The 2013 Audi Allroad: Another Station Wagon?

Whenever I see the two words “Station Wagon” in a car’s description, I immediately start to get terrible flashbacks. Images of my old man’s Plymouth Volare SW that was the most embarrassing object ever to pull up to my high school, flash through my head. Thankfully, the 2013 Audi Allroad is none of that, but it […]

The 2013 Audi S6: A V8 believe it or not

2013 audi s6

I can’t recall when I first started to see the disappearance of V8 engines from what would be considered luxury mid-size and full-size family sedans but the sight of one in the new 2013 Audi S6 is a pleasant surprise. It puts the S6 up into that bracket of cars that I’d say carry some […]

The 2013 Mazda MX-5 Miata: A record holder

When Mazda unveiled their small sports car roadster called the Miata at the Chicago Auto Show in 1989, I’m quite sure that even the manufacturer never imagined that 24 years later, the little firebrand would hold the record for the best selling sports car convertible of all time. Other than it now being called MX-5, not much […]

The 2014 Range Rover Sport: Good enough for 007

When the 2014 Range Rover Sport was finally unveiled at the New York International Auto Show this past Tuesday night, it was obvious that the owners had spared no expense as who else but 007 himself, in the form of Daniel Craig, pulled the vehicle onto the stage. I guess if it’s good enough for […]

The 2014 Infiniti Q50: Q for G?

Whenever a company goes through a re-branding process, two things come to mind in this suspicious head of mine. Firstly, the previous brand was so bad that the company had to change it, or that the need for simplicity became the driving force for change. I’m glad to say that the latter of these two […]

The 2013 BMW 760li: The perfect car?

I think if we were to sit maybe 50 people down in a room and have them write down on a piece of paper exactly what features their “dream” car should have, I would be willing to bet that most of what they write down would be covered by the 2013 BMW 760LI Sedan. For […]

The 2013 Nissan 370Z Nismo: Looks like a 911 but that’s it

Nissan sportscars seem like they have been around for ever and a day. I recall back in the days when I worked at an auto recycling yard. The 280ZX was the most popular foreign sports model on the road. We would steer clear of buying any of those cars for parts because the demand was […]

The 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe: The best Hyundai ever made

During my trip to the Chicago Auto Show this month, I was very impressed with the Hyundai exhibit which beautifully showcased some of their new models for the current year. I was particularly smitten with the Genesis Sedan as a high quality luxury car. However, in the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe, they might have just […]

The 2014 Kia Forte: Golf course ready

I think even company executives of the Korean car maker Kia will accept that they are one of the lesser known manufacturers out on the market today but with new vehicles like the 2014 Kia Forte compact car ready for dealer showrooms, it surely won’t be long before they catch up with their friends over […]

The 2013 Volvo XC70 Crossover: It’s still a Station-Wagon

If you have followed my writings in any way over the past few months, you’ll know that I have referred to “our family station-wagon” on several occasions and how it seems all of us have had one at one time or another during our lives. At the 2013 Chicago Auto Show this past week, I […]
