The 2016 Scion iA is a solid, reliable, fun to drive sedan based on the Mazda 2 backed by Toyota’s superior dealer network. Is that enough reason to buy it?

The new for 2016 Scion iA promised a fun, sporty drive with a tiny footprint and big mile per gallon numbers. The car made a great first impression, but what do I think of the car after a few dates days? How Was It? For the first few days of my Scion iA test […]
Simple, honest, efficient, and sporty- the new for 2016 Scion iA should tick all the boxes, but will it be enough for millennials to fall in love with it?
There’s no point in beating around the bush on this one. I really, really liked the little red 2015 Toyota Yaris SE I test-drove last week. There were a few things, small things, that kept it from being perfect. For the first time since we started using this “car dating” format, though, this was a […]
GEM’s neighborhood electric vehicle gets driven around the resort towns of Northern Michigan – and we discovered that it was a pack of stupid, awesome fun!
Driving the 2014 Chevy Spark gave me the giggle fits, and all the crazy stuff the willing chassis urged me to do was covered by its IIHS Top Safety rating!
In America, November is a month of thanks- and I have a lot to be thankful for this year. One of those things is the fact that GM decided to let me drive a 2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel from Oak Park, Illinois to Wellington, Ohio to visit friends and family over the Thanksgiving weekend. All […]
LOS ANGELES, California, November 22, 2013 (ENS) – The Honda Accord has been chosen as the Green Car of the Year® 2014, but this year the award goes not to just one model but three: the Accord, Accord Hybrid, and Accord Plug-In Hybrid. “Green Car…
The new for 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid goes on sale today, with a reasonable pricetag, a 50 MPG EPA rating, an almost impossibly low-emissions 4 cylinder engine, a torquey electric motor, and withOUT a conventional transmission. As I mentioned in my initial review of Honda’s 50 MPG Accord Hybrid earlier this month, this new Honda […]
Here it is, the revolutionary new for 2014, 50 MPG Accord Hybrid. Before we get too far into my driving impressions of the car, though, I want to make a few things clear. First, the new Accord hybrid is a revelation. Second, In-n-Out Burger is seriously overrated. It’s all about the vastly superior Whataburger, and […]
While the debate in America rages over the future of high speed rail, Japan is still looking for ever more futuristic ways to get around. The latest idea; a hovering “Aero Train” that floats above the ground. This is like something out of the Jetsons. The Aero Train is a ground-effects vehicle…kind of like a […]
We’ve covered Russia’s CNG/electric hybrid YoMobile before (here, and here) but now the cars are getting really – well, REAL. To show off just how real things are getting, the keys to a fully functional “pre-production” model were recently haded over to Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin (the World’s Craziest Bad***) for a quick spin […]
[social_buttons] A US-built Tesla Roadster has broken the world record for the distance travelled by an electric production car on a single charge. While competing in the Global Green Challenge, Australian Simon Hackett and co-driver Emilis Prelgauskas drove an incredible 313 miles before the batteries finally died in their Roadster. Until now, the record has […]
