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,...

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.

Dear VW, Hell Hath No Fury..

… like a Hippie scorned! I am lucky enough to live in a hippie enclave just outside of Los Angeles.  Because, let’s face it, hippies are better than yuppies! But here’s the thing about hippies, while they’re mainly mellow, cheery pacifists, you really don’t want to piss them off.  Here are the things that generally irritate this delicate demographic: *Republicans (all flavors) *Wars (all flavors)...

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...
