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...

Tuesday Test Drive: Jetta 1.8T SEL

18 years ago, I arrived in Los Angeles driving a Volkswagen Jetta GL.  I drove it across the country with the essentials– all of my bathing suits, every cd I owned and a change of underwear.  I drove from NYC to LA in 2 weeks and had an absolute blast.  I loved that car until my boyfriend totalled it on the way to pick up my...

Tuesday Test Drive: Find Your G-spot (..VW Golf that is)

Over the past two months, I’ve made it my mission to drive most versions of one of my favorite cars, the VW Golf. We all know that I’m a 911 freak, that the Volvo XC90 T8 is my jam and that I have dirty, dirty M3/M5 & X5m fantasies… but the Golf is just a great all around car. Where people get stuck is deciding...
