Test Drive: East Coast Defender (video)

Or How To Love A Land Rover: Part Two, Defender. East Coast Defender is known to be the best Land Rover Defender builder in this country. But what does that mean anyway?

Test Drive: 2017 VW Golf Alltrack Isn’t Sexy & That’s Awesome

The perfect car is somewhat like the perfect man.  There really is no such thing. So it’s always a good idea to try a few (more than a handful, but less than say.. a football team, because that’s just gross) so you’ll know what’s out there before you decide on The One.

Test Drive Tuesday: 2017 Impreza Impressions

People often ask me to recommend a car that is AWD, safe, small & cost effective. You know who you are… This has never been an easy question for me to answer. But it got me thinking, ‘How Impressed Could An Impreza Driver Get If An Impreza Driver Was Impressed?’ So I drove one. Now, I don’t have to tell you that people love their...

Test Drive Tuesday: Chrysler Pacifica (Holy Cow It’s A) Hybrid

Minivans are kinda like sweatpants.  Every mom secretly loves them, but most never, ever want to be seen in them. No matter how practical, how easy, how economical it is,  a mini van, like sweatpants, just feels like you’ve given up.  The husband says “no, it’s totally cool”, “it’s kinda sexy” & “you look great”– we all know he’s either saying ‘please drive a cheap car...
