2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV | Baierl Budget Cars | Wexford, PA


Way to go GM! Give us the first mass-market electric car! With the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV there is real hope that people in the real world will buy a fully electric car. Go ahead and charge up for a new classic mile per charge range at 238 miles. This assumes you are using the 60 KWH battery pack. This is the largest to be used in a non-exotic electric car so far.


Think about all the green minded commuters who can truly consider this as a viable transport option. The Bolt EV is a rival to the Nissan Leaf and far more affordable than the BMW i3. This compact hatchback has credible room for 5 people and their gear. Its sporty style and special amenities offer interesting competition among more costly conventional vehicles.


I have been waiting for this car. The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV tops all of the electric vehicles I have seen on the market as partial electric cars, like the Prius, began to be accepted in mainstream markets. I am impressed with the 238 mile range, the decent driving dynamics and reasonable affordability. If I were commuting regularly at this time, I would surely take this electric car for a test drive and check my budget. The approximate price range for the western PA region is around $36,000. In truth, there remains ample competition among similar vehicles and compact hybrids and some gasoline fueled hatchbacks that can effectively meet my basic commuting needs for less cost.


Battery Pack


The Bolt EV is so special because it has a brand new super efficient battery pack developed along with LG Chem. It has a gigantic 60-kWh capacity which enables the 238 EPA per charge range rating. This detail is enough for the Bolt EV to be truly realistic for many consumers. This 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is the latest addition to the Chevy lineup. Its specialized electric power platform gives the 5 door compact hatchback an edge in the compact market, plus its capabilities on the road as the first fully electric compact car are extraordinary.


Special Features


The Bolt EV has a sporty suspension which lends itself to feeling really fun on the road.  Let's look closely. The battery pack equals more than one quarter of the car's weight. Because it is located in a low area of the Bolt, it helps maintain balance and drops the center of gravity. That positioning improves the performance of the specialized Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires.


Another remarkable and specialized feature is One Pedal Driving which improves energy recovery and allows you to stop the Bolt EV without using the brake, under certain conditions. Just lift your foot off the accelerator.  I do not understand a lot of the electrical procedures but I am sure that the folks at Baierl Automotive are all up to speed on the latest.


Of course, you already know that Baierl Automotive is right on top of offers for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV.   Go there to explore and test drive this nearly magical electric hatchback.

2017 Honda Fit | Baierl Budget Cars | Wexford, PA


You will love how much fun it is to drive your new 2017 Honda Fit. Yes, it is a subcompact small car. Yes, it gets remarkable fuel economy. And Yes, it is fun to drive.

Look to Honda engineering to keep new models up to speed to meet or exceed customer expectations. Three models of the 2017 Honda Fit offer plenty of options. The LX, EX and XL may not sound fancy as model names, but their specific amenities will please even the fussiest customer. Prices start at $16,000 for the basic LX model.

Fuel Economy


All three models have great fuel economy. Some have up to 33 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway. Take a quick look at the 2017 Honda Fit with its standard 6-Speed Manual Transmission and 4 cylinders. It has 130 hp @ 6600 rpm and delivers great mileage. The driver has full control over shifting. Remember? It is fun to drive.

The 2017 Honda Fit is a perfect example of a subcompact car that gives you more than just transportation. You will have great cargo space and a comfortable rear seat. Super high tech options are standard. Suspension is balanced. Great acceleration and smooth steering add to the driver's fun meter.

Safety and Space


You will be connected for safety, information and entertainment with the best operating systems available for the 1017 Honda Fit. Good visibility and excellent seating comfort add to the sense that it is more than a subcompact. It does cost a bit more than its less fun rivals. Rear seats are so flexible you could call them Magic. Fold seatbacks down for more floor space and a flat floor space. Or flip up the seat bottom to carry tall items, even a Great Dane.

Why is the 2017 Honda Fit so much fun? It is not because of tons of horsepower or racetrack handling. 

It is how the whole little subcompact works together. The Fit has predictable handling and good suspension. Yet it also has sharpness to surprise you. The engine is very responsive and meshes well with steering that feels good. The Fit gives you want you need and more than you expected.

While all three models -- LX, EX and EX-L -- offer the same engine and transmission packages. They all handle as well as well as last year's Sport model.The Fit is a breeze to park.

Special steering features


Special steering features will have you believing it steers by magic also. Super Hightech Motion-Adaptive Electric makes this possible. It analyzes speed, angle and vehicle stability to determine if the Honda Fit is sliding away from its proper path. Then the steering system prompts the driver to take appropriate corrective action.

Don't just take this review at face value. Go to your nearest Baierl dealership to take your 2017 Honda Fit for a test drive. You won't want to give it back!

2016 Subaru Outback | Baierl Budget Cars | Wexford, PA


Searching for a cool crossover SUV? Look closely at the 2016 Subaru Outback. Now is the time for end of the year sales. Typically, a used Subaru Outback from the previous year, in good condition will cost around $23,000. With a little searching you may even find better values. This rate is competitive with similar SUV's like the Mitsubishi Outlander or the Kia Sorrento. Sales for previous year models happen around the same time each year.

Promise or Performance


Many crossover SUV's make a lot of promised about their off road performance. The 2016 Subaru Outback simply fulfills those promises. Its all-wheel-drive system tackles more than snowy roads or dusty trails. With 8.7 inches of ground clearance and its specialized X-Mode off-road assist package demonstrate power, versatility and reliability in real life, not just in promises.

Add to that the luxury interior and most recent driver assist technology and you have the Outback elevated to the range of many luxury SUVs. The Subaru's EyeSight driver assist technology includes active cruise control and collision mitigation. This further enhances the safety of an already comfortable ride. Look under the hood and examine the 2.5 liter engine which gives you precision steering and excellent fuel economy.



A roomy family-friendly crossover SUV with excellent resale value, terrific fuel economy and a well grounded safety record is the 2016 Subaru Outback. Tackle deep snow and off-road trails and get in on end of season value prices if you are ready for action now. Sure, there are bigger and tougher SUV's available and some of them have third row seats as an option. Even their used models are likely to cost more than the Subaru Outback.

Safety and Security


The 2016 Subaru Outback actually only has a few small changes over the previous model. Subaru added the Starlink safety and security system to some trims and the EyeSight system now has a Lane assist feature. Enhanced steering and re-calibrated suspension provide safer and smoother ride. The standard X-Mode is new to Subaru and it improves off-road stability. It helps the Outback maintain the optimum traction even in the worst situations.

2016 Ford Focus | Baierl Budget Cars | Wexford, PA 

When it comes to buying major purchases for the family your focus starts often with finances. With that in mind, the 2017 Ford Focus is a good place to start. It is one of the more affordable cars you can find with a typical price range for a new vehicle is $18,400 to 19,543. So, with good timing and careful searching you are likely even to find a great used 2017 Ford Focus in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

The next consideration is to compare what consumers say about the Ford Focus relative to similar vehicles. Let your fingers do the walking, as they used to say, and learn that the 2017 Ford Focus ranks 9.5 out of 10. The Honda Civic ranks 9.0 and Prius comes in at 8.4 all for 2017 new vehicles and equivalent amenities.



You can choose from 4 different models for the Ford Focus, with Titanium being the top of the line. The sedan and hatchback segment is a tough field for competition. You will compare Hyundai Elantra, Mazda4 and Honda Civic for most of their features, options and price ranges. The 2017 Ford Focus is remarkably fuel-efficient, thanks to the 3 cylinder EcoBoost 123 horsepower engine (in the SE). Add updated styling and the renewed Sync 3 infotainment system to its sporty spirit and you can see why the Focus is so popular. The Ford Focus ST brings the 252 horsepower EcoBoost and the Focus RS comes with 350-horsepower all-wheel-drive (AWD). All of these vehicles are efficient with fuel. Don't forget the all-electric Focus with 80 miles of driving range which competes with the the Volkswagen eGolf and Nissan Leaf. 

Among the EcoBoost engines you will find the 1.0 liter 3 cylinder is super efficient. The 2.0 liter 4-cylinder brings more power and more fun. Of course, the 2.3 liter 350-horsepower is top of the line. Be careful though, the faster you drive the more fuel you burn.

The 2017 Ford Focus leads the pack with some really fine high tech features, great handling and appealing style. Not only is the EcoBoost engine extremely efficient, the ST and RS bring increased performance and power.

There are other vehicles with lower prices and fewer features. The Ford Focus does not offer a wagon or a coupe model. The Focus RS with its all-wheel-drive is high-performance, and it carries a heavier price tag.

What's New in the 2017 Focus?

Not much. If it works well, why change it. A new color, White Gold, is available. The SEL package brings fog lights, a power moonroof, black headlight bezels and 17 inch aluminum wheels with black sections. The Sync 3 is improved. This infotainment system has a large 6.5-inch touch screen that replaces the smaller less user-friendly system.

Go to your Ford dealership and take your favorite 2017 Ford Focus for a test drive. Baierl Budget Cars, proudly serves the Greater Pittsburgh Area with a large selection of budget cars and brands that include Acura, BMW, Chevrolet, Buick, Dodge, Cadillac, Hyundai, Chrysler, Honda,Audi, Fiat, Ford, GMC, and more.
