Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT review

Can we all just take a moment, and tip our hats to the boys at Mopar. You don’t necessarily have to own a Mopar to be alive and be a fan of what these guys are doing. But it’s hard be a fan & NOT eventually want one. The ‘Mopar’ just starts to sink in, and it’s hard not to smile. Because Mopar is the ZZ Top of the automotive industry. Walking into the room wearing dark sunglasses & a bandana… with traces gold glitter on a disheveled suit. Quietly & confidently saying something over the corporate boardroom chatter...

2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack Review

Don’t do what I did, and accidentally mistake the 2017 Golf Alltrack for some sort of all-terrain GTI… you’ll be let down. It’s an easy mistake to make. The Alltrack has cool & adventurous trim. It sparks some curiosity. It seems maybe a little separated from the herd. But get behind the wheel, and it’s definitely ‘the herd’. The exciting stops at red with silver trim. The interior feels over-sanitized and under-comfortable. When it comes to power & performance (particularly throttle response & downshift response time) – it’s too little too late. A yawn in a neat costume. If...

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...
