Ballin' on a Budget: 2003-2008 Infiniti FX test 1-1

When shopping for an affordable luxury SUV, you're likely to hear phrases like "heart/soul of a sportscar", or "racing heritage'. But that's usually marketing-speak for hard springs, big wheels, and a bodykit. The 2003–2008 Infiniti FX, on the other hand, actually does have the chassis of a sportscar (the Nissan 350Z), and it drives just as good as it looks. So let's have a look at the S50 Infiniti FX, because it's one sure-fire way to 'ball on a budget'.

Well, the Chicago Cubs won't be winning the World Series this year, but Back to the Future II got nearly everything else right. And to celebrate, Toyota has given us the truck that Marty would've driven, had he stayed in 2015. So let's dust off our Members Only jacket and check it out...

Domino's Pizza Gets Into the Car Business: Meet the Domino's DXP test 1-1

Domino's Pizza delivers some 400 million hot pizzas every year. That's a lot of calories, and a lot of dough (both literally and figuratively). So it makes sense that they would want to have their own custom delivery vehicles. To make this happen, the pizza giant teamed with Roush and a former General Motors R&D executive, to build 100 of these crowdsource-designed Domino's DXP delivery cars. Let's have a look (we promise, you'll be done reading this article in 30 minutes or less)...

GM Vehicles Recalled Over Faulty Ignition Switches and Airbags... Again test 1-1

Can lightning strike the same place twice? It would seem so, because General Motors is recalling a bunch of their 2014/2015 vehicles to fix bad ignition switches and Takada side airbags. Except this time, they issued the recalls before anybody got hurt...


Beater That's Hard To Beat: 2000 - 2004 Toyota Avalon

Beater That's Hard To Beat: 2000 - 2004 Toyota Avalon test 1-1

Conventional wisdom would suggest that a more expensive car is better made. But that's not always the case. Just try maintaining a used BMW or Land Rover without taking out a second mortgage. The 2000–2004 Toyota Avalon, on the other hand, was rather pricy when it was new, and it was made to a higher standard. It was luxurious, powerful, and extremely reliable. And that makes it a beater that's hard to beat...

German Officials Declare VW Too Big To Fail

German Officials Declare VW Too Big To Fail test 1-1

With the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal now reaching a crescendo in terms of fines and legal penalties, German officials have been hesitant to issue any form of criticism against the automaker with some even showing their support by revealing that the company is too big to fail. This statement was a recurring theme during the Great Recession, and it appears that VW's current dilemma has obviously raised alarm among some members of Germany's government who do not want to see one of its biggest corporations buckle under the financial and legal pressures imposed by the emission debacle.

Beater that's Hard to Beat: 2006-2011 Hyundai Azera test 1-1

When it comes to buying an affordable family sedan, most people stick with the obvious choices: Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Nissan Altima, Hyundai Sonata. But if you know what you're looking for, you can walk away with a used luxury car that will be just as reliable as a blue-chip family sedan. So let's have a look at the 2006-2011 Hyundai Azera. Because at $6,000–$12,000, it's a luxurious beater, that's hard to beat...
