First Look: 2016 Honda Accord

So, to keep up with its competitors in the heavily contested family sedan segment in the U.S., Honda engineers are giving their popular mid-size entry a mid-cycle refresh for 2016. First Impression As may have been expected, the refresh is more of an evolution […]

Honda Civic With An Unnecessary Wing Spoiler Experience

Honda Civic With An Unnecessary Wing Spoiler Experience

My first day of driving was not what one would a call a typical “first day.” My dad and I went for a lot of early driving experiences around parking lots, in a low-mileage, first-gen Dodge Neon. Yes, the Neon that Jay Baruchel’s friends made fun of in the 2010 comedy “She’s Out of My […]

Honda Fit & Finish

Honda Fit & Finish

The 2016 Honda Fit holds a few best-in-class titles, including passenger space and cargo capacity.  It’s the definition of big things in small packages.  We took the 2015 Honda Fit for a spin back in January and found the cargo room to be one of it’s greatest strengths. Plus it’s kinda cute – although under the […]

Happily Ever Automotive After

Marketers often dream up “personas” for hypothetical clients; case studies of notional customers they believe represent idealized market segments. “Mary is a single mother of two with a college education and limited disposable income . . . ” “Chuck is a single professional, finished grad school, and just purchased his first home . . .” And […]

2018 Honda CR-Z: First Look

Illustration provided by Holiday Auto Magazine First Impressions Ladies and gentlemen, what we have is the possible rendering of the 2018 Honda CR-Z.  Our initial impressions of the next generation CR-Z is very good indeed.

2015 Honda CR-V AWD Touring Review

If the Honda CR-V were a flavor, it would probably be vanilla. Chocolate may have more of a following with some, but vanilla is still a favorite with many ice cream lovers. The Honda CR-V has been one of those small SUVs that has a wide appeal even if it’s not as hot as a chocolate […]

Look Who Wants To Make FCV Cars Popular

Look Who Wants To Make FCV Cars Popular

History FCVs, or Fuel Cell Vehicles, debuted in 1966, when GM made the Chevy Electrovan. However, at the time, they were very cost-ineffective. Therefore, GM put the idea on the backburner, and developed it without producing any more FCV cars for the next several decades.   It wasn’t until technology had caught up a bit with […]

What Is With All These Quasi-SUV Hatchback Cars??

What Is With All These Quasi-SUV Hatchback Cars??

Has anyone else noticed that we are neck deep in lifted, four door, wannabe suv cars all of the sudden?  What is with all these quasi-SUV hatchback cars? It seemed to start with the SUV based X6 in 2008. BMW took the perfectly good X5 and made it less useful. It had its roof hacked […]

2016 Acura NSX: Not Just for Iron Man Anymore.

So, Acura has FINALLY released the production version of the next gen NSX. We saw a concept in 2012 running around in The Avengers, but this is a real car. It may not look as exotic to me as the Ford GT that we posted about yesterday, but it has at least as much tech […]

2015 Honda Fit EX Review

2015 Honda Fit EX Review

When the bright Mystic Yellow Honda Fit arrived in my driveway for the week, I have to admit, I wasn’t too excited. I had just finished a fun week with the 431hp 2015 BMW M4, and now had to get into the 130hp compact car. It was a bit of a let down to say […]

Crazy Cars As you fine readers will come to find out, I have strange tastes in vehicles. I like crazy cars that sometimes don’t make a ton of sense to other people. This has led me to find some odd balls over the years in the US and had me yearning for all the strange […]

The 5 Ugliest Cars of 2014

We all can’t own beautiful cars, and that’s just a fact of life. There’s a reason the McLarens, Aston Martins, and Lamborghinis of the world come at such a high price. But just because everyone can’t own the best does not mean we have to settle for the absolute lowest of the low. Brands like […]
