2016 Mazda CX-9 test 2

Normally, 3-row crossovers are about as interesting as a three-hour PBS documentary on The History of PBS. They're made to be functional family transporters, with a mildly stylistic nod to the Target fashionistas who drive them. The Mazda CX-9, on the other hand, was designed to make the driver not feel like a boring suburbanite. It had athletic reflexes, communicative steering, and an exciting V6. But even with all of its charm, sales were never that great. The completely redesigned 2016 Mazda CX-9 aims to change that, and it's going to do it in very unique way...

Mercedes Recalls 126k Cars for Unintended Airbag Deployment test 1-1

Airbags contain a deployment apparatus that allow them to pop out at up to 200 mph. With that much force at their disposal, an airbag is able to react to an impact almost instantly. But if you're just driving over, say, railroad tracks, a sudden airbag deployment could cause you to loose control and have a real accident. And then you wouldn't have an airbag to protect you. This is the problem facing certain Mercedes GLK and C-Class drivers. So let's have a look and see which models are being recalled...

While the kangaroo has often been known in popular media as a cute and cuddly mammal that hops along Australian forests and prairies all day, the stories hide the reality of just how dangerous things can become when these adorable animals and their wicked kicking power begin bounding across the road (similar to the problem faced by U.S. motorists in high deer areas).
