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

2017 Toyota Highlander

First of all, there are no turbos. That fact alone sets the current Toyota Highlander apart from almost all other mid-sized crossover SUVs - most of which either come standard with or...

2016 Mustang Ecoboost vs. Turbo 2016 Camaro

V8 muscle cars are all kinds of fun - but it's not necessary to have a V8 to have a muscle car. Or at least, it's not necessary to have a V8...

2013 VW Beetle TDI

The latest Beetle (new but no longer "New") is more than an economy-minded car. It got bigger last year - as well as sportier and more luxurious. Sexy, even. And now the TDI...

2017 Cadillac Escalade

The Cadillac Escalade is ridiculous - but then, so is my orange Trans Am. Both are (or were, in the case of my ancient Pontiac) designed to meet emotional rather than...
