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 […]

The Most Mouth-Watering Cars of the 2017 New York International Auto Show  

58% of the New York International Auto Show's attendees plan to shop for a car within 12 months. From practical options like the new Buick Regal Sportback and TourX to fan favorites like Subaru's redesigned Outback and Crosstrek, auto shows provide an unparalleled opportunity to comparison shop. Even if you're in the market for something […]

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 […]

Change and Sameness at the 2017 NYIAS  

Auto shows provide strong evidence to support the following proverb: "The more things change, the more they stay the same." Gearheads from around the world arrive at the Javits Convention Center with eyes alight every Spring to get a look at and learn about the latest and greatest cars available for sale at the New […]

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 […]

Springing Into Another List of Convertibles  

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. But we were much less happy about the blizzard last Saturday, exactly 20 years after an even bigger April Fools' Day snowstorm and […]

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. Starting a car manufacturing business is one of the hardest endeavors to begin because of the outrageous costs of entry, strict government regulations, and long timeline to profitability. Many of […]

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 […]

A Corvette SUV: Could it Happen?  

Let’s play a game of what-if for a minute. I’ll set the stage for you. Think of the cars in the stables of Porsche, Jaguar, Aston Martin, or any other luxury/performance automaker. What do they all have in common? A full range of automobiles that meet the needs of specific target markets, of course. Some […]

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. In September of that year, news broke that the German automaker had been cheating on government emissions tests and its diesel-powered cars actually emitted many times the legal limits of nitrogen oxides during normal driving conditions. All […]

Thanks to Toyota, Ford, and Jeep, Off Roading’s Future Looks Bright  

This is an exciting time for all of you rock hopping, river traversing, boulder crushing off roaders.

The upcoming selection of vehicles purpose-built to tackle any road not covered in asphalt, of course. The stalwarts from Land Rover […]

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. Google was among the first to publicly test self-driving cars and has logged millions of mostly trouble-free miles. Tesla is also proving the technology, though not without occasional tragedy. Automakers around the world are also going […]

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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.

Why GM Might Not Want to Sell You a Malibu  

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

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 […]

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 […]

Don’t Wait for Sunday! Here Are the Super Bowl Car Ads  

You don’t need to wait for Sunday to see the best part of the Super Bowl. Sure, the Patriots and Falcons will deliver an epic game of back-and-forth offensive warfare, but honestly the best time to get up and use the restroom is just before the next commercial break.

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: The Car of Your Nightmares  

This has been a week of muscle car madness. From the newly released specs of the Ford GT to the merits of the AWD Challenger to the midengine Corvette, we’ve had plenty of car fodder to comment on and get all worked up over in the last couple of days. Why not extend it out […]

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 […]

Specs Revealed: 2017 Ford GT  

Back at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Ford surprised the automotive world with the debut of a brand new Ford GT supercar. Ford promised a return to Le Mans with the car to commemorate the company’s 50th anniversary of its 1966 overall win. That was two years ago and, in all the time since, we never […]

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. The program has its supporters and detractors, but overall the company sees its partnership with dealerships as a value-added service for club members. Walmart wants in too. The nation’s largest retailer has announced a partnership with dealers, a financial institution, […]

Risky Business: GMC Debuts New Gear-Shifting System  

Every year, new "must-have" features seem to appear in cars. From ventilated seats to Apple CarPlay to little mustang-shaped puddle lights, when it comes to bringing in new customers, a product manager's creativity knows no bounds. 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. At about 1 a.m. he set up an Uber ride and waited for a blue Subaru to arrive and safely shuttle him home. When a Subaru pulled up in front of the bar that matched what Uber said […]

2017: The Year the Future Arrives  

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  

I made a promise to my family to not text while driving. Doing so is wildly dangerous and irresponsible, but also incredibly easy and tempting. On any day, in any city around the country, a driver can look into the windows of surrounding cars and see a driver typing on his or her phone. That […]

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. In the last few weeks, Ford has cancelled plans for a Mexican production plant and GM has committed to invest a billion dollars in U.S. manufacturing while […]

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. If you've sniffed around automotive news headlines from the past few years' CES shows, you know more and more pundits are beginning to view cars as appliances for daily life, and the […]

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. Let me guess, that story is about a modern electric version?” “Yeah,” she said, “So you don’t think it’ll happen?” I didn’t mean […]

The Boston Auto Show: Where You Can See Cars You Can Actually Buy (from a Dealer)  

Last night kicked off the 2017 New England International Auto Show, held right here in Boston, Massachusetts. While the big event in Detroit earns the majority of attention around this time of year, New England's exhibition this year is all about cars you can actually find for sale on dealer lots—cars you and I could […]

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. Perhaps Oliver Schmidt, the former head of  VW’s environmental engineering office in charge of communicating with U.S. regulators, didn’t get the memo. […]

Welcome to the 5th Generation of Transportation  

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? If you were lucky, your parents had the kind of wagon where the “way back” seats faced backward and you could see traffic approaching from behind while everyone else faced […]

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. One incident resulted after a driver’s Model S failed to distinguish a crossing truck trailer and crashed into it, killing the driver. Still, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is adamant that autonomous cars […]

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. It included leather and cloth seats, built-in child restraints, Warner Bros. badging with Bugs Bunny leaning against the logo, and a DVD or VHS entertainment system. Chevy managed to use the famed […]

Faraday Unveils its Future: The FF 91  

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. The car is being panned online for a design that is miles short of Tesla’s sexy EV lines and mocked for failing to drive […]

How To Get Your Car Unstuck  

Snoqualmie Pass in Western Washington is a place notorious for winter snowfall.
