Luckily the Leaf has changed with the times, and it’s still a bit ahead of its newer rivals in terms of range, that all-important measure of an EV’s real-world usability. For 2016, the Leaf’s uplevel SV and SL trim levels now come standard with a higher-capacity, 30.0-kWh battery pack that replaces the previous 24.0-kWh battery, which is still offered on the base Leaf S. The new, larger battery affords an EPA-rated range of 107 miles, a useful improvement over the 24-kWh Leaf’s 84 miles.

All-new or updated electric cars are imminent from Ford , General Motors , BMW , Hyundai , and Volkswagen , all of which promise to deliver 100 miles of range or better. But as of this writing, the Leaf is the only non-Tesla EV that tops the century mark. The Kia Soul EV is next-best, at 93 miles of rated range, while others such as the Volkswagen e-Golf and Ford Focus Electric —in their current forms, at least—are rated at only 83 miles and 76 miles, respectively, on a full charge.

The Leaf’s new battery lived up to its promise in our experience. In mixed driving, including some battery-sapping highway stints, we measured a maximum driving range of 100 miles. Introduce more variables, like a highway-intensive commute or more extreme temperatures, and that number would decrease, predictably. But if it’s to be driven exclusively around town at lower speeds, it doesn’t seem far-fetched to see the Leaf match, or even beat, the EPA-rated 107-mile figure.

The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder adds five new exterior colors, a revised continuously variable transmission (CVT), a new Family Entertainment Package with dual seven-inch screens mounted on the headrests, and Hill Descent Control on four-wheel drive models. SV trim levels add fog lights, auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink and heated side mirrors with the SL grade adds a 120V power outlet. Packages have also been revised with the SL Tech Package now adding the Around View Monitor multi-camera parking system, and tow hitch and harness. The SL Premium Package adds navigation and the Around View Monitor.

The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder is a seven-passenger crossover slotting below the full-size Armada and below the smaller Rogue. It is available in four grades and in front- or four-wheel-drive configurations. A hybrid variant is also available for all trims except the base S model.

The 2015 Pathfinder is available with a 3.5-liter V-6 making 265 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque or a supercharged 2.5-liter hybrid I-4 rated at 250 hp and 243 lb-ft paired to a CVT. Fuel economy is good, with front-drive V-6 models achieving 20/26 mpg city highway and four-wheel-drive models at 19/25 mpg. Hybrid variants are the most efficient at 25/28 mpg in front-drive guise and 25/27 with four-wheel drive. Driving dynamics is excellent for a crossover, tracking straight on the highway but gets rough on ill-maintained surfaces. Acceleration is adequate with either engine due to the CVT being “burdened with moving with a 4200-pounds.”

If you're looking for a one-tonne 4x4 pick-up, your decision has gotten quite a bit harder in recent times. New models from several different brands have been sprouting out like weeds, and manufacturers are marketing them more like glamorous lifestyle vehicles than just workmans tools.

But a glamorous lifestyle vehicle will be quickly laughed off the building site if it can't handle more than a sprinkling of mud, and as Nissan has been making pick-ups for more than 80 years, it would be poor form if the latest Navara couldn't handle itself. Recent successes with the Qashqai, Juke and X-Trail means that the Navara pick-up is said to be a combination of these two knowledge bases: a tough, off-roading, working truck with the refined road manners of a crossover.

The new Navara needs to be good; the Mitusbishi L200, Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger are thorns in its side and we'll soon see the Fiat Fullback joining the fray. Nissan is also sharing the Navara's platform with the Renault Alaskan and even Mercedes-Benz is poised to sell a pick-up in the UK that will have tech from Nissan, too. The options are growing rapidly.

Plantskydd works by emitting an odor that animals associate with predator activity. Research has proven that odor-based repellents (Plantskydd) are more effective than other repellent systems; where the animal needs to taste treated plants before being repelled. Animals avoid plants before they bite—not after!

Its long-term effectiveness is attributable to the tenacity of its 100% natural, vegetable oil binder in sticking to plants — even under severe snow/rainfall conditions: up to 6 months over winter, 3-4 months in summer.

“rabbits and deer immediately stopped eating my flowers – I was truly blown away at its effectiveness.” I was skeptical when I first bought Plantskydd.  I had tried everything to discourage deer – Irish Spring soap, egg-based sprays, pepper sprays, urine, Skoot, electric fence – you name it.  My frustration intensified when the rabbit population… View Article

“VOLE update:  There is absolutely no sign of voles.  No holes, no mounds, no vole damage.” I actually worked in my flower bed this weekend, doing some preliminary cleaning. So, I was able to really survey the situation. There is absolutely no sign of voles. No holes, no mounds, no damage. I actually have black… View Article
