First Drive: 2016 Fiat 500c Abarth

August 24, 2016 // 4 Comments

There are two things you must know as a future Abarth owner: First, sneaking home at 2 o’clock in the morning after doing hood rat things, you’re bound to get caught unless you park three blocks away. And second, if you drive like a teenager who just got their license like we did – the gas station will be your second home. On the contrary to [...Read more]

Where’d We Go: New York, New York

August 23, 2016 // 2 Comments

This may seem a bit unorthodox – traveling somewhere by plane considering this is a car blog. But I’m not so sure how Kia would have felt if I returned their Sportage with 4800 miles on the odometer. And besides, this is just a 36 hour trip… My flight takes me out to New York City for the weekend to visit my friend Lance, who has been out [...Read more]

In a market as fierce as the compact crossover, there’s only one way to attract attention… even if it’s the wrong kind of attention. Or at least that’s from a few people who ever so kindly shared their unwanted opinion when it came to Kia’s completely redesigned 2017 Sportage. Now to call it horrid is downright mean – it’s not, by [...Read more]

As the world leader in hybrid technology, it comes as no surprise when Toyota decided to incorporate this technology into one of their most successful crossovers, the RAV4. In fact, what took so long? The question really lies though, do we really need another hybrid, let alone a hybrid SUV? With fuel costs at a reasonable level, hybrids in larger [...Read more]

As we start entering the dog days of summer, a quick escape from the heat is all we really need. Living in the heart of Phoenix, there is never a destination more than two hours away to get some fresh mountain air.

Time is moving fast – the world is changing and electric cars are no longer the future, they are the now.

Quick Drive: 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport 2.4L GT

Talk to anyone about Mitsubishi and you get the same question, “they’re still around?” And usually with a slight hesitant sigh, “I’m afraid so.” Truth is, most consumers don’t even ponder the thought of a  Mitsubishi when it comes to their next car purchase – Mitsubishi doesn’t advertise much and if you do find yourself at [...Read more]

The 90’s were so good to us, weren’t they? We had AOL internet even though connecting online was such a chore, the original Pokémon where you played with your friends and not on an iPhone and then there were the SUV’s – named for what they actually were capable of. Back in that period, SUV’s where the all-American utilitarian vehicle [...Read more]

Making the world a little bit greener one mile at a time is the moto for most hybrid consumers – saving fuel at the pump while leaving a little less carbon footprint behind.

What happened to the good ole days when a compact was just a car that got you from point A to point B? When it was an affordable form of transportation with no frills, no options – it was just a car? Now compacts are virtually mini-premium off-springs of their larger siblings and in this case, we’re talking about the all new Hyundai Elantra. [...Read more]
