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

2016 Subaru Forester XT

I don't look at the Subaru Forester XT as (god help us) another crossover SUV. I look at it as what it is... A stealth WRX. An M80 in a ladyfinger wrapper. Did you...

2019 Toyota 86

Many people buy Toyotas because they are Toyotas - which have a reputation for being durable, reliable cars that are known to depreciate less fast than other cars. But how about a...

2020 Chevy Silverado Diesel

Diesel engines have practically disappeared from the passenger car market - in part because of regulatory compliance costs that have hurt their cost-to-benefit ratio. They're more expensive to manufacturer; and they're...

2014 VW Touareg TDI

There are three mid-sized (and real-deal, with significant off-road capability) German-brand crossover SUVs that consume not much more fuel than many current economy cars. The fuel, of course, is diesel. And the three...
