Chevrolet Cruze: One Last Look at 2015

The Chevrolet Cruze is Chevy’s answer to the Civic and/or the Corolla. A small entry level car that can do anything a car has to. It is cheap, reliable, and relatively gas-efficient. It is not marked at the top of its class, but that does not make it any less of an option, it is still a great looking car. The 2015 Chevrolet Cruze, will take one last lap with the old body, before their new look arr

Tesla Motors Model S Might Be the Best Car Ever

A few years ago, if you told me that a relatively unknown automaker; Tesla Motors; that historically, has only offered one very niche car, was going to be Car of the Year, I would have bet money that it wouldn’t. Honestly, I never bet, but in that scenario, I would have said to myself, take this chump for all he’s (or she’s) worth. Thankfully that opportunity did not ever present itself, because I

Revamping Alfa Romeo With the Giulia

Alfa Romeo has always had a special place in motorists hearts. This is not because they are known for reliability, but because they were known for outlandishness. Like Lancia, the Italian cars they made were not necessarily going to last through the warranty, but like a supernova, they made an impression during their lifespan… also possibly a huge fire in the process. But that was half the fun. No

Chevrolet Volt: Time to Make a Deal

The Chevrolet Volt was never a leader in sales. Since its debut in 2011 it has trailed behind the full electric Nissan Leaf and the old fashioned non-plug-in Prius. Because of this fact, there are countless 2014 and 2015 Chevrolet Volts in lots across the country; with the introduction of the 2nd Generation 2016s, the time is ripe to make a deal. The Chevy’s affordable plug-in Hybrid, is arguably

Last chance for the old BMW 7 Series

BMW has big plans for 2016. Many unveilings and reveals, but the biggest change is the new generation of 7 series. The old BMW 7 series is a masterpiece, so this might be an excellent chance to get one of last generation’s offering for a steal. I will admit, I went in as a secret shopper, and was totally shut down when it came to actually driving it. Greg, my salesperson, said that no one is allo

Fiat 500 Abarth: Packs a Punch

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has made a bit of progress since its inception 2009. Before the merger, both companies were in real trouble, losing money at every turn. In 2004, Fiat was circling the drain. 5.3 billion in debt, so Sergio Marchionne was working to get General Motors to pay the full 27 billion Fiat was worth in order to save the struggling Italian automaker. Marchionne eventually turned t

Avoiding Death in a Mazda6

After teaching my friend to drive standard yesterday, I tested out his car. Jonathan drives a 2014 Mazda6. Currently it is ranked as the best family sedan in its market. In fact, I have actually been trying to get my hands on the 2016, because it is the first year that the 6 is available with a standard transmission. However, the trip I had in the 2014 Mazda6 had a more of a focus on avoiding deat

Sports Injected Honda Civic?

For many years now the words Civic Si have inspired awe. Not because the car is super fancy or ridiculously fast, but because it was usually indicative of a smart gear head. It was considered to be a sports car, injected with more livability than even the base Honda Civic, which by the way is a fantastic car. Allow me to reiterate, objectively speaking, the Si is a spectacular car. To find anythi

Mazda Miata: Is it a Sports Car?

The Mazda Miata has been around for years. It is small, accurate two-seater, with a proven sales record. In fact, it is the highest selling ‘sports car’ in history, selling over 900,000 units. Do not get me wrong, it is a great little car. A light little convertible with rear wheel drive, and barely enough power to get the back-end out. That (in theory), is all a sports car needs. However, I propo

Last of the Mustang Beating Chevrolet Camaro

The fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro was huge for GM, it was the first time that Chevy ever outsold Ford in the mid-range muscle car category. This was even after Ford had regained prominence themselves with the nameless marketing campaign. For those who have a life, the nameless campaign I am referring to was a series of innovative commercials that reinvented the Ford Brand. The campaign only s
