2015 Hyundai Genesis V8: Can you call a $50,000 vehicle a good value?

2015 Hyundai Genesis V8: Can you call a $50,000 vehicle a good value?

We’ve all heard the expression “follow the money.” Hyundai has heard it also, and has been trying to do that for a while now. Once upon a time, the upstart Korean brand was content with feeding the masses low-priced transportation that did a competent job of people moving. Yet, as much as companies love to […]

2015 Hyundai Genesis Puts Power to the Road with All-Wheel Drive

  gen·e·sis noun \ˈje-nə-səs\ :the beginning of something.That’s according to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary.

2014 Lincoln MKZ Review: Almost Continental

2014 Lincoln MKZ Review: Almost Continental

Although Henry Leland was the documented founder of Lincoln (in 1917), the Lincoln Motor Company – as we’ve grown to know it, love it or loathe it – wasn’t formed until its purchase by the Ford Motor Company in 1922 and its emotional acquisition by a young Edsel Ford in the middle of that same […]

2014 Toyota Avalon Limited review: Comfortable transportation

2014 Toyota Avalon Limited review: Comfortable transportation

Oh, that’s cold. And we’re not talking about the temperature when we were testing the 2014 Toyota Avalon Limited but the response of a retirement-eligible grandmother to Toyota’s flagship sedan. Putting her behind the wheel of the Avalon elicited this response, and we quote: “Lord this car is boring. And it wallows. I feel like […]

2015 Honda Fit EX-L Navi first drive review: Refitted

We’ve said it before, but he Honda Fit has a name that just seems to, well, fit. Is there another subcompact that packs so much utility into a give length of wheelbase? We can’t think of one. The Fit, with its reconfigurable rear seat, can fit everything from bicycles to big boxes from big box […]

2014 Ford F-150 Tremor Review: A Tale of the Tape – or Stickin’ it to ‘em

2014 Ford F-150 Tremor Review: A Tale of the Tape – or Stickin’ it to ‘em

North Texas – This, ladies and gentlemen, is Truck Country (make that ‘TRUCK COUNTRY’). And with that, the highways and byways of Texas’ Truck Country are  littered with the pick’em-up truck: Home Depot’s delivery drive looks like a staging area for the Texas Auto Writers, while mall parking lots are liberally ‘malled’ by the F-Series, […]

2014 Lexus GX 460 Luxury review: Refreshing

2014 Lexus GX 460 Luxury review: Refreshing

The second generation Lexus GX 460, which debuted for the 2010 model year, was due for a mid-generational  refresh in 2014, and as Lexus has committed to its “spindle” grille as a brand trademark, how better to set the new model apart. Still, deep down there’s not a lot of change since last year, or […]

2014 Hyundai Equus road test:  ‘Home, Jeeves’

2014 Hyundai Equus road test: ‘Home, Jeeves’

No doubt about it, the refreshed 2014 Hyundai Equus Ultimate is a full-size, full-bore luxury sedan with more than 50 special comfort, convenience and safety features. But, as I cruised around the urban and rural roads of southern South Carolina, I couldn’t help thinking there was one more important feature that I could have really […]

2014 Toyota RAV4 XLE review: Looking again at Toyota’s small crossover-SUV

2014 Toyota RAV4 XLE review: Looking again at Toyota’s small crossover-SUV

We drove the fourth generation when it was introduced as a 2013 model but haven’t had the opportunity since then to get behind the wheel of Toyota’s smallest SUV for a week long drive. That drought just ended with a week spent in a 2014 Toyota RAV4 XLE. The XLE is the midlevel trim of […]

2014 Honda Accord Coupe Review: Handbook or Manual?

2014 Honda Accord Coupe Review: Handbook or Manual?

The appeal of a coupe is anything but intrinsic. On some platforms shared with a more conventional 4-door the coupe absolutely shines, to the point you wonder why they’re not all done that way. And in just as many instances one wonders why the design and product teams bother at all. With typically longish doors […]
