Who Needs a Reality Check, Tesla or Its Model 3 Buyers?  

While flying to Cape Canaveral, Florida, to oversee SpaceX business, Elon Musk did what any of us would do with a few hours of free time: He used Twitter to chat with his 7.94 million followers about the upcoming Tesla Model 3. As it turns out, when Elon Musk starts firing off replies on Twitter, […]

Has Any Automaker Improved Faster Than Hyundai?  

Spotting these two old friends in a parking lot over the weekend was a stark reminder of just how far Hyundai has come. On the left is a perfect example of what many of us picture when we picture a Hyundai. On the right is the truth of what Hyundai has become. Now that the South […]

Five Must-Have Accessories for Any Old Car  

Spending so much time in and around brand-new cars certainly comes with its perks. Nothing quite compares with being handed the keys to a new BMW M2 and shown the way to a private race track, and few car shoppers are invited to test the best winter vehicles side by side. From auto-show previews to […]

Will This Lawsuit Against Ford Boost Camaro Sales?  

Marketing can be a company’s best friend when done correctly, or it can incite anger and lawsuits if done wrong. Ford is learning the importance of truth-in-marketing as some customers are discovering that their Shelby GT350s aren’t holding up on the track quite as well as Ford promised. Before we go any further, it’s important […]

Bad News For Finance Company Means Good Deals on Used Cars  

Following financial news is about as invigorating as watching cantaloupe ripen, which is why the vast majority of us don’t include it as a regular past time. Financial developments, though, can have lasting impacts on our lives and affect the ease of which we buy houses, cars, and other items that typically require financing. Trends in […]

Because We Need Another 3-Row SUV: Here Comes the Subaru Ascent  

The list of the world’s ugliest cars gained a new member with the 2006 Subaru B9 Tribeca. Designed to inspire thoughts of the company’s aircraft heritage, the front-end of the B9 ended up looking, at best, awkward and quirky. At worst it’s the feature that kept buyers from driving the B9 Tribeca off the lot. […]

Chevy Bolt vs. Hyundai Ioniq: Which Has a Brighter Future?  

Flexibility is a benefit enjoyed often by small companies, but rarely by large ones. Like a small boat, businesses still in early stages can maneuver quickly; they can alter business plans, tweak messaging, and otherwise pivot without having to worry about re-orienting a large workforce or undermining the public's understanding of the brand. By contrast, […]

Lexus or Jaguar: Rakish Design Versus Subdued Elegance  

Allow me to take you back in time. Let’s go the early 1990s and stroll right on up to 2015 or so. I want us to take a look at luxury cars during our journey. Specifically, let’s focus on Jaguar and Lexus. Lexus was still new to America after being introduced in 1989 with the LS […]

Early Favorites: Which 2017 Will You Test Drive?  

Winter Storm Stella, microwave cameras, and St. Patrick dominated the news this week, but we're more interested in the 2017 model year and which new cars shoppers want to see themselves driving. We've published 37 Test Drive Reviews of 2017 vehicles so far, and we're going to take a look at those vehicles that have […]

Dealer Service Scores Improve, How’s Yours?  

I bought my first new car in 2003 from a Honda Dealer. The car, a straight-off-the-boat 2004 Honda Pilot, still had its plastic wrapping and something like two miles on the odometer. I loved the car, but buying it was a high-pressure affair. The Pilot was in-demand at the time and, at least according to […]

GM Downsizing! Which Cars Should Go?  

Sometimes downsizing is the most responsible way to rein in spending and guarantee a future of financial well-being. Getting a smaller house, selling those extra cars, and starting to spend a little bit less every month can have lasting positive effects on your life. Don’t worry, this hasn’t become a self-help or financial advice blog. […]

Volkswagen Says It’s ‘Back on Track,’ Would You Agree?  

A scandal the size of the one Volkswagen is coming out of would be enough to topple many automotive companies in existence today. With billions of dollars in fines, recall, and repair costs, in addition to criminal charges from the U.S. government, the company took a direct shot to the heart of its brand that left […]

The Safest Crossovers You Can Buy: Volvo Continues to Stride Toward Real Self-Driving Cars  

While they're far from obsolete, sedans are still old news. Today, crossovers are king; after the requisite Ford F-Series, Chevy Silverado, and Ram Pickups, the best-selling vehicle in America is the Nissan Rogue, dusting the Honda Civic by nearly 12,000 units through February 2017. There are plenty of reasons why Americans have become obsessed with […]

Your New MR2 Dreams Could Come True  

If I were to ask a hundred people what car they’d most like to see return as a new model, I bet at least half would mention one of the Toyota sports cars from the 1980s and 90s. Specifically, the Supra and MR2 routinely top lists of most-missed vehicles and are consistently the subject of […]

The Best 2014s on the Used-Car Market  

Let’s say you are one of the millions of Americans who are in the market for a used car. Given that you’re reading a car-shopping website's blog, that probably isn’t a huge stretch of the imagination. With 2014 models coming off lease, now is an excellent time to buy a used car that still has […]

Land Rover and Mazda Bring More Luxury to Midsize SUVs  

Let me guess: You drive a midsize SUV. I’m playing the odds on that one, because the midsize SUV just might be the most popular segment of vehicle on the market today. Family sedans, and their cargo-limiting trunk space, are quickly falling in popularity at the hands of the capacity, ride height, and AWD capability of […]

New or Used? The Choice Gets a Little More Clear  

Every car buyer will eventually face the dilemma of buying new or used. New car buyers get a strong warranty, the peace-of-mind of knowing no one else has driven the car, and, of course, that invigorating scent that only new cars offer. Used car buyers save some money and know they are getting a great […]

Volkswagen Arteon: The Next VW Nobody Buys?  

The Volkswagen Phaeton was the answer to a question nobody asked. It quietly debuted as the flagship VW sedan but came with the price of a well-equipped 7 Series. The Phaeton died an uneventful death after it became obvious that executive-level buyers prefer executive-level brands. Very few people wanted to spend upwards of $80,000 and stare […]

GM Heads Back to Basics—Sells Opel, Vauxhall to the French  

When quality standards appeared to slip for Subaru, we asked if perhaps the small but rapidly growing Japanese brand was threatening to “fly too close to the sun.” Since 2008, General Motors has continuously adjusted course to bring its business back to basics and avoid the allure of owning far-reaching—but ultimately unprofitable—brands. The latest departure […]

The Car That Costs Less Than a Smartphone  

Like just about everyone else in this country, I own a smartphone that costs me about a hundred bucks per month. I never would have thought someone could lease a car for less than the cost of my phone. In Southern California, some dealers have started to offer a $69 per month lease a new Fiat […]

The Best Luxury Cars Without the Luxury Badge  

When someone buys a luxury car, he or she is not just buying heated rear seats, autonomous driving capability, and an overly complicated infotainment system. The buyer is investing in a little thing called prestige. Prestige is what you get when you buy a high-end Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Lexus, Jaguar, or the like. Prestige is the […]

5 Essentials for the Perfect Spring Break Road Trip  

The snow has begun to melt, the sun is sticking around longer each day, and for thousands upon thousands of college students, the next few weeks will be some of the year's best. For many, Spring Break means precious days away from school and the opportunity to hit the road and get out of town. […]

What’s the Best Car Brand in America?  

Which car brand would you say is the best on the market today? The answer to that question will be as varied as car buyers themselves. Some people judge brand based on style while others make it all about reliability. The customer experience will surely rank high on anybody’s list of best car brands, while […]

Camaro Goes Hardcore With Upcoming Z/28 and ZL1 1LE  

Chevrolet is developing a series of engines that it hopes will challenge the elite BMW and Mercedes-Benz vehicles of the world. The new naturally aspirated motor will pump out up to 750-hp and feature specs on par with the Ferrari 458 Italia. Car and Driver says of the motor, These engines eventually will power the Camaros […]

Lyft Expands While Uber Reels  

Put aside Chance the Rapper's Grammy win and in-song references to the name-brand ride-hailing app, and the past 30 days haven’t been a great for Uber. This past month, the San Francisco-based tech giant suffered one publicist's worst nightmare after another, and its competitors are taking notice. While the company nearly synonymous with ride-hailing spends […]

Here Are the Slowest Depreciating Cars  

One of the biggest arguments against buying a new car is the fact that it becomes a used car as soon as you sign on the dotted line at the dealership. So, in essence, new car buyers pay for the right to be the first owner of a used car. That right comes at a […]

Dependable Drives: Ten 2014s Worth a Look  

As anyone who's shopped for a used car knows, cars retain value inconsistently. In this era of Big Data, armies of statisticians are gathering and analyzing all sorts of car numbers by maker, body style, price, location, model, and so on to see what we can learn. J.D. Power recently published its 2017 Vehicle Dependability […]

Ioniq Versus Prius: The Battle for MPG Superiority  

Maybe Toyota didn’t realize it at the time, but when it first debuted the Prius it also launched an entirely new segment of vehicles. While the Prius inspired competing automakers to get into the world of hybrids, the Toyota easily outsold them all and remained king for nearly two decades. The Prius, which debuted in […]

Lexus Tops Dependability List While Jaguar Rises and Acura Falls  

If you were to buy a car based on its reliability reputation alone, what would you get? Would you take home a Honda or Acura because of their legendary commitment to being problem-free? Would you purchase a Toyota because you know they routinely go 300,000 miles or more? Would you avoid Jaguar and Land Rover […]

UAW Wants You To Buy American, But What Exactly Does That Mean?  

The United Auto Workers Union desperately wants you to buy vehicles built with union labor in the United States of America. That should come as no surprise considering the union makes its money off of organized American workers. Some say the union model is an antiquated and obsolete way of building cars, but its pro-American […]

Re-Thinking the Oscars: 5 Films That Deserved to Win “Best Automobile”  

This Sunday, the 89th Academy Awards will honor the actors, actresses, directors, and other critical contributors to the films of the past year. The Oscars are all about rewarding the many artists responsible for the year's best movies—whether their craft be acting, direction, costume design, music, or any other facet of filmmaking. But, unfortunately, the […]

Headlight Replacement: Not What it Used to Be  

I wonder if you, dear readers, share this same frustration in car ownership. Back in the day, when a headlight in your car went out, you just went to your local parts store, bought a replacement headlight (not just a bulb, but the whole darn headlight), unscrewed the old one, screwed in the new one, […]

Back to the Well: When Automakers Reuse Brand Names  

Inspiration often comes from within. For automakers, it can even come from within their own model lineups. Mitsubishi recently announced the unveiling of an all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse…crossover. That's right, Mitsubishi isn't resurrecting the Eclipse you knew and loved from the '90s, but rather attaching the brand to the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, a compact crossover aimed […]

The Last of its Kind: Ferrari 812 Superfast  

We try to keep things attainable on this blog. We don’t spend a lot of time in the world of supercars because so few people ever get the pleasure of driving one home. Sometimes, though, we just can’t resist. Supercars hold a tempting lure over any car aficionado because they are the epitome of automotive technology. […]

Automakers Want a Review of Fuel Economy Rules  

Automakers aren’t interested in building cars with exceptional fuel economy. That’s despite a 2011 announcement by the Obama administration that requires automakers to raise fuel efficiency standards to a fleet average of 54.5 miles per gallon. According to the former administration, that would save motorists $1.7 trillion in fuel costs over the life of the vehicles, […]

Mitsubishi Will Bring Back the Eclipse… In Name Only  

If you were a teenager in the 1990s, there’s a good chance you wanted to own a Mitsubishi Eclipse. More than likely it’s the Eclipse Spyder that caught your eye and teased you with thoughts of sun-soaked road trips and the admiration of all your friends. “One day,” you thought in 1995, “I’ll own one […]

What to Look For in a Winter Vehicle  

Winter may have taken its sweet time arriving in the Northeast, but after this past weekend, our city of Boston is a certifiable wonderland.

About 25 Percent of Cars on the Road Need Recall Repairs, Will You Buy One?  

Buying a used car can be a little like playing Russian Roulette these days. Even though modern cars are as safe as automobiles have ever been, about one in four cars on the road have open recalls on them. That translates to over 63 million cars in the United States that have been recalled but never […]

Chevy Announces Price for Raptor-Like Colorado ZR2  

When I first saw the press release announcing a starting price of $40,995 for a new trim of the Chevy Colorado, I thought, “Well here we go, we’ve entered the era where a $40,000 midsize truck is normal.” Prices for the Toyota Tacoma can eclipse the $40K mark and the addition of the Colorado just […]

The State of Electric Vehicles: Is It Time to Buy?  

Tesla launched its Roadster a few years earlier, but for all intents and purposes, the United States' age of electric vehicles (EVs) began with the Nissan Leaf in 2011. The market for electric vehicles has come a long way in 10 years, and now shoppers can buy an EV from any number of companies, from […]

Why GM Might Not Want to Sell You a Malibu  

Maybe the people at General Motors aren’t used to selling a lot Malibus. For as long as I can remember, cars like the Malibu and Impala existed just to provide an option for the very few people who wanted a sedan but simply had to have a Chevy. GM’s bread-and-butter vehicles have always been its full-size […]

Will New Car Prices Increase by $17,000?  

Recently we wrote about the growing popularity of British cars in the United States. Jaguar and Land Rover especially are seeing growth as the company produces high quality cars and SUVs for a hungry American public. How long would that hunger last, though, if costs of British luxury increased by about $17,000 per vehicle? That […]

Alfa Romeo Returns: Tom Brady Wasn’t the Only One With a Comeback This Year  

Whether you're following computers with iPods or strip-sacks with touchdown passes, comebacks are never easy.

2018 Mustang Revealed, Bullitt Edition a Possibility  

Almost 50 years ago a Mustang GT and a Dodge Charger R/T sped through the streets of San Francisco in an epic high-speed chase. It happened in a movie, of course, and remains one of the most exciting and influential chase scenes in cinema history. The movie, “Bullitt,” came out in 1968 which means the […]

Reimagined Classics: What Do You Dream of Driving?  

We know most of you like classic sports cars, but we had no idea exactly how deep your enthusiasm ran until we saw the reaction to Wednesday's post on the possibility of a midengine Corvette.

You don’t need to wait for Sunday to see the best part of the Super Bowl.

Will a New Corvette Appeal to Younger Buyers?  

Chevrolet has a problem with the Corvette. Despite efforts to appeal to a younger audience with the sleek C7 Stingray, the Corvette remains an old man’s car. The average ‘Vette buyer is a 59-year-old male, but Chevrolet would love to start sending Corvettes home with guys and gals a decade or two younger. Certainly the […]

The Dodge Challenger GT: More Than Meets the Eye?  

Few modern car designs manage to convey their heritage as well as the Dodge Challenger. Granted, from “Vanishing Point” to “Archer,” not many cars are endowed with the Challenger's legacy. Even still, the Toyota Corolla might be turning 50 this year, but I doubt many of us would recognize the similarities between one today and […]

Back at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Ford surprised the automotive world with the debut of a brand new Ford GT supercar.

Trump’s Tariff: The Ford Focus Isn’t the Only Car Made in Mexico  

President Trump has been in office for over a week now, and his efforts to motivate automakers to manufacture vehicles in the U.S. have so far been met with controversy and mixed results. There’s been a substantial amount of press over Ford's decision to cancel a $1.6 billion assembly plant in Mexico, while still moving […]

America’s Car of Choice: British?  

British cars were once known in the United States as being luxurious but notoriously unreliable. Think about the 1990s era Jaguars, any Land Rover sold before 2008, and the exceptional cost of maintaining Aston Martins. Sales were limited to people who were willing to deal with electrical gremlins and frequent repair visits in exchange for […]

Are You Less Safe in a Hybrid Car?  

I’ve heard from more car shoppers than I count over the years asking for advice on purchasing a new car. Yesterday a question was asked that no one had previously brought up to me. The shopper is in the market for a new 2017 hybrid or plug-in hybrid SUV. She drives a lot, lives in an […]

You Might Buy Your Next Car at Walmart  

One of the many services that has made Costco famous is its car buying program.

Risky Business: GMC Debuts New Gear-Shifting System  

Every year, new "must-have" features seem to appear in cars.

Sometimes, however, little tweaks can result in fiery backlash, and this has rarely been more evident than with the […]

Should the U.S. Have an All-Female Ride-Sharing Service?  

The night this happened, my brother had spent an evening with friends bar-hopping and enjoying the nightlife downtown.

Think back five years. The year was 2012. It wasn’t that long ago, but in terms of advancements in the auto industry, it was an eternity. After doing a quick Google search for “car trends 2012,” I found a quaint little article from January of that year in the USA Today with the headline “Five […]

Apple Faces Lawsuit for not Preventing Texting and Driving

The Trump Effect: Will More Car Production Stay in America?  

For all the controversy President-elect Trump has created, his impending presidency seems to be having at least one immediate effect: Car production is staying in the United States.

Ford and Toyota Partner to Keep Apple, Google at Bay  

One of the most compelling reasons not to buy a new Toyota is the stark absence of either Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

Volkswagen Debuts New Microbus Concept… Again  

“Volkswagen is making a new Microbus!” My wife excitedly read the headline out loud over the weekend, to which I replied, “Yeah, they’ve been saying that for the last decade or so.

Last night kicked off the 2017 New England International Auto Show, held right here in Boston, Massachusetts.

Volkswagen Pleads Guilty, FCA Accused of Cheating  

A short time ago, Volkswagen executives in Germany were warned about travel to the United States. Doing so could result in arrest for criminal charges stemming from the company’s massive defrauding of the U.S. government.

Family transportation all started with the station wagon. Anyone here remember riding in the “way back” seats of a Ford Granada or Country Squire wagon?

Can the Kia Stinger Help Turn Around a Struggling Sedan Market?  

Here’s a car that could feel right at home among American muscle. Picture the Charger, ‘Cuda, Chevelle, Firebird, Road Runner, and Super Bee, then put the Stinger next to them. What’s the Stinger, you ask? It’s not a long-lost American muscle car, though the name suggests it could be. The Stinger is a new rear-wheel drive […]

The 2017 North American International Auto Show: An Odyssey Worth Traversing  

When the 2017 Pacifica was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last year, Chrysler restarted its minivan team's engine and started down the road toward family-moving domination. The advanced dual-monitor rear-seat entertainment system. The built-in Ridgid vacuum cleaner. The hybrid drivetrain. With the Dodge Caravan crumbling, the Pacifica managed to surge […]

Coming Soon: A Hybrid Mustang (With V8 Power)  

People get all bent out of shape when reading about their beloved Mustang going hybrid. “I need my V8,” they say. “A Mustang can’t be electric,” they say. Part of the reason for the anti-hybrid sentiment is the legacy of the Prius. The slow, emotionless Toyota has branded hybrids as unexciting and something for the […]

How’d It Do That? Tesla Predicts Crash  

Self-driving software has been highly scrutinized over the last few months because of a few high profile accidents and at least one fatality.

Nissan Rogue Star Wars Edition Isn’t so Hot  

Do you remember the Chevy Venture Warner Bros. edition? You’d be forgiven if not. The special edition lasted from 2000-2003 and was produced in limited quantities.

Even though its factory is still just a patch of Nevada desert, Faraday Future has finally unveiled its first production vehicle, the flagship FF 91. So far, the reception isn’t good.

How To Get Your Car Unstuck  

Snoqualmie Pass in Western Washington is a place notorious for winter snowfall. Here, deep in the Cascade Mountains, snow is measured in tens-of-feet, not inches, and can pile up to treacherous levels in just a matter of hours.

The World Wants Cars to Talk, But Can’t Agree on a Language  

The U.S. Department of Transportation thinks cars should learn to talk to each other before they can drive themselves. Earlier this month it issued a proposed rule announcement requiring vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication technology in all light-duty vehicles sold in the U.S. to allow the development of collision-avoidance applications that could prevent hundreds of thousands of […]

Can Sinking Hyundai Right the Ship?  

An automaker can’t survive without crossovers. All of the major car companies that operate in the United States have a wide assortment of crossovers and SUVs available to consumers. Some, like FCA, are even dropping slow-selling sedans in favor of increased SUV, truck, and crossover production. Others, such as General Motors, offer heavy incentives on […]

Newsflash: Electric Cars Are Here!  

A lot of people don’t realize this, but it’s possible, right now, to head to a local dealer and drive home in an electric car. You, being an informed and educated car guru, are likely well aware of this. Up to 60 percent of the American public, however, don’t realize that plug-in electric cars are a […]

Toyota Corolla Could Gain a BMW Heart  

Let’s think of ways the Toyota Corolla could be made more exciting. The compact sedan is one of the most reliable and practical little cars money can buy, but it’s also one of the least exciting. The Corolla lacks performance and handles about as well as a dishwasher around corners, but people buy it because […]

Don’t Be One of the Million Motorists Stranded this Holiday Season!  

Years ago, my good friend, Tim, mistakenly locked the keys to his 1991 Audi 200 in the trunk while we were on our way back to Connecticut after a weekend of skiing. During the dead of night, with snow on the ground and our only sustenance coming from the assorted snacks picked up at a […]

And the Least Satisfying Car in America Is…  

One of the strongest pieces of advice my dad ever gave me is to never, ever, buy a Chrysler. I was just a child when he told me, but the advice has stuck. His dissatisfaction with Chrysler began with the new Le Baron he bought in the 1980s, which was bad enough to skew his […]

The 5 (or 6) Engines We’d Put on Wards 10 Best List

Buy a Bolt and Fund a Tahoe?  

What if the fledgling electric car industry was just a ruse to sell more earth-polluting fossil fuel-powered trucks and SUVs? The federal government’s fleet fuel economy requirements and the California Air Resources Board’s ZEV credits aren’t just creating a small market for EVs, but are fueling the fire for gas-powered vehicles that defeat the purpose […]

GM to Halt Car Production, Including Camaro and Corvette  

General Motors has a problem with crossovers. The high-riding family friendly vehicles have effectively kicked their sedan brethren out of production. Quite literally, in fact, as GM plans to shutter five U.S. assembly plants next month to help ease a supply problem at dealers. With crossovers high on the wish-list of U.S. consumers,  sedans, and […]

2018 Honda Odyssey Teased… and it’s Remarkable  

Honda just gave us one of the coolest automotive teasers we’ve ever seen for the upcoming 2018 Odyssey.

They Forgot the V8s: Wards Announces 10 Best Engines for 2017  

For the past 23 years, WardsAuto has published a list of the 10 best engines available for the upcoming model year.

When Used Cars Come With Extra Surprises  

This is a true story: A friend had purchased a new-to-her Honda CR-V. She was instantly in love with the car, a spotless low-mileage white 2006 model. After a few days of driving, however, she started to notice a peculiar smell. The odor worsened over the coming days until it became so offensive in the […]

Gifts for Gearheads  

Car commercials have a very specific flavor during the holiday season. They range from humorous to overly sentimental, but they often involve the advertised car sitting in someone's driveway with a comically large, red, tightly wrapped bow on the hood or roof. It's the universal symbol for "This car will be on sale this holiday […]

Will Car Brands Survive the Age of Autonomy?  

When flying on an airplane, travelers generally don’t care if the maker of the plane is Boeing or Airbus, but do care if the carrier is United or Southwest. Apply that thinking to the world of cars as autonomy sets in over the next decade or so and perhaps it won’t matter if the maker […]

Mazda: The Car to Drive or the Car to Own?  

Think back to 2002, when the all-new 2003 Mazda6 came onto the market and redefined what a sport sedan could be for families. I still remember the first one in my neighborhood. It was bright red, sleek, and looked nothing like the Accord sedans and Dodge minivans that littered the suburban area. The driver would […]

Costco’s Christmas Corvette: A Good Deal?  

If you’ve ever dreamt of a Corvette under the tree with a giant red bow on top, Costco may be your best bet for making it happen. The discount membership club has long offered an auto program through which members can get pre-negotiated deals on cars, but this winter, for the first time, the deal […]

When It Makes Sense to Drive Instead of Fly  

The holidays bring many things: festive decorations, various holiday foods, crackling fireplaces, and general merriment and cheer. Oh, and travel. Lots and lots of travel. Looking at expensive plane tickets during this time of year, it's pretty clear the air-travel industry is aware of this, and who are they to pass up the chance to […]

What’s Your Most Trusted Car?  

There were a few brief moments yesterday afternoon when I wondered if today’s blog post would get written or if I’d spend the night huddled in a dark, frozen, and snowy forest. Three hours earlier, we loaded our Subaru with snowshoeing equipment and drove up to the base of our local mountain. My wife and […]

2017 Trucks: Getting Better All the Time  

Remember when American pickups had a single bench seat and vinyl upholstery? When trucks were built to cart heavy stuff, in the bed or on a trailer, and didn't need to do much more than that? The explosion of the crossover category proves shoppers want cars that deliver more practicality than your average sedan, and […]

Alfa Romeo Brings Italian Style, Craftmanship, to U.S. Buyers  

Get ready, because there are a lot of words coming your way that you’ll probably have no idea how to pronounce. Alfa and Romeo don’t present much of a problem, but some you might stumble on include Giulia, Internazionale, and Quadrifoglio. We’re talking, of course, about Alfa Romeo’s new lineup of the Giulia midsize sedan, […]

Let the Bronco Versus Blazer Debate Begin!  

I think we’re all used to the fact that Ford will bring back the Bronco. We’re excited about it, no doubt, but the information isn’t new anymore. The return of the Ranger will happen at the same time, probably in 2020, and both new trucks will be built right here in the United States of […]

The 2018 Regal: Hottest Buick Ever?  

  When was the last time you heard the words, “Whoa, that Buick is hot!” The answer is probably never, because those words are rarely assembled together in an English sentence. That’s likely to change as Buick continues to build cars that look nothing like the Buicks of the past. Truth be told, though, Buick design […]

Paris Joins Three Major Cities to Ban Diesel by 2025  

At the C40 meeting in Mexico City last week, Paris's mayor, Anne Hidalgo, met with the mayors of Mexico City, Madrid, and Athens, where they agreed to ban diesel cars and trucks from their cities by the year 2025.

Hey Off-Roaders, Don’t Jump Your Raptors  

Owning a Porsche doesn’t make you an expert on the track. You can buy the top-end 911, take it the Nurburgring or Laguna Seca, step on the gas, and end up with one very expensive repair bill. Driving a performance vehicle at its full potential requires a level of skill that the average driver doesn’t […]

Electric Cars: Thriving in an Artificial Market?  

Are electric cars being force-fed to an unwilling American public? Through the first 11 months of 2016, Americans have purchased about 130,000 electric vehicles. That sounds pretty impressive, until you compare that to the nearly 16 million cars sold in the U.S. so far this year. While it feels like electric cars are gaining traction […]

Looking for the Best Deals of the Year? Get Shopping!  

Now is the best time to buy a car! That’s a marketing phrase that, oddly enough, car dealers tend to use throughout the year. It seems like it gets blasted over TV and radio waves on a daily basis. From a car dealer’s perspective, the best time to buy a car is always today. Consumers, though, […]
