Holy Moley, according to the Chevrolet Bolt owner's manual, the compact electric vehicle’s range coukld drastically depreciate over eight years. Apparently, the range can drop to as low as 142 miles from its original 238 miles. This is not unique to just the Bolt, though; apparently Tesla and the Nissan Leaf have the same issue.

The 2017 Dodge Challenger GT AWD has debuted, just in time for snow. The snow-ready coupe comes equipped with a 3.6-liter V-6 with 305 horsepower and 268 lb.-ft. of torque. That is plenty of power to have a blast in the snow and keep you rolling all year round. Expect sales to begin in January.

Driving is inherently a dangerous activity but that danger is drastically enhanced with the operator is tired. AAA recommends drivers get at least seven hours of sleep before driving a vehicle, and went on to say that drivers who've had four hours of sleep are 4.3 times more likely to get into an accident.
