Last week, I got to spend some quality time behind the wheel of the new for 2018 Volvo XC60. It’s a great car filled with the sort of neat little details that used to be called “character” in the 70s, and it’s powered by an absolutely bonkers little 316 HP four-cylinder engine that is both […]

2017 Hyundai Elantra Eco Gets Driven, Hard (Kinda) in sport mode for eight days. Despite ignoring the “Eco” settings, I still got good MPG!
The new Hyundai Sonata plug-in hybrid will be available, initially, in Cali, CT, Maine, Mass., NJ, NY, OR, RI and VT with a price tag just a tick over $30K.
The new for 2016 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is so much better than the 2010-2014 model you might not even believe it’s made by the same company.
I’ve been with the 2015 Lexus NX 300h hybrid SUV a few days already, and one thing is definitely on my mind: the Enform infotainment system.
Testing cars is sort of like dating. Car dating. We meet, there’s an attraction (or not!). We get to know each other, then we decide if it’s love.
I had high hopes for the new 2015 Chrysler 200 S AWD, but that’s because I wanted a new age Lancia Delta HF. How does this 200S stand up to that legend?
The 2014 Kia Optima Hybrid got a few updates this year, and they work together to make the car look really, really good- but does it go as good as it looks?
The new for 2015 Hyundai Sonata Eco SE is good. Surprisingly good. Stupid good, in fact – and its fun-to-drive 38 MPG turbocharged self is priced to move!
When the refrigerator white Mitsubishi Outlander Sport arrived in Oak Park, the area was still recovering from the record-cold of the “Polar Vortex” that had swept through days before. There was enough snow in the alley behind the house, still, that the wife’s Hyundai Tucson needed digging out more than once just to get in […]
For those of you curious to find out how the 2014 Chevy Sonic turbo + manual transmission stacks up who don’t want to read a long, rambling review, let me tell you this: the Chevy Sonic is good. Like, really good. Those of you who are hoping for a little more context and clarity regarding […]
The last time I drove a Toyota Camry Hybrid was back in June, and I ended up sick on the side of the road in Texas- was it the Toyota‘s fault, or was it my third Whataburger? I reached out to Toyota after my return to Chicago in order to give them a shot at […]

As I walked up to the shining white Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, admiring a bold styling that didn’t remind me of any car, I really wanted to like it. I did not.
I went to a recent Honda hosted event in San Antonio and compared the new accord to the 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It seemed nice enough, then I threw up.
I’m still a newbie when it comes to automotive journalism, but I’ve already learned quite a bit about this strange world where automakers and writers are often indistinguishable from each other. One of the big perks is access to an automaker’s fleet of press cars, which big companies like Ford and Toyota are able to […]
