Mama’s Plug In Comparo: 4 Motorhead-Worthy Options

Hooray for Tesla! All hail the Prius! I say that with little to no sarcasm. Those vehicles have transformed the way that Americans see electric cars. Period. And that’s wonderful. But committing to one right now is kind of like marrying the first guy you have sex with– it’s lazy and discounts the fact that there’s a big, wide world out there filled with other...

Test Drive: Nissan’s Tasty & Green LEAF 2018

When I was 6 years old, I got a pair of scissors in my Christmas stocking and promptly proceeded to cut my own bangs. Needless to say, I wore a lot of hats that winter.

The warriors of the 101.  The badass battlers of the 5, 605, 105 and whatever other 5 freeway is out there.  We got this. We can handle it. We’ll leave that wacky car sharing stuff to you urban dwellers who live...

Girl, What Chu Drivin? Range Rover Sport HSE TD6

Once again, me and my pal Melanie Batenchuk team up to review the new Range Rover Sport HSE TD6.  This, my friends, is the diesel SUV we’ve all been waiting for.  Think about it, all smart trucks are what? Diesel. And an SUV is really a..yeah, you got it. But in all of this time, the ultimate luxury SUV has never been available in a...
