Honest opinions - the good, bad and ugly. View the entire archive.

2018 Hyundai Elantra GT

It’s not hard to understand why sedans aren’t selling. They are too small. Even a full-size sedan hasn’t got much trunk. And what trunk it’s got is isolated from the rest...

2018 Ford Eco Sport

Really small SUVs aren't a new idea. You may remember old school examples like the Geo (later Chevy) Tracker of the '90s, as a for-instance. But the idea's making a comeback. And it's...

The Cadillac Escalade is ridiculous - but then, so is my orange 1976 Trans Am. Both are over-engined, exuberant, garish - and so, glorious. Both also annoy the right people. Rev engine at the...

2018 VW GTI

The  VW GTI hatchback sedan doesn't look like a Corvette, but it reminds me of one. Not a new one. My high school buddy’s 1978 L-82 coupe The GTI has a 220 hp engine....

2018 Mini Countryman Plug-in Hybrid

One of the reasons the Germans lost the Battle of Britain almost 80 years ago ties into the problem with plug-in hybrids today. Range on the batteries. The Lutwaffe’s fighters could only remain...
