2015 Kia K900 V-8 VIP follow-up review: A closer look

This is our third look at the 2015 Kia K900 V-8—fourth if you count the brief exposure we had while experiencing Kia’s free-meal promotion program—which makes this a follow-up to the one-day K900 first drive and another K900 evaluation that left us so impressed. And looking forward to spending more time in the K900 for […]

2015 Honda Fit EX review: Two, two, two cars in one

2015 Honda Fit EX review: Two, two, two cars in one

With a two car household, it’s possible to own vehicles that can serve different purposes. For example, a compact fuel miser can be paired with another that’s big enough to take on Costco, IKEA and the farmers’ market without breathing hard. But with only one car, the task becomes more difficult. Of course, those who […]

2014 Ford Fiesta ST, Take 3: Aimed at the young, fun for everyone

2014 Ford Fiesta ST, Take 3: Aimed at the young, fun for everyone

When you are invited to try out a car with a paint job described as Molten Orange Metallic you pretty much know in advance that it’s not going to be some kind of slothful sedan. And, sure enough, the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST turns out to be a rowdy little hatchback that is as ready […]

2014 Lexus IS-F review: If you only knew

2014 Lexus IS-F review: If you only knew

In the week we spent driving the 2014 Lexus IS-F it’s we heard repeatedly, “A V-8? In that?” If they only knew. But if the cross section of people we met are representative, very few indeed have any idea that beneath  that discreet exterior lies a 416 horsepower five-liter V-8, this in a four-door compact […]

2015 Acura TLX Review: From Marysville, not Merrysville

2015 Acura TLX Review: From Marysville, not Merrysville

In reporting Acura’s business history, past products and present lineup, notes on that history typically chronicle those instances when Honda’s upscale division has lost its way. Whether touching on the well-established ‘Legend’ nameplate and the decision to replace it with ‘RL’, or discontinuing the entry-level RSX not long before rival automakers (notably, BMW and Mercedes) fully […]

2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax SR5 4×4 w/ TRD Off-Road review: Thumping good

2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax SR5 4×4 w/ TRD Off-Road review: Thumping good

If we wanted to, we could have counted the great thumping exhaust pulses from our test 2014 Toyota Tundra SR5 CrewMax. That’s not so much because of it being a Toyota V-8, though that’s where they start. Instead it’s the TRD dual exhaust system. At idle and low revs, the exhaust comes out in lumps […]

2015 Nissan Versa Sedan SV review: ‘My First New Car’

2015 Nissan Versa Sedan SV review: ‘My First New Car’

Not everybody loves hatchbacks. We can understand that. Even if it makes more sense for a one-car apartmenthold—those who have a household are more likely to have just one car—to have the versatility a hatch, some just prefer a sedan. In that case, we’ll de-note the Nissan Versa Note and present the 2015 Nissan Versa […]

2015 Toyota Camry XLE first drive review: Resuited

2015 Toyota Camry XLE first drive review: Resuited

This year should have had a mild facelift of the Toyota Camry. The current generation debuted in 2012, so for 2015—three years later—the Camry should be up for a for a new front and rear cap, perhaps a new dash and a few other running changes. But not this. The 2015 has a new body, […]
