Back in 2012, I remember seeing the achingly pretty LF-LC Concept and thinking, “Lexus will never build something that outrageous for the road.” Fast forward five years and I saw the early models, re-monikered the LC 500, gliding along city streets. I was dead wrong. I was also in lust. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a press loan.Read More

I recently had the rare opportunity to experience a base model Honda CR-V. It hasn’t been too many years ago that a base model vehicle was equipped with only minimum levels of safety equipment and very few comfort or convenience items. The CR-V LX is a base model that I could actually enjoy.Read More
I was driving 80mph when a white Jeep Gladiator blasted by me in the right lane.
“How dare he? And it such a vehicle!” Bitterness and disdain washed over me like an acid flashback washes over a Deadhead boomer. “Who buys these things?” I shouted, shaking my fist at the inside of my windshield.
After receiving a heavily revised engine with more horsepower along with a list of other changes for the 2019 model year that were significant enough to justify a change in the model designation to ND2, updates to the 2020 model are relatively few.Read More
A new transmission, new color, standard Apple CarPlay, locking tailgate, wider rear door opening, and standard Honda Sensing are among the changes.Read More
During the week I drove this car, I had a lot of questions about Konas. Not this Kona, the electric ones. “Hey, how far does that thing go on a charge?” “Hey, how long does it take to top up the batteries?” “HAY, WHAT’S IT LIKE TO DRIVE THE FUTURE AND SAVE THE PLANET?”Read More
The 2019 Mazda 3 is a slick and comfortable small sedan. In Mazda fashion, the 3 gets incrementally better with each passing year. The last one I drove was in 2017, how does the new one compare?Read More
Back in 2002, Volvo build their first SUV, the XC90. It drew on design elements from the wagons. From that point, Volvo’s aesthetic evolved from its boxy beginnings to what must be some of the best looking, most refined cars on the road.Read More
The last Acura RDX I drove was the 2017 model. I drove 300 miles in one direction with my girlfriend and drove back with a fiance. That car’s performance was flawless albeit unremarkable. For 2019, Acura introduced its third-generation RDX. It’s more beautiful and more comfortable. We took this one to San Antonio to watch our friends tie the knot. Thus forever solidifying a link between nuptial processes and Acura’s RDX in my mind.Read More
A few months back, I was backing the Ford out of my driveway. When I went to mash the middle pedal it went to the floor. No Brakes. Thankfully, I hadn’t built up enough steam to continue rolling into my neighbor’s yard. And thankfully I have insurance on the old Ford that provides towing when it breaks down. A quick phone call and a short tow ride later, and the Ford was hauled to the shop on a tow truck.Read More
Introduced in 1999, the Toyota Tundra has become a staple among truck drivers. A roomy and capable pickup coupled with Toyota’s reputation for reliability and excellent resale value makes Tundras a good investment. Since their inception, they’ve been made in the ‘States. Today they’re assembled in San Antonio, Tx, making Tundras the only full-size truck to be built in the lone star state. So, after two decades with only one major update, how does the newest Tundra stack up?Read More
