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? Most of us would say yes to that without any hesitation, yet when we search for a new or used car, we typically keep our searches narrowed to cars available within 25 miles or so. Expanding your search to other cities could save you hundreds, […]

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. Anything less is deemed inadequate because there’s just not enough room for two adults, three kids, and occasional friends in a traditional 2-row sedan or 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 […]

Will Technology Change Faster Than Automakers Can Handle?  

Revolutions don’t happen without warning signs, and all the signs are in place for a major shift in how, and what, we drive. We devote a lot of space on this blog to the quickly changing landscape of the car industry and the ways humans transport themselves. The century-old model of consumers buying gas-powered cars […]

Chevy Camaro: Better Get Used to Second Place  

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 Mustang and Camaro have been trading the top sales spot for a number of years now, with the Mustang clearly in the lead for the last three years. It’s the […]

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? Speed limits on highways across this great country range between 55 and 85 miles per hour, depending on the size, location, and congestion of the highway. Lower limits are typically reserved for winding two-lane country highways while the 80-mph jaunts are reserved […]

The First Cars of CarGurus  

It could be a Pink Cadillac or a '69 Chevy (with a 396, Fuelie heads, and a Hurst on the floor). Cars have long been associated with independence and the open road, and no car epitomizes newfound freedom quite like your first car. Contrary to popular belief, not everyone at CarGurus is a gearhead—although some […]

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. It began in 2014, when automakers wanted to jump-start their sales by offering crazy low lease terms to lure folks into dealerships. It worked and new car sales […]

The New Nissan Titan: Good, But Will Anyone Notice?  

The U.S. auto industry can confidently make the claim that it builds the best full-size trucks in the world. Some foreign automakers attempt to compete, but so far no other company has come close to matching the reliability, capability, or popularity of the American Big 3. Simply put, if you want a truck to haul […]

Kids Born Today May Never Drive a Car  

My kids have never known what it’s like to not have Internet or cell phones. It makes me feel pretty old to say things like, “When I was a kid we had to look things up in the encyclopedia and make phone calls while attached to the wall.” When my kids are parents, they’ll probably […]

Apple Could Potentially Take Over Tesla  

Would Tesla be better off under Apple ownership? Rumors of an Apple buyout of the California automotive startup have circulated for years, but conditions for a takeover have never looked as good as they do right now. In fact, Citigroup has listed Tesla as a prime target for Apple to purchase with its massive cash reserve. Apple […]

As Major Brands Scale Back, Jaguar Surges Forward  

The Jaguar E-Type, dubbed "the most beautiful car ever made" by none other than Enzo Ferrari, has nonetheless enjoyed a rocky legacy. For all the praise its styling receives, the car has continued to be remembered as a reliability nightmare. In the 1976 film, "The Gumball Rally," the Jaguar E-Type entrant fails to start (and, […]

End of the Road for the VW Beetle?  

Few vehicles are as iconic or as long-lasting as the Volkswagen Beetle. Beetles are easily identifiable and immediately recognized as Volkswagens almost anywhere in the world. The original Beetle, officially known as the Type 1, began production in 1939 and continued until 2003. Volkswagen built 21,529,464 original Beetles which makes the car the longest-running and most-manufactured […]

The Solution for Distracted Driving: Invented in 1836?  

Sometimes a modern problem is best solved by looking into the past. Distracted driving, for instance, is a major cause of accidents, injuries, and deaths on roads around the world. Automakers have attempted to address the problem by connecting our phones to our cars so we may continue to receive the constant stream of information […]

Will Acura and Lexus Recover Before the Midsize Sedan Dies?  

There’s a deathwatch in effect for midsize sedans in America. While no one expects sedans to go extinct anytime soon, there are disturbing trends that point to a major contraction in the market for them. This is bad news for automakers that have staked their claim in creating the best midsize sedans money can buy. […]

New Navigator Hopes to Reinvent the Luxury SUV  

What if your new SUV came with a driver? We’re not talking about that fancy self-driving technology that’s all the rage right now, but an honest-to-goodness driver who will take you wherever you want to go. It’s an option for one vehicle, and one of the many reasons why buying an SUV isn’t as straight […]

The Best Insurance for Every Type of Driver  

Insurance has long been the bane of many car-buyers' budgets. Today, perhaps more than ever, affordable insurance rates—which still provide appropriate coverage—have become the budgeting equivalent of the holy grail. You see, as new-car prices continue to rise, auto loan terms have grown alongside them. CarGurus recently calculated the average new car listing prices for […]

What Would Make Your Car Perfect?  

For almost a year I’ve driven an electric Nissan Leaf and there’s just one thing keeping it from being perfect. Well, no. There are a lot of things keeping the Leaf from being perfect. Considering that it’s a $30,000 car, you’d think it would have power seats, door and steering wheel mounted controls that light […]

Can BMW Reclaim the Title of Ultimate Driving Machine?  

BMW spent years, decades even, proclaiming itself as the Ultimate Driving Machine. It wasn’t all just talk, though, because the company delivered again and again with vehicles that were the benchmark of luxury and performance. Others tried, but no one could approach BMW’s level of superiority. Best luxury sedan, best sport sedan, best luxury SUV… […]

Are Electric Vehicles as Popular as Pickups?  

About one in seven American drivers say their next new vehicle purchase will be a pickup. There’s nothing surprising in that statement, right? I mean trucks are the best-selling vehicles in America. We can’t get enough of the big, powerful, fuel-draining mega-machines. So would it surprise you to learn that the same number of people […]

Station Wagons Are Back, But They’re Not Called Station Wagons Anymore  

Once upon a time station wagons were must-have family vehicles. Cars like the Vista Cruiser and Buick Estate were parked with pride in driveways across the nation. They epitomized family road trips as much as financial success. Owning a station wagon was a status symbol of a life well-lived, even if behind closed doors they offered private chambers […]

Porsche Learns a Valuable Lesson from the 911 R  

At one point in 2007, Porsche owned 4 of the 10 fastest lap times around Germany's Nurburgring. The other owners? Well, a couple belonged to specialty-car makers Donkervoort and Radical. Pagani had the 7th spot with the Zonda F Clubsport, and the remaining position was held by the McLaren F1. Things have become a bit […]

Mirage or Metro? The Battle for MPG Supremacy Spans the Decades  

It was Earth Day and I pulled up to a noodle joint and parked next to an old Geo Metro. The diminutive little car stood out in a sea of pickups and SUVs, like a defiant statement against the modern status quo. As I exited my vehicle, the owner of the Metro approached his. "Great […]

Comparing Compact Sedans on CarGurus  

We're only a month into Spring, but most of us have already started looking forward to the summer months. Not long from now we'll be having barbeques outside in peak humidity, baseball will be the only televised sport we'll care to watch, and kids will try to find summer jobs to eat up some of […]

What Full-Size SUV Would You Buy for Under $8,000?  

There’s been a dilemma at my house this week. Every time I step out the door and need to take a bevy of children to lacrosse practice or Costco or wherever else our daily adventures lead, I’m faced with a choice between two vehicles: A 2004 Chevy Tahoe or a 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser. Only […]

With Volvo’s Comeback Complete, What’s Next?  

Well, they did it. Written off as a doomed automaker when Ford unloaded it to Geely Automotive in 2010, Volvo has defied the odds and roared back to life while keeping its Swedish charm under Chinese ownership. That wasn’t supposed to happen. While execs at Volvo remained confident through the transition that they’d bring the […]

Volkswagen’s Punishment Will Electrify America  

As part of a settlement with the federal government over its diesel emissions scandal, Volkswagen will help electrify the United States of America by building charging stations and investing $2 billion in electric transportation over the next decade. And you thought the company would get off with a slap on the wrist. The federal government saw […]

Self-Driving Cars Are Never Going to Happen  

After seeing the Lucid Air—Tesla's most formidable competition to date—at the 2017 New York International Auto Show, it’s clear that electrification is the future of transportation. Not only do electric cars deliver exceptionally low running costs and valuable peace of mind to more environmentally conscious drivers, but more and more examples are turning in performance […]

Lucid Motors Going Head-to-Head With Tesla  

Tesla is going to have to share the road. The electric automaker could be credited with the mainstream acceptance of EVs and has inspired many new electric cars from other automakers. (Think the Bolt would be here if Tesla wasn’t?) New automakers ranging from Faraday Future to Lucid Motors also have Tesla to thank for paving […]

Cadillac’s Super Cruise: Self-Driving Done Right?  

Self-driving technology continues to develop faster than auto writers can report on it. Tesla’s AutoPilot has paved the way for autonomous driving, but it may have an achilles heel: Drivers tend to get lazy and forget that they need to continue keeping an eye on the road. If the system fails, which has happened at […]

Dodge’s Plan to Prevent Demon Markups  

If you’ve ever purchased an in-demand or limited edition new car, you’re familiar with dealer markups. The extra costs are added onto the MSRP and disguised as a “market adjustment,” “convenience fee,” or any other creative wording the dealer chooses. Markups above and beyond MSRP are pure profit for a dealer and, for the right […]

Here’s the Best-Selling Non-Pickup in America  

The list of best-selling vehicles in the United States is always topped with the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado. Beyond those two constants, there’s a consistent flow of Toyotas and Hondas that typically round out the top 10. One car that hasn’t spent much time on the best-selling list is the Nissan Rogue. Its name […]

Concern Rises Over U.S. Auto Market While Mexico’s Thrives  

Mexico isn’t known for its thriving economy or world-class production facilities. A week spent there earlier this month showed me that it’s a country filled with delightful people, gorgeous beaches, and a rich and colorful culture, but is also rife with political turmoil, overwhelming poverty, and violent crime. Mexico is still classified as a developing […]

How Much Would a Kia Be Worth Without the Kia Logo?  

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been driving around and have uttered the words, “Man that’s a pretty car. I might want one if it had a different logo on the grille.” Isn’t branding a funny thing? Throw a BMW logo on a Hyundai and suddenly the practical $30,000 Korean sedan looks […]

Repetition inspires varied emotions here in New England. Pats fans nearly lost their minds in February, when Tom Brady and company managed to mount an insane comeback to win another Super Bowl.

Faraday’s Future in Question as Financial Fears Rise  

Faraday Future still hasn’t built a car and already its death watch has begun. Premature death isn’t necessarily uncommon or unprecedented in the auto industry.

Toyota May Have Just Made the Prius Obsolete  

Trying to sell someone a hybrid car while gas prices are low is a little like selling summer clothes in Barrow, Alaska. It might be a great concept but if there’s not a lot of need, there won’t be a lot of sales. Such is the case with the newest version of the Toyota Prius. Yes, […]

America’s Best Selling Car Is… a Nissan?  

You're not imagining it: Today’s roads are filled with Nissans. Although its perceived dominance pales in comparison to Toyota’s and Honda’s, Nissan has actually crept close to both automakers in its attempt to strengthen its presence in the United States. Through a series of tactics, Nissan managed to crack 10% market share this year—besting Honda […]

Coming Back to a Dealership Near You: Volkswagen TDI!  

Volkswagen has approval to bring back the diesels! Not since 2015 has a VW TDI left a dealer’s lot.

Uber Halts Self-Driving Program, BMW Announces One  

The drive toward full autonomy in cars continues on its relentless march, but setbacks continue to plague the new technology.

Five Must-Have Accessories for Any Old Car  

Spending so much time in and around brand-new cars certainly comes with its perks.

Marketing can be a company’s best friend when done correctly, or it can incite anger and lawsuits if done wrong.

Bad News For Finance Company Means Good Deals on Used Cars

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.

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

Flexibility is a benefit enjoyed often by small companies, but rarely by large ones.

By contrast, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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?

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.

Headlight Replacement: Not What it Used to Be  

I wonder if you, dear readers, share this same frustration in car ownership.

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Why GM Might Not Want to Sell You a Malibu  

Maybe the people at General Motors aren’t used to selling a lot Malibus.
