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

2017 VW Jetta

Channeling Mr. T, I pity VW. The company has been Hiroshima'd by the fallout from the diesel "cheating" scandal. But the nuking was its own doing. Not the "cheating" part. The bending over part. VW should have...

2012 Toyota Prius C
