Car ReviewsLoading
  • 2014 Cadillac ELR

    "Personally, I had nothing to complain about in my week with the car, just like I’d have nothing to complain about if someone gave me carte blanche to privately play all the Pebble Beach golf courses on the Monterey Peninsula for a week. You don’t complain when someone hands you a jewel. And yeah, this ELR is all of that." (AutoGlo)
  • 2015 Acura RDX

    2015 Acura RDX

    "I will concede that $40,000 for a motor vehicle is indeed a hefty chunk of change in this day and age. And I know that the auto-selling business is so competitive now that automakers are stuffing more and more standard perks into their products in an effort to draw the ever-wandering eyes of consumers. But frankly, after doing a line-by-line comparison of standard features in the RDX with competitors’ similar offerings, I concluded that the RDX fits fairly and nicely in this entry-level, luxo SUV segment. And you can take that to the bank." (AutoGlo)

  • 2014 Hyundai Azera

    "Overall, this Azera is a no-brainer “B-plus” of a car, and upon further reflection, I’d say an “A-minus” is the decidedly more accurate grade. And at this price, consider it a worthy back-to-school special." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Accord PHEV

    2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring Sedan and 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid

    "Here’s a sign of the times: I recently tested two environmentally friendly Honda Accords, and the plug-in version was easily the sexier of the two." (AutoGlo)
    Honda | Wieck
  • 2014 Subaru Forester 2.0XT

    "Over the years, I’ve driven something like a dozen versions of the Subaru Forester, a sport-utility vehicle that basically wrote the book on combining on-road sophistication with macho off-road ruggedness. But I’ve never driven a better Forester than the 2014 model with which I recently spent a week. It was smoother, stronger, better-looking and more comfortable inside than any other in the long line of Foresters I’ve previously wheeled around." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SEL sedan

    "For all its surprising, beastly oomph, my Jetta was quite civilized on the inside. The long list of standard comfort and convenience features included satellite radio, a power sunroof, heated front seats, rear seat pass-through via armrest, front fog lights, heated exterior power mirrors and more." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan

    "Overall grade: A solid 'B.' But again, a smallish SUV going for almost $38,000 is not going to be everybody’s cup of tea. I’m sure the Tiguan is a comparatively mundane, run-around, second car in households with daily drivers wearing Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac or Lexus badges, but nobody said life was fair. If you have the kind of coin to drop on a VW Tiguan R-Line, I salute you. You’re getting a good one." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Buick LaCrosse

    "Overall, this LaCrosse holds its own amid the feature-loaded, glittery competition. It’s a solid “B” or “B-plus” of an American sedan. Is this Buick worth knowing? Absolutely. If you haven’t test driven a Buick passenger car in a long time, this LaCrosse is a ride worthy of your time." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Infiniti Q60 Coupe Journey

    "For me, the bottom line with this Q60 was that it was a great 'Fantasy Week' car, which is a short way of saying I enjoyed every minute motoring around in a machine that is beyond the reality of my household budget. The Q60 might not be as instantly recognizable as, say, a Corvette or a horsepower-laden Mustang or a Camaro, but it offers comparable levels of exhilaration and fun that you get in those sporty rides." (AutoGlo)
  • 2015 Infiniti QX80

    Infiniti QX80

    "Bottom line, this QX80 is a giant-size luxury liner of the highest order…royalty if you will. And while it might not be for me – or even within purchase reach by throwing in my life savings – it is pretty incredible for what it is. For the big luxo SUV-loving set, it has earned an “A” grade for sure." (AutoGlo)
    Nissan | Wieck
  • 2014 Nissan Rogue

    2014 Nissan Rogue SL

    "Nice rework here, Nissan engineers and designers. The Rogue was a solid “B” prior to the 2014 model year, and I’d say it has moved into “B-plus” territory in its latest skin. I’m apparently not alone in my feelings as the 2014 Rogue has been pulling down national awards in multiple categories for months." (AutoGlo)
    Nissan | Wieck
  • 2014 Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0T

    "Look, I know other hugely popular midsize sedan offerings offer much of what the 2014 Sonata has, but frankly, Hyundai dishes up huge portions of perks for a price that often defies logic. Oh, and you get Hyundai’s super warranties in the deal as well." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Ford Escape Titanium

    "This Escape is a solid B-plus vehicle, and even at the top trim level, it offers a lot to motorists who need utility and versatility." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk

    "I enjoyed my relatively civilized week in the Trailhawk and highly recommend it to folks whose idea of getting gone is heading deep into the woods, driving over streams or climbing over rocky surfaces." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Kia Soul !

    "The Soul remains a cool-looking vehicle aimed at folks who want a cool ride that won’t drain their bank accounts. Kia has put a lot of thought and work into styling, perks and special features that accentuate the Soul’s hip factor. In the final analysis, they’ve done a good job of producing a feel-good car." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer GT

    "Overall, the Lancer GT gets a rock-solid “B” grade, and if you’re looking for a sporty car that won’t prompt you to apply for a second mortgage, this is your ride." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Lexus IS 350

    "Lexus has thrown so much into the newest IS that it’s hard to figure out where to start. Good looks, good perks, high performance and lap-of-luxury interior features made the $41,700 starting price on the tested IS 350 AWD sedan seem like a steal." (AutoGlo)
  • x

    2014 Hyundai Tucson

    "It’s a fairly priced, yet nicely equipped SUV that will do the job without bringing your savings account to its knees." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Lexus GX 460

    "Overall, this GX 460 is top-level transportation for the economically fortunate set, and I, for one, enjoyed every minute of my week in the vehicle." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Lexus ES

    "As feel-good-about-gas-mileage luxury liners go, you’d be hard pressed to find anything better than this." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Hyundai Equus Ultimate

    "Would I buy an Equus against comparative hardware made by Lexus, Acura, Infiniti or Mercedes-Benz? I’m not sure I can answer that, but the fact that the Equus is even in that discussion speaks volumes." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Chevrolet Malibu 2LT

    "Looking for an affordable, American-made midsize sedan stuffed with much more than you’d expect from a car priced in the 20s? This ’Bu might be for you." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Chevrolet Silverado High Country

    2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

    "Overall, the Silverado remains a solid “A” grade pickup, with all the tools needed for the road, the job site or the ranch/farm. Thanks to GM for not messing up a very good thing." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Volkswagen Passat SEL

    "The Passat might not have enough flash for some folks, but it has so much of everything else that people look for in a passenger car that you walk away asking, 'Who really needs flash, anyway?'" (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Fiat 500L

    "So, if you’ve been wanting a Fiat that has more than a major cute factor going for it, this 500L Lounge is likely worth a serious look. This vehicle is right out of the Mini Cooper playbook – a beefier version of the basic ride." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Toyota Highlander Limited

    "Be advised that the tested Highlander will probably challenge the household budgets of most shoppers looking for basic SUV convenience. On the other hand, if you’ve been pondering loaded SUVs priced in the $50,000s and $60,000s and want something just as good for a fraction of that cost, consider reconfiguring your nav system to find the most direct route to the nearest Toyota dealership." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Ford Focus Titanium

    "Ford has been very clever in the perk-heavy, good fuel mileage, affordable passenger car niche, and the Ford Focus is Exhibit A in that department." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Acura RLX

    2014 Acura RLX

    "When an all-new 2014 Acura RLX sedan showed up looking like a freeway-tooled version of a stealth fighter jet, I'm happy to tell you that my pulse picked up big-time." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage ES

    "Mitsubishi has engineered this car to be an affordable transporter within reach of young motorists, and those who just want a reliable, seriously fuelish second ride that can do the chores that the household's big SUV or sedan do while burning up buckets full of gas." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Kia Forte

    "Personally, I’m always skeptical of highly publicized “all-new” versions of car models that have been on the market for some time. You’re either underwhelmed or disappointed amid myriad changes. Not so, this third-generation Forte." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Acura MDX

    2014 Acura MDX

    "Bottom line: The revamped MDX stands particularly tall in a luxury SUV segment that offers well-heeled buyers so much in so many packages. For those fortunate enough to afford the fare, the MDX belongs on your test drive list." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Toyota Tundra 4X2 CrewMax Limited

    "With so much competition in the pickup segment, and so many variations to choose from, it’s a brutal environment in which to gain public attention. The various automakers are throwing everything and the kitchen sink into these broad-shouldered pickups. Does the new-gen Tundra stack up with the current competition? From my seat, a no-brainer yes." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Scion tC

    "I know it’s easy to talk Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla when you’re pondering a first new car for your kids, but this Scion tC needs to be on that test-drive list as well. It stacks up quite well against the venerable competition, in every category." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Nissan Versa Note

    2014 Nissan Versa Note

    "But calling the 2014 Nissan Versa Note an entry-level vehicle doesn’t really cover it. Entry-level warrior is more like it. Exceedingly popular. Liberally appointed. Decidedly affordable. And, oh yes, all-new for the 2014 model year." (AutoGlo)

  • 2014 Infiniti QX70

    "This is a highway cruiser that makes a 100-mile jaunt seem like a springtime skip in the park. You don’t want to get out of the vehicle after a mere 100 miles. A 300-mile cruise with sweetly amplified music, comfortable seating and rock-solid handling is actually something to look forward to in this QX70." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

    "Hate to call this a compromise car, but I mean that in a good way. Maybe you’re looking for a nicely appointed sedan for $35,000 or more, but if that was my money to spend, I’d compromise and take the Altima for a serious test drive. You might find that your compromise was really the only logical choice from the beginning." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Chevrolet Impala 2LTZ

    "This latest Impala will do little to damage its status as America’s standard-bearer amid a sea of monster-selling, foreign-made passenger cars. Impala has been the nation’s top-selling full-size sedan since 2004 and periodically challenged the Camry-Civic-Corolla-Accord powerhouses for the overall top-seller spot in some populous states during that time." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013-14 Lexus RX 350 F SPORT

    "Overall, this is a grade-A vehicle all the way, perfectly placed in the practical-size luxury SUV segment. If money is not necessarily a concern, you can shorten your list of crossover SUV test drives to this venerable Lexus model." (AutoGlo)

  • 2013-14 Toyota Avalon Hybrid

    "I had the sense driving the Avalon Hybrid that, if economics could be thrown out the window, every household in the United States should have this car for its everyday use – a fuel-saving, super-safe and comfortable transporter of kids, cargo and friends." (AutoGlo)

    Video review

  • 2013 Chrysler 200 Limited

    "This 200 is worth your time as well. Look it over, and I bet you’ll be impressed by its sporty Euro exterior and sweetly laid-out interior. But most of all, drive it .... Chrysler’s 200 might not be getting the same attention its competitors receive, and that’s a shame. This ride is a player in a crowded field." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Honda Crosstour

    2013 Honda Crosstour

    "On the fly, the comparatively high-riding Crosstour is nothing like an SUV. It’s a nicely performing sedan all the way, with more than enough power provided by a 3.5-liter V-6 rated at 278 horsepower." (AutoGlo)
    Honda | Wieck
  • 2014 Toyota Corolla L sedan

    "This Corolla looks like a strong candidate as a backup worker in a two-car household. Take the Caddy to the country club if you’re that fortunate, but let the Corolla make the milk runs. Bottom line: This 11th-generation model looks, and feels, very good for its age." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Toyota RAV4

    "The RAV4 is a dream to drive. It’s instantly responsive, quiet and darn-near a small sports car performer when its dodging through heavy traffic." (AutoGlo)
  • 2014 Kia Cadenza

    "This full-size sedan is downright luxurious, loaded with pleasing comfort/convenience features. From its jewel-like headlights to its nicely sculpted back end, the Cadenza is a head-turning bit of classy artwork." (AutoGlo)

    Video Review

  • 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander 3.0

    "With a 3-liter V-6 churning out 224 horsepower, performance was not a problem. Ditto city driving, hill climbing and every-man-for-himself freeway commutes. The six-cylinder power plant has nearly 60 more horsepower than the down-one-step four-cylinder job, and I was glad for it. Fuel mileage suffered only slightly at 20 miles per gallon in the city and 28 mpg on the highway." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

    "Overall, the Santa Fe maintains the charms that have prompted me to recommend it to prospective SUV buyers for years. Lots of goodies for the right price." ()
  • 2013 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

    2013 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

    "All said, I’d still put the Civic on your top-five list of starter cars and young family transporters. Ditto a reliable second car for rolling around town while the daily commuter is in the garage on weekends." (AutoGlo)
    Honda | Wieck
  • 2013 BMW Z4 sDrive35is

    "I tried to ignore the other numbers, like a bottom line of nearly $70,000 on the sticker and so-so fuel mileage ratings of 17 miles per gallon in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. This is an open-road performance car, so it’s OK to purge all feelings of price and fuel-consumption guilt and just enjoy the ride. " (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Volkswagen Touareg Hybrid

    "And there’s this: a starting price of $62,575 on the Touareg Hybrid. That’s a significantly hefty sticker and translates to: You’d better make sure you absolutely want and love this SUV before you sign the check in the dealer’s finance office." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD

    "This S60 is made for a certain customer … which is to say one with a six-figure income who loves both safety features and horsepower highs." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Nissan Sentra SL

    "For me, driving the top-of-the-seven-trim-line Sentra SL, all this meant a surprisingly peppy and agile car that young families would likely be happy to have. And keep in mind that my top-tier Sentra had a starting price of only $19,760." (AutoGlo)

  • 2014 Mazda6 i

    "The past design of the Mazda6 did little to turn my head, but the tweaks on this new arrival got my attention. Pronounced fenders, big mouth street-racer grille, eagle-eye-shaped headlamps and a decidedly spread-out look at the four wheels that all but screamed midsize sportiness." (AutoGlo)

    Video Review

  • 2013 BMW 328i

    "Sure, there are affordable midize niches, loaded compacts and perks-laden luxury cars, but the 3 Series is a player in a segment that bespeaks the ideal: relatively affordable, yet luxurious; performance-heavy; brilliantly engineered; safe and a just-the-right-size car." (AutoGlo)

  • 2013 Hyundai Sonata PZEV sedan

    "Hyundai has won a lot of converts this way, and frankly, I’m amazed that so many people still opt for other automaker’s offerings when Hyundai offers a much more feature-loaded equivalent of the same car for a substantially lower price." (AutoGlo)

    Video review

  • 2014 Mazda CX-5

    "I realize there are folks out there with young families and lots of gear, and the CX-9 is likely going to be your cup of tea. But for me, the CX-5 is a spot-on choice for a driver that likes good ride height, the ability to carry a good number of folks and passengers every now and then and an easy-handling SUV that makes a daylong road trip seem not all that tiring." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Honda Pilot

    "The Pilot is sort of the antithesis of what Honda is right now, a champion builder of fuelish, smallish cars. But the Honda folks also recognize that demand for a beefy SUV still exists, the better to serve large families rolling on frequent road trips and kids’ athletic teams needing to transport equipment and future all-stars." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Cadillac ATS 2.0T

    "Cadillac has done so much on the techno end that it’s easy to lose track that the most enjoyable things about the ATS are robust performance, excellent handling, stop-on-a-dime braking and rock-solid slalom capabilities." (AutoGlo)

  • 2014 Kia Sorento SX

    "It’s sleeker, more attractive, better handling, smoother and a bit stronger than its predecessor. That’s pretty much what you want in an upgrade, right?" (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Lexus GS 450h

    "It’s hard to imagine a better car for taking a long trip. You have all the interior luxuries, performance as needed and plentiful comfort. And again, with its fuelish ways, even a cross-country adventure won’t crush your wallet." (AutoGlo)

  • 2013 Lexus LS 460

    "For all its power and luxury, the exterior look is actually pretty understated. It’s elegant enough, with just dash of sportiness, but you don’t see needless wings and sharp-angle cuts on the car, which is fine with me. The car makes plenty of statements on its own, sans frills." (AutoGlo)

    CNET Video Review

  • 2013 Ford C-MAX Energi

    "I found the C-MAX Energi to be a pretty deep-in-the-seats home run, given its technology, comfort and performance. That’s pretty good, considering I went in expecting two-base hit, at best, from a brand-new U.S. offering." (AutoGlo)

    CNET Video Review

  • 2013 BMW X5

    "OK, this X5 is definitely in the high-end category, ideal for individuals whose annual stock dividends would pay for all the services in a typical American county. So if you are in that prosperous group, wedge this X5 in somewhere amid your planned test drives of the Mercedes-Benz and Land Rover offerings." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Toyota Venza

    "Here’s the thing: This newly restyled Venza absolutely convinces as an SUV when viewed in profile. And it’s a sweet-handling sedan in virtually every other aspect. Even in profile, the roofline is low enough to make you think this is a passenger sedan with a liftback tail. Certainly a crossover, in anybody’s book." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Honda Accord EX

    "The Accord is as good as it has ever been. Honda dealers, better figure on selling a few more zillion of ’em." (AutoGlo)

  • 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek

    "It’s the do-or-die rule of auto making: If you’re going to make something new, make it eye-catching. And wow, that was the case with this XV Crosstrek, with Impreza hatchback DNA and stepping in for the Subaru Outback Sport." (AutoGlo)

    CNET Video Review

  • Mazda CX-9

    "As I said, driving the CX-9 was an entirely comfortable experience, and frankly, the 3.7-liter V-6 with 273 horsepower performed at a level higher than those numbers would indicate. Best of all, the CX-9 had about zero body sway on sharp corners taken at high speed." (AutoGlo)
  • 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye

    "Here’s my advice: Go take a look at this car, even if you don’t plan to buy one. You’ll like what you see. Yes, the Dart had a truckload of pre-release hype. But in this case, the car lives up to the publicity." (AutoGlo)

    2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE

    "Given what’s coming next year, I’d absolutely understand a buyer putting the Patriot on a list for basic transportation to handle SUV chores that include hauling kids, sports equipment and all manner of gear. And I’m guessing that Jeep dealers will be more than willing to haggle on the base price of the 2013 model ($22,880 on the tester) as this year goes on." (AutoGlo)

    "I don’t know if it was the two doors or something else, but folks kept running up to the stopped car and asking me what it was … and where could they get one. I’m no marketing expert, but I take this trend as a positive sign if I’m laboring for Hyundai." (AutoGlo)

    “Like its sibling, the Elantra hatchback, the Elantra Coupe could use a little more power. But with its stylish exterior, well-appointed interior, driving comfort, good overall visibility, superior gas mileage and indusrtry-best warranty, it would be difficult to find a better value in a coupe.” (The Weekly Driver)

  • 2012 Fiat 500c Lounge Cabrio

    "This Fiat was a fantastic city performer, capable of zippy sprints and agile moves in tight parking spaces. On the highway, while it locks in nicely at 70 miles per hour on the cruise control, you really have to keep your foot in it to maintain that speed without the cruise." (AutoGlo)

    "Strictly based on sheer fun, the Fiat 500c won me over easily. If all those other considerations like price, efficiency, practicality, etc., are added to the equation, the Fiat slips a few notches. But why bother with all those nuances when you’re having so much fun?" (The Weekly Driver),p> CNET Video Review

  • 2013 Acura ILX sedan

    "Acura calls it the brand’s new 'gateway' car, which is auto industry-speak for 'you might want to try this one first because it’s a practical and relatively affordable ride in our luxury-heavy lineup.' The bottom line is, yes, I’d agree with all that." (AutoGlo)

    "The ILX is Acura’s smallest and least expensive model. But the description doesn’t fit the car. The ILX has a lot to offer, including strong acceleration and overall power and a smooth, steady ride. For many manufacturers, the ILX just wouldn’t be considered an entry-level vehicle. That speaks well for the car and the manufacturer." (The Weekly Driver)

    "If you're named iQ, it's not a good thing in automotive industry if you're also nicknamed 'Lack of iQ' Certainly that's not the case with the new Scion. However strange it may sound, because of its efficient use of space and steadiness on the freeway, among other qualities, the iQ is the best 94 horsepower car money can buy." (The Weekly Driver)

    "Toyota Prius c, 2012: At less than $20,000 and 53 mpg, it’s all the rage." (The Weekly Driver)

    2013 Acura RDX AWD

    "You want luxury, performance and safety in an SUV for a reasonable price? You probably want the latest RDX." (AutoGlo)

    "Many sport utility vehicles seem the same today. But the new Acura RDX has its own traits, most notably, it's quick, comfortable and well designed. That adds up to an SUV that stands out in a traffic jam or anywhere else." (The Weekly Driver)

  • 2012 Hyundai Azera

    "When it rolled out at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2011, the extensively reworked Azera drew much-deserved oohs and ahhs from the usually jaded auto press corps. Jaded or not, they knew a good thing when they saw it." (AutoGlo)

    "The old Hyundai Azera sedan was solid, although bland. But with swoopy new styling, more power and lots of features, the redone 2012 model that arrived this spring makes the car stand out." (The Weekly Driver)
