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

2012 Nissan Sentra SE-R

Really quick - and really powerful - compact sedans and hatches are now being sold by half a dozen automakers. Some - like the 2012 MazdaSpeed3 - belt out more than...

2012 Fiat 500: A Better Mini?

I did not expect to like the Fiat 500. But I quickly fell in love with it. It may be my favorite new car. I'd consider buying one myself - and that...

The new 2012 VW Beetle

Back in the day - back in the early-mid '70s - some people didn't like the Super Beetle (as opposed to the original Beetle) because the Super had a strut front...

2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG

The Ford Excursion and Explorer (the real one, with a V-8 and real 4WD) were done in by doubling gas prices, 16 MPG and a tailspinning economy. Lighter-duty (car-based) FWD/AWD crossovers like...

2012 Infiniti G: A Tux-Wearing Z

A couple of things about the 2012 Infiniti G37 coupe... . No, wait - three things: It's available with AWD. Comes standard with a 330 hp engine. There's an optional retractable hardtop. You can get one...

2011-’12 Saab 9-5: Not The Same-Old Same-Old

If you buy a new Saab 9-5, you will be one of 806 people in the U.S. (so far, as of this writing in late 2011) to own one. That means only...
