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...

Gurl Whatchu Drivin’? Toyota 4Runner Limited

The 4Runner.  It’s such a classic. It’s the car that’s almost a truck that THAT guy drove. You know the one you dated and then regretted post college? The 4Runner was perfect for guys like him because he was either a) a musician, b) a stoner/surfer, c) a mountain biker or d) all of the above.

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.

Where people get stuck is deciding...

Test Drive Tuesday: eGolf Cart It Is Not

It’s Tuesday, so #eWeek is over and my baby is gone.  I am truly heartbroken. Like any great love affair, ours was a complicated one. In just a week, he made me laugh, cry, made me stress eat a can of Pringles in one sitting, but also made me gasp with delight as we whizzed up 4800 feet incline without a drop a fuel. My...
