2018 VW Tiguan: The Cure For Double Buckle Blues

Of course I’ve done it. You’ve probably done it too. And if think your mom didn’t do it, you’re nuts..unless they didn’t have them back then. Yes, of course I’m talking about The Double Buckle. Every parent’s dirty little secret.  It’s the process of squeezing two kids into one seat belt. ‘Not legal’ you say?  ‘Not safe?’ you retort? Well, you tell that to Emily,...

First Date: 2018 Ford Expedition, Platinum Edition

It may not be a politically correct thing to say, especially in So Cal, but I love me a big, luxurious, family car. The Ford Expedition is one of those vehicles. Not only can you go to Trader Joes, Target AND Costco, but you can put all kinds of annoying kids in the back and drive along without killing even a one. With the layout...

Here she is telling you all about it in her own words:   But the Chrysler...

Let’s talk about Acura’s latest entry into the SUV game.  The MDX has been around for a while, enjoying cult-like status among people who consider themselves too thrifty to buy a Mercedes and too spoiled to drive...

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...
