2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI Exterior Interior Performance Technology Summary What we like: -Love the drive-train -Seats are excellent -26 mpg all while driving like an idiot What we don’t like: -Interior pieces feel cheap -Gear indicator on the MFD is microscopic -Somehow lost the Germanic feel along the way 3.8 Powered by WP Review I’m going to quickly sum up the 2017 Volkswagen Jetta GLI.  As I mentioned before on the 2016 model….this is the best Jetta you can buy.  The other trim levels are just plain disappointing across all categories whereas the GLI is the redeemer.  The champ. ...

2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Review

2017 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Exterior Interior Performance Technology Summary What we like: --- Amazing looks inside and out --- Best ventilated seats in the business --- UConnect is stellar What we don’t like: --- Transmission shifts by an act of Congress --- Passing power is lacking --- Less than stellar MPG 4.4 Powered by WP Review When the KL Cherokee came out it left some members of the general public going ‘huh?’  It’s curvaceous styling stood in stark contrast to the literal box that was the previous Cherokees.  Fast forward a few years and it has turned into one of...

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...
