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

2011 Toyota Venza

Apparently, station wagons are not cool. And "crossovers" are becoming too commonplace. So what do you call a new vehicle that's based on an existing sedan and has most of the characteristics...

2011 Buick LaCrosse

Sometimes silence isn't golden. Why isn't Buick doing more to advertise the 2010 LaCrosse? By rights, this car should be puttin' a hurtin' on the Lexus ES350 - known for years as...
