BMW Congratulates Itself With M4 DTM Champion Edition test 1-1

The DTM Touring Car Series is like German NASCAR. Devoted fans tune in to watch a bunch of wild-haired pretty boys try to become champion as they race Mercedes, Audis, and BMWs around tracks like the Nurburgring and Hockenheim. After a 20-year absence, BMW re-entered the series in 2012, and they’ve already cleaned up with an impressive string of victories. To celebrate their success, BMW created a special edition of the 2015 BMW M4. And it’s as gaudy as you would expect.

2016 Honda HR-V test 2

With the Ebola outbreak, rising insurance premiums due to ObamaCare, and the general threat of violence from ISIS, Russia, and the entire Middle East, we really could use another compact crossover right about now. Lucky for us, Honda’s going to give us one next month at the LA Auto Show. And while the sporty 2016 Honda HR-V won’t be able to cure infectious diseases, it does have a Magic Seat, and some other unique features...

Nissan Leaf Sales Embarrass 2014 Ford Focus Electric, So Ford Slashes Price test 1-1

In September, 2,881 people bought a 2014 Nissan Leaf. That funky looking EV boasts best in class, range, distinctive styling, and an affordable base price of $28,800. Nissan took a huge risk bringing this all-electric hatchback to market, and buyers responded by making it the best-selling EV in America. The battery-powered 2014 Ford Focus Electric hasn’t been nearly as well received, and Ford just slashed the price by $6,000 to stir sales. But will that be enough?


New Hybrid or Used Hell-Raiser?: The 2005-2010 BMW M5

On: Tue, Oct 21, 2014 at 12:51PM | By: Teddy Field


The 2005-2010 BMW M5 test 2

The 2015 Toyota Camry Hybrid is one of the safest automotive choices you can make. Its styling will offend no one, yet the Camry Hybrid badge still carries plenty of street cred on the cul-de-sac. The drivetrain is reliable and efficient. And it’s got just enough pep to make most drivers think “it’s sporty”. But for the same money, you could get a V10-powered supersedan that can turn your morning commute into an adrenaline-charged video game. It might measure fuel economy in feet-per-gallon, but it’s worth every penny. If you’re still young enough to poop without pills, then you owe it to yourself to checkout the E60 BMW M5.

Kia Hires LeBron James to Shill the Slow-moving K900 test 1-1

Kia’s bold move into the luxury segment hasn’t gone all that well. Their flagship Kia K900 was designed to compete with cars like the 2015 Lexus LS460, 2015 Jaguar XJ, and the 2015 Audi A8. But no one is taking them seriously. So they’ve fired Morpheus and hired LeBron. This should go well...

Pricing announced for the 2015 Lexus NX test 1-1

The compact luxury crossover market is white-hot at the moment. Everybody from BMW to Lincoln is vying to sell the newly appointed district manager’s wife a leather-trimmed Cute-UTE. Content and style is paramount to making a sale, and the uber-angular 2015 Lexus NX looks ready to claim a sizable chunk of the market. But what do you get for your husband’s hard earned money? Let’s find out…

2015 Ford Mustang Being Recalled test 1-1

Ford dealers just started taking orders on September 9th, but Ford’s new pony car is already being recalled. Fortunately, just 53 copies of the 2015 Ford Mustang were affected by the recall. But faulty seat belt sensors could actually be very dangerous.


VW Jetta and VW Beetle Being Recalled to Prevent Rear Suspension Collapse

VW Jetta and VW Beetle Being Recalled to Prevent Rear Suspension Collapse test 1-1

When the sixth-gen Volkswagen Jetta was released in 2010, purists railed against the new car’s bargain bin interior, and the lack of a standard multi-link rear suspension. A torsion beam suspension made the car cheaper to build, and the newly lowered price helped VW’s little compact to compete in the crowded C Segment. Naturally sales soared, and the Jetta faithful were appeased with the independently sprung Jetta GLI. But that cheap rear suspension seems to have bitten Volkswagen in the... ehm, rear, as they’re forced to recall 1.1 million Jettas and Beetles fitted with the torsion beam suspension.
