Hey there Mr./Ms. Unique Person. You deserve a unique car. Sports sedans are a dime a dozen these days. Luxury crossovers aren’t far behind. Perhaps an SAC is what you’re looking for. Want one? You’ll have to shop at a BMW store because at the moment, the only way to get one is to buy [...]

What did I do last summer? A 900 mile family road trip in California. A nightmare for some but I like driving (and, needless to say, my family). Voyages like these are the perfect test for family rigs and for this trip I’ve chosen Chevy’s new 2010 Equinox. Yes, I’ve already reviewed it but that [...]
True utility for those happy to admit they have a family

More exclusive than an already rare standard Continental GT. More cylinders than two Toyota Corollas. More money too (but you probably figured that one out by now). The economy [...]
The most popular vehicles in America are not cars, they’re pickups. Ford F150 and Chevy Silverado have the #1 and 2 slots nailed down. Taking the bronze in truck sales is… no, not Toyota Tundra. It’s Dodge Ram. Their new model keeps the aggressive look but adds sophistication, if not subtlety. There’s enough chrome on [...]
Think back to high school. Remember that awkward looking classmate that came back from summer break an Abercrombie and Fitch model? That pretty much sums up the 2010 Hyundai Tucson. The outgoing version was virtually invisible, blending into traffic so successfully you’d swear it was penned by the team that dreamed up camouflage.

Americans began their love affair with SUVs back in the early 90s. Alas, a new romance often means someone’s being jilted. In this case it was Subaru. Sure they had plenty of all-wheel drive vehicles but in the way of sedans and station wagons. Buyers, as they say in the relationship scene, were just not [...]
