GM Outsourcing Van Production To AM General??? test 1-1

General Motors has a runaway hit on its hands with the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks, and this strong success could possibly be forcing GM to rethink some of its internal operations, especially in regards to its commercial van division, if a letter released by the company to workers in Wentzville, Missouri, is to be believed.


Great Cars That Nobody Bought: 2008-2013 Volvo C30

Great Cars That Nobody Bought: 2008-2013 Volvo C30 test 1-1

On American roads, the 2008–2013 Volvo C30 is a bit of a unicorn. It's a sexy three-door hatchback that offers loads of style and a surprising amount of performance. Problem was, it was built by your mother's favorite car company, and nobody outside of her garden club even knew that it existed. Which is too bad, because this Volvo P1800 successor had a lot to offer...

Will Volkswagen Shutter Phaeton Assembly Plant? test 1-1

Amid the ever-growing fallout that is a result of Dieselgate, Volkswagen could be forced to make some drastic moves to cut costs to weather the storm, including the closure of the firm's plant in Dresden, thus ending production of the ultra-luxurious Phaeton sedan.

450,000 copies of the Ford Fusion/Mercury Milan recalled over fire risk test 1-1

When the refreshed Ford Fusion / Mercury Milan debuted in 2010, they were hot cars. Midsize stalwarts like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord finally had serious American competition. And now the popular Ford twins could become 'hot' for another reason. A very bad reason...


 

Flashback: Chevrolet Silverado 454 SS

Flashback: Chevrolet Silverado 454 SS test 1-1

Back in 1990, engines were still measured in cubic inches, and single-digit fuel economy didn't matter. It was a glorious time; to celebrate, Chevrolet unleashed a big-block sport version of its wildly popular Silverado pickup truck. This black beast had sinister looks, a wild exhaust note, and an ozone-chomping 454 cu-in V8 under the hood. America's Heartbeat had definitely skipped a few beats...


Review Of The "Hard Chargin" 2015-2016 Charger

Review Of The "Hard Chargin" 2015-2016 Charger test 1-1

If we are being honest with ourselves, America, we haven't been very good at producing many sedans worth talking about. Sad to say, but unfortunately it's true. Over the past few decades, Chevy, Ford, and Chrysler have produced a very minimal amount of four door fantasy cars, and instead have come out with things like the Ford Fusion, Chevy Malibu, and the Chrysler 200, all of which leave us simply wanting, and needing, more from our domestic distributors. These cars are passable, sure, but they don't inspire us like some of their competitors from BMW, Audi, and even Acura.  


Beater That's Hard To Beat: 2003-2008 Mazda6

Mazda6 Four Door Sedan test 2

For some people, a sportscar is just too small, and a Camry is just too boring. A BMW M5 would be the natural family car choice. But if you're reading this article, then you already know that you can't afford one. Driving pleasure is still within your reach, however, because, once upon a time, Mazda decided to become the 'BMW of Japan'. In 2003, they created the midsize Mazda 6, and, like most Bimmers, it drives just as it looks...


Next Generation Nissan GT-R Delayed Till 2020???

Next Generation Nissan GT-R Delayed Till 2020??? test 1-1

When the Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo was first unveiled, it was thought that it would preview many of the design cues that would make their appearance on the next generation GT-R supercar. However, if rumors are proven to be correct, it also previews the year when the next generation will arrive. That could mean a long delay—as long as 10 years potentially—leaving the GT-R in the dust when rivals such as Ferrari and Lamborghini update their offerings for the foreseeable future. 


Tesla Recalls Every Single Model S Ever Made

Tesla Recalls Every Single Model S Ever Made test 1-1

Tesla has always marched to the beat of their own drum. And when it comes to handling safety recalls, other car manufacturers could learn a thing or two from the Silicon Valley newcomer. They recently discovered a safety issue on one car, so just to be safe, they're recalling every Model S that they've ever made...


2016 Mazda CX-9 - Not Your Mother's CUV

On: Fri, Nov 20, 2015 at 10:07AM | By: Teddy Field


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...


The Cars Shine At Alfa's Un-museum

Alfa Museo test 2

A stroke of luck allowed a recent visit to the recently re-opened Alfa-Romeo museum, located just on the outskirts of Milan, in Arese, near the site of the now-demolished old factory.
