Kia Recalls 5,000 Forte Units test 1-1

For some time now, Kia has been making quite the climb up the caste system of car companies, from lowly newcomer on to serious contender for entry-level supremacy.  But over the course of time, even the best efforts of things don't always go as planned. Those of you who may own a 2013 Forte model built between September 10–October 31 of 2012 may be victim to some of those unplanned events. It seems that there are a total of 5,245 Forte models that may have been produced with seatbelt retractor retainer plates that have screws that weren't properly tightened.

Review of the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class:  Another one?! test 1-1

Over the last few years, it feels like every other day we are seeing yet another new SUV, mini-SUV, pseudo-SUV, or whatever new kind of class designation car companies come up with to describe what are essentially small trucks that drive like cars. There is no shortage out there, and the newest fad is 'the smaller-the-better' theory of SUV-making that is becoming all the rage. Car/trucks like the Honda HRV or the Mazda CX-3 are on the forefront of this ever-expanding class. With their recent success, it should be no surprise that higher-end car companies have had the idea that if this compact SUV segment can be successful in the mid-class price range, then surely there are probably plenty of well-off people that might also want a truck of similar proportions, with a bit nicer decor. So in theory, if it's built, they will come. Enter the newest model to the fray:  The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.

1966 Velorex 16/350 test 2

People in my profession—and outside it, too, I suppose—have always railed against government “interference” in the production of vehicles. Sure, the seat belt was a good idea, but airbags, “safety” bumpers, and—more recently—the laundry list of electronic nannies like automatic braking and stability control?

Review of the 2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder: It's about time.

2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder test 2

Nineteen years ago, Porsche inadvertently created a monster. In their quest to bring some new blood into their lineup, they created a car in the Boxster that was actually too good for its time. How can that be, you ask?  Well, because Porsche purists basically worship a flawed god. For the last half-century or so, the 911 has been the face of the Porsche faithful, but its rear-engine/rear-drive setup has always been its biggest source of character, as well as its biggest Achilles heel. It has been something that Porsche engineers have in some ways acknowledged, and have been trying to overcome. And while their progress has been good, the appearance of the Boxster with its mid-engine setup and nearly perfect weight balance seemed to all but set the 911 back decades.
