The transition from internal combustion engines (ICE) to electric vehicles (EV) is happening right before our eyes. Some automotive manufacturers are moving faster in this transition than others. Others are taking a more conservative approach. I believe this is the smarter play. So it’s wise…

TUESDAY, Sept. 20, 2022 (HealthDay News) -- They look so cute, grazing quietly in your backyard. But the overpopulation of white-tailed deer across the Northeastern United States could help spread Lyme disease and another tick-borne illness, anaplasmosis, especially in suburban areas, a new …

As gas prices have reached dizzying heights in the last few months, we’ve all started to pay more attention to our mileage and looked for ways to alleviate the pain at the pump. The demand for electric vehicles has never been higher, but they’re not a viable option for everyone. 

Living large can mean different things to different people. Whether it’s traveling or eating at nice restaurants or having a big house or your dream vehicle, living large is part of many people’s vision. And with times being what they are (inflation and high gas prices), the cost for living …

German cars are too expensive! That’s what I hear from a lot of people. And while this generalization is usually correct it’s not always applicable. Case in point, this week’s tester which is the 2022 Audi A3 which has a starting price of just over $35,000. Sure it’s small and not practical …

“Just the facts.” That’s the approach I’m taking for this week’s tester. I usually go that route along with some weird pop culture references mixed in and the occasional dad jokes. Reviewing vehicles for a living is so subjective. And opinions are just that – opinions. And I’ll skip the pop …

I wanted to get ducked. No this is not some weird autocorrect fail (which happens a lot to me). My tester this week comes with a fun, frivolous tradition amongst the die-hard Jeep community. If you drive a Wrangler, other Jeepers will place a rubber duck somewhere on your Jeep. Yes it’s sill…

Circular arguments are the worst. Especially when they occur on social media. This week’s tester sparked such a discussion with a couple of people who follow me on social media (you should follow me too @driversside). The argument was about the 2022 GMC Yukon Denali with a 3.0-liter turbo di…

The Jeep brand is on quite a roll lately. I’ve already driven and reviewed the outstanding Jeep Grand Wagoneer. I raved on that full-sized SUV as one of the best vehicles over the last several years. Coming in a notch behind that in both excellence and size is the Grand Cherokee L. The L por…

Who doesn’t like go-karts? No really, is there anyone who doesn’t like driving go-karts, I want to know. But seriously, getting to drive many different types of vehicles each year, I end up having a preference (call it a bias if you will). I like cars that are squatty, with turbos that drive…

For years Lexus vehicles have been stuck with the false narrative that they were just “glorified Toyotas.” In most cases, that’s simply not the case. The midsize Lexus ES is a case in point. Sure it shares some things with the fine, steady Toyota Camry, but it also is significantly different…

Remember the Jurassic Park movies where the T-Rex was feared and wreaked havoc throughout each film? Well this week’s tester has a name that is similar to the T-Rex and equally is the apex predator on the block when it comes to big, performance-oriented pickup trucks.

Two doors. Four doors. Hard top. Soft top. Sounds like I’m talking about the Jeep Wrangler, but no, in fact, I’m talking about the 2022 Ford Bronco, which makes a triumphant return to rival the Wrangler. Many enthusiasts have waited quite a long time for the Bronco to return.

Many people may not realize that Volkswagen is one of the top auto manufacturers in the world with revenues in the hundreds of billions. Sure you don’t see VWs as much here in the United States, although that’s slowly changing. But clearly the Volkswagen group knows what they’re doing about …

BMW still hangs on to that advertising moniker of The Ultimate Driving Machine. And they’ve earned it. Following up on a recent test drive of the 4-door model of this car, I jumped at the chance to put the 2-door version through its paces around Atlanta on a recent trip there.

In the world of small trucks there used to be the Toyota Tacoma and then no one else. Well, technically there were other trucks, but none could compete with the best-selling Tacoma. So Nissan got busy redesigning and reworking the Frontier to see if it could compete with the Tacoma.
