2017 Honda Civic 5-door SPORT review

With a Civic, you pretty much think you know what you’re gonna get. However, this ones a little bit revolutionary. The 2017 Honda Civic 5-door exceeded my expectations. I’ll run through the bullet points of what really stood out. You can get the Civic 5-door Sport, with the 1.5 TURBO engine, and the 6-SPEED transmission, for just 22.5K window sticker. That’s a sweet spot! And that INCLUDES the Sport aero package (ground effects), the center-exit exhaust tips, and the 18-inch wheels. If you’re going to use this car as a tuning platform of any sort, that’s a pretty great...

Fiat 124 Spider Review

Step back and reconsider what you might have heard from the mainstream automotive journalists… the Fiat 124 Spider is more fun than the Mazda MX-5. And I’m at least 87% sure of that. Reality is: most old-school automotive journalists fell in love with the Miata/MX-5 28 years ago, and that love still runs deep. In other words, they’re loyal. And it doesn’t hurt/help that most of them probably race Miatas on the weekend. They love & defend the MX-5; it’s the original. I understand the loyalty, but maybe just maybe, they have blinders on a little bit. And of...

What?? 2017 Buick Lacrosse Review

You know those cheesy Buick commercials where people look around all astonished & impressed like, “Oh my gosh this is a Buick??” Well – it’s real life. Here’s what I took away from the 2017 Buick Lacrosse: If you (or your mom) are in the market for a nice, comfortable, luxurious sedan… something like a Lexus ES… you need to at least go drive the Lacrosse before you sign any paperwork. Just try to drive it without being badge-biased. That’s all I’m saying. Here’s why: The suspension on the 2017 Lacrosse is way above its class. It’s honestly better than it...

2017 Honda Ridgeline Review

The 2017 Honda Ridgeline. I wanted to hate it, but then I drove it… and now I just want it. I hear people say that the new Honda Ridgeline isn’t a real truck. Before I drove it, I would have agreed. Now I’d say, define ‘truck’. Because here’s the bottom line: If you need to haul heavy equipment, the new Ridgeline is not your best choice… and everyone with an ounce of sense already knows that. But – if you’re with your buddies hauling mountain bikes to the trailhead everyday, or kayaks to the water (or anything similar), I’m pretty...

The Best Jeep Soft Top? Rampage Trailview

Rampage – Trailview Top – Jeep Wrangler Unlimited This is the new Trailview top, from Rampage. It’s a frameless top for your Jeep JKU – meaning that there is no frame/skeleton. It’s great if you have a hard top on your Jeep, but want something more fun for the warmer seasons. The rear & side windows come out in seconds, leaving you with an awesome shaded bikini top for iffy weather, or hot summer days. BUT – the best & most unique feature of the Rampage Trailview top: is that it has the ability to open/close the top FROM...
