Can Hydrogen Surpass Electricity As the Fuel of the Future?  

Electric cars are quickly becoming the mainstream choice for alternative fuels. As has been well-discussed here over the last few months, cities, countries, and automakers are committing to the elimination of gas-powered cars and the adoption of electric ones. Toyota was among the first to introduce electricity to the masses with the hybrid Prius, but […]

Will Ram Change Everything, Again?  

In 1994, the Dodge Ram changed everything. Advertising for the new generation of early ’90s pickups took America by the storm, as the newest Dodge and its sleek, curvy looks captured the most macho of hearts. People compared the front end to a semi truck, and the look transformed Ram pickups forever while elevating their […]

BMW May Move MINI Production to China  

A British legend was born in 1959. No, we’re not referring to the great Tracey Ullman, but another icon that has become deeply rooted in British culture and is known around the world: The MINI. The economy car, originally produced by the British Motor Corporation, was voted the second most influential vehicle of the 20th […]

You Can Now Subscribe to Porsche, But Should You?  

If you can’t afford a Porsche, you probably can’t afford Porsche’s new subscription program, either. The idea behind Porsche Passport, which launches in Atlanta next month, is to provide subscribers with any model of Porsche they wish at any time they wish. It’s a compelling idea, but the privilege won’t come cheap. Car subscription models are […]

Tesla Model 3 Delays Could Lead Buyers to Other Automakers  

Freezing air has descended upon my city. Those leisurely mornings of heading out to the car in shorts and a T-shirt have been replaced by scraping windshields free of frost. I love my electric Nissan Leaf, because I can start and warm it up using an app on my phone while I stay toasty warm […]

Will Gen Y Kill Classic Cars?  

Values of classic cars have steadily increased over the last few decades, and proud owners of old GTOs, Mustangs, Jaguars, Porsches, and more have reaped the benefits of maintaining and restoring older cars. Porsche owners, for example, have seen values skyrocket, particularly on their pre-1999 911s. Classic cars at auction continue to sell well and […]

GM Latest to Commit to an All-Electric Future  

Automakers keep treading farther down the path of electric propulsion. In fact, General Motors may have just put the stake in the heart of fossil fuels by becoming the latest, and largest, automaker to announce an all-electric future. Have we reached the point of no turning back? When Volvo announced its all-electric future, the response […]

Toyota Planning to Refresh Entire Truck Line  

Think about this for a second: If you buy a 2018 Toyota Sequoia, you’re basically getting a 2008 Sequoia with some cosmetic changes. This is one of those crazy-but-true factoids about buying a new car. While you’re getting a vehicle with zero miles and a fresh warranty, the design of the bits and pieces that […]

Has Hyundai Built the First True 3 Series Killer?  

Everyone wants a piece of the BMW 3 Series. The legendary car has been in the U.S. since the 1970s, but reached its pinnacle in the 1990s, which has propelled the car all way into the 21st century with little competition to worry about. Notice that I didn’t say with little competition. I said, “little […]

Ford Ushers in the Era of the $100,000 Pickup  

Ford has a history of being a trendsetter in many ways, but the newest precedents being set by the Michigan automaker don’t bode well for buyers of economical pickups and SUVs. We already know that the Ford Expedition can approach $80,000 when properly configured. Trucks are set to go even higher. Sure, we’ll always be […]

Toyota Ups Performance with Gazoo  

If you needed a car for reliable transportation and practical usability, and you didn’t care much for driving dynamics or performance, which brand would you choose? One of the first to come to mind might be Toyota. The automaker’s reputation for quality and reliability is legendary. Its design, however, has leaned toward the bland, while […]

The Bugatti Chiron Breaks Its First Record  

Zero to 249 miles per hour. I don’t know that any of us can really imagine what that’s like. Accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds is an exhilarating rush, but I don’t think there’s anyone reading this right now who can understand what it feels like to top 200 in […]

Lincoln and Mazda Next Up to Electrify Everything  

Here’s another one to file in the “all cars are going electric” folder. In the not-so-distant future, we’ll look back on that folder and fondly remember the steps automakers took to wean the driving public away from gas and ease them into the new world of electric driving. We’ve written, pretty extensively, about upcoming new […]

One-Inch Crack Totals 2017 Chevy Corvette  

In 2005 I had a 6-month-old Honda Pilot. That vehicle was parked overnight in a driveway next to a large RV, and the RV caught fire. The RV burned to a crisp, leaving nothing but a blackened frame and a smoking pile of debris. The Pilot, which was parked not 12 inches from the RV, […]

Will the Tesla Model 3 Kill Off the BMW 3 Series?  

Tesla has very high hopes for its midsize Model 3 sedan. It doesn’t just hope to survive and sell enough copies to make the investment worth it—the electric carmaker plans to revolutionize the auto business by selling a hundred thousand or so every year. That’s a lofty goal. All of those sales would have to […]

Ford Raptor Not Macho Enough? Try the Shelby Edition  

The Ford F-150 Raptor is about as extreme as trucks get. Built for flying across sand, traversing dunes, and descending hillsides like a mountain goat, the Raptor is one of very few trucks that can compete in the Baja 1000, then drive home like it made a leisurely trip visiting the in-laws. The truck comes […]

China’s Big Decision Would Impact U.S. Auto Strategy  

This is big. For a few months now, we’ve been following stories of certain countries playing with the idea of banning the use of gasoline and diesel vehicles. India, France, Britain, Norway, and Germany have floated plans to do away with the sales of new vehicles powered by fossil fuels. France and Britain plan to […]

When’s the Last Time a Car Took Your Breath Away?  

Some cars just take your breath away at first glance. Sometimes because they’re expensive supercars, sometimes because they’re rare and beautiful luxury cars, and sometimes because they’re old classics that stand out in a Walmart parking lot full of crossovers. The last time a car left me in a state of awe was in Deland, […]

2018 Nissan Leaf Debut: Yay or Yawn?  

Nissan has been teasing its new electric Leaf for months. The sleek teaser images suggest a racy shape and a whole new Leaf experience. It also came with the preconceived notion that it would come with a range on par with the Chevy Bolt and Tesla Model 3. Nissan never made specific mention of that, […]

Should This Safety System Be Turned Off While Driving?  

Like about half of all drivers, I turned off an important, though irritating, safety feature in my car this weekend. The incessant beeping of the lane-departure warning system routinely woke up my sleeping family as I drove home from a downtown event on Sunday. The shrill, fast series of beeps emanating from my Subaru is […]

The Best Used Deals Are Electric  

We all want a good value when buying a used car. Who doesn’t love picking up a five-year-old low-mileage car for 60 percent less than what the car cost new? Getting a great used car deal is the holy grail of car shopping for many value-oriented shoppers. My best experience was scoring an almost half-price […]

How Much Do You Love Kia’s Design Right Now?  

My disdain for their logo aside, Kia’s design has evolved into one of the most head-turning and appealing shapes on the road today. How many times per day does a Kia make you do a double-take? There’s the strong and sporty stance of the upcoming Stinger, the grand K900, the stout and strong Sorento, and just […]

Which of These 2018 Cars Would You Call “Sexy”?  

The English language includes many words that mean different things to different people. Just last week we published Test Drive Reviews of two very different 2018 cars that have each been called “sexy”: the debuting Audi A5 Sportback and the re-designed Toyota Camry. We think both cars have significant strengths, but we also think they’re […]

Volkswagen Caters to Modern-Day Hippies with ID Buzz  

It’s finally happening. Some 60 years after the Volkswagen Microbus became a symbol of peace, love, and happiness in the United States, a new version will land on dealer floors aimed at the modern, and somewhat affluent, hippie. The ID Buzz has been a concept floating around the blog-o-sphere for at least six months, and […]

Chevy Blazer: The Legend (Sort of) Returns  

We all know that the Ford Bronco is coming back, probably as the rugged off-roader that we all hoped it would be. That’s certainly good news for the hardcore Bronco fanbase but a little off-putting to the people who prefer their off-roaders to wear a bow tie. Chevy’s Bronco-buster, the Blazer, slowly morphed into the […]

Which FCA Brand Does China Want Most?  

Last week we brought you news that FCA, the company born out of the Fiat/Chrysler merger, may be sold to a Chinese automaker. That would turn the once-iconic American Chrysler brand into a wholly foreign-owned corporation while giving a Chinese automaker entry into the coveted American car market. This is a sale that could actually […]

Hey, Where’s the Spare?  

Have you ever had one of those mornings that can only mean a great afternoon is on the way? You know the type of morning: You get out of bed a little late, which makes you leave for work a few minutes late, but as you’re backing out of the driveway, you notice a flat […]

Autonomous Car Progress: Approaching Level 5  

I thought adaptive cruise control was the coolest thing ever. Simply set the cruise to 70 miles per hour, and the car does the rest, even slowing down to match traffic when speeds drop. I first experienced adaptive cruise control in 2014, and now, just three years later, we have automakers talking about “level 5” […]

Mazda’s New Gas Engine Runs Like a Diesel  

Has Mazda invented an all-new engine that can revolutionize the world of automobiles? No, but it might be on the verge of perfecting one. There are a few articles making their way around the Internet that claim the Japanese automaker has created a gasoline engine that works like a diesel engine. The motor ignites gasoline […]

Fiat Chrysler Could Be Sold to a Chinese Automaker  

Chinese-owned Chrysler. Those are words you might need to get used to hearing, as the possibility of a sale of Chrysler’s parent to a Chinese automaker has become very real. Sergio Marchionne, CEO of FCA, has made it clear he’s looking to partner with another automaker. General Motors and Ford have both denied him, and […]

Will New Lineup Return Cadillac to Glory?  

Cadillac currently offers four sedans, and it’s getting ready to axe three of them. By 2019, the Cadillac ATS, CTS, and XTS will be history, leaving just the CT6 and two new replacements to handle sedan duty at Caddy dealerships. Not surprisingly, Cadillac is joining the masses in whittling down its sedan offerings to make […]

Alfa Romeo Outsells Volvo and Jaguar  

Coeur d’ Alene is a small sleepy city in north Idaho with a population of about 50,000 people. It’s nestled between mountains and a large alpine lake and serves as a summer playground for boating enthusiasts and a winter wonderland for ski bunnies. Its downtown is lined with mom-and-pop shops and locally owned restaurants. Not […]

Hyundai Ready to Let Genesis Fly  

The Genesis car brand has grown up quickly. Not long ago it was nothing more than a speck in the eye of its parent, Hyundai. Its early childhood was spent as the top model in the Hyundai range, then it grew into the new role of becoming its own brand while safely still living under […]

Toyota Turns to Mazda for Help with Tacoma  

The Toyota Tacoma is losing market share to the Chevy Colorado and Honda Ridgeline. This isn’t happening because people are losing interest in the venerable Toyota, but because Toyota can’t build them fast enough. There’s a shortage of Tacomas at dealerships around the country, and buyers are turning to some very worthy competition instead of […]

Gas Prices Rise as Car Prices Fall  

Maybe you’ve noticed, but gas prices are going up again. That’s bad news for drivers, automakers, and car dealers, but could be good for people in the market for a new car. Low prices over the last couple of years have driven sales of trucks and SUVs while stifling sales of sedans and compact cars. […]

Nissan: The World’s Largest Automaker!  

Over the last couple of years, General Motors, Volkswagen, and Toyota have vied for the title of World’s Largest Automaker. Last year, VW took the title by selling more cars globally than any other automaker and proudly wore the crown as the largest carmaker on the planet. For the first half of this year, Nissan […]

2018 Mustang GT Gets Scary Fast Acceleration  

Zero-to-60 in less than 4 seconds used to be the realm of the most elite supercars. Today, though, the Ferrari LaFerrari can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.4 seconds. Other supercars from Lamborghini, Bugatti, and Porsche have done it in 2.5 seconds. While not comparable to street-legal vehicles, Top Fuel […]

Does New Distracted Driving Law Go Too Far?  

Drinking while driving is rightfully forbidden. Texting while driving is equally dangerous and against the law nearly everywhere. But how far should a state go in regulating what a driver may legally do behind the wheel? The state of Washington is testing those limits and has banned some pretty shocking activities while driving, and its […]

Tesla: The World’s Most Popular Automaker?  

We can’t seem to escape news about Tesla lately. The company is dominating headlines on auto blogs and news websites across the Internet. If the story isn’t about a new innovation, idea, or product from Tesla, it’s about another car company trying to beat Tesla at its own game. Never, in my lifetime at least, […]

Buick Regal GS: Handsome, Strong, and Fast  

I’m going to try to avoid mentioning grandparents in this post, because the days of Buicks coming with AARP cards are officially gone. It’s taken a while to get to this point, though. In fact, the words “performance,” “sporty,” and “Buick,” were last used together 30 years ago when the Grand National GNX was intimidating […]

Could This Become the New Ford Bronco?  

If you’ve never heard of the Troller T4, it might be time for you to copy and paste that name into a Google search and then marvel at the images staring back at you. The Troller is a boxy off-roader sold in Brazil and built by a company now owned by Ford. For fans of […]

Accord Drops V6 in Favor of 4-Cylinder Turbo  

The Honda Accord V6 was one of those cars that American families once loved for its comfort, reliability, responsiveness, and speed. It was a stalwart in the Accord lineup and the go-to choice for power-hungry parents. You might have noticed the past tense I used just now. Over the last couple of years, people stopped buying […]

The End of an Era: Viper Ending Production  

In 1998 a friend purchased a used 1994 Dodge Viper. I’d never seen a Viper in person, and the car took my breath away. Its glistening red paint and exotic curves were unlike anything I’d seen on a car before. I got more than my fair share of seat time in that car and am […]

Honda Ridgeline: The Best Midsize Pickup?  

Don’t say you saw this coming: The Honda Ridgeline is making a name for itself as a competitive midsize pickup. In fact, it’s creating a new niche of buyers who want the handling, ride, and everyday drivability of a sedan with the ability to haul loads of stuff every now and then. The Chevy Colorado […]

Should the United States Go Gas-Free?  

Like it or not, we are moving toward a future of gas-free automobiles. We discuss the topic often, but two recent developments suggest that the end of the fossil-fuel era could happen sooner than we once thought. Volvo now plans for all of its vehicles to be either electric or hybrid starting in 2019, and […]

New Teslas Could Last 1,000,000 Miles  

We’ve all known people who sell their cars before they turn past 100,000 miles. That was probably a wise move back in the 1980s, but today’s vehicles can live well past that mark, even doubling or tripling it with proper care. Diesel engines can go even farther, routinely cruising past 500,000 miles. The longevity of […]

The Best Vehicle for a Summer Family Road Trip?  

The open roads of America are hard to ignore this time of year. Millions of people heed their call and embark on trips throughout this grand country. Whether you’re the kind of road-tripper who lackadaisically putts down quiet 2-lane roads in search of lost American culture or blasts through states at 75 mph on the nation’s […]

Fog Lights: The Latest in Obsolete Car Tech  

Fog is a known killer on highways around the world, but a popular accessory to battle the soupy stuff is starting to fade away from today’s vehicles. The New York Times says, Fog was a factor in nearly 20 percent of deadly multicar pileups involving 10 or more vehicles. Fog is especially prevalent in some […]

Boston to Nashville: A Cheap Car Challenge Results in a Bargain Mazda RX-7  

When people shop for cars, they typically stay local. But a new CarGurus study revealed that expanding your search to other metro areas can yield substantial savings. Buying a Ford Mustang in Miami, FL, rather than Albany, NY, could save you close to $2,000. Picking up a BMW 3 Series in Albuquerque, NM, instead of […]

The Car You Wish You Never Sold  

Everyone has one. For my dad it was a 1967 Mercury Cougar. My wife’s was a 1974 Porsche 911 Sportomatic. Personally, I just let go of a 2002 911 Targa in favor of a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab, which has a little more towing capacity and room for the family. Will I regret […]

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Coming for the Millennials  

Any luxury automaker that doesn't have a premium compact on the market is missing out on a huge, and potentially imperative, market. No longer are BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi in the business of selling only large luxury vehicles to well-off Boomers. The market has shifted in favor of millennials, and with that change comes the […]

Dodge Demon Danger: Can’t Buy It Without a Waiver  

There aren’t many cars that require the buyer to sign a waiver before driving it off the lot. In fact, there might be only one. The Dodge Demon, which is actually a Challenger in SRT Demon dress, might look close enough to a standard-issue Challenger to fool the non-initiated, but make no mistake, the Demon […]

Regular Cars That Cost as Much as Luxury Cars  

Barring the stratospheric price of the Ford GT, the Blue Oval isn’t exactly known for high-priced luxury. That could be about to change, as an $80,000 Ford family hauler is now a reality. Cars that cost upward of $60,000 and approach $80,000 used to be the realm of ultimate luxury and performance. We’re talking top-end […]

Honda Civic Type R Priced, Proves Demand for Performance  

Dire predictions of an entire generation having zero emotion toward cars have fueled predictions of an unprecedented “buyers strike” in America. That’s probably not going to happen. A love, and a need, for cars will continue to dominate the landscape, even as younger folks grow into mature, car-buying adults. I reference the ferocious new Honda Civic […]

Tesla Remains Perfect, Audi Hopes to Follow Its Lead  

Safety is quickly becoming a trademark quality for Tesla. The California-based electric carmaker builds the Model S sedan, which achieved the best safety rating of any car ever tested back in 2013. Now it can lay claim to something else no other automaker has ever been able to accomplish: a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration […]

Should You Be Worried About Replacing a Used EV’s Batteries?  

One of the benefits of owning an electric car is not needing to buy gasoline. The cost savings add up year after year, even when you include the cost of electrons to recharge the batteries. Two of the biggest concerns since the advent of hybrid and EV technology are electric range and potential cost of replacing battery […]

Will Subaru Become the Next Toyota?  

Last week a friend on Facebook shared a post from Toyota that compared the new 86 sports car to the classic 2000GT. The comparison inspired a heated conversation, with most people arguing that the 86 is a cheap RWD sports car designed for proper weight distribution and mass production, while the classic 2000GT is an ultra-rare […]

Will President Trump Block German Car Sales?  

BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi are symbols of success and prestige. Owning one is a goal more people are realizing, as BMW sold more than 2.3 million cars last year. Mercedes-Benz was just behind at about 2.2 million, while Audi unloaded some 1.8 million vehicles. BMW builds its SUVs right here in the States, and Mercedes-Benz has […]

Ram Readying for a Come-from-Behind Sales Victory  

I grew up with a staunch adversity to Chrysler products. It stemmed from my dad, who had a bad experience with a Chrysler Le Baron. And by "bad experience," I mean an engine blowout before the 60,000-mile mark. Since that day, mentioning Chrysler in conversation was akin to discussing poor bathing habits or certain political parties. […]

How to Travel for a Great Deal on Your Next Car  

Would you drive 500 miles if someone paid you $2,000?

Your Next BMW: Built in China?  

If Chinese quality has become good enough for Buick, Volvo, and BMW, there’s a good chance it’s good enough for you. Cars made in China have long been associated with questionable reliability, gaps in body panels, and sub-standard safety features. Those days may be behind us, however, as foreign automakers continue to invest in Chinese […]

Clearing the Air: TDI Aside, VW Still Builds Great Cars  

Years ago, a good friend was in the market for a car, and despite trying my best to sell her on a Honda Fit, she was smitten with one particular Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen, which she'd eventually buy and name Gretta. As much as I tried to sway her to the little Honda (It's great in […]

Ascent and Atlas: The New Breed of 3-Row SUVs  

But does it have a third row? It’s a question that’s inevitable when families shop for an SUV.

Three-row vehicles include the Ford Explorer, Dodge Durango, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, […]

Dodge Demon Pricing Revealed: $85K and $1 Options  

Official pricing for the most maniacal and unhinged production car ever built has officially been released. Starting MSRP of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, more commonly referred to simply as the Dodge Demon, is $84,995. Add a horsepower boost from 808 to 840, and the price jumps to $84,996. Yes, in perhaps the best cost-to-horsepower-ratio on the […]

Wrangler Pickup Will Challenge Conventional Compacts  

The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most desired off-road machines ever built and has retained its iconic shape for decades. The long-rumored and highly anticipated truck version would likely keep the Wrangler’s design cues but sacrifice some of its ability to crawl over boulder-strewn trails. What the truck would lose in off-road prowess, though, it […]

Camaro versus Mustang. It’s a rivalry on the same level as Bears versus Lions, Yankees versus Red Sox, and Chicago versus New York pizza.

The One Thing Diesels Are Still Good For  

It’s now impossible to talk about diesel engines without mentioning Volkswagen. The company accidentally, but fundamentally, changed the landscape of diesels and the attitude of American buyers toward the oil burners. Not only that, other automakers are now second-guessing their diesel programs and vowing to pursue electricity instead. In fact, Volvo says that the next […]

Despite Dangers, Speed Limits Keep Rising  

Are you willing to risk safety to save 6.5 minutes of travel time?

Lower limits are typically reserved for winding two-lane country highways while the 80-mph jaunts are reserved […]

You’re About to Save Money on a Used Car  

There’s a perfect storm of conditions coming together to ensure that car buyers can walk away with the deal of a lifetime on a late-model used car.
