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

    2012 Toyota Prius

    Last week, I reviewed the Prius C - and for the first time, found myself praising a hybrid car's design and economics. Or at least, not condemning them. The C is reasonably...

    2017 Fiat 500X

    It's got to be driving them nuts.  Fiat, I mean. Aren't we cute? At least as cute as those German-resurrected Mini Coopers? We are Italians! We are known for our small cute cars! In Europe, they...

    2019 GMC Canyon

    Trucks are hugely popular; they are selling so well that major automakers like Ford and GM have been dropping cars from their lineups - in order to make room for more...

    The Prius has a rival that no one seems to know about - probably because Kia hasn’t done much to market its hybridness. It’s the Kia Niro - and you probably haven’t...

    2011 Ford F250 Super Duty Powerstroke

    "Super Duty" sounds heroic, larger-than-life. And the Ford F250 Super Duty is all those things and more besides. A six-foot-three man needs a step ladder to get up to the bed (Ford thoughtfully...

    2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

    There is something wrong with the Dodge Challenger (and Charger) Hellcat. Not the 707 horsepower under their hoods. There can be nothing wrong with that. Ever.  The problem is that everyone knows they have...

    2013 Jeep Compass

    Playing catch-up sucks - because you almost never do. The Jeep Compass, for instance. Launched in 2007, it was originally intended to be nothing more than a Jeep alternative to metrosexual FWD/AWD compact...
