features demonstrated.

WowWee Robosapian

Another WowWee product now. This one is definitely more human than the Tribot and is perhaps better for children a little older. I guess it could be described as less silly than the Tribot! It actually walks and can turn using its legs, rather than a wheel. This looks impressive although it’s quite a bit slower.

The Robosapian can actually pick things up in its hands (or perhaps claws is a better description!) and then throw them. So yes – it can do bowling. Sort of. You can actually make the Robosapian do quite a complex list of commands – up to 84 commands can be programmed in.

There are also a selection of pre programmed moves like kung fu, giving high fives and dancing. You can even download software so you can make him do even more stuff.

D-Rex Interactive Dinosaur

This robot dinosaur is from Mattel and is absolutely incredible. Forget kids, I want one! The D-Rex has been universally well received, just look at some of the reviews it has received on Amazon.

It responds to both voice and touch commands, has realistic skin and even has its own personality. You really need to see it in action to see how well it moves. So have a look at the video.

You can even set him in “seek” mode. In this mode he will use a noise sensor to try and locate you. He can also be put into guard mode like some of the robots above.

However unlike the robots above you can’t directly control where he goes. So you can’t make him go over to the other side of the room with the control, but he can follow you there. He’s more like a pet! Oh and did we mention you can feed him by putting things in his mouth too? A perfect friend for any child (or adult)!

Cobra XRS9770 Review

Essentially the Cobra XRS9770 is a device which detects signals from radar and laser guns in the area. It then provides you with a warning. There are several uses for this, and everyone could use it for different things. Not only will it alert you to the presence of radar / laser guns, it will also tell you the type of band. It alerts you of threats well in advance so you have plenty of time to make a decision.

Here are some specifications:

  • 7 radar signal detection, 6 laser signal detection, and two emergency safety warning system detection.
  • VG2 or Spectre I/IV alert
  • DigiView display with digital text or voice alert function.
  • Can tell the device if you’re in a city or on the highway which reduces false readings.
  • Digital voice
  • 360° protection
  • Completely undetectable
  • Provides a direction heading
  • Eight point e-compass included too.

The system has great range. It can easy detect from miles away. It also is very user friendly- you can get up and running in no time. The display is easy to read and the electronic voice easy to hear.

However there will occasionally be a false alert. The problem is, you never know when something is a false alert or not. There could easily be a radar or laser gun in the area. Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. So false alerts are usually unverified. It’s better to be over sensitive than the other way around!

The false signal rejection does work pretty well. In all honesty even the more expensive devices will have problems with false signals.

It also looks pretty good and fits in well anywhere. The suction is good so it never slides around. Overall it’s a great device for the money. Pretty good value. Think of it as an investment! You’ll get less tickets.

Cheap Home Laser Hair Removal Device

Home laser hair removal is becoming an increasingly popular and effective. The devices have improved as the technology has improved. Due to their complexity a lot of them are still very expensive. With laser hair removal you don’t want to be taking too many risks. A poorly constructed device can be unsafe. There is only really one device which seems to give decent results at an OK price. Remember the golden rule – you get what you pay for. But buying a laser hair removal device can save you money if you’re always going to the clinic.

Remington IPL6000USA

The Remington IPL6000 is over $100 cheaper than its nearest competitors, yet it does give some very good results. The device works by seeking out the dark colored pigment in the skin and sending heat and light towards it in one big blast. This blast hopefully destroys / badly damages the hair follicle therefore reducing growth. First of all the system makes sure it’s ok to use on your skin – it scans your skin type. Laser hair removal doesn’t work very well on people with very dark skin. You can also set different intensity settings, the higher the intensity, the more it will hurt. But this is something you will get used to.

The Remington (like most devices) isn’t a miracle worker. So you won’t be perfectly hairless after just one session. It takes many sessions over many months. Remington state that results should be achieved at around the 6 month point.

Although you should notice your hair growth slowing much sooner. Negative feedback about the device seems to come from people who don’t understand that you need to use it in the long term, not just the short term.

The device is easy to use (it beeps at you when you need to change the body part you’re working on), durable and reliable. It also gives great long term results.

Overall the Remington is a very good buy. Why spend $100-200+ on the more expensive systems? This device does most of what they do at a very good price. Any disadvantages with it will also be shared by the more expensive alternatives do to the nature of laser hair removal.

Here is a brief video all about how the device works, and the methods to use while using it.

2018 Volkswagen Passat Review, Price, Release Date

2018 Volkswagen Passat Review, Price, Release Date – The Volkswagen Passat is expected because of its following complete redesign at some point in 2018. even though no established details continues to be launched, the car will likely be constructed on the automaker’s mob modular platform that now underpins several models in the 2018 Volkswagen Passat and audio lineups.

powertrain specifics are nevertheless unidentified, but 2018 Volkswagen Passat has mentioned it promises to back away greatly in u.s. marketing and advertising of its “clear diesel” technologies in the wake of a significant pollutants scandal discovered in 2015. in the present Passat, consumers get an option among a 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-tube engine creating 170 Hewlett-Packard with 184 lb-feet of torque, and a stronger 3.6-liter v6 creating 280 Hewlett-Packard with 258 lb-feet.

the present era Passat continues to be available for sale because 2011 in the event it debuted for the 2012 model year. adopting a bigger, much more large design to be able to attract American clients.

2018 Volkswagen Passat redesign and changes

the overall appearance of the new Passat is really contemporary, neat and refreshing. 2018 Volkswagen Passat  has up-to-date the front-end of this new model with up-to-date headlamps, somewhat remodeled grille and restyled bumpers – it is an inexpensive and great way to update the appear of a model, all producers get it done, but we believe 2018 Volkswagen Passat have totally nailed it.

2018 Volkswagen Passat equipment

anticipate seeing the typical variety of technologies and equipment installed (based on cut degree and options ticked); automated wipers, auto directed front lights, lane help, anti- crash with auto braking, rear look at camera, keyless entrance and begin, adaptive luxury cruise manage, wireless Bluetooth, universal serial bus online connectivity, wi-fi, apple inc can play and google android auto – keep in mind that 2018 Volkswagen Passat would like your company, they will be creating their goods as appealing as feasible.

2018 Volkswagen Passat specs

we have seen no verification of changes or updates to the powertrain, and 2018 Volkswagen Passat have freely mentioned they will not be driving their ‘clean diesel’ technologies in u.s., so it is probably that we will see the 2018 Passat released with the exact same powertrain configurations, to ensure that will mean a 1.8 liter 4-tube turbo with 170 hp and 184 lb/feet of torque and a 3.6 liter v6 with 280 bhp and 258 lb of torque – it might be that 2018 Volkswagen Passat modify them somewhat for energy effectiveness or energy, but it is improbable to incorporate any extreme alter.

2018 Volkswagen Passat price

we believe that Volkswagen has the pricing for the Passat maybe even a small on the inexpensive part; the 2018 Passat ought to begin in the area of $24,000, which to have an auto attempting as higher as this, is definitely value. maybe this is just 2018 Volkswagen Passat attempting to clean away their previous.

2018 Volkswagen Passat release date
