The one thing that I love about working in the automotive journalism industry is being able to actually help people make real-world purchase decisions. It really isn’t about driving cool cars (though, I admit that’s fun). So I like the take the time to answer some questions that I receive. Here’s one of those. Mark wants to know if he should be looking at a loaded Ford … [Read more…]


Let’s take a trip back to 1971… Oh wait, I can’t. I wasn’t alive then. Dodge has been around for a lot longer than that, but their inspiration for the 2015 Dodge Challenger was taken from the 1971.

That’s big news in and of itself, and something we’ll go more into in future posts. But the question that currently piques our interest … [Read more…]

When a vehicle is in motion, you really shouldn’t leave it. Yes, there might be a rare case where you need to bail, but in general bailing out of the car is not the most ideal situation. Just ask the unidentified man in Colorado who dropped a lit cigarette down his shirt, jumped from his van, then ran over his own head with the van. Yes, he managed to run over his own … [Read more…]

It’s another year, which means it’s time for another Consumer Reports annual reliability survey. Whether or not you agree with the results, the folks at CR do make a valid point.
