Freak Of The Week: Mr. Off-Road X5

There are few things that the BMW X5 is great for. These things include: Costco runs, surf trips and picking up overseas visitors from the airport. I should know, I’m currently on my third.

NO!” Let’s face it, holding my tongue has never been my forte. (sorry Amy, love you!)

Test Drive Tuesday: X5 vs XC90

This week’s test drive features a friend of mine whose car needs an upgrade.  She’s the lovely and talented Stacie Burrows, who is one half of the most awesome duo Mommy Tonk.  Stacie wants an SUV with a third row that’s fuel efficient, fun to drive, safe and sexy–kinda just like her.  Now, because so many of you text, email and tell me on social that...
